Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about the best infant car seats, the best dash cams, and the best organizers for your apartment, here we’re investigating the best organizers for the trunk of your car, on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best covered trunk organizer

Fortem Car Trunk Organizer for SUV Truck With Bonus Waterproof Cover
$24 at Amazon

“I was searching for a sturdy trunk organizer and I am glad I found this one! I cannot get over its excellent construction. I have burned through about five different types of trunk organizers before this one. It is very strong, and I admire that it has clips on all four sides to adjust the length of it to fit in a variety of places. I keep many essentials in my van for those emergencies that always arise when you are out and about. This was such a great buy, and at a great price. Hands down, the best organizer I’ve had!! This one will last for years.”

Best collapsible trunk organizer

Trunkcratepro Collapsible Portable Multi Compartments Trunk Organizer
$40 at Amazon

“I bought this collapsible crate to replace one that had saggy sides and didn’t hold much of anything. I am so impressed with it! It folds flat and clips into place if you need to keep it hidden away for later storage. Or, you can also close off one side, keep both sides open, or make smaller compartments. The bottom is made of a durable vinyl-type material that will withstand moisture and other car gunk. The sides are strong. The handles are large enough to easily handle the weight of a full or empty crate. Don’t cheap out — this is worth it!”

Best no-skid trunk organizer

Higher Gear Products Car Trunk Organizer | 2 Interior Compartments + Mesh Pocket, Rigid Fold Down Bottom, No Slip Feet
$25 at Amazon

“Very sturdy and substantial with no stitching or other construction issues. I would say it’s close to a plastic bin in strength and capacity with the convenience of being collapsible, easy to carry, and not too high for a shallow car trunk. Rubber gripper feet on the bottom minimizes sliding. Very roomy, two large compartments, nice reflective strip, which could come in handy if moving things in the dark around a campsite or RV park.”

Best portable trunk organizer

OxGord Auto Trunk Storage Organizer Bin with Pockets — Portable Cargo Carrier Caddy
$13 at Amazon

“Bought this for my wife to use in her trunk for storage. MUCH BETTER than I thought it would be. She absolutely loves this foldable bin. She loves the quality and sturdiness that lets her pack it with groceries and then, using the two side handles, cart it all into the house at once: It has become her ‘go to’ shopping cart, so to speak. Had it for a couple of months and it’s holding up very well under constant and heavy use.”

Best hanging trunk organizer

YoGi Prime Trunk and Backseat car Organizer
$25 at Amazon

“The YoGi Backseat Organizer has seriously saved my sanity! I have three kids who all need to sit in the back of the car, which leaves me with next to no space for groceries in our small SUV. This Backseat Organizer has given me so much more space! The pockets hold so much! I can get most of my weekly groceries in them with ease! Even better, the smallest pocket perfectly fits two bottles of wine! This backseat organizer has saved my sanity in more ways than one! I absolutely love it!!””

Best SUV trunk organizer

Car Trunk Organizer by Starling’s Eco-Friendly, Super Strong & Durable, Collapsible, Anti-slip/Waterproof Bottom With Bungee Cords Pair
$42 at Amazon

“Driving an SUV, I have a few necessities (first-aid kit, tools, towels and cleaners, etc.) in the back that are now secured instead of rolling around. That is what I use one side for. The other I use for day-trip items or small purchases. Having a place for items I used to just toss in the back has proven to be a great convenience. The back of my vehicle is now easily organized. I have not found a need to tie it down, but it could be if you wanted to. For me, the size is perfect, and it can be carried or moved out of the way with very little effort.”

Best trunk organizer with waterproof bottom

Autoark Multipurpose Car SUV Trunk Organizer, Waterproof Bottom With Velcro Strips to Prevent Sliding
$22 at Amazon

“The back of my small SUV began looking like a junkyard, so it was necessary to do something. I bought a couple of trays for lunches in the car and we keep jackets in the car for when we get cold. Add in a small toolbox and a pair of binoculars along with the booster seat for our granddaughter, and you have a messy car. The booster seat doesn’t fit, but everything else does; it also allows me to put groceries in it so they don’t tip over. The side pockets are handy for small items. It made my messy car look much better and holds everything I need.”

Best trunk organizer with cooler

Untimate Car Trunk Organizer With Premium Insulation Cooler Bag, 12 Pockets, Adjustable Compartment
$38 at Amazon

“This is a great organizer. I sprayed the outside with Scotchgard and put the organizer in the bed of my truck. It has a lot of compartments, a nice Velcro to separate the end tote area. The cooler area is good for about six hours with ice, but expect some moisture at the bottom of this. There are hooks to hold against the edge of the truck bed or if you sit it on a car seat, you can hook it up to not slide off. Lastly, it folds up great with quality clips. If you are an outdoors type person … this might be your best pick.”

Best strap-in trunk organizer

Drive Auto Products Car Trunk Storage Organizer With Straps, 1-Pack
$24 at Amazon

“I love this thing. It is super well-made and fits A TON of stuff. I’m using it basically as an emergency kit. I was able to fit literally anything I need in the event of an emergency, including a change of clothes (with shoes), toiletries, a blanket, makeup, snacks, and I still have room to toss shopping bags in while I’m out, so they don’t roll around in my trunk.”
