Organizing: My Car

I have to have my car organized a certain way: everything needs a special spot! I can't handle messy cars, especially with all of the stuff I have to have for Baby H. Here's a look into my car:
I put Lilly coasters in my cupholders. I got that idea from Ticked Pink and Green. I also keep my spare pair of sunglasses in one of the cup holders. These sunglasses stay in the car.

Side pocket of front door: Thomas Guide for Los Angeles and Bed Bath and Beyond coupons (I have turned into my mom!). The driver's side door pocket has napkins and straws (sometimes drive thrus forget!)

My console has two sections. In the smaller top part I keep: gum, a pen, my bluetooth and apparently a random magnet and paperclip (HA). I usually keep a travel pack of tissues in there too but forgot to restock. On the far left you can see the hand sanitizer that is right above the gear shift/emergency brake. I use that every single day!

In the larger section I keep: travel first aid kit, wipes, packing tape, notebook, tide pen, gum, lotion, tampons, change purse (I am adding a small thing of floss/wisps and travel thing of makeup remover wipes)

I keep this box (on sale at the Container Store) right behind my seat so I can reach back and give Baby H toys/books if we are stuck in traffic. This box has: 1 spare diaper, lysol wipes, toys, books, a spare pair of baby socks and other random baby items

The way back of the car/trunk:
This pink box has Nature Valley granola bars (LOVE these and I like to have emergency snacks in the car), a bag of pop chips, two balls (for park time with Baby H), umbrellas, a travel brush, a lint roller

Also in the way back: forever21 re-usable bags for shopping, a large picnic blanket (I use this at the park with H but it could also be good for an emergency)

What do you keep in your car? What am I forgetting?
