Three Things to Consider When Choosing a Car Seat Organizer

Keep tabs on everything in your vehicle.

All that stuff that slips down between the car seat and the console…it’s annoying, isn’t it? Everything goes MIA down there—cell phones, sunglasses, writing pens, coins, greasy hamburger wrappers and more. And it’s even worse in the back seat, especially if you have children whose attention skips from juice boxes to plush toys to electronic games to cracker bags every 17 seconds. Getting a handle on the clutter is as simple as installing a car seat organizer, either in the front seat or attached to the back of the front seat, depending on where your garbage gremlins ride. When you’re ready to get your mobile life in order in a snap, here are three things to think about when choosing a car seat organizer.

There’s a wide range of car seat products that fit into the various cracks and crevices of a front seat. If you have a few inches of space between the seat and the console, or there’s a bit of extra room between your leg and the console, you might consider an organizer that slips into that crevice, but widens at the top. Look for one that is large enough to hold a water bottle or coffee cup, in addition to spare coins and other loose items.

Just because there’s hardly enough room to cram your hand between the seat and console doesn’t mean there’s not enough room for a handy organizing solution. An envelope-style organizer will slip into spaces less than half an inch wide, and still provide plenty of out-of-the-way storage for slimmer items such as glasses, cell phones, coins, and car charger.

Adjustable Straps

This product measures 24 inches by 16 inches and comes with a 10-inch tablet holder, making it easy for passengers to watch movies during the drive. Uleeka

Car seat organizers that attach to the back of the front car seat are a winner. They’re totally out of the way of the driver, but completely in reach of backseat passengers. That makes them perfect for families with young kids who can’t be distracted every time Junior wants a different toy. And they’re also great for business workers who often need to store documents and samples in a handy, quick-to-access manner.
