How am I even supposed to FIND anything in there?! God forbid I hear the words, "License and registration, please". I would have to ask Officer Buckle for a good 15 minutes to find even my insurance card. Ridiculous.
Needing some inspiration, I headed to any girl's favorite inspiration mecca, Le Target. Whilst perusing the fantastical dollar aisle, I stumbled upon this butte.
It's an expandable file that is about 5" by 9". A perfect fit for important documents and for the glove box.
108 pennies later, it was mine.
I began the organization process by seeing what documents I had in my glove box, and then sorting those papers into like-categories. After grouping the documents, I then placed them behind their respective files.
Since the tabs were not large enough for me to write a title for the contents directly on the tabs, I decided to number the tabs and then have a "table of contents" velcroed onto the front of the file for easy reference.
For my table of contents, I used the "Wish I Were Taller" font from www.kevinandamanda.com as well as a perfectly polka dot border from Karen Cox's TPT Store. If you haven't downloaded her free polka dot labels, you MUST! Now. I'll wait.
Now, rather than fighting for a space, like siblings on a 14 hour road trip, all of my car's paperwork is filed away and living happily ever after on top of my owner's manual!
- This project makes maintaining car records effortless and hassle-free, plus it makes your glove box look bright and happy (a status it might have never achieved otherwise)!
- The expandable file cost a whole $1.08. More than ramen, yes, but this little project isn't going to break the bank.
How do y'all organize your car's paperwork? Does your glove box look as sad as mine did yesterday?
