I love going on road trips and Scott basically works from his car because his job involves so much driving. Which means I know what comes in handy when you basically live in your car. If you work from your car, or spend a lot of time driving check out my Amazon finds: Car organization, essentials, and gadets! I have searched Amazon for the coolest new gadgets, the best in car organization & cleaning, to make your car feel a little more like home.
Also check out my Amazon Car Safety Essentials, Things I Always Keep in My Car, Dog Car Essentials, and Mom Car Essentials Guide!
Amazon Finds: Car Organization, Essentials, and Gadgets:
Waterproof Trash Can– So handy! Gone are the days when I toss trash into my backseat until it starts to smell. Plus it has a side pocket for wet wipes and hand sanitizer!
Cleaning Gel– Get the pesky crumbs and dust out of hard to reach places like air vents and cup holders. Ick!
Cell Phone Holder-I don’t like the air vent ones because I don’t want the heat to ruin my phone. This one is flexible so you can adjust the placement of your phone. I use my phone for both music selection and GPS as I drive. So keeping it within hands reach without having to hold it is perfect.
Documents Organizer– Super cute to keep your registration and insurance documents organized and easy to grab
Cup Holder Coasters– Catch crumbs and drips in your cupholders. Then take them out and easily clean them.
Trunk Organizer– I like this one because it can fold up, but depending on the size of your trunk it might not fit well in smaller cars. That being said it’s great to organize all the Things I Always Keep in My Car.
Car Vacuum– This one is great for wet and dry messes. Messes will happen (Especially if you have kids and/or pets in the car!)
Seat Gap Organizer– Prevent things from falling in the gap beside your seat. PLUS add extra pocket space AND usb ports! Double check it will fit in your specific car.
Headrest Purse Hooks– Makes it super easy to keep your purse/jacket/backpack handy but out of the way.
Hanging Trunk Organizer– I am all about adding pockets, and extra storage. Again it won’t fit all trunks, but if you have the vertical space use it!
Adjustable Headrest– Great for road trips! This adjustable head rest means you don’t get neck cramps as you snooze.
Steering Wheel Tray– If you work or eat in your car, attach this tray to your steering wheel (obviously not while driving). So you don’t have to balance things on your lap. Genius!
Memory Foam Seat– If you spend all day sitting in your car, you may need a little extra cushion and support.
Fuzzy Steering Wheel Cover– First of all, super stinking cute! Second this fuzzy cover is great in winter when your steering wheel is freezing cold.
Mesh Window Cover– Prevent sun glare for your kids whether the window is open or closed. Plus the mesh allows for a breeze to flow without lettings bugs in!
Cup Holder Expander– Jumbo cups, Yetis, and 1L Water-bottles can finally have a place in your car! It fits any standard cupholder. It expands to fit larger cups and it swivels so you can still use the regular cup holder!! Plus the slots allow mugs with handles to fit with ease.
Clip On USB Fan– Great for summer! You can use it in the car for the kids if your A/C doesn’t reach the rear seat. Or bring it outside to the park, beach, soccer game etc.
Car Plug Adapter– This little powerhouse allows you to plug in multiple USBs and a regular plug using your car lighter!
USB Air Purifier- When you spend hours in your car you realize that dust, pollution, and fur just circulate (especially if the weather won’t let you put your windows down). This purifier is USB powered which means it works great with one of the adapters on this list.
Sun Visor Organizer– Pockets, Sunglass holder, and a Zip Pocket means this can hold lots of stuff and keep it organized and out of your way!
Anti Slip Mat– Put this on your dash and anything you throw on it won’t slip (no matter how crazy you drive!)
Car Windshield Cover– If you live in cold climates you NEED this! Don’t waste 15 min every morning scraping the ice and snow off your car. Simply put this on at the end of the day and take it off the next morning. It even attaches inside your door so people can’t steal it.
Portable Mini Cooler/Warmer– Great for road trips, beach days, picnics, long commutes and those that need to keep their medication chilled. I like this one because it has the option to heat or cool depending on what you need. There are other mini coolers that will go below 0 degrees if you want to keep ice cream/popsicles frozen, but those are about 3x more expensive!
LED Light Strips– Turn your car into a party mobile with these LED light strips!
Air Vent Cup– I am all about adding pockets and storage wherever I can. Keep your sunglasses, pens, phone, lip chap or whatever super handy by attaching it to an air vent. Great for the passenger side too!
Dashboard Coin Holder– It’s great to keep loose change around, but having it in plain view can be a thief magnet. Keep it put away, but still handy!
Air Vent Clips– These air vent clips are perfect for organizing cords, face masks, sunglasses, small bags, whatever!
Reusable Small Fold Tote Bag– I love these tote bags because they fold up so small. Plus they unfold and hold so much! Grocery shop without the plastic bag guilt!
Heated Lunch Box– If you often have to eat lunch in your car (or love picnics!), but are tired of packing cold lunches, this USB heated lunch kit can keep your food warm.
Sun Visor LED Mirror– I love this mirror with the LED frame lighting for makeup application and selfies. It totally beats the tiny sun visor mirror or the rearview mirror.
USB Disco Light– Set the party mood with this music changing USB disco light!
Inflatable Car Mattress or Inflatable Foot Rest– If you ever need to sleep in your car, this inflatable car mattress can provide a little extra comfort. Just double check your car measurements to make sure it’ll fit!
UV Sanitizing Wand– Clean your phone, your keys, and your face mask in a snap with this UV wand.
Essential Oil Diffuser– If you hate the scents of car air fresheners, try this essential oil diffuser and humidifier for your car. Eliminate some of the stress of traffic and driving with aromatherapy.
Kleenex Holder– I really like this one, because it can attach to the back of your headrest. There are also the ones that attach to the sun visor, but I already have 2 sun visor accessories on this list
Key Finder– Never lose your keys, your phone, or your car in the parking lot again! Simply attach the little tag and when you activate the remote it’ll beep super loud and flash.
Side Storage Pocket– Pockets Pockets and more pockets! Perfect for organizing Things I Always Keep in My Car
Wire Holders– Keep your charging cords, aux cords and any other cords out of the way but still within reach with these cord holders.
Cup Holder Tray– This little tray sits in your car holder and swivels making it perfect for the passenger or the driver to have a little tray.
Ceiling Storage Net– Store bulky jackets and pillows above your head rather than in the trunk or squished between people. Perfect for road trips, but it may not work for smaller cars with little headroom.
Slim Pocket– Attach this tiny pocket to the dashboard, or car doors for a little extra storage (do you sense a theme yet?)
So there you go! Keep your car clean, organized, and fun! Comment below your favorite items!
