Save time — and your sanity — by taking a few minutes to organize your car. It’s a great way to keep messes at bay and ensure that you can find what you need when you need it.
Glove compartment organization
If your glove compartment is a bit chaotic, there’s an easy fix for that. Purchase some small folders, label them, and use them for insurance information, service records, and other papers. An expandable organizer or folder would also be a good solution.
Center console organization
Is your center console overflowing with loose change, pens, charging cables, and other random items? Impose some order by placing a handbag organizer on the console. You could even make your own center console organizer using a cardboard box.
Whether you’re hauling kids or traveling solo, it’s easy for the back seat to fill up with everything from trash to toys. Keep a tote or plastic box on hand to organize your children’s stuff. You could also hang a shower caddy or remote holder on the back of the front seat to keep important items in one spot. For trash, a plastic bag tucked inside a cereal container makes a handy receptacle.
To organize the tools, jumper cables, and emergency kit items in your trunk or cargo hold, grab a box or tote. You may also want to stash a laundry basket back there — it’s a great way to keep groceries secure, and you can also use it to reduce back-and-forth trips between the vehicle and the house.
