Today we wrap up Back to You with a great post from Jessica on a topic that I can definitely relate to: how to make your car less disgusting.

I have a friend whose car is pristine. The dash is always shiny, the windshield is free of smashed stuffs and last fall’s leaves, the rugs in the wheel wells look new. It’s astounding and admirable, and oh, how I want my car to look like that.

I started cleaning, and I was amazed at the end of just a few hours work how much extra space I had not only in my bedroom but also in many other area of the house! After collecting the things I wanted to get rid of, I donated most of it and gave the rest of my things to friends and family, and I was amazed at how free I felt now that the clutter was gone.
