There may be a method to your madness. And you may be able to find the latest Disney Princess CD in an instant when asked (even though its buried under two overdue library books, a school bag, and a Horizon chocolate milk from last week). But in this day and age of organizers for everything, why not get your car organized! Here are our favorites!
For the Pack Rat: The Kid Car Organizer
This is like a little mini pantry, closet, library and filing cabinet – for toddlers – all in one. Lest you doubt that you need it, I suggest you look in your backseat. This is a brilliant solution, especially for long car rides. There is plenty of space for books, games, stuffed animals, food, etc. Come with adjustable dividers, external pockets and a sturdy top that can double as a desk-top or food tray. Made of durable cloth for easy cleaning. Comes in two sizes, and red or blue. Be sure to follow our link because we’ve seen this small size available online for as high as $35, but here for only $27.
For the Crowded Car: The Car Organizer
This handy contraption snaps on to the back of the drivers or front passenger seat. It contains eight pockets for tissues, CDs, dvd and cd player, candy, juice boxes and toys. This one won’t take up valuable back seat space for the kids and their friends but will still help keep the kiddo stuff organized. Only $15 at alwaysbrilliant.com.
Don’t be a Litterbug! The Car Trash Stand
Teach your kids this lifelong lesson early on. You can’t throw trash out the window and you can’t toss on the car floor either! Keep this handy trash stand on the backseat floor to collect the plentiful toddler detritus. It’s leak-proof so you can even put drinks in it and it stands steady thanks to Velcro floor grips. $15.
For The Minimalist Mini Traveler: The Side Rider 2 Pack
Not all car rides require that you move the playroom into the car. So for those short and manageable rides, these car seat side pockets are great. They hold just enough to keep your toddler occupied while accompanying your pre-schooler to school drop off. Each pouch holds up to five pounds. $13 for a set of two.
At Your Finger Tips: The Snack and Play Travel Tray
This handy strap on travel tray helps keep little hands busy so there’s no hitting or throwing going on in the back seat … hopefully. Its been crash tested by a national safety board and is 100 percent nylon so it’s a snap to clean. Only $21 at familytravelgear.com.
