Today we are getting the car ready for fall! For me—and I’m sure for most of you—your car is like your office. There’s a lot of stuff that you need to keep in the car at all times, but trying to keep it organized is insanely difficult. My car is the one space in the house that I am so bad at cleaning and organizing. It’s always messy, I can never find anything, and sometimes my husband freaks out about the amount of trash that remains in my car! Oops!

Getting The Car Ready For Fall - Trunk Organization

Getting the Car Ready for Fall

So at the beginning of summer, I shared how I was getting the car ready for summer by creating some easy and affordable ways to spruce it up.

For summer, I used a travel hanging organizer for an “extra supply” station. Using a clip, I attached the organizer to the back of a backseat headrest (so that it’s hanging in the trunk of my car). Then, I filled the hanging organizer with extra diapers, wipes, sunscreen, tampons, contact solution, and a nail file. I also had two bags that held extra summer clothes and sand toys.

For fall, I decided to use a similar organization system, but to switch out the summer gear for fall. First, I switched out the summer clothes for fall clothes. Then, I put away the sand toys and replaced them with small fleece blankets.

Next, I got the kids’ jackets and car seat ponchos organized. I started by making sure all the jackets fit. Car seats don’t protect kiddos when they are wearing anything thicker than a sweatshirt, so this car seat poncho is the perfect option! It keeps us warm all Chicago winter long, and they don’t have to wear their poofy jackets.

Finally, I deep cleaned the car, vacuum the floors, and got it serviced. Today, spend some time cleaning up that car! It really is your second home as you transport your kiddos to and from school/activities/etc.!
