Tip #19 – When getting out of the car, take everything with you.
This one is a good one for me – but not my kids. Every time I get out of my car, I empty it. I take any trash out, I bring in my coats, scarves, hats, I always unload everything that I brought with me or acquired in my trip. My kids, they don’t. So I remind them and they sometimes do a good job, and sometimes they can’t see the forest for the trees and leave half the stuff they brought with them in the car. It’s a continuous thing we work on.
But I insist on it! Because the car can get just cluttered as your home, your desk, your junk drawer (remember last weekend when I cleaned out my junk drawer? I posted pictures on the before and after on Facebook.)
