I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. I don't keep collars on any of them at home. Of course anytime we leave to go somewhere, be it locally or on a trip, they must have them. At those times they all have their collars on, from the time we leave home until the time we return.
I keep 2 sets for each of them. Each one (collar and leash) has the pet's name on it. I use craft paint because it never wears off. I keep one set in the house in my coat closet in a small bin up on the shelf. The other set goes in the car.
My car has little cubbyholes in the back (small station wagon type car), and I put them in there. In past cars, I kept them in the pocket that's behind the driver's seat. The set in the car is the one that has their rabies tags on them. This way, if I'm ever in a hurry and forget something, it won't be their collars and leashes!
In these same cubbyholes, I also keep collapsible water bags, food dishes, and one small toy for each pet.
Although it's not kept in the car, the cat always travels, whether locally or long distance, in a cat carrier.

We have two German Shepherds and have all sorts of leashes, accessories, etc. We have a desk organizer that we store leashes and collars in. Each drawer has the name of our pet and what's in them. This makes it exceptionally easy to head out the door with two dogs and a two year old in tow.

I have 3 dogs, a yellow lab, pitbull and German Shepherd. I bought a small expanable coat hanger with pegs on it and hung it by our back door. I hang the leashes there along with their harnesses for walking. If I take them for a walk or out in public, the harnesses and leashes are there by the back door. I just grab the harness and leash and they know we are going someplace!
