It never fails that I forget something when I go out with the kids. I am constantly looking for bandaids, gum, water bottles, and other things when I am in my car only to realize that I left them at home by accident. After doing this a million times, I decided that it was time to create a “Just in Case Car Kit.”
So this is how I put my car kit together….
- First, I ran out and grabbed a little plastic bin. It was only a dollar! Trust me, you won’t break the bank with this project. Everything in the bin was cheap!
- I printed out this cute “Just in case Car Kit” printable and taped it to the front of the bin. Depending on what type of bin you buy, you can always tape it to the lid or wherever you would like on the bin. Note: when you print it out it is 4.5″ by 4.5″ so that might help you decide what size bin you want to get.
I created this to give to you! It’s a free printable which means you can download it, print it, and use it for free! Download your “Just in case Car Kit” printable here.
- Next I filled my car kit!
This is what I filled my car kit with:
- Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice®
I LOVE gum and when I am out and about I always need something to freshen my breath. I find myself digging around looking for the gum in the cup holders and my purse, all while I am driving. It’s a little unsafe. BUT with the new Extra® 35 stick pack in my car kit, I never have to search for gum again! Learn more about this brand here. You can get this at Walgreens and it is cheap! Plus it comes in a nice carrying case so the sticks of gum won’t spill all over the car kit. I love it!This is where I found it at Walgreens…
I bought both Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® and I am putting one in my car kit and giving one to my mom. It’s all about the Give Extra, Get Extra campaign!
- A flashlight
Because you just never know, right?!
- An empty water bottle
Someone once suggested this to me when I was at the park and forgot water. I kept having to lug the kids way over to the bathroom area to get water from the drinking fountain. My friend said, “too bad you don’t have an empty water bottle in your car so you can just fill that up with water.” Brilliant! That is why I added an empty water bottle to the car kit.
- Boogies Wipes AND tissues
We need both because I have toddlers. Enough said.
Just be careful if you live in a warm area- it will melt all over your car kit!
We have a saying in our family, “No blood, no bandaid.” So even though the majority of ouchies are non-bandaid necessary, I still like to have extras on hand.
- Headache Medicine
- Hand Sanitizer
And there you have it! A “Just in case Car Kit.”
Here is a little video of what we put in our car kit….
So, when you make your car kit what will you add to it?
