When we bought our new van last fall, we moved my daughter to the back seat in preparation for when baby #3 would be joining us. She loves having the back seat all to herself and being able to color and read to her heart’s content, but unfortunately, it’s become a bit of a mess due to a lack of organization. I’ve been meaning to find something for her to store her different belongings, but it didn’t happen. That is, until I went to Target last week and found some awesome stuff in the dollar spot!
Trying to find a solution to our back seat organization problem has been on my mind for a few months, but with all the preparations for the new baby, her birth, then our time in the hospital, it hasn’t happened. As I looked around the dollar spot at Target, I found a bunch of different car activities. But when I saw this combination clip board storage case for $5, I snatched it up. It was perfect for holding my daughter’s colored pencils, coloring pages and stickers. (You can find a similar one here.)
Next, I picked up a cool activity book for each of my kids (similar). It’s small enough that it won’t take up a lot of space, but there are a ton of fun things for them to do, plus stickers. I also love that it’s small enough to fit inside my daughter’s new clip board storage case. #winning Some of the activities might be a little advanced for my son but there are enough that he can do by himself or ask for help with that I think it will be worth the $3 I spent on each of them.
In all, I spent a little over the $10 that is part of the monthly Target challenge I co-host, but for what I got, I’m totally okay with that! With the end of school coming up and summer right around the corner, I expect that we’ll be spending some time in the car doing different activities and I know we’ll get some great use out of the things I found. Plus, if it helps my car stay organized at the same time, then it’s definitely worth the extra $1 I spent. *wink*
To see what the other co-hosts got for $10 at their local Target, check out the links below. And we’d love for you to join us next month and let us know what you found.
