Tips to Keep Your Car Organized - if you have little kids, you know how messy they can be! Here are some tips to help. #WalmartAuto

Before having kids I had no clue that car care would completely change once the little ones arrived. Now that my kids are older I’ve started to realize why cars are now coming out with vacuums built into them. OMG these guys are messy!

Luckily there are some great solutions to keep your car organized and make sure that the “stuff” that kids bring in either find a home or find their way back out of the car.

I’ve come up with a few tips to make sure this happens in our family car. And I’ve made sure that the kids are involved every step of the way. I mean it is mostly their mess we’re organizing so it’s only fair!

Finding A Place for Trash

By keeping a trash bin in the car we’ve been able to eliminate the paper and food trash that we used to have in the car. Since this mess usually ended up in the middle of the two carseats, we’ve put the trash bin right in the middle for easy access.

Cleaning Up The Clutter

The most clutter that comes into the car are the kids toys, jackets, and random paperwork that floats to the back seat. So we’ve now made a rule that every time the kids leave the car they have to grab two items to take inside with them and put away.

If it’s something they desperately want to keep in the car then they need to have a spot for it to stay but it cannot be on the floor of the car.

Finding A Home for Necessities

To make sure there’s a spot for the things the kids want to hold onto (like toys, pads of paper and pens, etc) the Rubbermaid Backseat Mobile Organizer helps keep these items off the floor and in their own spot.

Clean up is a breeze when everyone knows where their things belong. You can find these fabulous car organization products and more, at a Walmart near you or online at

How do you keep your car clean and organized with kids?

  1. The further back you go in my car, the messier it gets. I need to get the kids more involved in keeping their stuff organized & neat.

  2. My husband cleans house. Seriously. He doesn’t understand how it gets so consumed with crap and he’ll just take it all out and either throw away or puts in a bag on a shelf in the garage. And then it’s clean. And then I don’t have an extra sweater when I’m cold, or tissues for a runny nose. :/

  3. That looks like my car. I have to clean it out once a week, at least.

  4. This looks like an awesome product. We love Rubbermaid products. I NEED this for my car!

  5. Usually I keep a bin at the back of the van for the kids toys and stuff so after a trip i play basketball when cleaning up and pretend I am jordan shooting their things in the bin XD
