Summer is a time filled with road trips, weekend camping excursions, and trips into or away from the city. For most of us, it’s also the busiest time of the year. And when life gets busy, it’s important to get organized.
Consider how much time you will spend in your vehicle this summer. Now consider if your vehicle is as organized as it should be. No matter what the answers to those questions are, here are a few helpful tips to organize your car into the perfect summer traveling machine.
For those who don’t have an infotainment system built into their vehicle, they will need a phone holder. This helps with navigation, music, and keeping both hands on the steering wheel. There are tons of great cell phone holder options available online. But if you’re looking for a DIY approach, simply wrap a rubber band around an air vent flap. Then you can pull the rubber band around your phone to hold it in place.
There are several ways you can effectively organize your trunk. But it all depends on how your trunk is used. One effective method is to section off different areas in your trunk for different purposes. Create a section for work-related materials, one for groceries, and maybe one for an emergency kit. You can achieve this by something as simple as adding and securing plastic boxes to your trunk. If that doesn’t work for you consider plastic drawers or shelves. Only you know what fits your lifestyle, so try creating a custom trunk to keep you organized during summer.
