I spent a lot of time in a vehicle lately while we were on our road trip to Key West. Here are some of the things I had with me that made traveling so much easier, in addition to some things that caught my eye. Whether you are traveling for work, vacation, or just day-to-day travel, these products are perfect for keeping your car tidy and functional!
Tips to Help You Organize Your Car
- Unload your car when you get home. There’s nothing like getting back into your vehicle to find your cupholders are full of dirty coffee mugs, empty water bottles, etc. I always take the extra minute to grab everything that doesn’t belong in the car before heading into the house.
- Get rid of trash as soon as possible! Whether you use one of the car trash cans I talk about below or throw it into a recycling or trash bin in your garage, it’s great not to be riding around with a bag of Chic-fil-a wrappers or an empty Starbucks cup for a week.
- Give everything a place to be, so it isn’t just lying in your passenger seat or shoved in your console. Once you assign a designated spot for miscellaneous items like coins, tissues, masks, sunglasses, etc., you can stay on track by making sure everything makes it back into its place after using it.
- A handheld vacuum like this one is wonderful for quickly getting rid of the crumbs, pet hair, dirt, sand, etc., that always find their way into your floorboard!

5. Car Seat Cushion
Okay, this one isn’t organization related, but this is great to add to your seat when you’re driving a long way. If you’re a petite lady, this little boost can also help you sit a little higher to get a better view of the steering wheel.

Beauty For the Heart™– Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1-2
Truth: I have a tendency to worry and to focus on the what-ifs. I have to remind myself that Jesus doesn’t want me to worry. Do you have a tendency to worry?
When I’m worrying and fearful, I’m looking at my situation through my own eyes and not looking with eyes of faith.
When I have my eyes fixed on Jesus instead of my circumstances, I remember He is faithful. He has been faithful in my past, and He will be faithful in my future.
Is there something worrying you today? Change your focus. Look up and remember that He is faithful!
Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!
