We all know that owning a car is a lot of responsibility. So keeping everyone (including yourself) safe is one of those responsibilities. You need to make sure you have these top five items in your car at all times. These days you never know what can happen.
1. First, is the emergency kit
These kits come with items such as a flashlight, jumper cables, emergency flares, a first aid kit, etc. You can make your kit or buy one for around $50 at any auto store. Keeping the kit in the trunk is the best place to put it, so you know exactly where it is at all times.
2. Spare tire in the trunk
Don’t get stuck with a flat. Nowadays most cars have a hidden compartment for a spare tire, don’t keep anything else in there but a tire. Plus it will save you a lot of money if you have a spare tire or else you will have to have the car towed. Also, make sure you know how to change a tire too.
3. Owner manual
This book should be kept in the compartment at all times. This is your go-to guide for your vehicle. Check this book when you might have a maintenance problem that should arise while you’re on the road.
4. Jumper cables
Always have a set of jumper cables in your car, you never know what could happen to your car or someone you know might need a jump. Being prepared is better than sitting in your car waiting for the tow truck or someone who has jumper cables.
5. Disaster/comfort kit
Depending on where you live you could find yourself in some extreme weather situations or other dangerous circumstances, so you want to be prepared. Extra batteries, extra phone chargers, bottled water, blanket, snacks, radio, tools, and things to keep you busy like games. Also keep in mind winter too so maybe another box with an ice scraper, cat litter for the tires, and small snow shovel.
Most of these items in your car can be placed in containers you get from the dollar store. They don’t take up a lot of room but can be neatly organized in your car, or trunk. Be sure to check the items regularly, and replace them when needed.
