Have I mentioned this before?
We drive a 2007 Honda CRV and it's the best car I've ever owned. The back seats recline comfortably for passengers and car seats, there is ample storage in the cargo area, and it handles like a dream. The convenience of driving a car, but bigger and a tad more functional.
I really do love it.
So, one has to wonder, then, how something I so absolutely love can end up so filthy by the end of the week. By Friday, the leather seats are streaked with milk. The fuzzy floor panels are embedded with dirt and crumbs and the cupholders are jammed full of cups or receipts. The area in front of Cub's car seat is typically packed with superfluous diaper bags, overnight bags, toys, and a random assortment of books.
It's safe to say that we kind of live in our car during the week.
I've tried coming up with creative ways to keep it clean, or to make one day a week "Clean The Car Day!" Unfortunately, none of these things have worked. This week I've simply tried to remember to empty it out every day at the end of the day, to avoid a headache by Friday. It's worked thusly, but I know that all it will take is a moment of absent-mindedness and the mess will resume. Curses!
So. Does anyone else have this issue?? Any tips for a mom who is about to double her cargo load?? :)
Have a lovely day!
