In the back seat, you'll want to Stretch Your Dollar by packing your own snacks but keep your items cold for up to 6 hours with this bag called the "Pack It" grocery bag.
Also, in the middle seat you can keep the floor boards clear with the backseat organizer. This handy catch-all keeps items within reach and the strap buckles over a head rest. The price $15.99.
To pack food for kids you can reuse your plastic containers and organize snacks and lunch.
Also, create your own first aid kit by reusing a baby wipes bin.
