Do you currently have an emergency car kit? Some of you know I've been involved with several emergency preparedness projects in my neighborhood. I went super “prepper” for a few years, and still feel really strongly about being prepared for an emergency. I started with 72-hr kits, and then tried LOTS of food storage brands for over a year before finding the BEST long-term food storage. With all my efforts however, one of my favorite emergency items was gifted to me!
Last year my adorable mother-in-law made these emergency car kits for us for Christmas. I wanted to share them with you today in case you want to make a similar gift for someone in need of some emergency preparedness. These only cost me about $10-12 to put together, but are such a lifesaver if you are ever caught in a traffic jam, storm, or just the business of life.
We printed the “How to Jump a Car” cheat sheets from Housewife Eclectics. You can get the fleece blankets for super cheap at Walmart.
Here are the contents of the car emergency kit (we have a separate car kit with jumper cables, tow rope, etc.)
If you wanted to add larger items (like jumper cables, etc.) you could put everything in a larger bin like this:
