Warm Clothes and Winter Gear
Weather during the winter can be erratic. When you leave your home to head to work, the weather may only be cool; however, it can turn bitterly cold in a short amount of time. Therefore, keeping a snow cap, scarf, gloves, and extra clothing is highly beneficial. Keep these winter staples in a waterproof tote in your trunk, so you have them when you need them.
Always keep a blanket in your car because you never know when you will need one. Blankets are ideal for picnics if you need to lay on the ground to get under your car or simply help prevent a mess. Additionally, keeping a blanket in your car will help you keep warm in a snowstorm if your car breaks down.
If your car breaks down, you may need to get down on the ground to inspect or make a temporary repair. Likewise, when a tire goes flat, or you need to install tire chains, you will also contact the ground. In such cases, a waterproof tarp is ideal.
