Problems with stuff in the back.

I am hoping this has already been addressed. I am looking for a solution for how to keep stuff from flying around in the trunk when going around a corner. I generally have a laptop, bag of books, ice scraper etc. I have to really be mindful of corners currently (which is no fun at all).
Anyone have a method to secure stuff that is fast and easy?
Thanks

Ya. I even got a price for a custom harness with LOTS of velcro. But b4 I went that route thought I would ask to see if anyone already had a solution.

Ice scraper goes in the glove box.

Put the books on the floor behind the front seats so they only move in between the back of the front seat and the back seat.

VW's have velcro L's that I use. My sister gave them to me after she got rid of her Bug.
