pimping my ride

We got some new wheels just recently.  Before you think I am being all showy offie about that, I should point out my last car was literally held together in parts by tape and glue.  We had pushed that old girl to the very edge yet I was still so sad to see her go.  So much so I made the kids stand in front of her for one last photo because I am SO ridiculously sentimental, even trading in a car gets me going. (Not all of them were enthused about the photo opp).

I was rambling on about how she’d  kept us safe all these years, taken us on some awesome adventures, brought babies home from hospital, taken toddlers and kids back to hospital, played host to a million games of Eye Spy, and almost as many arguments. I even welled up when I had to leave her at the car dealer’s. I mean, it’s just a car. Right?

Anyway, I digress.  In addition to being excited that my glovebox is no longer held together by washi tape, I am also looking forward to keeping my new car “nice”.

So it’s time to pimp my ride.  Keeping the car organised with a few basics can save a whole lotta last minute emergencies and stress.  I found this expandable storage box for less than $15 and, although it is not pretty it is very practical.

Here is what I have packed into it;

Office stuff:  Pens, pencils, ruler, scissors, tape, clips and a fab little storage system for receipts I collect on the run.

First aid stuff: Baby wipes (we will NEVER grow out of needing them!), Panadol, Band Aids, sunblock, antiseptic wash, tissues.

Back up stuff: Caps, water bottles and, as things cool down I will add jackets.

What have I missed?  What do you keep in your car?
