31 Days of Spontaneous Organizing - Day #31: Car/Van Back seats and trunk

Today is Day #31 of 31 days of spontaneous organizing! Your mini-challenge for today is the back of your car or van, specifically the back seats and trunk. Can you believe this is the LAST day of Spontaneous Organizing!

Here are more ideas for organizing the back seats and trunk of your car or van. Yesterday I mentioned the rules I have in my van for my kids. I don't allow food or drinks in the car, if at all possible. And if I must, they are responsible for cleaning up after themselves - water is fine, though. It's your car and your rules, so you do what you need to. I understand some of you feed kids on the way to places, but you'll need to come up with a system or way of keeping them accountable for the mess - or, try to feed less-crumbly foods {my two cents}. 

The trunk area contains a trunk tray, but you could use a cardboard box to help contain the things you keep in there. 

I keep my extra grocery bags, a first aid kit, umbrella, and DVDs with remote and headphones in a tray that I got from Ikea. 

I also keep a couple of towels to lay on the carpet when I have dirty things to place inside. 

The kids seats are usually in pretty good shape, but again, I make sure they pick up whatever they leave behind EVERY time we go. If you have a lot of nasty stuff hanging around their seats, figure out a simple
