So my morning project, since the car is at the dealer getting fixed (yay!) was to organize the hell out of the car. Using a variety of plastic totes that I found in the garage, I managed to create order out of chaos. Behold!
Please allow me to escort you on a tour of my newly organized car!
First, we have the Trunk Bucket:
Contained within the Trunk Bucket are things that I won't need to access often, like the fire extinguisher (God willing!), the umbrella, MG's portable high chair (LOVE this!), a roll of paper towel and some multipurpose spray cleaner, and some bungee cords. Why, you ask? Because you just never know!
Next, we have the Entertainment Bucket:
In the Entertainment Bucket you will find books, crayons, paper, a couple of "guys," and a couple of toys. The crayons and paper are neatly stored in their own ziplock bag, because I rock.
Finally, we have the Refill the Diaper Bag Bucket:
which contains extra diapers and wipes, non-perishable food, extra outfits (in the big striped make up bag), various medicines (in the small striped bag), and a bunch of miscellaneous other stuff in the ziplock bag (Tide pens, nail files, etc.). This way, I can just carry a small, light tote around with me when we go inside places, instead of having to carry around half a ton of baby gear we never use.
In the diaper bag, I have two diapers for each kid and wipes, a tiny first aid kit, my wallet and stuff, a sling, and not much else.
This new height of organization will last for approximately eleven seconds, or until MG discovers the pile o' stuff - whichever comes first.
