The title goes in a safe place at home.
The registration can go either in you purse or wallet, or in the glove box. It's immediate proof of ownership for the driver in the case of an accident or moving violation. You also have to have a valid registration card and proof of insurance to get the annual safety inspection. You can get the inspection done 2 months prior to expiration, ie March and April for a May sticker. Inspection should run concurrent with registration, you usually get screwed out of a few months the first time around.
The little sticker goes in one of corners of the license plate. Don't screw it up, you don't get a second chance. My plate has a small dimple in the corner, but it's more than a few years old. It has to be visible on the plate.
