I have young kids and we spend a lot of time in our car getting from one place to another. There are snacks, coloring books and crayons, dirty feet, wipes and so much more just cluttering up my car. I have found a way to organize their activities but I had been struggling with how to corral the wipes and trash. When we eat in the car inevitably someone needs a wipe to clean up and that wipes container is usually buried in my console. Then the trash ends up on the floor. It’s a mess and I needed a simple way to clean it up! A simple hack that the kids can keep up with.
I started with 2 wipes containers, 1 for hands and another for surfaces that happened to be empty and on its way to the recycling bin. I also grabbed the following:
- Pretty paper
- Tape runner
- Plastic bag
I covered the containers using pretty coordinating paper and secured it using a tape runner. Then I labeled each container as wipes and trash. This way there is no confusion!
I want to be able to reuse the trash container so I opted to line it with a plastic bag, this way I can just pop the bag out and toss it when it’s full. To keep the container looking pretty I just trimmed the edges of the plastic bag.
I took these 2 containers and put them on the floor of my back seat to keep our mess under control, this is such a simple hack to keep your car clean. They stay put and my kids can easily grab a wipe as needed and know exactly where to stash it when they are done. Now our little bits of trash and used wipes have a home! I can just change out the trash bag when it’s full, so simple.
