#3 Shoe organizer for car organizer
This is one of those why did I not think of it ideas…of course because I’m not Martha Stewart. Yes, this idea of using a over the door show organizer as a backseat car organizer comes from Martha Stewart. Click here for Martha’s how-to instructions and get your kiddos organizes in the back seat for upcoming road trips or just everyday around town driving.
#4 Coffee creamer for travel snacks
Recycle your coffee creamer containers in to travel snack dispensers. Once empty you can easily remove the creamer label and place container in dishwasher to clean out – then fill with favorite snack for your next outing. My son Caleb loves his new snack holder – we used the smaller size creamer container. We found this idea here.
#5 Car trash can – Line a cereal dispenser with a small plastic garbage bag and now you have an instant car trash can.
#6 Shower travel bags – Tired of shoe dirt in your suitcase when you travel? Place your shoes into a shower cap before placing in your suitcase to keep your suitcases dirt free.
