Always (Over)Prepared

Daily adventures don’t always allow for the prior notice needed for actual preparation.  You never know when a great opportunity will pop up and it’d be a shame to say no because you don’t have what you need!  Be ready for any adventure with your very own car kit.

A large majority of my time this summer is spent driving between jobs.  Neither of which happen to be close enough to run home if I forgot something, so one might say I got a little over zealous about being prepared.  Introducing, the car kit!  A revolutionary (in my opinion anyway) way to never be unprepared ever again.  Seriously, we’re only halfway through summer and I can’t even count the number of times this bag has saved my day.  I would sincerely suggest putting together even a small bag, just in case your car ever gets stuck or you’re in a bind.  My car kit is tailored to fit the needs of my two jobs, but you can adjust however you see fit to get the most out of your over preparedness.



  • Tennis shoes
  • Hiking Boots
  • Water Shoes
  • Long and short hiking socks

Skin Protection

  • Sunscreen (spray and regular)
  • Bugspray
  • Baseball hat
  • Floppy hat

Just in Case

  • Swimsuit
  • Granola bars
  • Water bottle
  • Bandaids
  • Extra shorts and shirt
  • Old Towel
  • Work gloves

And that’s it!  I use an extra large 31 tote because the rectangular shape simplifies packing, plus clean up is super easy when I make a mess.  I also invested in a insert with pockets to make organization easier.  My car kit will be updated as seasons change and I have different things going on, but it’s definitely proving to be a life saver so far.  Get your own car kit started today!
