When it comes to needing something while on-the-go, I can almost count on having it in my car, whether it’s a simple floss pick, napkin, straw, band-aid, or umbrella. My husband on the other hand, has the bare essentials in his vehicle, I’m talking registration, gas, and of course his chapstick…he can’t go anywhere without his chapstick.
He’s not one to use an umbrella, so of course when I got stuck with his truck a few weekends ago it started to downpour and there was no umbrella anywhere to be found. I knew I put one in there years ago, but after searching high and low, there was no umbrella – leaving me to get soaked walking into the store.
8 Things I Always Keep In The Car:
- Glove Box:
- Extra plastic utensils/straws
- Center console:
- Phone charger
- Fingernail clippers/floss picks
- Reusable bags – for the grocery store or farmer’s market
- First Aid Kit
- Umbrella – my car has an “umbrella” area on the side door
