With summer upon us, kids out of school, fairs, festivals and concerts galore, mind blowing movies, and other summer activities in full swing we can all expect to be busy the next few months. Being on the go can also mean more time behind the wheel.
Organizing your car to suit your summer needs can come in pretty clutch. Otherwise we’re always realizing what we’ve forgotten as we arrive at our destination. I’ve definitely had my moments where I realize I’m covered in dog hair or have wolverine eyebrows and don’t have time to turn around or run back in the house to grab tweezers or a lent brush (These are obviously 2 items that I now keep on deck in the glove box). Remember to think of others also and consider the needs of friends and family you most often drive around. For example, I keep treats and water for my dogs handy in my trunk caddy.
Swipe the pics below for a few tips on keeping it clutch in your car:
