Like most moms, I am in my car more than my home some days so it is important to pack it fully, in an organized manner, of the the things I need for the multitude of situations that could come my way in any given day. Today I thought I would share my tips, tricks and MUST haves that I keep in my car with all of you! Let’s get started!

First, there are some essentials I always grab extras of when I am at Target. I love the travel size for some things like deodorant and antibacterial wipes, but I love to go BIG when it comes to things I use frequently like gum. That is why I was thrilled when I found these new 35-stick Extra® Gum packages in both Spearmint and Polar Ice® on the checkout line at Target, the two best flavors if you ask me. They are big enough to last me a while, but I am also eager to share with friends in the car because there is plenty to go around! I also love the durable recycled packaging that is sure to last in even the must brutal purse environment! You can even save 10% during February on New Extra® 35-stick pack with the Cartwheel app, I don’t really think I can make this deal any sweeter!

Once I have picked everything up, it is time to get organized in the car. I put things I use all the time in the center console like my Extra® Gum 35-Stick packs and things that I don’t use as often in my door like my foaming hand sanitizer and perfume. I give you a quick little tour in the video below.

I love to put disposable cupcake liners in my cup holders because I never have to worry about cleaning them, I can just pull the top one and toss it in the trash!

I also add dish drying mats instead of floor mats in my back seat because they are much cuter and more affordable!

In the back of the car, non stick shelf liner helps to keep things stationary while the car is moving and hanging organizers are great for things like umbrellas, especially when they are wet!

I also have a huge tackle box in the back that holds even more essentials, and of course, more 35-Stick packs of Extra Gum!
