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.
