Car Trash Bag Tip

Mom Hack

Keep your car clean with car trash bags that hook onto the back of the front seats.

These bags are a game-changer: they’re reusable, contain odors well, and prevent trash from spilling.

I found great ones on Amazon and empty them weekly during my car cleaning routine.

“I want to say I'm against it but the reality is it is both helpful as a parent and necessary for learning. I want to teach her myself how to use technology in healthy ways and the things she can learn using technology surpass or support our teaching at home.”
