Cars that used to be luxury items are now turning into on-the-go dens and mini-offices. Whether you play the role of mom chauffeur or work on the road, you need to implement a few tricks to keep your clutter at bay and your car organized.

Let’s face it, kids in and out, spending time in school lines and working from your car will add wear and tear on the car and also add wear and tear on you – the driver!

Sticky seats, pens without caps, stale coffee mugs and other nasty items can gross out even the most seasoned traveller. So what to do?

Follow these 4 steps to keep your ‘home on wheels’ in good condition

1. Keep your car tidy by always taking something with you when you go from your car to your home.  And ask everyone (kids, spouse) to take something, too!

2. Use storage and organizing containers on the back of your car seats and in the trunk.

3. Keep reusable bags in your car so you are ready for eco-friendly shopping at all times.

4. Keep a trash bag in the car so that trash has a place to live other than your floorboard!
