4 weeks to a more organized home: Assignment #6

Today’s assignment for Money Saving Mom’s 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home was to clean out and vacuum your car….and boy, was my car in dire need of it!

Our car is less than a year old, and when we bought it, I told the family that there would be no eating or drinking in it whatsoever!  It had been 10 years since we bought our last car and it would probably be 10 or more years until we buy another one, so I wanted to prevent any stains or spills on the upholstery.

As you can see, that statement has long been forgotten.  I do sometimes let my little ones eat crackers and drink water in the backseat, but I draw the line at juice, milk, or anything chocolately 😉


How could I have accumulated all this junk in such little time?  Christmas candy in the center console…really?

blankAhhh….so much better.  Since I already had the vacuum out, I decided to go one step further and wash the car and wipe down the dashboard and center console with Armor All.

It looks so nice and it actually feels good to ride in a nice clean car…with no green pollen all over the outside of it!  My car thanks you Money Saving Mom!  Can’t wait for tomorrow’s project 🙂

    I was going to do this today also but then I remembered my husband too our van and the jeep was already clean so I am hoping to do task for tomorrow. It is amazing how quickly a car can get dirty and how much stuff can accumulate in the car.

      I wished I had started last week with the organization series! It’s great to get all that stuff done that you need to do, but don’t take the time to actually get done 🙂

    So glad you are enjoying your clean car! We just bought a new car at the end of 2011, and I’m pretty sure my husband told everyone – more than once – that eating wouldn’t be allowed in the car……let’s just say that kind of went out the window. 🙂
