Have you ever thought about what exactly you have in your car as far as essentials? Your idea of emergency kits and necessities may need a refresh and some new additions.


Tissues and Wipes: Even if you don’t have kids, having wipes ready can help quickly clean up drink spills, cleaning off sunglasses, or messes from the kiddos.  Also, consider having a large clean rag in the trunk. If a flat tire or oil leak occurs, it would be easy to clean off your hands.

Extra Phone Chargers: Who doesn’t need more phone chargers throughout the day? Be sure to put an extra car charger or extra battery accessories in the glove compartment.  This could be a big saver if you need to call for help.

Umbrella: Because who knows when it will start raining.

Recycled Shopping Bags: These bags could help with those impromptu shopping trips.

Piece of Cardboard: In case you get stuck, this small trick of putting the piece of cardboard under one tire can make a difference.

Emergency Money:  Keep it handy in the glove compartment in case of emergency for gas money, or a tow.

Blanket:  It doesn’t have to be just for emergencies to help keep warm, but also for fun trips to the park.


These are just some ideas to consider keeping for those surprise moments. And as they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
