Car Essentials

Hello wonderful people, I hope you all are having a great day! I am sharing with you all a guide to everything you will need in your car. From survival items to fun accessories, I have you covered!

Masks and Gloves:

  • You never know when you are going to need a mask to wear to a store or if you forget one. It is always a good idea to keep a stack of them in your car.

  • Super handy to keep extra pairs of disposable gloves in your car to keep you safe.


  • You never know when you are going to need them for some watery eyes or a runny nose. It is always a great idea to come prepared and have access to them in your car!

Jumper Cables:

  • Definitely a necessity to have with you always for any situation.

First-Aid Kit:

  • You can either buy one or make your own. Keep extra bandages, ointment, and basically everything you need in case of an emergency.


  • For the bright, beautiful, and blinding sun.

Extra Pads and Tampons:

  • For the ladies out there, it is definitely a must-have to keep in your car, you never know when you are going to need an extra one or when a friend may need one.

Portable Phone Charger:

  • Make sure to get one compatible with your outlet so you can charge your phone throughout the day.


  • Keep a few extra water bottles in your car for emergencies.


  • Perfect for cold nights and of course emergencies.


  • Pack a few easy grab-and-go snacks such as granola bars. This comes in handy for long car rides.

Trash Bag:

  • Definitely keep one in your car in the back of your console. This is super helpful for long drives and anything you need to get rid of without creating a mess in your car.

Extra Cash:

  • It's always a great idea to keep an extra few dollars hidden in your car in case of emergencies.

License, Registration, and Insurance:

  • A true necessity to keep in your car at all times!

Car Fresheners:

  • A great item to have in your car for an all-around fresh-smelling car.

Hand and Car Wipes:

  • Keep hand wipes in your car for sticky hands and a quick clean.

  • Keep car wipes in your car for easy cleaning around your vehicle.


  • Keep a small flashlight in a compartment at all times for emergencies.

Ice Scraper/ Snowbrush:

  • If you live in an area that has a rough winter season as I do, this is a necessity to have in your car at all times.

Pen and Paper:

  • You never know when you are going to need something to write down important information on or write down some directions.


  • Keep these in the trunk of your car for easy access and tidying up.

Windshield Sunshade:

  • Keep the inside of your car protected and helps protect your vehicle from the hot sun.

Headrest Hooks:

  • Great for groceries and handbags to keep them off the floor and avoid sliding.

Smartphone Holder:

  • A great holder for your phone especially works best as a GPS.
