What Is It
A lot of us spend a lot of time in our cars – depending on how long your commute is or how many errands you have to run, you might spend over an hour a day just in your car! That means that clutter and messes tend to accumulate pretty quickly in a place where we rarely want to spend even more time just to clean it out. Plus, most of us keep a lot of items in our cars in case of emergency or because it’s usually the one thing that’s always with us when we’re out and about.
For all those reasons, keeping your car organized can make your life so much easier, and High Road Organizers is especially focused on car organization. Selling trash bags, phone organizers, entertainment items, cargo organizers, and car organizers, High Road Organizers is designed to take every piece of junk and unorganized mess and turn it into a happy place where it’s easy to find what you need.
Their High Road Car Organizer Gift Set is one of their best-selling items. A three-piece set that’s available in either black or pink, the gift set includes the High Road Basics Litter Bag, the High Road Basics DriverPockets, and the High Road Basics Backseat Organizer. All made from heavy-duty pack cloth and designed for easy cleaning, you’ll have an cleaner car in no time. Plus, all items are fully adjustable and universal to be designed to work in most car models with no issues.
The Backseat Organizer has 4 roomy pockets with an elastic band to stretch to fit. Some of the pockets have see-through mesh for easier organization while the largest pocket can easily fit a full-sized atlas. The phone organizer can fit phones up to 3″ in width and includes a soft-lined back pocket to keep your phone safe. The Litter Bag features a leakproof design with a 3-gallon capacity and a Velcro closure.
Keeping my car organized is pretty important to me. I like to have an organized home, but at the same time, with a car, it seems so much easier to make a mess. After all, there’s any food stops that you make plus receipts, bags, or anything that happens to fall out of grocery bags. Sometimes I need to take things from one place to another, and when that happens, sometimes the items get left in the car for later. Really, it can become harder than it seems to keep your car clean. That’s why I really like to have all of the help I can manage.
The High Road Car Organizer Gift Set comes with a multitude of basic items that most people would want in their car to keep it organized. I like the assortment of items, and I really love that you can get it in either a basic black or an adorable pink. For my interior, I really wanted to go with the black to make sure it all matched my regular car interior.
The first thing I wanted to try was the Driver Pocket. This would make it way easier to find my cell phone or my MP3 player while was driving. As you can see in the photos, I have an MP3 that needs to be connected to the car’s audio cable, but having it right here makes it really easy to see and grab whenever I need it. Putting it in the pocket was really simple. I wouldn’t recommend storing extremely heavy things in this pocket, but sunglasses and a cell phone don’t seem to have any issues.
The Driver Pocket is also pretty easy to put up. It just slides into one of your air vents, and you can twist the holder to ensure that it stays in the spot where you placed it. I have two air vents near the driver’s side that would work for me, but depending on if you regularly have a passenger or not, you could easily add this Driver Pocket to work on any of the air vents in your car. It can help you easily add storage to any seat – especially if your passenger tends to place their phone or other belongings in your cup holders and take up the room you usually want to use.
The High Road Litter Bag works just as well. It’s small enough to avoid being a huge problem or sticking out into people’s area in the backseat, but it’s large enough to fit most car garbage that you’d have sticking around. It can fit a bottle of soda or standard bottled water as well. The interior seems to be a water-resistant material, so if you don’t feel like finding tiny bags to put into the garbage container (reusing grocery store bags would be the perfect size!), then it was pretty easy to wipe up in case something spilled as well.
I’m not too fond about the closure system of the High Road Litter Bag, though. To close the bag, the two sides of the top of the bag just get pressed together, and they hold themselves together with velcro that’s on the inside of both sides of the bag. I think a “lid” would have been a better system for this. I suppose I can see the upside to not having to fuss with a lid, especially as someone sitting in the front seats of the car, but closing the bag via the Velcro requires pushing the two sides of the bag together, and it drastically reduces the amount of garbage that can be stored inside of the bag. I suppose it’s more of a personal preference as to whether the Velcro closure design will be a problem or not.
The final piece of the set is the High Road Basics Backseat Organizer. I could see this being amazing if you have children, but even for those of us without children, it serves a pretty good use. If you tend to keep an atlas or larger maps or items around, this Backseat Organizer makes it possible to keep your maps around without folding them or destroying them by shoving them into smaller areas. It allows your items to lay flat. However, be aware that it’s pretty difficult to access most of these things from the front seat. It’s possible, but it’d be very difficult to do while driving. When parked and able to turn your body around, it’s a whole lot easier.
For that reason, I’ve found that the Basics Backseat Car Organizer can be really fantastic for holding those “sometimes” things like extra napkins, extra straws, a pair of sunglasses, first aid items, emergency maps, a book to read in case something comes up, and stuff like that. It hasn’t worked so well for storing anything I need to access while driving, so that’s something to keep in mind.
This set gives you everything most people would need to do basic organizing of their favorite car. The items are high-quality, and they solve most car-organization needs.
I wish the Litter Bag was designed a little bit differently. Otherwise, everything else is perfect and works really well for me.
The High Road Organizer Gift Set is perfect for anyone who has a car – and wants to keep it organized. Not only does it come in two different and adorable colors, but it features some important products that most people could use in their car.
