Does your car constantly seem to verge on being a complete disaster? Do you find items all over the seats, and under them? A visor organizer can provide a very simple organization solution, giving you a way to take some of that “mess” and properly store it. Here are a few tips to consider when in the market for a car visor organizer:
All you need is a visor: Visor organizers can be purchased for any car with a visor. You can purchase a couple and put one on the driver’s side, and one on the passenger side. Typically they are used to store CDs, loose papers, business cards, pen/pencil, loose change, maps, glasses, and more. If you plan to store glasses, look for a visor organizer with a dedicated padded glasses compartment.
Size and options: There are a wide variety of options available in all price ranges. You can get as little or as many pockets/compartments as you want. Typically the ones with more pockets fit better in a larger vehicle such as a minivan or SUV. Be sure you take measurements of your visor ahead of time, so you know how much space you’re working with. Some of the pockets feature Velcro flaps or a zipper, which is great for items you want to be sure you don’t lose.
Giving up your visor mirror: A visor organizer will end up covering your mirror and light, if you have one, so you may want to look for one that comes with its own built in mirror.
If you have been trying to figure out a way to organize your belongings in the car, then the visor organizer can certainly do the trick.
