If you are taking a last-minute trip to the store--you're not alone.

You can't fight the weather, but you can make life easier with a few tools. The first things in the stores to go involve making walking and driving easier.

One of the most popular items seemed to be ice melt. It's easy to spread and makes leaving your house a lot easier. But don't worry, there's still plenty left because most stores get regular shipments.

"Ice melt definitely. We sell out of shovels like that and we sell the little car utensils so people come in to buy that a lot," said Ashley Rowley of Lowes.

She's referring to ice scrapers, but you can also use windshield washer fluid to melt the ice on your windshield. Ice melt itself costs a little over $8.
