  1. Ok so I splurged and bought a new vehicle and since we moms do live in our cars I am determined to keep It clean and organized! These tips are genius! Love the idea of a car vacuum! That drop stop will be so nice! EVERYTHING falls in between right there. I always leave my coupons at home when I could use them so now I jane a file folder on my list! Oh man my daughter and I HATE having to pee outside but sometimes It happens. Now I need To buy a few of those go girl! I have never seen them! Thank you so much for th earn tips. My life is going to be so much more easier!

  2. IVe almost bought go girl a couple of times but resisted. I’m gonna revisit! LOVE travel tips. I’ve got 6 kids and we love to road trip!

  3. Oh man I never thought about the diaper hack!!! That’s amazing.

    And those things looked like fruit leathers 😂😂

  4. Great tips! I just learned a new one today. Apparently there are portable hard drives that emit their own wifi signal. So instead of storing movies or games on your phone or tablet, you can store it on the hard drive, and all your devices can connect to it to watch movies. I thought it was an awesome tip for road trips since the cheap tablets we bought for road trips don’t have much internal storage, and I’ve had a problem with the add on memory cards breaking.

  5. I love all these ideas! I keep a hot/cold insulated bag for groceries, just in case. I also always keep a roll of TP because…life!
