When you finally wrap up a lengthy period of time in a vehicle, the last thing you want to do is spend hours cleaning. By working to keep your space clutter-free, you will have a more comfortable adventure as well.
The following tips will help pave the way for an enjoyable drive.
Check your checklist: Have a list of everything you will need about a week before so you have time to gather these items or run out and purchase them. As you are packing the vehicle, check off these key items as you load them up. You don’t want to get down the road and realize you forgot your cash or driver’s license.
A place for everything: Organize the items you will need during the trip to be at your fingertips. You don’t want to have to dig around in the back or bed of your rental pickup to find what you are looking for. This may include having a bag of snacks, games or medicines tucked away, but within reach.
A place for garbage: If you are going to be traveling for a while, it’s more likely than not that there will be stuff to throw away. Having a small disposable bag at the ready will keep trash off of the floor and make throwing it all away even easier.
Less food mess: Try to pack up snacks that will leave behind less debris. Tons of granola bars will create lots of wrappers to deal with and chips and cookies can leave behind greasy fingers and crumbs. Be smart when you load up snacks or stop for a quick bite.
Divvy up jobs: If you are traveling with passengers, assign duties to those they fit best. Have the navigator map out the best route and have the foodie fill up the snack bags.
Wipes on hand: A package of hand wipes will ensure the kids will keep their hands clean without having to stop to use a sink and soap and water.
Use the glove compartment: It may be a place that you rarely even open in your own car, but it can be a vital catchall for your rental vehicle. This is a good place to wrap up and store cell phone chargers as well as any key paperwork or documents related to your trip.
