I fell off the blog world planet and into the abyss. It was nice out there! But I hopped on a homemade, Pinterest-inspired rocketship and now I’m back! For the time being.
I guess I just didn’t know if anyone was even remotely interested in what I had to say. I don’t have elaborate stories to tell, but rather just discoveries/activities that I make day-to-day.
But anyway, I organized my car and I’d like to share my tips!
I’m really into organizational accessories right now, because when things get out of place (and they do quite often), I love when they have a place to go back to. Ideally, I’d like to have a series of organizing posts from bedroom to bathroom to kitchen, and so on.
I’m not a fan of clutter in my car, so I have a few tricks to keep everything tucked away.
I’ll start off in the trunk. I keep hardly anything in my trunk, and that’s good because that’s the place where everything I buy has to go.
I keep a storage tote containing a towel, an umbrella, reusable grocery shopping bags and a spare pair of flip flops ($4 from Joe Fresh). These totes will also come in handy during school, because I can keep all my notebooks and textbooks organized in one. I also keep a box of Kleenex under the seat and a portable container of moist towelettes in the back cup holder.
In the centre console, I keep a few necessities/emergency items, mainly a hair tie, bobby pins, bandaids, tampons, iPhone charger, a comb and I guess my student card.
Underneath the console is a little groove for spare change, but I have found it to be perfect to keep a little bottle of Febreeze to keep my car smelling fresh.
In the glove compartment, I keep my ownership/insurance for all those times I get pulled over, a lint roller and a notepad + pen. All that is pretty easy to imagine. For my dash, I just keep my USB cord there to so I can charge my iPhone and play music.
And that’s it! I don’t keep a garbage bag in my car — I just throw everything in the side compartment on the door and empty it out once a week.
And I guess that’s it for my first post back in two months! A lot is new, some things big, some miniscule. I welcome anyone to ask questions, or wait (with breath that is baited — ten points for whomever knows where that’s from) for my next post to find out all that is new. Also, if you like the organizing posts, I would love to do a series. Most of the search engine terms are organizational, so I figure I can build on that.
Ciao for now!
