You haven'??t seen the inside of my car. Who are we kidding? I haven'??t seen it either ever since our daughter was born. It's just a pile of junk. First it was chock full of wipes, extra diapers, sunscreen tubes for impromptu park stops and old cranberries. Then we graduated to extra pairs of underwear (gotta be prepared for the first few months of '??potty trained'? accidents), empty Trader Joe'??s AppleSauce crushers, her portable Etch-a-Sketch and old cranberries. Now it'??s coloring books, crayons, extra socks (she enjoys the occasional puddle splash in her sneakers) and'?¦you guessed it old cranberries.
Although I would prefer to not keep the old cranberries, I'??ve found a way to keep all the other necessary junk in our car organized. The sugarSNAP Car-Go. This is a home base case for a busy family. The set includes a bin plus six file bags that are cleverly marked with the Toys + Trinkets, Snacks + Supplies, Lotions + Potions, Dipes + Wipes, Shirts + Socks, and one empty one waiting for you to grab a marker and indulge in your own content specification. These are zippered, so what'??s in there stays in there.
Our files now contain books, daily snacks for on-the-go munching, bug spray and sunscreen (since the files can be taken out, we keep this one by the front door because subjecting that stuff to the summer heat decreases its potency), paper towels, extra pairs of socks, a first aid kit, and our dogs'?? hiking water bottle.
We'??re ready for everything, but you wouldn'??t know it because it'??s all kept quietly in a lovely and chic pink and black bin. It's very sturdy so bring it on, all you Costco trips and stroller-lugging excursions that might bump against it. It also has outside mesh pockets for easy access to some items. When we go on our six-hour drive to Cape May this week (God help us), we'??ll put my iPad in there in case she needs an episode of the WonderPets...stat.
Car-Go bins come in two vibrant color schemes. The Parker is a green-on-green pattern with orange trim and coordinating green files and the uber-chic Wyatt is a boastful black and white pattern with fuchsia trim with coordinating black and white files.
So snap to it, sugar. Organize your stuff.
The sugarSNAP Car-Go is available at heysugarsnap.com for $59 (and is worth every penny, I might add).
