Emergency Bag for Car Trips

Every time my friend and I go on a trip in her car, we need something and don't have it. So today, I made a kit for all the stuff we have needed. It doesn't have everything, but it does have the things we have needed over the last few trips. In ours there is:

  • 2 snack bars
  • toothbrush and paste
  • hair clips
  • folding brush
  • nail clippers
  • Ice Breaker breath mints
  • Tums
  • pain relievers
  • "tummy" meds
  • eye drops
  • tissues
  • bandages
  • sewing kit/safety pins
  • scissors
  • tape, pens, and highlighter
  • paperclips
  • note pad
  • $10.00 in quarters for parking, gas, etc.
Yours can hold what you need.

Thanks for that great tip! I've always kept one of those cheap pencil boxes that go on sale at back to school time in my vehicle with feminine pads, deodorant and other toiletries, as well as an extra hair tie. That type of box is usually short enough to fit under the car seat, and keeps the items from getting crushed.

I use adaptions to this idea for work. Having worked in temp office positions for several years, I have found that having basics in a bag to go with me when changing jobs is very helpful. Purchases at a thrift store (extra hole punch, envelope opener, etc.) can be very handy and helps me to be more efficient.
