As moms we spend a good portion of our time in the car. Try these 5 hacks to keep your car organized so you can enjoy the ride.
1. Change Organzier
We all have spare change floating around in our car. Maybe it’s rattling around in your cupholder or clanking in the glovebox. Could be lost in corners of your console. A good hack for keeping that change contained/organized is to use an empty gum container. It keeps it all in one place with a handy flip top lid for easy access. It even fits nicely in a cupholder.
2. Car Headrest Hooks
These headrest hooks could be the solution for a plethora of car organizational problems. They would give you a place to hang your purse where you could still easily have access to it. It would be a great place to hang the bag or two of groceries that you just purchased and don’t want rolling off the seat or around on the floor. Kids could hang their backpacks on them on the way to and from school. This hack has so many uses that will help your car stay more organized. These headrest hooks come in a pack of 4 and can be bought on Amazon.
3. iPad Holder Hack
On road trips having an iPad for the kids to watch a movie on is a great way to keep the peace. Infarrantly Creative has a tutorial for a car’s headrest iPad holder. It only takes some elastic and fabric to create this little lifesaver. It will help keep your electronic device safe during your ride and allows for more eyes to view the show more easily. A great diy hack to keep your car organized.
Check out this carabiner hack. The carabiner easily clips to a handle in your car and allows you to attach backpacks, grocery bags, purses, the options are endless. My favorite idea with the carabiner is to attach a second one to make it a little longer. The extra length makes it within arms reach of the kids riding in your car. So they can store their own stuff like the sunglasses case in this picture and reach it themselves when they need it. Awesome hack to keep your car organized.
5. Gap Filler
Nothing is more annoying in the car then dropping something down the dreaded gap. You know that space between your seat and the console. The endless pit where you have to stretch your arm to its limits to try and retrieve your dropped cell phone, pen, or change. This organizational tip will save you from the dreaded gap. You can purchase a gap filler console organizer from Amazon. It slides right down in the gap and not only stops things from going to the Bermuda Triangle of the car but can be used to store things as well. It’s the perfect hack for your car organization.
If you feel like you spend half of your life in your car then why not make it as organized as your home. Give one of these 5 hacks to keep your car organized a try and enjoy the journey.
