Unclutter/Clean the Car

blue-futuristic-car-mdDeClutter the Car – When uncluttering a car, take everything out. Starting with the interior, begin on one side and work around to the other. Sort removed items into these piles: 1–keep, 2–give away, 3–doesn’t belong in the car, 4–trash. Do the same for your car’s trunk.

Pile #1: This should only contain things you need and love such as Islamic listening materials for car trips.

Pile #2: If you have things in your car that you want to give to someone else, place those items in a box and label it. Store it in the house along with the other things you have been collecting to give away as part of your Ramadhan GiveAway Project.

Pile #3: Contains any items that don’t belong such as cups, forks, spoons, clothing, toys, books, etc. Place them in a box to take inside the house.

Pile #4: This is the trash pile. Toss trash in a plastic grocery bag.

Finishing Up: Now, restock your car with items from Pile #1.

Organize the Car Glove
Store everything you need for the road in a small accordion-file folder, vehicle registration and insurance information, emergency contact numbers, maps, and directions, maintenance records and some “emergency” cash.

Organizing the Trunk
Keep trunk supplies in a sturdy container or box to prevent thing from rolling around
while you drive.

Stock your trunk with paper towels, first-aid supplies, flares, duct tape, flat repair, jumper cables, extra oil, some food, water and other necessities in case you break down.
