If you're like me, and basically live in your car, you'll know exactly what I mean when I say it's seen better days.

That is why I decided to make a list of things (that I may or may not do) to make my car a better space to live and breathe.

So if you want to join me in transforming into ~that friend~, read on and thrive!

1. Get yourself some car seat gap fillers to avoid your phone disappearing into ~the void~.

2. Keep a stash of wet wipes in your car for a quick and seamless wipe down when dust and dirt get the better of you.

3. Get yourself a handy and surprisingly stylish car bin where you can dispose of said tissues and wipes.

4. Keep a car charger handy for mornings you wake up with no juice.

5. Ensure your car is smelling funky fresh with an effective and aesthetically pleasing air freshener.

6. Invest in a medical grade first aid kit to keep in your boot in case of any emergencies.

7. Stock up on nutritious snacks to keep those fast food cravings at bay when you're driving home from work.

8. Stash those snacks in a cute but versatile lunch bag that you can keep in your car door compartment.

9. Keep a towel and a change of clothes in your boot ~just in case~.

10. Make sure you've got shopping bags for impromptu trips to the shops.

11. Then when you return with your shopping, have a handy shopping divider to organise your boot.

12. Keep your boot clean with a waterproof car boot protector (especially great if you have pets!)

13. Never lose a parking ticket or your sunglasses again with a sun visor organiser.

14. Keep a bottle of hand sanitiser on hand for those moments you can't remember the last time you washed them.

15. Sunscreen, for always. There's literally no time this won't be useful.

16. And finally, go back to basics with a weatherproof notebook and pen in your car, because you never know when you'll need it!
