Where to store sunglasses

Hi Guys.
Just got my new 2013 Focus SE Hatch. Moved from a F-150 to save some ga$.
I like the car just fine but am struggling with the lack of storage. Mostly I cant find a good place for my sunglasses. My F-150 had a nice recess on the top of the dash that was great for sunglasses. Just wondering what you guys are doing or if there are any aftermarket accessories that fit the interior to gain more storage space.
Thanks,
Dom

Thanks for the reply. I have my phone charger and umbrella in the door pocket. I cant put the glasses in the arm rest compartment because I have my Ipod in there (not room for much of anything under there). I am not sure what visor clip is but it sounds promising.

You could always use the pockets on the back of the front seats to store stuff as well. But yeah, an additional compartment would be nice.

Does the SE not have a console on the roof. The ST has a place for glasses Just push on a door that comes down to store glasses

Thats just the switches not the console.

Here are visor clips on amazon. You might be able to find them at walmart or an autopart store as well.

My sunglasses are more of a wraparound design and won't fit in the sunglass holder in the overhead console. I tried putting them above the visor like I do in my other vehicles, but they end up falling down on me. The best place I've found is to just hook them over the shifter.
