As you know, a lighter car uses less gas mileage, but there are times when you have to cart things around for yourself and/or for your family. Save time by putting the items in some sort of container. It doesn’t matter what season; this happens to be my car with all of our kayaking gear in a large plastic storage box. It sure made it easier for me to take the items out of my basement and put them back where they belong. Containerizing and assigning a home makes the whole process simpler.
