Making an Emergency Car Kit

Hey y'all! As soon as I got my first car, my mom had me put a small container of supplies in the trunk that would help me in any situation!
I'm going to help you create your very own emergency car kit, to ensure you that you will be okay under any circumstances!

My mom and I sat down and created a list of items that I could possibly need if I were anywhere away from home.  We were thinking about every possible situation, so we may have gone a little bit overboard, but safety first, I guess.
Here's pictures and descriptions of everything I have included in my own emergency car kit!

Band-Aids of all sizes, Gauze sponges, Antiseptic wash, Antibiotic Ointment, Cleansing wipes, Hair ties, Bobby pins, and Safety Pins. 

Instant hot and cold packs.

Headache medicine for emergencies.

More Antibacterial wipes for messes.

Plenty of trash bags (if you're like me). I like my car clean(:

 A flash light in case you break down, or just need it at any time.

Of course snacks, bottled water, a plastic cup, and mini spoons and forks..Never know when you're going to get stuck in traffic, brake down, or just be plain out hungry!

 Of course you always need your hair brush, lotion, perfume, and hand sanitizer!

Along with deodorant and an extra toothbrush (toothpaste and floss, too!)

Oh yeah! Once again, PLENTY OF TRASH BAGS

A change purse with change.. You never know when you'll have to cross a toll booth or pay to park.

Of course, more smell goods! I always have a supply of air fresheners!

 An umbrella for the rain.

An ice scraper for the snow and ice (so cute!)

 A cute neck pillow for your passengers on long rides, or even you if you are sitting in your car for a long while. (Mine massages!)

WD-40 (I just love the tiny can!)

 Extra Oil, Antifreeze, Windshield Wiper Fluid, Brake Fluid, and Starting Fluid in case you run out unexpectedly or brake down.

 All of my supplies fit nicely in one small, convenient container.

It all fits nicely inside my dirty trunk next to my emergency fishing pole(:

Of course there are other items you should keep in your car that I did not list, such as:
  • Blanket (Mine matches my puppy neck pillow)
  • Sweatshirt
  • Socks (I keep regular and fuzzy socks just in case I break down in the Winter, or simply just need socks)
  • Change of clothes
  • Gloves, scarf, and hat (Winter)
  • Extra shoes
  • Other medications that may be important to you
  • Emergency money
  • Jumper cables
  • Tools to change tires, fix whatever, etc...
  • Phone Charger
  • Pen and Paper
  • Multi-tool or a knife
  •  Paper Map (just in case)

All of these items can easily fit in your car. Using a small container has helped me to fit supplies in my car, along with the console, glove box, and a bag that goes under your seats.
It is always better to be prepared because you never know what is going to happen. Safety first!
