One simple way to keep your car clean is to cut scraps of old carpet to fit on the floor as mats.  We found our carpet scraps for less than $2 at Home Depot. And when the DIY carpet scraps inevitably get all dirty with mushy winter snow or summer sand, you could either give them a wash, or toss them out and make more.

A word of caution, do not put these DIY car mats on the drivers side of the car unless grippers are attached on the bottom side to ensure that the mat does not slip forward while driving.
