#1 Duct Tape

Duct tape is small and light so it's easy to keep in the trunk and can save you in a bind for situations like keeping your muffler attached temporarily.

Honestly, once you start carrying around duct tape you'll be surprised at all the applications it has. Did someone knock off one of your side mirrors? Duct tape will work as a temporary fix until you can get it repaired. Small tear in your upholstery? Seal it up with duct tape ASAP to keep it from growing larger.



#2 Fire Extinguisher

In an accident a fire extinguisher can help put out a small fire and prevent disaster. Having one of these in your car can seriously be a lifesaver; keep an eye on the expiration date and make sure the one you have is in working order.

Having this in your car can make you a hero in a lot of situations. If a kitchen fire breaks out at a friend's house and they don't have a fire extinguisher, you can run out to the car and grab yours. Seriously, the world would be so much safer if everyone went around with fire extinguishers in their trunks.



#3 WD-40

This popular lubricant can come in handy in a pinch, helping to loosen a bolt when changing a tire or doing just about any work on your car. It's also great for removing gunk and gum that may have gotten stuck to your car.

Let's face it, you probably have a can of WD-40 somewhere in your house already, right? You may as well just keep the can in your car; it's small, lightweight, and can be a real lifesaver in an emergency situation.


#4 Blankets

It's good to have a blanket to stay warm and comfortable in your car. This is especially important if you live in an area where it gets very cold during the Winter time; you never know when you might get stranded and have to spend the night in a broken-down car with no heater.

Even in non-emergency situation blankets can come in handy. Forgot to bring a jacket on a camping trip? Wrap yourself up in a blanket to stay warm. Friend wants to bring his muddy dog into your car? Put a blanket down on the seat to save your upholstery.


#5 Owner's Manual

This of course should be in the glove compartment, but just in case it's not, here's a reminder! The owner's manual can offer useful information about tasks such as changing a tire.

Keeping the owner's manual in the car will save you a lot of headaches down the road. This is particularly true when it comes to oil changes and repairs. Without the manual you are going to drive yourself crazy over little things like how to change the digital clock or set your radio presets; if you are buying a used car make sure there is a manual in the glovebox.


#6 Lug Wrench

If you get stuck with a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, your spare tire is going to be pretty useless without a lug wrench. Changing a tire is never fun but it's even less fun when you don't have a lug wrench and you're coming up with all sorts of crazy ideas to get those lugs off. Nothing else will work...trust us, we've tried.



#7 A Shovel

Your car could get stuck in all sorts of things such as snow and mud. A shovel is a great tool to have in your car all year round as you can use it to dig yourself out of a nasty situation.

It's better to have a 'spade' type shovel, one that is slightly sharp at the end and not flat. Always be cautious when digging your tires out, and never dig while someone is slamming on the gas, as this could lead to a serious injury.


#8 Spare Tire

If you get a flat tire and you don't have a spare...you won't be getting very far. It seems like common sense but you wouldn't believe how many people drive around without a spare tire. If you have some extra cash to throw around, buy an actual tire to replace your undersized donut and you will thank yourself later.

Here are a few things I feel that the list forgot: flashlight, particularly the LED ones.  A hammer that can break a window and has that blade to cut your seatbelt. Roadside flares, energy bars, water, kitty litter that has grit (if you live in an area that gets snow), jumper cables, first aid kit.  I think that is all.
