So, you all know that I purchased a new car last week. With that comes the new car smell, and the cleanliness that goes along with it as well. The problem is, cleaning and organizing are not easy for me. They really just do NOT come naturally.
I am happy surrounded by clutter, and seeing an empty plastic bag or 3 ball caps on the floor of the car doesn't seem weird at all. Junk mail and receipts cluttering the console - oh well, get them another time. Crumbs from the kids bagels, crushed up goldfish? Oops - I guess the car needs a vacuum at some point.
Now that I have this brand new clean car though, I am really liking the space and emptiness of it. I am *hoping* that I can keep it somewhat clean. My goal is to not let the kids eat in the vehicle, and they are only going to be allowed water to drink. I am not really sure how long that will last, but I hope it will continue.
One mistake with the JEEP was that I never did buy rubber floor mats, so all the snow, dirt and rocks ended up stuck deep into the carpeting. I will be purchasing some new floor mats VERY soon to help keep things clean.
Is your vehicle clean or more "lived in"? Please tell me I am not the only one.
