Dirty Cup Holders and Trashy-ness

on September 9, 2014

I don’t know why, but the cup holders in my car get dirty fast.  They’re a pain in the you-know-what to clean too.  So, I came up with an easy solution.  Silicone cupcake holders.  Yep.  We found the 3″ size in the store, but we were pretty sure they would be too small.  So, we went on the hunt and this is what I ordered.

They fit nicely into my car and they are easy to just pull out and clean.  No more dirty cup holders.  On a side note, I picked those colors on purpose.  Go Chiefs!

Trash.  What to do with it in the car.  I tried several different trash cans that you buy for the car.  The collapsible one kept, well, collapsing.  I also tried the kind that hang from the back of your seat.  That’s fine if you are sitting in the back seat, but apparently they frown on you driving from the back.  It would also be fine if you had ‘go-go gadget’ arms.  I don’t though.  So, I saw this on one of those life-hack posts.  So I tried it.  I went to ‘The Dollar Tree’ and bought a cereal container.


There was a problem though.  It kept tipping over.  So, I added some weight to the bottom.

Then I put in a plastic bag, put the lid on and it’s been very handy.  Now, they will ‘never catch me ridin’ dirty’.


That’s enough about my trash.  Those are 2 little things I use in my car for a little more convenience.
