Lets go inside and check it out. Stacey Platt: Lets do it. Lesley Nagy: Car looks pretty clean already. Stacey Platt: It is well this is a well organized car. And a well stuffed glove compartment is a great starting off point. So you always want to have your car registration materials in the car, your registration, proof of insurance, owners manual, so you can demystify those squashing dashboard symbols and a few other great things to have are wet wipes you know to wipe out sticky fingers or your own hands after pumping at the gas pump and this little case has three really important things. Pen is always critical. Lesley Nagy: Why. Stacey Platt: Well if you ever, you got for being to get an accident, you need to take down information, sometimes if your cell phone doesn't work or why not its always great to have a pen for backup. A flashlight is critical, but most people do carry a flashlight in their glove box but most don't work, I would say 80% are out of batteries. The most important thing I recommend keeping in the car is a crankable flashlight. See you crank this, if you crank it for one minute you get about 20 minutes of light and -- . Lesley Nagy: So it's really good for emergencies. Stacey Platt: That's right, you never have to worry about replacing the batteries in your flashlight, and you'll always have it for emergencies. So this is great if you're somebody who uses your car lock for work and constantly traveling to see clients, this is a great thing to have on your front seat or your back seat to just hold all the things you need. Wind brush, water bottle or your files. Lesley Nagy: Laptop yeah. Stacey Platt: Laptop and if you're a mom on the go busy carpooling this is also great. Kids are in the back this is in the front, it has everything you need to stay organized well you're doing your carpooling. Lesley Nagy: And how much will these cost about. Stacey Platt: These are, I want to say about $25 of the top of my head. Lesley Nagy: Not too bad. Stacey Platt: Not too bad. Lesley Nagy: Wow , this is a neat trunk. Stacey Platt: Yes, thanks to the trunk organizers. I love these because they not only contain things, they help to keep things up right in your trunk, so you go round the short bend your eggs, milk nothing is going to spill out. Lesley Nagy: Everyone is so busy, and you know what's the biggest advice you can give to help us all keep our cars organized? Stacey Platt: Well like I said before take how way you bring in, and also the car is just like any other, organizing any other part of your house, so you want to like things together, you want to keep things contained that's a biggie. Keep things up of the floor and there is any number of organizing products on the market now that help you do that. Lesley Nagy: Well thank you so much we loved your tips.
