Yes, I said it, Junk in my trunk. Probably in your trunk as well. While I could post a picture of the real junk in my trunk, I am going to keep this much more friendlier and show you the contents of my vehicle. Now, after I did the purge, I realized it wasn't so bad. Recently, I have been taking a few random things here and there back to their appropriate home, but there were still too many things lingering around. I needed to do the official purge.
With the increasing price of gas, did you know that for every extra 100 pounds of junk you carry around you can lose about 1-2% fuel economy. Yes, I lug around an extra 100 pounds easily.
Two strollers, one single, one double. Sunshade for backpack, but where's backpack- oh in the garage of course! Grocery bags (must have!), clean shopper (super must have!!), paper towels, extra clothes, winter vest, husband's courier bag..on and on!
What's not going back- mirror for when GL was rear facing, oodles of cd's, sunshade, 3 blankets, newspapers, catalogs, random toys, trash, empty cups. Believe it or not, I didn't find one old diaper...Wipe my brow!
So for all you fellow bloggers, emptying out the contents of your itty-bitty purses for the web, I challenge you to get rid of your extra vehicle baggage and save some money! Send me the link! Let's screw Exxon, Mobil, and Texaco one mini-van, SUV, or sedan at a time!
Now I can actually "clean" my car! Trust me, it feels good.
