Car trunks can quickly turn into a disorganized mess from the day-to-day hustle of running errands. And when you’re on a road trip? Tidiness has a tendency of flying all the way out the window. Even the most expert of packers can find themselves searching through piles of bags and gear trying to look for that one thing they swear they just saw.
The easiest way to get ahead of the mess? Invest in a trunk organizer to keep your belongings sorted, save on space, and keep things right where you need them. With more than 5,000 perfect ratings, Drive Auto Products Car Trunk Organizer is one such gem Amazon shoppers count on to control the chaos.
“I got this for a road trip through California and Oregon, to put on the back seat so we’d have everything handy (snacks, iPad, hats, flashlight, etc.),” one shopper said. “It worked great! I loved the two big main sections and all the varied side pockets. It has two handles, so we could just carry it into our hotel room.”

The handy organizer has sturdy side panels for support, and they easily collapse so that it’s out of the way when you don’t need it. An adjustable tie-down strap system secures the organizer in your trunk or backseat, and reinforced carrying handles make it possible to quickly bring groceries into the kitchen or road trip must-haves into the hotel.
“Before having this, my trunk was always a mess,” another reviewer said. “I have a 12" subwoofer and tons of tools in my car trunk, so having this is very necessary. The organizer is able to hold a bunch of different tools, including a floor jack and two jack stands. It keeps everything nice and tidy back there so I don’t have to hear all of my tools knocking around while I drive.”
Whether you’re hitting the road on an old-fashioned road trip or just can’t stand the sound of a container of juice rolling around your backseat, this is one organizational hack you need in your corner. Head to Amazon to get the highly rated car organizer in black, tan, or gray.
