We spend a LOT of times in our cars.  We eat in them.  We haul in them.  And oh yeah...we move from one place to another in them.  So here are 3 simple tips for keeping your car more organized:
  • Grab 3 bags on your next trip out to your car: One for trash, one for items to bring back into the house, and one to leave in the car for future trash.  
  • Start at the front and work your way around dividing what you find into your trash and house bags.  
  • Leave items in the car that you actually use in the car.
And by leaving the third bag in the car for trash, you are already half way finished with your next car clean out!

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
