Car Hacks Every Parent Needs for School Drop-Off & Beyond

Ah, the car: Part form of personal transportation, part dumping ground for the detritus that gets left behind as we travel from point A to point B. If your family car looks like something out of an archeological dig, you’re not alone. (“Ah, yes, the fossilized Cheerio, a primary source of nourishment for the American child at the dawn of the 21st century.”)

But just a few key organizational tricks can help corral the mess and create not only a clean space but one more able to serve your needs, from keeping backpacks easy to find to making the phrase “Are we there yet” extinct. (Yes, I’m talking about an iPad holder.) There are plenty of purpose-built car organizers out there, plus, when possible, easy DIYs involving things you may already have in your home.

The only problem we can’t solve yet: Traffic. But hey, at least now you’ll know where your coffee and sunglasses are when you’re stuck in it.
