If you’ve been driving for a couple of years, naturally your car becomes your second home. It’s seen the bad times like when you got that flat tire before your job interview and the good times like when went through the drive through and had your dinner in the car with a friend. All in all, because it’s your second home, there are some things you should always keep in your car…just in case!
It should be in your glove compartment at all times. It’s full of information and images that you’ll need in a car emergency.
What’s worse than having a dead battery? A dead battery with no jumper cables! You can help yourself start your car or help someone else if their battery dies.
You never know if you’ll have to spend a night in your car or even if you’ll have to drive a friend home after a long night. Either way, a blanket is always comfortable.
A change of clothes
It doesn’t have to be a full change of clothes. Maybe an extra shirt or top just in case you spill something, have to change a tire in the rain, etc.
It’s one of those things you should have everywhere.
First aid kit
Again, in times of emergency, it’s best to be prepared for any and everything!
Water is life so it’s best to keep some handy in your car.
We’re not talking a large amount but some loose change is good to have in your car in case you’re short, need coins, have to tip someone, the list goes on and on.
Tire changing supplies
Even if you don’t know how to change a tire, at least you’ll be prepared! A spare tire, tire iron, lug wrench, tire jack and some WD-40 are all you need.
A car-adapted phone charger
We live in the digital age so let’s not pretend like it’s not a tragedy when our phone dies. Car chargers = life savers!
The trusty umbrella. Always overlooked but always needed!
These are one of those things that you will always use. Whether it’s cleaning a spill, wiping your windscreen, cleaning your hands, it’s always good to have a roll in the car.
