Car Organization



Keep it minimalistic, with the mindset, "less is better". Obviously, the more junk you have the harder it is to maintain a neat area. 

Let's start with the center console...this solution will vary depending on the size of your center console, but you get the idea. I measured my area and found that two mason jars could fit perfectly at the bottom. The two mason jars hold my antibacterial and bath and body works car fresheners. I like to keep a pair of driving gloves here during the winter time and a change purse for late night Taco Bell runs...and meters. I needed flat storage to sit on top of the mason jars to maximize space which is where this photo container (here) came in handy. I keep lipgloss, lotion, anti-bacterial, lipstick and pepper spray. Pepper spray is a must ladies. 


In my glove compartment, I keep my diy car binder, diy receipt file system, a pouch full of napkins and my registration. Here's how to create my diy car binder and diy receipt file system. 

DIY Car Binder:
-Car information (year, make, model, vin, dealership info and numbers)
-Emergency Information (emergency contacts, allergies, etc.) 
-Car Trouble (how to change a tire, jump your car, put air in your tires, etc)
-Car Maintenance (section to keep track of any work done to your car)
-Notes (any other information)
-Pocket (insurance card, title, registration) 

DIY Car Receipt Binder:
-Gas
-Oil Change 
-Car Wash 
-Supplies 
-Maintenance 
-Other



The backseat houses an umbrella (similar here) and car trash can (here). The pet hammock is from Amazon (here) for $20...best purchase ever. Its easy to pop in and out and easy to wipe down. 



There are so many options for trunk organizers, but I love these from Thirty One (here). The inserts are removable if you need more space and are easy to clean. I keep a first aid kit, car emergency kit, extra car air freshener vents, microfiber towels, leather cleaning wipes, interior car wipes and more antibacterial wipes. The smaller organizer is from Target (here) which is great for organizing your reusable shopping bags. I also keep a bed sheet at the bottom of this organizer for impromptu picnics. 


What you need in your car first aid kit:
-assortment of bandages
-gauze
-safety pins
-adhesive tape
-antiseptic creams
-insect sting relief pads
-cotton balls
-vaseline
-advil
-tweezers
-a needle 
-saline solution
-hot/cold packs
-disposable gloves
-disposable masks
-Peroxide

What you need in your car and emergency kit: 
-Emergency Blanket
-Flashlight
-Water Bottles
-Non-perishable snacks
-Scissors 
-Duct Tape 
-Plastic Bags
-Hand warmers 
-Double and Triple Batteries 
-Jumper Cables 
-Swiss Army Knife
-Safety Flares 

Side note: I have a keychain in my purse where I keep this all-in-one tool that cuts your seat belt and breaks your window. A friend of ours turned me onto this after it saved her life during a freak flood. Buy it (here). 


Lastly, one tiny bulldog sticker from the company Smoosh Face United on etsy (here).

  14. Different variables deserving of thought are the additional choices you may need the vehicle to have, for example, a ski rack or a GPS framework. Additional choices and necessities may cost you more. It generally serves to initially decide the kind of vehicle that suits your needs and taste before attempting to get a decent vehicle bargain.
