Upgrade Your Cup Holders
These little beauties aren't just for keeping your hazelnut latte spill-free—they're the unofficial junk drawer (and cell phone holster) of the car. Thankfully, a range of new organizers help maximize this fist-size space, so you can store your phone without having it butt up against your condensation-dripping Big Gulp. Some models even have compartments for your loose change and sunglasses.

Speaking of dripping drinks, Frugal for Life has an easy fix for preventing that sticky residue that inevitably builds up on your cup holders—and causes clutter balls of old gum wrappers, pennies and who knows what else—simply cut sponges (or absorbent coasters) to fit.
