Grab some special-sized trash bags for seamless cleanup or I’ve found plastic grocery bags to work just as well – either way, the snaps on each side will keep any bag in place. Best of all, when you’re not using it, it folds flat for convenient, easy storage between your seats.


2. Keep your bags from falling on the floor the next time you hit the breaks thanks to these universal hooks.

Better yet, this two-pack of universal hooks even comes with one meant for holding your phone (perfect for keeping little ones entertained) or you could even use it for all the face masks you may be toting around. It doesn’t get much more versatile than that! 🙌🏻

Hip Tip: If you love toting stuff around in reusable bags, this canvas tote bag is our team’s favorite, and personalizing it is FREE!

    I usually start thinking about next Christmas right after the first of the year but this will make a great stocking stuffer so I’m grabbing some now..

  2. Peaches

    Sorry, I was referring to the Saucemoto.

    • PrincessMom

      I was thinking the same thing!! Would be great paired with a gift card for a fast food place 😉

  3. Angie

    Love this post! Thank you.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome, Angie! Glad you are loving this list!

  4. MW

    My teenage daughter saw Saucemoto on Tik Tok and got it for me for Christmas. It’s awesome!

  5. jillmur

    So… the Pop Socket holder is amazing to put on your dash to hold all your extra masks. It keeps them right by my glove box to grab before we go!

    My husband got me the steering wheel desk last year. I was a bit skeptical, but wow oh wow! It was a game changer! I worked for an online company from home. My boys school’s parking lot/ pick up system can get so crazy and busy. I ended up sitting in the parking lot or parking along the street close to the school for like a hour+ before they got out. With the steering wheel desk, I was able to get an hours worth of work done while waiting for my kids. I used to kid around with my colleagues that I was working out of my “mobile office”. It also helped that my car has mobile WiFi! Now that we are virtual learning, my boys use the desk as a hard surface to write on in their lap. So even though my mobile office isn’t being used at this moment, the desk has other purposes!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! Thanks for taking a moment to share your experience, Kay! Happy the desk has been so useful!

  7. Marie

    The wheel desk looks amazing – during times like these where we’re avoiding indoor dining, this is great for grabbing takeout and eating in the car!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      What a great idea! Good to know it has been useful for takeout! Thanks for commenting!

  8. Jen

    I just know that I would end up with dip *inside* my vents! 😂

  9. Impactbrianna

    We take a 21 hour road trip twice a year; these are great! I just ordered the between the seat organizers for the back seat of my van, as well as the collapsible trash can. We’ve been using grocery bags, but I like having an extra layer of protection since we eat in the car multiple times on the trip.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh awesome! Glad you could snag some items for your trip! Hope you love them! 🎉💞

  10. Laurie

    I love my universal hook for my purse and umbrella. I’ve been using it for 3 years and its great at keeping my purse off the floor and in easy reach.

  11. Jenn G

    I have the hooks and I love them! But that sauce cup holder is AWESOME! Ordering a few for Christmas gifts (great idea above to pair with a gift card for a fast food place!). Thanks H2S!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      What a fun idea on pairing a fast food gift card with the sauce holders! And a great way to plan ahead as well!

  12. Maurice

    A dip clip??? No way!!

  13. Michele

    I bought 6 sauce motor. They do not work in my car. The way my vents are they just fall off. I was really disappointed 😞 I thought they would be great. I have a 2014 Toyota rat 4
