Organization Tip of the Week

As a busy mom, occasionally we have to swing through a drive-through for a quick meal in appointments and evening activities. Eating in the car can be hard for kids to manage a drink, sandwich, and fries without making the backseat a total mess.I keep a couple of shoe boxes in the backseat for this purpose. They can lay a napkin on the bottom and it holds their food nicely in their own little tray. Spills of ketchup or crumbs remain in the box--not on my seats. I use plastic shoe boxes that I purchased specifically for this purpose. It is nice, since it can be easily wiped out when you are finished and reused.

I've also learned that those little boxes can be great for safe-keeping library audio books that tend to slide under the seat, and you forget about them! :-)

Sarah, you are too kind.

I'm glad, ladies, you like the idea.

Yes, Mimi, shoeboxes come in handy for so many organizational tasks.
