How to Stay Organized in the Car

Today we're taking a little trip over to Brown Paper Packages where Kierste has a post about organizing every Friday.  I'm going to show you a simple tip on how we try to stay organized in the car. 

Come see how we roll right HERE.


Thanks for dropping in.

  1. You have two adorable kids. :) Great idea to be organized in the car as well. :) The car sure gets messy when you have kids with all those toys and other stuff. :)

  2. Great idea to use an old tissue box for garbage. We have a minivan and need to figure something out that will work for us since the kids are in captain's seats...I just try not to let them have anything but 1 book each and the portable dvd player.

  3. I love that idea. Would not work in my car, I have three kids. I tried one of thos organizers for the back of the driver/passenger seats, but it did not fit the seat right and look sloppy. Any suggestions???

  5. So have they ever emptied the tissue box while you're driving? ;-)

    Seriously though, it's a great idea to use a caddy like that in the car! I'll have to give it a try. I've tried various things to coral the kids' stuff, and nothing has worked so far.

  6. Wonderful, fabulous idea- my car is always a mess - I love the idea of using an empty tissue box for the garbage. Brilliant!

  7. Great idea! I have a minivan,and usually have a small shoe box in between the seat with little things like that. For us it seems the kids always want a snack in the car. So we always have some kind of crackers/cookies,bottle of water,a wipes container,and some small toys too. The caddy is a great idea thought,because we can move it easily to the back seat if needed.
    How funny,my little guy is 21-months too! Btw,love the pic with the sunglasses,cute!

  8. I love this idea. I often feel like I need a whole dresser back there for all the things that end up strewn on the floor (especially because our daughter loves taking her socks and shoes off in transit, which means that her socks usually fall into some kind of time vortex and spontaneously reappear about six months later). I will have to do some more brainstorming, though, to find some container that will fit into our microscopic Corolla backseat.

  10. Love this idea. The kleenex box as a trash can is genius!

    Thanks for sharing. I love your blog.

  11. I'm almost embarrassed at how impressed I am at your use for tissue boxes! :)

  12. Your boys are so cute! We use one of those canvas 18 inch square boxes under the carseat for storage. I like your system!

  13. This is such a cute idea. I have three kids, too, but I'm going to give it a try since I already have a caddy. I love the tissue box garbage idea as well. The kids are always trying to hand me garbage while I'm driving so this is a great solution for that. For the past few years, I have had a tissue box in my trunk to hold supermarket plastic bags and I can't tell you how handy that has been especially when my oldest had reflux and my twins were in diapers. I always needed a plastic bag back then.

  14. when I was a kid, my mom used to use a foot-by-the-foot candy box that we'd buy from a wholesale store at Costco.

  17. Great idea. I need one for the front seat too! I do home health so I always have a ton of junk on the passenger seat!

  19. Cheri - I love your blog and all your boy things, since I have 3 boys myself.

    I'm a little concerned by the picture though - both boys are in booster seats? The general guidelines are that kids should be in a harnessed car seat (not booster seat) until at least 4 years old and 40 lbs. Most booster seats will say at least 3 years old on them as the minimum though. Just an FYI in case you didn't know.

    Keep up the awesome work - my boys appreciate the great ideas you give me!

  20. Here is a nice carseat/booster seat overview that I like to reference when I forget those tricky laws as well -

  21. Hi, really glad I found your blog (yes, have three boys too!) and LOVE your header!

    I picked up another car organisation tip since we're on it...for anyone who has kids with occasional car sickness.
    Basically it's to use one of the plastic boxes with flip top lids that you get washing capsules in (I'm presuming you have the same thing in the states?)

    It's skinny enough to fit in the pocket behind the front seat, wide enough to chuck up into and has a lid that seals it up tightly until you find a bin!

    So much better than a carrier (with a hole in!)
