Friday Favorites: Car Organization
Happy Friday friends! I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far! We are heading out of town this coming week and I am so excited to see friends and get out of this hundred degree weather! We are going on a 10 hour road trip and that had me thinking about what I always have to have in my car! For this Friday favorites I am sharing my favorite car products! These 5 things are all lifesavers and I make sure they are all in my car before going anywhere! My favorite part of these 5 products is that they can all be found for under $18!
I love having an air freshener in my car but I hate that I spend $5 on an air freshener and then it barely lasts a week. I am a big fan of essential oils and once I found this essential oil air freshener I was so excited! I keep grapefruit oil in my car (PURE from Melaleuca) and probably put a few drops in it every few days! It comes with 10 different felt pads so you can replace it and use a new essential oil whenever you want!
Our car doesn't have any entertainment system but we often are traveling or going on long road trips so this iPad holder comes in handy all the time! It is so easy to put the iPad up and take it down when we get to our destination, without having to take off the holder itself! It has made road trips a breeze!
We love our dog, but for some reason every time I get dressed (especially in black jeans) he turns into a cat and has to rub his body all over my legs. No matter how many times I use the lint roller in our closet, I always get into the car only to find more dog hair stragglers on my pants. Keeping a mini lint roller in the car is a lifesaver because when I get out at our destination I can get all the dog hair off my pants quick.
4. First aid kit I found this first aid kit at target and absolutely loved it! We filled ours with neosporn, band-aids, claritin, children's Tylenol, hand sanitizer, essential oils, dayquil, and advil!
This bag is the perfect addition to our car! It has 4 storage pockets and fits perfectly over the back of our 3 row seat. In the first pocket we have sunscreen/swimsuits l in case we find ourselves somewhere with a water park or splash pad. It also has an extra binky and plastic bag in case of a middle of nowhere diaper explosion. The second pocket is for Carter and Adalynn. They each usually have an extra diaper, wipes, and change of clothes. The third pocket is where we keep the first aid kit and usually an extra shirt for both Matt & I. The fourth pocket holds a towel in case we ended up at a splash pad.
Bonus product: Emergency Escape Tool
I'm sharing this one with you also because I think everyone should keep one in their car! On one end of this tool you can break a window and the other end cuts a seat belt. If you are ever in a car accident or emergency and need to get out of either of those things, this tool fits in the center console and you can access it easily. It is only $10 and you get two, totally worth the peace in mind especially when I am driving my little ones.
