Have you ever stopped or even been stranded in your car somewhere, and thought “If only I had…”? Us, too! That’s why we’ve put together a concise list of 20 practical things you should always keep on hand for your convenience and in case of an emergency. Here they are:

First Aid kit tool for basic care:

  • Jump cables to restart your car or another person’s car.
  • Multi-purpose cleaner for messes and spills
  • Napkins and paper towels
  • Multi-use too kit (pocket knife, screw driver, etc)
  • Microfiber towels, ideal because they’re reusable
  • Duct-tape. Really, there are countless stories of duct-tape saving people’s cars
  • Your car’s manual…which should always be in your glove compartment!
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Instant food or energy bars in case you’re stranded
  • Paper maps, in case your phone loses signal or dies.
  • Thermal blanket in case of a storm or blizzard
  • Cardboard or carpet to give your car traction if you’re stuck in mud or snow.
  • Mobile phone/device charger
  • Change of clothes
  • Water bottles
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Road flares
  • Rain coat
  • Hand Sanitizer

Chances are, you have some of these items in your car already, and most are small and can easily fit into your car’s trunk. Keeping a small “emergency” kit isn’t just for emergencies, it can also make daily life easier, especially if you commute to work daily, have children, use your car for driving services like Uber, or need to make a quick fix that can be solved with something as simple as duct-tape, which can save you money and time if you’re on the go. It’s an easy way to keep yourself feeling comfortable and safe while you’re out on the road.
