Okay, I'm rather embarrassed to post what I'm tackling today...it's really bad....it has never looked this bad...I really can't show these pictures....oh well...here is the embarrassing picture of...my car looks like a bomb has gone off in it and this is what I'm tackling today...it is also on my January To-Do List so I get to remove an item after I get it completed! Yeah for me!...yes this is the car from the "Works for Me" Blogger that has the glove compartment organizer....
Backpacks that need to go into the house...newspapers that need to be recyled...
Pretty bad huh?
- Remove trash-take trash bag to car.
- Remove all clothes & shoes, take to laundry or to owners room. (major improvement by just doing steps 1 & 2!)
- Vacuum with shop vac...floors and seats.
- Wipe down dashboard and seats with Armour All wipes for vinyl & leather.
- Take to get washed!
Here is the final project all completed:
Now doesn't that look much better! It's feels much better! I just love Tackle it Tuesdays!
Organizing Tips for Car:
In addition to cleaning out the car, I reorganized/cleaned out the baskets in my car. I have 3 baskets-1. Has CDs, DVDs, extra deoderant, sunscreen, hand lotion, my husband's "do you have it"kit (which has chapstick, advil, rolaids, fingernail clippers), scizzors, etc., little trash bags and snacks like cereal bars 2. Has cordless headphones for the entertainment system for the car & remote control and 3. has video games that don't require an electrical outlet for the DVD system (they run on batteries and just hook into the DVD source in the back). I also have a rubbermaid box in the back of my car that houses paper plates, a roll of paper towels, first aid kit, car emergency kit, & plastic forks/spoons/knives. I have all of these things stored in my car because as a traveling soccer/dance/baton family we will stop at the grocery store instead of going to a fast food restaurant and get items for sandwiches and it saves me from having to buy these items everytime. It has come in handy many, many times. During the winter month I have an extra box with blankets in it for soccer games as well as our portable chairs.
