|Yes, there is a shopvac left in there. |
Someone attempted to vacuum and then just left it in there.
|When cleaning out the car, one thing to do every year is clean out the glove compartment.|
We don't keep much in there. As you can see after a couple of months of owning this, we have nothing in there yet.
|But (different car) if your glove compartment looks more like this.|
- Go through the papers and select only the two you need - registration and insurance
- Throw the old ones away. Can you imagine the panic that would set in, if, after an accident, you are rifling through all these papers and trying to find the right one? Yikes!
What I don't do, because usually the other one is not expired yet, is take out the old one.
At this point I should be putting a third one in, so I should take out the oldest one.
As far as the pink registration slip, I don't think it would be a problem to take out the old one, but not sure on that.
Anyway, however it works for you. Maintain! Maintain! Maintain!
Develop a new habit. Mine will be to make sure to take out the old.
|Ahhh! Nice and neat and easy to find quickly|
|The bin of supplies|
|I grabbed my supplies from all three vehicles and brought them to my counter|
|First I sorted my maps.|
The van got the road atlas and a few of the double maps and the car got all the maps of states
|My stash of meds - with a list on the bag, so I can see what I need to add.|
It's important to go through this bag at least yearly, to throw the out-dated stuff away.
|This is the bag that I found for keeping the med bag in along with other things I would like to have on hand.|
Lotion, gum, wipes, note cards, pens, etc. - Make a list that suits you.
|Here they are stored under the passenger seat in the front. |
Maps, paper towels and the bag
Another thing that I don't have here, but would be good to store in each vehicle is a spray bottle for cleaning the dash, a dust rag (I do have that) and something to help wipe fingerprints off the windows. If my cleaning equipment is stashed in the van, then I may be able to do something to clean up while I'm waiting for my kids to get out of school.
Making the most of today
