Practical car emergency pack
I put together a car emergency kit together for myself and came to the conclusion that I need to make this for others.
I’m planning to give my niece one when we celebrate Christmas tomorrow, among other things. When I was a teenager, I remember going to the Des Moines airport to pick someone up, but they were not there right away, so I parked & found out their flight was delayed. I had no idea I would need cash to get out of the parking lot and was looking for lose change in my car, when a kind stranger gave me money I needed to get out. They were an angel to me that day and I will honestly never forget their kindness for asking me what was wrong. I’ve included quarters for my car emergency kits!
For my kit, I still include a change of clothes in a gallon ziplock bag for the kids. I never expect a bathroom accident, but I’m always so thankful I have it in the car for when they do, because they have! To my complete and utter shock.
I also need to include extra pairs of socks, because we have had to purchase socks for ridiculous prices when they haven’t had them at play areas/events requiring socks.
Here is what I included in my niece’s pack.
-2 water bottles
-2 granola bars
-quarters for parking ($5)
It’d probably be good to throw in a multi tool, but this is all pretty much things I had around the house (besides the thermal blankets). The pain medicine is expired stuff I had in my medicine cabinet, but it’ll likely still do the trick in a predicament. I wonder if the water bottles will break if they freeze, since they are completely full. What do you think? They live in Kansas, so a little warmer there.
