DO YOU HAVE JUNK IN YOUR TRUNK
Junk in your Trunk What is in you car right now? I have various scraps of paper from one of my kid's art project; a roll of fabric from a design project; a loose car jack from a flat tire; pens, crayons, markers and some dog hair. I hate having a dirty and cluttered car. I think I am the only one who feels this way in my family. One thing I can tell you that by this afternoon all those things will be taken care of. One $6.00 visit to the carwash with the free vacuum 20 minutes later I'm golden. We all have to carry things around in our car for all reasons. Such as safety items, kids entertainment and personal. There is nothing wrong with having these things at hand because we need them especially if you spend as much time in your car as I do. The key is to containerize. It doesn't have to be complicated; there are all kinds of collapsible containers made for trunks and behind seats. Look for them on line or in the auto isle of your favorite store. I love the cubed fabric but sturdy containers that come in all sorts of fun colors. They fit perfectly in my trunk and hold things such as; emergency items; sports equipment; and kids items. Use them for whatever you tend to collect in your car. I must point out that your car is like the basement or attic. It needs to be cleaned out often. I have a carwash that I drive by every day. I make a point to stop in there at least once a week. This way I can see all the collection of trash that has collected in the back seat from my kids. It keeps it all in check and prevents the junk in my trunk from getting out of hand
