You’ve just been approved to purchase your “new to you” car! It may not be the latest model, but with these quick DIY tips you can turn your used car into the slick ride you’ve always wanted!

Declutter Your Car With Car Accessories

Your car takes you and your family a lot of places – while these trips are often fun, they do a number on your vehicle! Give your car that extra ‘oomph’ by adding a few elements of colour and organization. You’ll be surprised at how great you will feel getting into your car.

Step 1: Add a functional and stylish coin holder! This easy DIY project can be made out of any sturdy container that fits into your cup holder (e.g., yogurt container or plastic cup). Once you find the container you desire, coat the outside with patterned duck tape. Not only does this look nice but it’s also a time-saver when you’re grabbing that needed morning coffee!

Step 2: Add a fashionable storage organizer to the back of your seat! We’ve all had those moments where our books, sunscreen and snacks are shamefully thrown on the floor of our cars. Want to solve this organizational nightmare? Hang a plastic shoe organizer behind your seats for extra storage!

Step 3: Add a portable trashcan to the front passenger side of your car! Avoid garbage falling out of a bag (and all over the car) by using a mobile and ‘close-able’ garbage can! Find an old Clorox container or a plastic cereal Tupperware and fasten it in your car. This easy life hack will forever change your car life!

Air Fresheners As Car Decorations!

As an enclosed space, cars can inherit and develop unwanted smells such as pets, food, or even those dirty gym clothes. Don’t worry; we have a cheap, healthy, and stylish solution!

Do it yourself and decorate with air fresheners!

Making your own air freshener will save you money while being health-conscious. Create your own air freshener using essential oils and avoid toxic chemicals from entering your body.

Although there are many materials to choose from, wool felt is a popular option to use when making your own air freshener. It is easy to cut and is great at holding in scents!

Here are the simple steps to follow when making a wool felt and essential oil air freshener.

Step 1: Cut out the wool felt into any desired shape with scissors.

Step 2: Add several drops of your sought out scent from any wide variety of essential oils.
