That's my life the past two days!

My husband went thru the house went thru drawers, cabinets, pantry etc. and changed it all to the way that he likes it! I didn't mind, didn't even complain - he did what I wanted to do but now it's done and CLEAN! Like the cleaning company came to my house! New year new clean :)

 Just tell each kid they can't leave the car without taking something in each hand out with them. After a few rounds of this, you should be good to go!

you are looking for words of wisdom for your car??

boxes!  the collapsible kind are best.  Each kid needs to put his/her items in a box, you can simply remove the box at the end of the day.  Keep a box up front for your items, take the box in the house with you at the end of the day.

If we had a car, I know I would use this suggestion ...it is a great one. Each child would have their own color and I thinks some of the collapsable boxes are washable.

 oh dear don't look at me...when I had my van I was always cleaning it out...I'm a neat freak in that respect.  Now, with the truck it's so dang small we don't have room for a mess LOL...
