Around a month ago, my hubby and I bought a new car!
We say that to be fair.
Technically, I’m the one driving the car, and I’m the one who traded my other car in for the new one…so it’s pretty much MY car. However, he has a car, and this new one is technically an SUV, so we say that now we have a car and an SUV. And whoever needs to drive what depends on their day…but mostly I drive the SUV.
The above is my rationalization to him for the organizing of the compartments in the SUV that I did. He didn’t quite see the need for it…especially in the containers that I chose, but, as usual, he will eventually come around to my color-coded reasoning.
The size of the SUV is much different than the size of my former car. I went from this…
And THIS is my husband, playing with the removable antenna while we waited on the car salesman:
Can you tell who he’s trying to imitate? (Can I just say how funny he is?! And how much I’m gonna be in TROUBLE for this picture…)
Anyways, back to the new car. Tons more space, and while I enjoy more space as much as the next person, it can be an illusion. You think you have more space, so you fill it with JUNK! Nope, not happening in this car. Allow me to explain…
It just so happens to be “back-to-school” season! And there is something very awesome for car organization that can be found almost anywhere right now:
Pencil cases! Aren’t these cute?!
And they have the nice connector and velcro, too! Great for organizing! I took mine apart because I had this to deal with:
Already a mess! A little bit of sorting and I ended up with this:
I placed the tissues and the car manual/docs in the glove box…
…and had plenty of space left in the center console for everything else.
(If you lift off the removable pieces, there’s even more room!)
So I had plenty of space on the bottom level…
…and on the top!
So head out and get yourself some pencil cases! (I promise, they are in all the stores in abundance!) Great for organizing more than school supplies!
What would YOU use pencil cases to organize? How do you organize YOUR car?
