Spring Cleaning Challenge, halfway through the month and I have only completed two things on my list. Time to get busy! Next up my car! Cars need organization love too!
2. Clean Out Refrigerator
4. Nightstand Drawer
5. Tupperware Drawer
6. Switch Seasonal Clothing
8. Air Registers
10. Clean Out Kitchen Drawer
First things first, clean out the junk! I never seem to be able to get everything out of the car, at the end of the day. This means things start to pile up. The usual culprits are coats, cups, toys, bags, you name it. Time to empty it out and put everything away.
Next, I emptied all of the junk from the cup holder area and gave the entire car a good vacuum! Nice… look at all those crumbs! Once the car was clean, I wanted to add some organization. My car (Yukon XL) has a large space in front of the cup holders. It is great, but it ends up being a dumping ground for junk! It needed some organizational structure!
I wanted to divide the space, so I chose these clear containers from The Container Store. They are all different sizes, so you can customize your space. They are super inexpensive, ranging from $2.99 to $4.99 each. This is how they look in my car. I love it already!
The next step is my favorite… loading my things back into the space. Now, I have a space for coins, ear buds, pens, sunglasses, gum, phone wallet and a notepad. It looks amazing and makes me happy every time I get in the car!
Next, I needed something for the back of the car, between my kids seats. I wanted something to hold paper towels, movies and toys, diapers and wipes, first aid kit, etc… I chose this bin from The Container Store. It fits perfectly in between the seats and helps keep the back of the car organized!
I spend a lot of time in my car, so why not make it lovely?!
