How to create a summer car kit
First, get container with a tight-fitting lid. Add things you think will be helpful. Here are some ideas.
First Aid Kit
If you don’t have a first aid kit, you can get a few items and put them in a little box or even a ziplock bag.
Hand sanitizer, band-aids, antibiotic ointment, and pain meds like acetaminophen or ibuprofen are a good start.
A few prepackaged cereal bars or trail mix are great in case you are running around and need a quick snack, or forgot to pack one. Be sure to check the expiration dates and keep in mind that it will get hot so don’t put anything that can melt.
Stashing a few dollars in the summer car kit is a good idea in case you have to grab a bottle of water from a store that doesn’t accept credit cards.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. What else would you add in your summer car kit?
