You think you're keeping your kids safe every time you buckle them into their car seat. But, that may not be the case.

According to the 2013 booster evaluations just released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, you're giving your kids either a "best," "good," or the dreaded "not recommended" car seat.

The good news is that you don't need to spend upwards of $300 to keep them safe. Many "best bet" models come in all price ranges.

At Target, the Graco Turbo Booster runs between $45 and $50 while Evenflo Big Kid models runs between $40 and $60.

If you do want to spend the big bucks, you can pick up a Clek Oobr for around $200. Many of the Recaro models run close to $300.

The two models that are "not recommended" were the Safety 1st All-in-One and the Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite.
