    I would also include a granola bar. Something healthy to snack on when your out an about, so you won’t be tempted with fast food.

    I would, but Florida gets so hot that any liquid in a bottle will explode EVERYWHERE! I had my chapstick once in the car and when I opened the cap as I was driving it POURED out and stuck to my bare thigh like candle wax and immediately set up. Oh it was horrendous! I have a purse kit like this one that was it comes with me into the air conditioned stores/home/etc. 🙂

    I drive a lot each and every day, and a few necessary items are:

    – a few granola bars! – for yourself if you’re famished, or sometimes I’ll give these to people asking for money on the street..instead of money, I ask if ‘this’ is okay, and often they’re happy to accept a healthy (ish) snack!
    – a blanket (in the winter) – in case you have car issues or anything and you happen to be stranded for any length of time (I live in Canada)
    -sunscreen in the summer (you never know if you’ll end up being outside for long lengths of time!)
    – dog kibble (if you see a stray dog or cat they’ll almost always come over to you if you have some food to shake around)
    – sunglasses
    – reusable grocery bag – in case you decide to run to the store while you’re out and about!

    And everything else you added! It can all be kept pretty compact!

    How about including wipes, and even some odor removing carpet cleaner and a towel? When you are shuttling little ones around, you never know when one of them will get road sick!

    I like to keep some forever stamps, envelopes, and pen in case I have something to mail. And since I have cats, I keep a lint roller in the car.
