Rug Pad as Trunk Liner [Real Simple]


    I did this about six weeks ago, not even thinking it was worth sharing with other people. It does work well. My groceries have a far less ballistic trip home from the shop and there is no alarming banging coming from the boot anymore. I got a roll from Kmart for about $12 which gave me one and a half 50cm wide strips across my rather large Camry boot. I had priced dedicated boot liners and they are ridiculously expensive - $60+!
