My Car Box

Every person in my family has a car box. I think it was really started by my grandfather but who knows. He and my grandmother do so much training that his car box is in a milk crate. Technically I have two cases. The first case is one of those pre-made, buy off the shelf things. This was bought for my and I think it has all the things like flares, emergency flares, ect. The one I put together is my smaller.

In my personally assembled case I have the following:

  • Huggies wipes 40 ct. Have you ever compared the price of wet wipes to diaper wipes? The small packs of Wet Wipes (15-20ct) are almost $2 each. That is about $4 to get to 40 wipes. The Huggies were only $2 for the 40 ct pack. Plus if it’s good enough for baby body it’s good enough for me 🙂
  • Facial Tissues. The small little packs are great for little things like nose bleeds, pressure pads (not the best option but a good one), or just blowing your nose. The Target 4 pack cost me a whole $1. The Kleenex brand was going to cost me $2-$3.
  • Flash light. You never know when you are going to need one. They are great for looking at engines in the dark, keeping you company on the side of the road at night, blinding the bad guys (it’s an LED flash light), ect. I don’t remember how much I paid for this. I think we might have gotten it for free at Harbor Freight with my Hubby; I am going to guess $3 though.
  • Sunscreen. I like having sunscreen around just in case. It’s a great lubricant for nuts and bolts, keeping from going lobster red on the side of the road in summer or during the impromptu stops to go hiking. I think I paid $3 for this during the height of the season last year. I try to buy things like this on clearance.
  • Hand Sanitizer.  It’s great for cleaning your hands after lunches, dog park, ect. You never know what you will end up touching on trips so having a quick way to get clean with out making trash so it’s great for having on hand. You can get a 4 pack for a $1 at the Dollar Tree.
  • Small first aid kit. It’s just the basics Band-aids ect. But very useful with people and dogs around. Both and get hurt and need a quick way to keep the wound closed and “clean”. I think I paid $2 for this at Target last year.

Car Box ContentsThe best part is that all my items fit inside a small plastic container; a little larger than a full size diaper wipe case. I bought this for a $1 at the Dollar Tree.

All my items are useful to me and any occupants. You could also add bottled water and snacks to it but I don’t like having those things go through the whole heat cycling that goes in a car.

My box cost me a grand total of: $12 and will last me for a while. I also have a roll of dog poop bags in my car. These are great for the the obvious reason but also are great for trash bags on the fly.

Do you have a car box or something similar? If so, what do you keep in it?
