Six kids in a minivan. That’s what Dianne Palmer of Calgary buckles in every day. I asked her how she manages to keep the auto clean.

“Little trash bins in every row lined with old plastic shopping bags so the garbage comes out swiftly,” Palmer said. “The big Velcro patch keeps the bin tucked against the wall. If they don’t have garbage, they are stuffed with road toys.”

I bought the Diono Pop Up Trash Bin at Toys “R” Us on her recommendation and am impressed. The black bin comes flat and has clips to hold it flat until I need it. Release the clips and the sturdy wire coil encased in water resistant material pops up to be the size of a four-litre milk jug.

In my car, it’s the dog that needs organization. I plan to use the drawstring top to contain his toys and ratty blanket that protect the seats after a muddy mile.
