- 2020 EX Everlasting Silver
So I've been driving minivans forever, most recently my 08 Odyssey. In cleaning it out for the switchover-it will be one of my kids' car now- I found so much built up stuff from over the past 11 years. So many bins and pouches and cubbies! There were doodads and ickies we hadn't seen in years, literally! The Telly has far fewer and in different places. I'm curious what others have done to make best use of the space. We put the huge manual in the floor trunk thing along with our first aid kit, tool kit and emergency water bottles, and spare t.p. stash. I'm not used to having the deep bin in the armrest and picture it being a tangled mess of whatever. It's set back enough that it is sort of awkward to get into so I'd love some ideas of how you all keep that area useful. Also that little area up front with the phone charger spot. My commute to work is like 5 minutes, so I'd only use that potentially on weekends or trips. Do you just toss stuff in there or keep it empty to access the charger? I've always had a small trashcan, like bathroom size between the first and second row, right in the middle. The console in the Telly is both high enough and far enough back that that won't work for me. What do you do for a trash bin? My only suggestion so far to anyone else is get a swiffer duster, the extending handle kind and keep it in your driver door bin. I've done this for years! They extend out super quick and are great for a quick wipe down of the dash while you sit at a red light. Our Telly has a black interior so that dust will show up super fast I'm sure. I can't reach the back from the driver seat of course, but for a quick touch up it's so convenient. I ordered some hooks to hang over the bars that hold up the headrests, will put one up front to hang my purse from the passenger seat and will use the rest on the 3rd row facing back to the trunk to hang grocery bags.
