Does it seem like you are constantly misplacing things in the car? Do you have kids that ride in the backseat? Do their belongings seem to be scattered all over the seat and floor at all times? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you could probably use a seat back organizer.
A seat back organizer secures to the back of the seat, and contains either one or a number of pockets/compartments. The idea is that you can stow all kinds of items in them, effectively keeping them off your floors and seats. It also makes finding what you want much easier, and faster. Here are a couple things to keep in mind with regards to seat back organizers:
Compartments and options: Some seat back organizers contain compartments that are deep and big enough to store movies, tissues, CDs, video games, snacks, toys, and other necessities. If you're shopping for a seat back organizer a child will be using, there are some that fold down to give a working desk of sorts. This allows them to have a snack, and work on drawings while driving.
Material and size: If you plan on storing heavy items in it, be sure to look for one that is constructed in a sturdy manner. As well be sure to take the measurements of your seat before making any purchase. You may find that some are better suited for larger vehicles.
A seat back organizer can help you get all that “stuff” off the floors and seats of your car and making it possible for you to, once again, have a clutter-free ride.
