Default Trunk Storage solutions

What are you guys using?

I generally keep my trunk completely empty but on occasion I may go to Target or Wal-Mart and buy a bunch of stuff I need to transport home. I don't want everything rolling around in the trunk.

I was thinking of a folding organizer bin such as this:




Then when not in use I could store it behind the back seat with this cargo net:




I'd like to get some more ideas.

I just have a large shallow cardboard box found in the Costco recycling bin with a bungee cord from on side from the other. The hooks pop out of the side carpet trunk trim. The box has some big holes in it probably to help fruits of veggies inside it to breathe to I bungee hooked another cord to that to the same hooks on the side I want the box to stay on if I drive hard. Itís not glorious but it works!! I have lanyards hanging from the ceiling of the trunk so I can connect light bags to them to keep them from slamming into the sideboards. LOL

How about this? I think there is an OE solution similar to this as well.

I have grocery hooks on the roof of the trunk. Attach bags, drive at normal speed with no issue.

I assume your hooks are similar?
