Neat Organizational Idea

I read this idea somewhere online, and I thought I would share it here. I would love to give credit, where credit is due so if it sounds familiar to someone please let me know. 

My husband hates going in my van, he says it is always messy and he is pretty much right. Not only do we have people in the van, but it is also my 'farm vehicle' for getting hay, grain, and other feed items. Though my son does an excellent job cleaning it out, it can get pretty overwhelming so without further ado, here is the idea:

Every time I go to get gas, I clean out the van!! Yes!! It is that easy!! Every gas station has large receptacles for garbage, so why not use them?! I used to feel guilty, like the garbage had to be from the actual place but that is not true. I believed a lie!! (said in jest)  Now I can go and clean my van out and then once a month my son can do a big cleaning and get a little extra money. Isn't that an amazing idea??!! Okay, so maybe I need to get out more but it really thrilled me. :o) 


I read this over at MaryBeths site. She has some other great tips there too!!  :o)

This is a great idea! I also never thought of that. I think I will start cleaning out my car at the gas station as well!
