Welcome to Day 24 of the 31 Days of 10-minute Purging Tips Challenge. Purging and eliminate items we don’t need from our lives and home make it possible to better enjoy life. Often we overlook organizing our car, but we spend so much time in our car each day that we need to make time to keep it organized. Let’s clear the clutter from our car today.
How many hours do you spend in your car each day? Each week? Probably too many if you’re like me. Keeping your car neat and organized makes all those hours you spend in the car a bit more pleasant.
Clearing Clutter – Purging Tips for the Car
Grab the 6 purging bags you created earlier and print your free copy of the Purging Clutter Checklist. Now, let’s head out to the car.
Take Everything Out- Keep in mind we’re doing this in 10 minutes. Concentrate on either inside the car or the trunk. You can come back to the other items another time you have 10 minutes.
Group Like Items Together – Throw the trash away immediately and then quickly group like items together.
Evaluate – Does this item belong in the car? Often items are left in the car and just never returned to where they belong. Now is the time to put them back where they belong. Consider how many items you really need in your trunk. It’s a balance between having the items you need in your trunk, like a first aid kit and jumper cables, and having too many unnecessary items that just reduce your fuel efficiency. Go through all those papers you’ve stuffed in the glove box. Keep the necessary important documents in your car, but shred or recycle the rest.
Purge – Remove items you don’t need to keep and place them in one of your 6 purging bags.
Put Everything Away – Put the items you’ve decided to keep in you car back away.
With your car nicely cleaned out is the perfect time to spring clean your car.
You can also organize your car for free using repurposed items.
We’ve completed day 24. Yes! Another day down. Join me tomorrow for Day 25 in the 31 Days of 10-Minute Purging Tips challenge. Let’s purge some more so you can make room to enjoy life more.

I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
I’m so geeky I made a divided storage unit for the center console of my car out of cardboard:)
Lo-ove that idea, Seana. As soon as it warms up and I go outside again, I’m going to make one, too.
