Knowing how to keep your car clean and organized is a super important skill for anyone to have.
Pre Kids: My car was so clean, you could eat off the floor.
Post Kids: I could seriously feed the entire kindergarten class with the snacks on my car floor.
Pre Kids: My trunk was gloriously empty and could hold any amount of anything.
Post Kids: My trunk is full with every freakin’ thing, including but not limited to reusable grocery bags (that I forget to reuse), ½ empty water bottles (that will most likely need a spritz of heavy duty cleaner to rid them of mildew smell) and enough soccer balls, volleyballs and basketballs for an afternoon scrimmage of some sort.
Pre-Kids: 2 door coupe, because, why not?
Post-Kids: Something I can barely park, because… I don’t have a choice unless I somehow learn to enjoy Whine-Fest 2018 featuring “Sheeeee’s Touching Meeeeeeeee!”
NOTE: At one point, the words "Whine Fest" had a totally different meaning too, and would have meant "Cheers" all around with a perfect pairing of rose, pinot grigio and perhaps a Bordeaux with a delicious assortment of cheeses, fruit and toasted rounds. But... back to the topic at hand.
To make things a little more manageable for you, take a look at how I’m organizing my car AND keeping it organized. These are things you can do RIGHT now and are as simple as deciding what to put and where. Even better… these ideas are all low cost, so you don’t have to worry about the impact on your wallet.
