Let’s sort out the car door console on National Name Your Car Day.
Do you name your cars? Our family always did, growing up I learned to drive in Big Red, a burgundy station wagon. After that we had Chewy, a tan van, named after the character in Star Wars. Today, I drive Cali, a mini SUV that I bought in, you guessed it, California.
Sometimes naming inanimate objects helps when trying to stay organized. I always want Cali to look shiny on the outside and clutter-free on the inside. But sometimes naming inanimate objects deters us from getting organized. For example, my teddy bear Mr. Smush is a lot more difficult to part with, it would be easier if it was just a regular bear. Once I gave it a name, it took on a personality and that makes it more difficult to let go of.
So quick recap, name your car and clean it out, but don’t name your cute stuff!
