Shoe bag organizers will organize a multitude of miscellaneous junk you keep in your car. From umbrellas to baby and car wipes, to toys, the show bag organizer will keep it under control. It also makes the kids’ items easier cleanup.  That utility is what makes this one of my favorite car hacks.

I like car hacks like this one because loose change in the car can get pretty gross, or just disappear. Whether you need change for a parking meter or a soda, instead of scrounging around the car for the much-needed change, keep it organized and save the environment at the same time by reusing an empty gum container.

Keep important car books, papers, and receipts pertaining to the car organized in a binder so they don't get lost.  If you store it under the passenger's seat then you will prevent unwanted objects from rolling into that space. It's kind of like two car hacks in one! For such a binder keep these documents accessible:


  • Repairs (Maintenance log, Mechanic numbers, etc)
  • Mileage log (because you might use it someday)
  • car related login info
  • Emergency (Phone numbers of relatives, etc)
  • Insurance/Registration papers
