10 Minute Tidy Tip 87: The Front Seat

by shannon on September 2, 2013

The website, organizeyourride.com, offers a variety of products that can be used to store items in the front seat so that your supplies don’t fall out or spill over if you are on windy roads or need to come to a sudden stop. One product they have is the car seat organizer that swings around to the back of the passenger seat so that it can easily be moved if you have someone in the passenger seat. This also swings toward you so that while driving or stopped, you can easily reach your most important items stored in all the compartments. For less than $20 you can have an organized front seat office area that has convenient pockets that easily hold your cell phone, pens and paper, DVDs/CDs, glasses, and mail.

I was also impressed by the vehicle workspace options offered by Go Office Solutions. Check out what they have to transform your vehicle into an organized and efficient mobile office: goofficesolutions.com.

I know that when I am traveling a lot, my car tends to become a crazy, jumbled mess. Before losing all sense of order, take 10 minutes to clean out your car. What things do you need inside of your car? Examples of things you might need in your car include a First Aid kit, registration, and insurance card. Be sure to put these in a convenient place like the glove box so that you can access them quickly when you need them.

Now for the cleaning out process. What’s not needed? Use the following 3-Bag technique to breeze through each area of your car. The first bag is for stuff that doesn’t belong in your car. In this bag, collect the mugs, books, supplies, and other things that don’t belong there. The second is for things to give away/ return. Perhaps you want to give away some of the extra clothes stashed in your car. In a regular organization job, the third bag is for storage items. But for your car, use it for trash and recycling. The next time you are waiting for your gas tank to fill, repeat this car clearing exercise and empty the trash and recycling bags.
