Today is Works-For-Me Wednesday: The Car Edition, a chance for everyone to share ideas on how to make life-on-the-go a little easier. I hope y’all have a slew of clever tips ready, because this is one area of my life where I’m sadly at a loss. The floor of my car generally looks like an explosion at a french fry factory.
There are, however, a few tricks I’ve discovered over the years (all of which I think I’ve shared in previous WFMWs, but here we go again):
- I keep a bottle of Febreeze in the car, to squirt down the carpets
to cover the stench of rotting apple juicefor a quick refresher.
- I keep an "emergency box" in the back, with a couple of bottles of water, a couple of juice boxes, a few packages of crackers, bug spray, sunscreen, diapers, and Scotch tape. Yes, Scotch tape. Never underestimate the importance of having access to Scotch tape at any given moment.
Anytime I print out a Google map for a soccer camp or birthday party or dentist, etc., I slip it in a folder in my glove compartment for future reference. I affectionately call this my "Poor Man’s OnStar".
Aaaand…that’s it. I’m ready to be wowed by your automobile cleverness. Have you found a smart way to stock an auto first-aid kit? Know some easy games to entertain the kids in the car? Stumbled across a brilliant way to end backseat bickering? Please, share the links to your tips below. (WFMW guidelines can be found here.) Thanks, as always, for playing!
