The Best Tip I’ve Ever Had For Parents Taking Road Trips With The Kids. Hint: Floor Mats

If you drive with kids strapped into car seats in the back, you may spend an insane amount of time dealing with things they drop and can’t reach. Even worse, though, is dealing with things they drop and YOU can’t reach, because they’ve ended up under your seat. Here’s the easy solution to your problem:

Just turn the floor mat around, and fold it against the bottom of the seat. (You don’t have to turn it around, but you will block more of the opening if you use the longer, straighter edge.) Boom. Done. All objects dropped will now stay within easy reach of you or your front seat passenger. (Note: I seriously need to vacuum back there. Damn.)

  1. Excellent solution. However: 

    My kids always drop stuff in the space between their car seat’s armrest and the backrest of the regular car seat, effectively preventing anyone from retrieving the it until severe hearing loss is inflicted, due to the screaming. 
    Oh, and the good thing about having older kiddos is that you can assign car vacuuming as a chore. Love that!

  2. If I have learnt nothing else today, this is certainly worth it. What a great idea, thanks!
