Despite our best intentions as parents, we sometimes fall a little short. We harp on our kids to keep their rooms picked up and may even dock their allowance if they don’t, yet look at our own cars. They’re filthy. Disgusting. What if your pay was docked for not keeping your car clean?
Our team of Cars.com Family contributors has learned a lot this past year as we drove car after car with our gaggles of kids in the backseat (a total of 13.5 kids to be exact), and we’re sharing our lessons learned with you, dear readers. Here are our family-car resolutions for 2012:
1. Clean out Your Crumbs
Every parent should own an in-car vacuum. Our cars get so messy on a daily basis with dirt, sand, snack crumbs — you name it. The ability to quickly suck those puppies up would be indispensable.
2. Trash It
We also need to invest in an in-car trash can of some sort. Are you starting to notice a theme?
