inside your vehicles..

Got me thinking because I have seeen cars that seemed to be the crazy full of "stuff" and you have to clear piles of things off the seats just to be able to sit....
What are the inside of your vehicles like?
Mine is like my house, generally tidy, lived in but certainly not either "clean" or "messy"

I try to keep it cleaned out but, when the garbage bag gets filled it takes me awhile to put a new one in. Between the 2 front seats is piled with old sale ads, the odd food wrapper and 1 pair of socks (Not even sure how they got there!). It would only take me 5min at the most to clean it up.
My glove compartment is stuffed. It is mostly vehicle related stuff though.
Outside...I try to keep it cleanish. I just hate spending the money on a car wash. In the winter (when I should wash most LOL) I run it through the wash whenever it get to a point that I am bothered by it.

I have soccer ball, hockey sticks, folding chairs, shoes, books, too much stuff. I keep it fairly clean inside, like vaccuming and that, but it's cluttered. KWIM?
Can't wait for warmer weather where I can plurge through it and clean it. I hate having messy cars.

I usually go through the car wash every Thursday when we fill up, unless we have a snow storm, then I wait till the next day and go through to wash off the salt. In the summer I use the wash stations or just do it in my drive as needed.
As for interior, at the moment I'm waiting for a thaw so I can take all the mats out and wash them and spot clean the carpets, but other than that its still fairly clean. I tend to do a wipe down one a week and dd has a storage bin on the back seat to keep all her bits and bobs in. My s/o has a garbage container that he uses about 75% of the time, which is a huge difference from using the passenger side floor to store his trash (HUGE PET PEEVE).
I've always been a little neurotic when it comes to my cars because I figure if you are going to fork out that kind of money for something you better take care of it

The outside we like to do as often as possible in the winter months, to keep teh salt off it..... saves your vehicle..
AS for the inside, its a mess right now, no garbage just stuff... I keep extra blankets, shovel, small bag of salt, folding chair, emergency light & extra gloves, dog leash....
there is tons of dog hair.. hard to vacuum it.... it's bad lol.. try wearing a black wool coat in my van lol

it wouldn't bother me if he would actually clean it up, but he doesn't! it's to the point, to save ourselves the argument we will go on a "date" about once a month when we drop ds at school....we drop the car at a detailing place and get it cleaned, vaccumed etc and we go have a coffee together. voila! no more fighting!
