It is so easy to make a mess in the car. You’re driving and eating, driving and talking, driving and dealing with a dog in the car, driving and listening to music… very rarely do we just get into the car and drive somewhere in silence without touching any other object. Thus, our car gets dirty. CD cases, pens, change, grain pellets from a drive-through wildlife safari, name tags from old jobs, magnets, newspaper, fast food bags, beverage bottles… these are all things I recently removed from my car.
Get ready for some terrifying before photos.
I started by going through everything in my car and sorting it into several categories:
- Belongs in the car
Garbage was thrown away, recyclables were put into recycling, and the “relocate” pile was taken inside for its fate to be decided. But I knew it didn’t belong in the car. My car is not a docking station for excess stuff. Things that belonged in the car were organized. Cords were kept in individual baggies so they didn’t get tangled when I needed them. CDs are in my visor CD-holder (still too many CDs, but at least they are not all over my car).
Now for the good stuff, the after photos:
If you think there is still a lot of stuff in my car, wait til you see what I took OUT of my car:
Ridiculous. Good riddance!
Is your car a clutter magnet?
