    Anytime I buy a new car, I don't bring to-go food into the vehicle while the new car smell is still fresh. I have some friend for whom taking left overs home is a mandatory experience. So my shiny new cars tend to sit in the drive way on restaurant trips

    My friend suggested using the frunk to transport food as it's outside the main part of the car. Brilliant! This keeps my car smelling nice but also allows us to bring food home.

    Just be aware that the frunk is not climate controlled, so the temperature can be much different than the temperature in the cabin.

    Which may a be a good thing in winter. Cold frunk keeps food fresh :)
    I put my leftovers in frunk during winter, it works well. Keeps the smell outside of the cabin too.
    Just don't forget them there.

    I workout in the mornings at the company gym. The frunk is the BEST place to put my stinky gym bag until I get home in the evening.
    Keeps the stink out of the cabin. :)

    Having a place to store items outside of the cabin definitely seems to be handy. I've ordered a mat for the frunk just in case I ever have some food move around too much in there.

    I have a cargo organizer in my frunk. I've got bottles of detail spray and glass cleaner, rags, gloves, shopping bags, etcetera in it. If I need to take everything out of the frunk I can just remove the canvas organizer.

    I use the Frunk to transport any potentially smell bearing food items such as pizza and cooked chicken, and this totally isolates the smell from the cabin. It was my colleagues idea when she had left overs after a lunch outing. Must preserve new car smell as long as possible.

    All our tempting groceries...see my avatar...go in the frunk, in insulated packs. Our Model S has the original, larger frunk that diminished greatly once Tesla brought out the D; it's one of the unsung virtues of these ancient, creaky old 2013 vehicles.

    It's a great idea as long as you don't forget it.

    Always the FOOD TRUNK as we call it. My family is now programmed to put away everything and anything that is stinky, spillable, strong odor, & dirty right into the FOOD TRUNK.
