Summer Car Essentials

My Spring/Summer car essentials and organization + how I keep my car super cozy

You guys!! Its finally starting to get warm enough outside for the girls and I to go out. So I love my car. I feel like it’s a second home and I love to keep it clean and organized. I also love making sure that I always have the things I might need. Because my car is totally my second home.

I love having a cozy car because it’s more enjoyable to drive in my opinion. I got this adorable flower vase for my car and its so amazing!

I also like to keep my car smelling nice, so I use this incredible freshener from bath and body works. 
During the Spring and Summer, the girls and I are always out on adventures. Every year, we are able to go new places and do new things. Over the years I have learned the items that we need the most and this year I finally created a car kit for the warmer months. I am just starting to put it together and don’t have everything I need just yet.
The girls and I like to spend our time having picnics, going to the park, going for walks either through town or on trails, going to the pool, hanging with friends, being out late at night, etc. I’m almost finished putting together the ultimate essentials kit for us.
I’m also making it very affordable because while I will use these products a bit, I will probably be replacing them every season. Not sure how I long I will keep everything but I will most likely upgrade things as the kids grow.
First things first, the container. It took me a while to find one that I liked. At first I thought of just a plastic container with a lid. And then I checked out all of the containers at the craft stores. But it was at The Dollar Tree where I found the right one for me.

Here are the things that I keep in there:

Vinyl Tablecloth
Lysol Disinfectant
Band Aids
Bug Spray
Sun Screen
Flushable wipes
Bottles of Water

I also love to keep books in the car for the kids to read! National Geographic has awesome books at the Dollar Store. These are books that I have picked up for the girls as Easter basket gifts or stocking stuffers and I thought these would be perfect to keep in the car. Now the girls are able to read and tell me random animal facts while i’m driving them around town.

Here’s a wishlist of other random items that I would keep in my car. Am I forgetting anything? Let me know in the comments!

    I often keep perfumes and a small box of chocolate in my car. It sounds weird but I love the combo during summer!
