Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A trunk organizer with multiple compartments to hold your car essentials like oil, transmission fluid, and even groceries so they won't roll around while you're driving.

    Amazon

    It even comes with a tie-down strap system to secure the bag.

    Promising review: "Love having this to hold my groceries and shopping purchases. It fits perfectly in my trunk. It's well made and very sturdy." —K. Sherid

    Price: $23.97 (available in three colors)

    2. An auxiliary cable that'll play audio from your smartphone through your sound system, because you wanna be able to play your road trip tunes at your leisure, even if the road trip is to the supermarket and back.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "A fantastic audio cable. I was skeptical at first but the cable is highly durable and the connection from my phone to my car is solid! No static so no issues. It's very durable and I regret wasting money in the past on the cheap ones you see online and in stores. They also have a guarantee card in the box. If you aren't happy they refund it or replace. I am buying another one for my work car today!" —Chris Britt

    Price: $5.09

    3. A blind spot mirror so you can check out all the cars behind you so you don't sideswipe that SUV in the next lane, messing up your new paint job and increasing your insurance another hundred dollars.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really like these mirrors. The extended length provides a wide field of view, and they are adjustable vertically for proper view regardless of driver height. I would definitely purchase these again, as they are the best I have found." —RSH

    Price: $10.69 (for a pack of two)

    4. A waterproof pet seat cover to act as a useful shield between your fabric back seats and your pup's long hair that just won't vacuum away easily.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this cover! I don't know how I've lived all these years without this. I have three very hyper dogs that love the dog park but also love to destroy my car there and back. With the cover, they can't scratch the seats, dirty the seats, and best of all can't jump in the front and get in my way while I'm driving. The other day one of my dogs got car sick and threw up all over the cover. Luckily, it was so easy to wash! I've seen others that are not waterproof and I can't imagine what a hassle it must be to have clean it. Seriously a great product!" —Aya Makino

    Price: $18.99

    5. A headrest hanger for keeping all of your bags and purses all in one place while you're doing 80 on the freeway, pretending like you won't get a ticket for speeding.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These have worked out great so far! They fit perfectly on my headrests and I was happy to see that the inside wasn’t just plain plastic, but a slight foam lining. My only concern would be if I had a purse with very thick handles, I don’t think it would hold well." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $7.95 (for a set of two hooks)

    6. A handy power adapter that'll plug into your 12-volt outlet so you can charge all your devices (it has two USB ports and an AC outlet!) while you're on the go.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Life saving item. We use it for the much needed heated pad we always have to take with us in the car for my daughter's chronic pain. It also helps it has two places for USB charge." —Naomi H.

    Price: $16.98

    7. A travel road kit with all the emergency essentials, because you never know when disaster is gonna strike, so it's better to be prepared.

    Amazon

    It includes first-aid supplies, a jumper cable, flashlight, screwdriver, duct tape, bungee cord, a shop cloth, six cable ties, two AA batteries, and an emergency poncho.

    Promising review: "This is a great buy for the price. The cables are built pretty solid, and all these extras make this thing pretty useful should you need it. You should always have a kit like this in the trunk of your car." —Stugi

    Price: $37.68

    8. A bit of car bling for your ignition button, because sometimes you want some kind of decoration in the one (somewhat) reliable thing in your life.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is very well made for the price. The metal is thick and sturdy and it is easy to mount. I expected it to be flexible and flimsy and was pleasantly surprised and how nice it was and it wasn't over the top bling." —Ari

    Price: $6.98 (available in three colors)

    9. A backseat organizer to hold toys, snacks, tablets, and whatever else for all of your tiny tykes who get bored easily during long adventures on the road.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's made very well, no unfinished seams, no loose threads. And fits the seat precisely. It is large enough to protect the entire under-the-car-seat area and the kick backseat organizer will fit all their gear! The fabric seems very cleanable with a damp cloth and soap." —Cruise Mom

    Price: $24.77

    10. A pair of side seat caddies (they fit *between* the seat and the console) for storing any keys, receipts or extra change so you can save room for actual CUPS in your cupholder.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These were exactly what I needed to stop everything from always falling between my seats and console. It was beyond aggravating. This solves that problem! My phone fits well, and my sunglasses fit. There is plenty of room for other small loose items. I love that it was a two-pack." —Rose

    Price: $16.96

    11. A dash duster you can use for washing and waxing your exterior and removing all the dust mites from your air vents. Why get a car wash when you can clean your baby yourself?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This fits in the storage compartment in my car, between the seats, and I love being able to whip it out whenever the dust starts to show on my black dashboard." —MK AZ

    Price: $7.25

    12. A magnetic dashboard car mount so you won't have to get distracted on the road and possibly get a ticket for changing songs on Spotify.

    Amazon

    It works for smartphones, tablets, and GPS systems.

    Promising review: "We got this for my wife. We had been using a device that clipped onto the air vent, not ideal for the phone and her. This worked great, it is not covering the vent and it a better position to use as a GPS. My wife actually attached it to the iPhone case instead of the phone itself. It works great. I put the extra magnet on my phone. Liked it so much after a month of use, purchased one for my car also. Now my kids want one." —Doug W

    Price: $15.89 (available in three colors)

    13. A super sanitary trash can that'll strap to your center armrest, because you'd like to keep your whip nice and tidy at all times even if your friends dare to eat fast food on the way back from the club.

    Amazon

    It's leak-proof and provides side storage for more car essentials.

    Promising review: "This trash bin is the perfect size for my 2015 Toyota Corolla S and my needs. I'm usually driving by myself, but sometimes I have family and friends that are not so tidy with their trash and end up making it a scavenger hunt when I clean my car. This sits at the bottom and is tightly secured with the pull-cord around the center console, while still allowing for someone to sit in the middle back seat. It can hold enough trash for my small trips and is easy to dump and clean. The extra pockets are a nice feature to store small snacks and other miscellaneous items." —Mitchell

    Price: $14.99

    14. A sleek and modern two USB car charger to fit snugly into your cigarette lighter, because charging your dead mobile device is one of the main reasons you bought a car in the first place.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Nice looking charger. The metal housing makes it feel solid, not cheap like the plastic ones. Does what it's supposed to do." —Sweetlife

    Price: $12.99

    15. A set of all-season rubber floor mats so the floor of your vehicle doesn't get ruined by snow, salt, or whatever the weather (and your feet) may bring.

    amazon.com

    They're also equipped with anti-slip backing and won't curl, crack, or harden during cold weather. They can also be trimmed if they are too big for your car!

    Promising review: "This rubber turned out to be the perfect fit for the front seats of our Toyota SUV. No trim or adjustment necessary. I prefer these much more than the basic carpet mats that came with the vehicle. It looks and feels more durable, easier to clean, and better to protect the flooring from footwear dirt or other nastiness. The two back seat floor seat pieces are good fits, too." —Heavy Muscle

    Price: $33.29+ (available in three colors)

    16. A car vacuum that'll simply plug into your cigarette lighter and suck up all of the bits of food and fries that just happened to fall on the floor over time....

    Amazon

    Includes a filter, extension hose, brush attachment, and crevice attachment.

    Promising review: "This little vacuum packs a punch when it comes to cleaning your car. It's powerful enough to pick up pebbles, plywood splinters, leaves, and sand. Yeah, it's been a while since I cleaned my car. I used mostly the crevice wand because the suction was more defined. The brush was good for dash but seemed like it lost suction for rug cleaning. I took before and after because I wanted to be sure it worked well. Amazing!! Totally worth it!! Keep this baby in your car for quick cleanups on the go." —It'sJustMe

    Price: $21.99

    17. A Bluetooth car adapter to play all of your tunes on the daily commute to work, because your car is kinda old and doesn't have an auxiliary hookup, and what's better than being cord-free?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow that's all I can say about this. I have a wired FM transmitter and was worried about losing audio quality through Bluetooth but that's not the case here. It's easy to set up, works for music and audio calls, and also charges your phone at the same time so you're not losing your cigarette lighter or charging option. Everybody who needs something like this should at least try it out. I don't take mine in and out of the lighter so I have had no issues with durability." —Brotha Dave

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three colors)

    18. A wheel desk that'll be perfect for using your laptop after door-to-door consultations, or just eating in your car like a civilized human being during lunch time to avoid chatting with your co-workers.

    Amazon

    It just hooks right on your steering wheel, meaning it "installs" in literal seconds.

    Promising review: "I love this product. I like to eat lunch in my car to make a break from work and coworkers. This is perfect to allow neat, clean eating." —Daniella Serra

    Price: $11.99 (available in three colors)

    19. A net storage organizer to fit all of your groceries (neatly) in your trunk so you can have room (and then some) for car supplies and the food you'll wind up eating later.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great organizer! It has four nice sized, mesh pockets and two adjustable straps. The pockets can stretch a bit, allowing for bigger items to fit inside. I was able to fit my emergency road-side kit into one of the pockets, which is exactly what I was hoping for. The adjustable straps are very handy. Overall, I am pleased with the trunk organizer and would recommend it." —Amanda

    Price: $13.65

    20. An air-purifying bag for keeping the inside of your hooptie smelling fresh, eliminating smells before they marinate and become stale, thanks to its charcoal formula.

    Amazon

    Basically what I'm saying is it's ok if you farted, bruh.

    Promising review: "This stuff works. I farted up a storm in my car the other day just before exiting my vehicle. Typically, I could come back several hours later and it would have a stench of stale farts. Not this time! Upon returning to my car, it smelled quite divine." —Blackety

    Price: $9.85 (available in three scents)

    Your car is on it's way to being a modern day Mystery Machine!
