Spring Organizing Project #3: Clear the Car Clutter

April is car care month, and the right time to give your car a little TLC. Spend 15 minutes de-cluttering your car after the long winter.

  • Take a garbage bag out to your car and clean out any trash.
  • See what you’ve stashed in the trunk and back seat that really belongs elsewhere…or can be tossed/recycled.
  • Clean out the glove box. All you really need to keep in the glove box is the car registration, a small first aid kit, flashlight, the few maps you’ll use the most, and an extra car charger for your cell phone.
  • If you are feeling really industrious, vacuum out your car and then wash the outside - or take a quick trip to the local car wash.

That’s Neat! Organizing was interviewed for a Boston Globe article on car organization!
