After traveling all across the United States — driving specifically — I’ve learned a thing or two about how to turn my humble car into a comfortable home. And today, I’m going to be sharing with you just how I’ve done it.
I hope my little car tour was both entertaining and informative. And I hope I was able to convey both the importance of keeping your vehicle organized while on the road and how difficult that can actually be in practice. If you need a little bit of a refresher guide on how to make the most of the space in your car, I’ve included a quick little break down of what I keep in each section of mine down below.
Driver’s Seat Area — Hand sanitizer. Perfume. Lotion. Sunglasses. I also have a couple of pens and pieces of paper center front. Most importantly, I have my phone charger which not only charges my phone, but connects it to my Apple CarPlay — one of the best features of this car, honestly.
Passenger Seat Area — Backpack — full of all the important essentials like my laptop and spare clothes. I also keep my bag with cards and cash in it here. Books and souvenirs round out this area.
Backseat Area — Cooler. Camp stove. Pots, pans, plates and so much other kitchen stuff I won’t bore you with. Oh and snacks. Windshield shade. Window shades. Shoes. Pillows and blankets for sleeping. And trash bags.
Trunk — Oh where to start… In addition to a suitcase and any other bigger bags I may have, I also keep a large plastic tub full of “back up” essential items — things like extra trash bags, extra toiletries and niche items like lighters and clothing accessories. Camping gear is unique to traveling as well. My umbrella that I also keep back here is not — but still worth mentioning!
