Must Have Easy Mom Hack - Car Kit for on the Go

Our car kit is something I put together back when McKinlee was born.  I would constantly find myself out and about missing one or two things I desperately needed.  We go on adventures often, and need all.the.things but don't want to pack them all in my diaper bag (or now purse - yay potty trained kids!).  I would find us out and about on a cloudy day that suddenly turned sunny.  We didn't have sunscreen!  The girls would have an accident and I wouldn't have underwear with us.  Or, they would scrape their knee and need a bandaid.  I keep our car kit in the trunk of my car and update it often.  We also keep a roll of paper towels and a few dish clothes there too.  I also always keep a few water bottles just in case.

Our car kit has come in handy more times than I can count!  I feel pretty prepared when I'm out and about with the kids and I don't have to stress out in the mornings.  I have everything I need ready to go thanks to our must have easy mom hack.  We'll typically refill this once a month to make sure we have everything we need.  Since I carry a smaller bag, this has come in so handy especially now!

What is in Our Car Kit?

In our car kit, I keep the following:

  • First aid kit - bandaids, antiseptic cream, antibacterial hand spray)
  • Perishable snacks
  • Hair kit - clips, bows, comb, brush, and hair ties.  I can't count how many times the girls hair has come out and we've needed a clip to keep their hair out of their face!
  • Sunscreen
  • Stain remover
  • Extra undies
  • Baby wipes and wet wipes
  • Medication (advil, childrens tylenol, stomach medication)
  • Reusable water bottles
  • Sunglasses
  • Lint roller
  • Dog bags (for tying up soiled clothing if the girls have an accident)
