Here's an easy mod that is inexpensive and very useful. I did this a long time ago on my '89 Accord, in fact this is still the original container.

You want to find a litter bucket with a false bottom. This one had a small amount of sand in a baggie to keep it from tipping.

Attach a 2" - "L" bracket to the false floor and reassemble.

Cover in my favorite all purpose material... velcro.

You need to insert a small tissue box and transfer the opening dimensions to the side wall of the bucket.

I used a tape measure, located the 4 corners of the opening to the bucket and punched 4 small holes, one at each corner. Next, connect the dots with a straight edge.

Use a sharp utlity knife and scribe along the lines between the holes until the opening falls out. Insert the tissue box and check the alignment.

The last part is to attach another L bracket to the outside (back side). This part is a little tricky as you need to ensure the height is correct for the specific car it will go on.

Try taping the bracket with duct tape before drilling any holes into the bucket before mounting permanantly.

Cover with some... (right again) velcro and wedge it in between the lower seat cushion and floor.

You now have the perfect travel accessory. A combo tissue dispenser and litter bucket, easily reached even from the front seats.

Enjoy ;)

I usually stick a box of tissues on the floor in the back, on the passenger side.
Right where I can reach it just by leaning back and reaching down with my right arm.

Except a lot of the time it moves itself around a little, sometimes even wedges itself under the passenger seat, sometimes migrates God-knows-where. So I'm reaching back there, around and around, contorting my arm, then my whole body, feeling around for the f*****g box of tissues...... still driving, of course..... then I start sneezing...... still reaching around, my wife asks me wtf I'm doing, can she help me or anything, I say "Do I look like a guy who needs help?"......

Maybe I should try your mod. :D

All of us have been there. My wife put a travel box (plastic bag) of kleenex in the center console. Not a mod but cheaper yet (free) :)
