Car Organization Tips For Small Business Owners on the Move
If your business requires you to be constantly on the move, then you may be spending a lot of time in your car.
You can increase your efficiency by keeping your car well-organized, with all the important items that you need on a daily basis close at hand.
The Glove Box and Front Seat
Your glove box should contain important items such as your business cards, a notepad to jot down important notes, a pen and a log to note down your car's mileage.
This will help you for tax purposes when you need to deduct fuel and mileage expenses.
If you are a music buff, then you can also store your music Compact Discs in the glove box or under the front seat. Your umbrella should also find a place under the front seat.
You can also store some of these items by purchasing a pouch that can be attached to the rear portion of the front seat. They are available in any car accessory shop.
The Trunk of the Car
The trunk of your car can be filled with bulky items such as product samples, brochures and a few empty plastic or paper bags that can be used in case of an emergency.
If you regularly travel long distances, then you can also carry a cooler to store water and sodas, and maybe even a few sandwiches. You may also want to keep a small pack of cookies in the car.
The life of a road warrior can be trying, especially if you are a small business owner. By keeping the above tips in mind, you can make your life on the road a bit more bearable.
