Making certain that everything has a place in your vehicle can mean the difference of whether or not you are prepared in case of an emergency, or an impromptu day at the park. Additionally, trying to corral the various things needed for summertime fun or for running to the farmers market can be a big deal. Here are a few products retailers can offer to make summer car outings more convenient and comfortable:
- Seat organizers can help corral all of the various things that migrate to unreachable spots in the auto, very inconvenient when you need to quickly access something like a tissue or umbrella. By attaching to the headrest of the seat, items can be well within reach. Some back-of-seat organizers even have integrated coolers or tablet holders, such as the iPad/Tablet Holder with car seat organizer by AutoMuko (http://automuko.myshopify.com/collections/all), and small items can be at your fingertips with the Rubbermaid Vent Catch-All (http://www.rubbermaid.com/en-US/car-organization).
- Trunk organizers, cargo blocks and cargo nets do well with keeping larger items, like sports gear, in check or holding groceries for the trip home. The High Road Cargo Net and Cool’nRide Trunk Organizer with Cooler by High Road Organizers (http://www.highroadorganizers.com/Car_Trunk_Organizer_Cargo_Organizers_s/1821.htm), CargoTech Cargo Containment System by WeatherTech (http://www.weathertech.com/cargotech/), or Jaco Superior Products Heavy Duty Trunk Organizer (https://jacosuperiorproducts.com/products/heavy-duty-car-trunk-organizer) are a few examples of the many products available.
- Visor clips for sunglasses, document organizers for manuals and insurance information, specialty extension rods for clothing transport, and headrest hooks that keep bags or umbrellas handy can also help keep things neat and tidy.
- A dedicated waste receptacle will encourage passengers to put trash where it belongs rather than let it migrate throughout the vehicle. Check out waste cans by Road Barons (http://www.roadbarons.com/products/car-garbage-bin) or HappyChappy (http://www.happychappybrands.com/product/car-trash-can/).
