Dude – your car is a mess!

Maybe you should invest in a car organizer and increase your dateability.

For some, a car is a means of transportation. For others, a car might be a mobile office, a filing cabinet, a second closet, a cheap hotel, a gym storage locker or your own version of a trending tiny house. I carry a massage table in my car, just in case there is a need for some roadside Reiki assistance, or if a date should unexpectedly turn into a massage. I might also need a nap on a long day trip. You never know. In the modern world, a car can serve a lot of purposes, for sure. What’s the weirdest thing you keep in your car?

Whether you’re a dude or a dudette, if your car’s a mess and you find yourself constantly losing things – like your favorite CDs or your wallet – you might think about tidying things and develop some car interior maintenance habits. Here are a few car organizer products and ideas for keeping your car clean.

Auto Litterbag

Nothing’s more disturbing than unidentified white wads of tissues and napkins tucked between seats, in your door caddy, etc. This waste container attaches to your seat. If you hang it in the front, it will be right there where you need it while you’re driving.

Folders

Those stray papers scattered everywhere don’t need to be there. They look like inept confetti droppings from a fright parade. Keep a folder for all those receipts, Post-its and other bits of paper that seem to end up everywhere. You can take it in the house and empty it once a week – shred them. Get a cheap dollar store one with an elastic closure to keep your mess put.

Beer Bottle Carrier

Cans like to hang together in a six-pack format, just like your abs. Put your cans or bottles in this carrier and recycle them when they’re empty. This beer bottle carrier is also great for tailgating parties, as you can bring your beverage of choice (and maybe share). And don’t forget to dig out those ones that rolled under your seat. Ew. It will look less conspicuous without them rolling about if you get pulled over for speeding. Trust me.

Car Visor Organizer

A visor organizer is another place to put receipts – plus it can hold a parking lot card, passport, or other important papers. A built-in padded sunglasses holder ensures you won’t lose your shades. This car organizer is always near your head where you can remember it.

Car Seat Organizer

A car seat organizer holds all of your travel essentials including sunglasses, cell phones, beverages, CDs and more. It hangs over the headrest on the passenger seat and keeps everything within arm’s reach (provided you hang it in the front passenger seat). The cool part is that you can take it inside when you get home (not a purse, dudes). This one has lots of pockets and two side mesh beverage holders. If you have junior travelers, they can put their tablets and other gadgets inside and keep themselves entertained on the journey. Here’s a blue back-seat car organizer designed just for kids.

Car Trunk Organizer

If you must carry lots of stuff in your car, consider corralling it using this trunk organizer. It’s made of sturdy black denier and has two large inside pockets and exterior mesh pockets for storing bottles and other items. It measures 25 W x 13 H x 13 D inches and works equally well behind a truck seat. It’s great for tucking small grocery items too, and it stores flat for compact storage.

Handheld Car Vacuum

A car vacuum means you always have the tool to keep your carpet, mats and seats clean and when there are mishaps, you’ll have it handy for quick cleanups. This one is fairly inexpensive. Alternately, you can use the car wash ones. Probably for the price you pay for the car wash vacs, you’d pay for the handheld car vacuum in a year.


Once you have your new auto storage accessories in place, it’s time to develop some car organizing habits. Remove your paper file folder once a week and shred/sort/trash the content. The waste basket keeps trash funneled into one location that you can also empty on a weekly basis. A cigarette-lighter-powered vacuum helps keep the interior clean and, again, try to make a point to vacuum and do a quick clean on the weekends. If you develop good habits, you will feel more comfortable driving, plus you won’t freak out your dates or your mother. And if you stop using your car as a gym locker, you’ll be instantly more dateable. Promise.

Love,

Clutter Control Freak
