Introduction
Our product is the Clean Console and it is an organizer for a car. Considering we had to make an organizer for the company Acme, we made a unique one that holds sunglasses, phones, money, and other small items. The overall problem we were trying to solve was to help the Acme Company from going out of business, which would have an effect on the town. People are now buying movies electronically and there is no need for the Acme DVD organizers.

Our product is a car console organizer and it comes in many sizes and colors. Our easy to use product also is light and portable. The product contains many multi-sized compartments for phones, money, and sunglasses. There is also a secret compartment that has an easy access.

In all, my group’s product costed $53.31 which is a great price for our product.
