Did you ever lose something in your car and need it for your meeting tomorrow? Digging under the seat, you find random items, combs, empty wrappers, etc… but not the lost thing. Today we are sharing some organized business travel tips to make your mobile business be as efficient as your physical office.
1. Divide your car into sections. Have a section for pens, a section for papers, a section for files, etc… Use a cup in the cup holder to hold your cup. Ask yourself these questions:
- Where do you place your suitcase?
- Where do you place your papers when in the cars?
2. Have a place for your suit jacket? Using a suit hanger that attaches to your headrest works excellent.
3. Need to store papers in your car? Buy a traveling file tote for the car/trunk. Plastic filing boxes or this tote below are great for filing papers.
4. Add a trash car to hold all the trash that accumulates in the car from your travels.
