I received a sample Car Cache for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
Ladies, have you ever slid behind the wheel of a car and wondered where to place your purse? We women are touchy about our personal property. Let’s face it, our purse is like an extension of ourselves. We like to keep it within arms’ reach and easily accessible. I don’t feel comfortable if I need to stash my purse in the backseat or on the passenger side floor. I don’t even like to place it on the passenger seat when I’m riding solo because I’ve had the items inside my purse fall out on the floor more than once.
Where to stash our purse becomes quite a challenge at times, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a solution.
Enter the Car Caché , a simple purse storage organizer.
While the Car Caché is great for day to day use, it was invaluable to me on a recent family road trip. My large purse, which resembles a tote bag, was stuffed with everything that I considered essential for my comfort on the trip. A cell phone, pens, notebook, books, brochures and change for the toll roads, I had packed it all! And I wanted it nearby. Not at my feet taking up valuable floor space, where it could get trampled on and dirty, and not in the back of the vehicle where it would get lost amid teens and luggage. The Car Caché was the perfect solution for me.
It took only seconds to install and held my purse securely, right within my reach, while keeping it off the console so my husband could still use the arm rest while he was driving.
I was a bit eager to hit the road with my family when my husband pulled up with the rental vehicle, so I didn’t take the time to glance at the simple directions. I realized after watching the video that I should have had my straps in front of the seat and not behind it. I didn’t know the difference, and yet the Car Cache worked well for me. Just keep in mind when you install yours that you really should read the directions.
When I was introduced to the Car Caché, I thought it was a good idea. Good. Not great. And I certainly didn’t think it was something that I NEEDED to have. After using it for over a week on our road trip and reviewing a sample, I reserve the right to change my mind.
The Car Caché is definitely one of those items you had no idea you needed until you use it and then wonder how you managed without it.
I now want one for each of my vehicles.
Seriously, it is that handy.
When my teenage daughter sat in the front seat with me on our trip, she commented on how great the Car Caché was, which really surprised me. I thought she was being sarcastic, so I questioned her and found out she was sincere. She loved it when she was in the front seat. The one thing she didn’t like? She couldn’t prop her feet up on the console when riding in the back seat when the Car Caché was in place. I don’t know about you, but to this traveling mom, that sounds like another bonus for the Car Caché!
What you need to know
The Car Caché only works with vehicles that have a front center console with a cover and the driver and passenger side headrests must have posts that are accessible as shown in the video in this article.
The Car Caché is available in black for $24.95 and is available to purchase on Amazon.
The Car Caché is easily portable, weighing only 6 ounces, which makes it perfect to stash in a carry-on bag and install in a rental car at the airport, keeping your hand bag clean, out of the way and easily accessible, allowing you to focus your attention on the road.
