Ever since Shaun and I moved into our new house, we have striven to keep ourselves as organized as possible. It comes pretty easily for Shaun. And we do a decent job for the girls. For me, it’s a BREEZE after my sister-in-law Mel organized me. She’s a genius. When Lori and Steve came to visit she said she’s never seen me so organized, house-wise.
Pat yourself on the back Mel.
I recently organized my car too. I do a lot of driving for work, so there always seems to be some items that end up in the front passenger seat of my car next to me. I don’t want them looking cluttered, I want them NEAT!
And between the girls’ car seats in the back, I have wet wipes, a few small toys and some books. They can’t even reach them if they’re not readily accessible.
This calls for some of my Mel-skills.
I went to Target and for $4.99 I bought two really cute patterned, semi-hardsided rectangular (about 13” x 4”) bins. Perfect!
For my front seat, I already have my Sterilite, pop-top garbage can inspired by a pin on Pinterest. Awesome. I think it’s originally meant to hold cereal, but this is an even better use if you ask me.
I put my coupons, sunglasses case, magazine, list notebook and book-on-cd in my front-seat bin. Looks great now.
For the back seat, I was able to stand up the books, snug the dolls beside them, and place both wet wipe containers into the back-seat bin between the car seats. Awesome. The girls can easily reach in there now.
I am feeling pretty darn smart – as well as clutter free when I tootle around the entire big city metro area.
