Last-minute vacation prep can be exhausting. From packing snacks to making sure the kids have everything they need in the back seat, you’re likely running around with a never-ending to-do list. We hate that, and we’re here to help.

We’ve gathered some life-saving car organizers that will help keep your car clean and your sanity intact for your next road trip. Check out these organizers and breathe a little easier for your next big trip.

1. Seat gap filler

If you can buy a soda with the amount of change dropped between your seats, this organizer was made for you. A seat gap filler will help keep things like food, change, phones, etc. from falling between the driver or passenger seat and the middle console. This will help keep your car clean and crumb-free while providing a little extra real estate for storing the necessities around you.

2. Trunk organizer

Between luggage, pillows, food, and all the random things your car has accumulated, the trunk can get messy. Trunk organizers have a surplus of pockets to help keep your car organized and minimize the random items rolling around your trunk. Gone are the days of pulling every single thing out of the trunk, only to find what you were looking for wasn’t even there.

3. Phone magnet

Are you the person who is always losing their phone? Phone magnets can be a lifesaver for the digital crowd. There’s a small piece that attaches to your phone and then a car mount that attaches to your dashboard. The two are magnetic and make storing your phone safe and easy. This can be especially helpful for using GPS to navigate. You can drive safely knowing that you won't have to dig your phone out from under your seat!

4. Cooler

What is a summer road trip without snacks? Instead of grocery bags full of food and drinks rolling under seats, try out a car cooler. Look for one that fits easily between seats. This is a great way to keep your snacks and drinks organized and easily accessible for the whole trip. And check out this post about the best healthy road trip snacks if you are looking for some ideas.

5. Seat back organizer

Whether you’re traveling with kids or friends, a seat-back organizer is perfect for making sure there’s no shortage of fun for the entire trip. Many of these kinds of organizers have a place for iPads, and pockets for all your random necessities. They fit snugly to the back of any seat, and they keep the floor clean and the car organized for days. Your car clean-up time just got a whole lot shorter.

No one likes getting to their destination after a long road trip in the car and not being able to find what they need. These car organizers will keep things in place and help you have the best road trip yet!
