When it comes to keeping your life organized, sometimes it’s all you can do to know which day of the week it is! Getting dressed and off to work or school can be a chore in and of itself. So how are we expected to keep our car organized, too?

We’ve all had those moments when we zip through a fast-food restaurant to grab a quick bite. What happens to the trash when you’re done eating? Or perhaps it’s your turn to order Sonic drinks for the office and with a turn of the wheel, they take a tumble into the floor. Riase your hand if this is you!

Have no fear Discount Auto Glass is here! Our team put together a list of quick, clever hacks to keep your car organized. Check out our list, comment and share any other tips you might have that we’ve forgotten.

car-drink-holder1. DIY multi-drink holder: This creation can be constructed with items you most likely have hanging out around your house. Grab a laundry basket and a muffin pan. Put the muffin pan into the bottom of the laundry basket, and you’ve got a perfect drink holder for that office Sonic Happy Hour run, without the fear of dropping all of the drinks in the car or parking lot.

muffin cup holder2. Reusable muffin cups to keep cup holders clean: We’ve all had that one fast food cup that we kept in our car too long and, ultimately, it started to seep into the cup holder. Car cup holders seem to attract the grossest gunk. This hack only requires a quick trip to a superstore to grab a set of reusable silicone muffin cups. Next step – just place them into your car’s cup holders and voila! Not only are cup holders easier to clean now, they’re a little cuter, too!

plastic container trash can3. DIY car trashcan: Plastic cereal containers are a little more multi-functional than you think. Pick up a cereal container and line it with a grocery bag or small trash bag. Place in the front seat for an easily accessible trashcan for you when you’re on the go. The lid will keep the trash from spilling out onto the floor.

shoe organizer for the car4. Use a shoe organizer as a kids’ car toy box: Shoe organizers can hold a lot more than shoes. If you place a shoe organizer on the back of the driver and/or passenger seat, your kids can find their favorite toys for the car right in front of them. This way, all of the items have a place (which isn’t on the floorboard of the car) and are kept out of the way when you’re entering or exiting your car.

 car organizer for papers5. Organize your glove box: Those recipe card-holders or multi tab folders aren’t just for the house or for your office. Grab a tabbed organizer and get that pile of papers in your glove box organized. That way, in case of an emergency or if you’re pulled over, everything is in one place and easily found.

We hope that this list will help get your car a little more organized and make you feel a little more at ease.
