The Stuff in the Vehicle

Repurposed cosmetic bags purchased from thrift storesThe Problem

There is never enough storage space in one’s vehicle for all the items one finds it necessary to cart around.

The Solution

I buy zippered cosmetics/toiletries bags and containers from my local thrift stores, clean them up, and use them to store items in my vehicle. They work perfectly for holding all sorts of oddly-shaped things and for keeping dissimilar things neatly separated. They can also be stuffed into those sometimes awkwardly-shaped storage compartments in vehicle doors, floors, consoles, and dashboards.

  • Tools
  • Chains
  • Hitches
  • Bike rack pins
  • Tie-downs
  • Bungee cords
  • Audio cables
  • Car chargers
  • Parking garage tokens
  • Coupons—Yes, I keep coupons in my vehicle because a coupon left at home does no one any good
  • Maps
  • Tissues
  • Reusable produce bags
