The summer holidays are just around the corner now which means you’re about the have the kids in the car a lot more than usual. Whether you’re planning a UK holiday, plenty of day trips or just bringing the kids along for your daily errands, they’re likely to spend a fair portion of their time in the car over the next few weeks, so you’re going to want to keep things organised.
We’re going to be giving you a helping hand in keeping your car tidy by sharing with you some top organisation tips, including some of our new car organisers, that will help keep your car clean and tidy throughout the summer break.
Car Boot Organiser
If you’ve got kids then you’ll know that the boot of your car can easily become a bottomless pit for pretty much everything and anything. Toys, clothes, shoes, everything gets thrown in the boot and eventually, you’ve got no room for what you actually need to store in the boot.
Using a car boot organiser is the ideal way to keep things tidy, ensure you’ve got all the essentials you need in one place and thanks to the carefully thought out size and shape of the new HandiWorld car boot organiser, you can easily fit prams, scooters or bikes in the boot alongside it.
Split into sections to help keep things organised, you’ll be able to find everything you need in the car quickly and easily, stopping any potential dramas when you’re on the go!
Invest in a Car Bin
Whether you buy a specialist car bin, a cheap bin from the local shop or just make a DIY one with things you have at home, having a designated place for rubbish is one of our ultimate hacks for keeping the car clean and tidy.
You can’t be mad with your kids for leaving rubbish lying around the car if there’s nowhere else for it to be put but if you’ve got a car bin, you can help your kids learn the importance of tidying up after themselves and keeping things tidy!
Back Seat Organisers
Kids seem to want and need everything in the back of the car and then it’s you that has to try and keep all that stuff tidy but with the help of one of our new back seat organisers, you can have a place for everything in the car.
Designed to hang over the back of the front seats, our organisers have various sized compartments and pockets for things such as pens, books, small toys and snacks which will help you ensure you’ve got everything on board before you head off and keep things in one place when you’re out and about.
Organise Your Glove Box with Wash Bags
The glove box is another area of the car that seems to become a dumping ground for bits and bobs you want to keep in the car but don’t have a place for, oh and old parking tickets, sweet wrappers, etc.
The glove box gets easily disorganised but is actually a valuable storage space in the car for on the go essentials you want to keep on hand at all times, so keep it organised with the help of wash bags.
If you want to keep some medical supplies, personal hygiene essentials or even some snacks, you can split everything into wash bags to keep them together and easy to find in your glove box when you need them.
A Place for Parking Tickets
When you think of your car and what’s making it look a bit messy, the first thing we imagine will come to mind is all the parking tickets on the floor and in your door pockets, so having a designated place for these will help instantly keep your car tidy.
Some people need to keep their parking tickets for financial reasons, some of us just need to bin them but whether you keep or throw them, having a small sandwich bag in your driver’s door pocket can become a parking ticket bin.
Simply pop every parking ticket in the bag once you’re done with it and either take them in the house with you when you need them or when the bag gets full, bin the tickets and put the bag back in your car. If you’re heading on a UK holiday or lots of trips, there’ll be lots of parking tickets, so keeping these tidy is a good first step to keeping your car looking tidy and organised!
If you’re desperate to get the mess in your car under control or you’re dreading the state your car will become over the summer holidays, we hope these car organisation tips and hacks will help you out!
