No one likes riding around in a messy car, but did you know that organizing and decluttering can also improve your mental health? It’s true! Studies show that being in an organized space reduces stress, gives you more energy, and improves people’s relationships. It can even help you make healthier eating choices and workout more too!
So if you’re ready to get your vehicle tidy, here are 3 tips and tricks to organize your car:
- Use a plastic cereal container with a lid as a trashcan. The lid will help keep trash contained and avoid spills. Line the container with a grocery bag so that you can easily throw away your trash each time you get gas.
- Use an empty tissue box to store grocery bags. You never know when you might need a couple disposable bags. You can use the bags for trash, for carrying items, or you might even use them to put your muddy shoes in to protect your car mats.
- Keep your kids’ stuff organized. A dollar store hanging travel toiletry bag is a great way to do this. It can hang behind your seat to corral all of your kids’ stuff together. That way they can easily access their toys, books, or whatever else they need to stay entertained in the car, and it can all be tucked neatly away when not in use.
