After just getting back from a long road trip vacation, I picked up a few tips along the way to keep my van organized and clean (mostly!) with three kids in tow. With a little planning, you can have a system that works for the whole family and keep your sanity! Check out these 4 Tips for Keeping Your Family Vehicle Clean and Organized to help you out!
1. Bins. I like to use bins for snacks, activities and toys. Using small cube-type bins instead of bags, keeps things easy to find and right at hand! I like the $6 fabric cube bins from Target that come in different colors! Try giving each child a color and adding all of their books, toys and snacks to it to keep handy during the trip.
2. Scent. Being in the car for a long time with a lot of people can get a little stinky. Keep the air fresh and clean with an auto air freshener such as PERK. PERK auto air fresheners deliver exceptional fragrances through cutting-edge design and technology that will wake up your space! Perk grips onto your visor and delivers consistent, high-quality fragrance. The cool gray color and slim profile make Visor Wrap very discreet while offering up to 30 days of fabulous fragrance.
3. Trash Bags. I give each child a trash bag to stash beside their seat. This way they don’t have an excuse for not throwing away their gum wrappers, snack bags and other trash they come up with! When we stop at a rest area or gas station, I gather the bags and empty them. Easy! Keeps the car free of trash and mom happy!
4. Organizers. I love over the chair organizers! You can find these useful organizers that have several pockets in them that are perfect for electronics, books, crayons and more! I use one for each child so that they can keep their items organized and right where they can find them in a jiffy! CONTEST!!! Have a trip coming up? You need to try PERK to keep things smelling fresh and clean!
