Ashley's idea for using a canvas bin to cart things from car to house, and to keep the mini-van picked up is working great for us!
I found this great bin with wheels at Target for $14.99 ..it is perfect for us, because the boys can help me cart it back and forth.
Some things I have noted since using it myself...
* Ashley is right ..you gotta empty it as soon as you get in the door at home. If not, it will not be ready to take it with you next time out the door
* When it is just me and the boys, it sits in the passenger seat so it is easiest to put stuff in and take stuff out, like snacks for the kids or my wallet for getting cash from the ATM
* It has helped 100% in collecting all the trash that we seem to collect in the van. That really is most of the mess we had in there. Now, ALL of it goes in the CB and I just empty it out as soon as we get in the house
* I found a couple of water bottles at Target for $1. The are for the boys to carry to the car, and stay in the CB when we are at home. They arent for home use, in other words. That works for us.
Anyways, just thought I would share...thanks again Ashley for sharing your idea!
