    O.K. I don't know if others have this problem but i can't see me being the only one.
    We have only the one car in the household which just happens to be my pride and joy Vectra. My wife doesn't drive so therefore is constantly sitting in the passenger seat(obviously)
    My problem is this.........How do I stop the missus from filling up the glovebox and door pocket with an unbelievably large amount of crap?
    There are receipts, random pieces of paper, serviettes from cafes (just in case she needs them coz you never know!!!!), plastic wrappers and god knows what else. The car usually gets a going over once a fortnight and everytime it's done i end up with a carrier bag of bits and pieces

    Someone help me!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had the same problem, she just doesn't understand how important it is for me to keep my car clean.

    Best way to fix the problem is to split up with her, that's what I did.

    Only joking - What I did once, was to put all the stuff from my car into her bag. Naturally, she kicked off; I turned around and said 'that's what it's like for me when you leave it in my car, annoying, isn't it!' She didn't speak to me for the rest of the day, but has sorted the problem.

    It was childish, but I kept on at her, and she just didn't take any notice.

    Sounds like a good idea to me, now where did she hide that skip she calls a bag
