Recently I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Tupperware carry away.
Have I told you lately that I LOVE containers?!
There are a few things you can do with this. It could be used as a first aid box, picnic set, sewing box, kid's activity box or even a craft box. I was going to use it to keep some colouring in things in for Molly but when it arrived I decided the bottom section wasn't quite tall enough for me. Since I had already been planning to make a car kit I thought it would be perfect!
Before I started planning my kit too much I pulled out the kit I already had that was in a reusable shopping bag in my boot. Then I had a look around for some inspiration. I found these kits here:
Just click on them to see the links
I made a list, collected all the things around the house I wanted and got to organising!
Here's the top section:
The containers inside are also Tupperware and called oyster sets. My mini first aid kit has bandaids, a bandage, sterile gauze, steri-strips, splinter remover, alcohol swabs, and saline solution (great for washing out wound and emergency contact lens rinsing).
Here's the bottom section:
The kid's have a whole outfit each including socks. The disposable bibs are from Target. The old cloth nappy is great for water spills or when you child is car sick.
Here it is in the back of my car with a picnic rug on the top. I keep it in the car as I have limited room in my boot.
Tucked in each of the back seat pockets is a Fisher Price mini doodle pro and a couple of books for the kids.
On my front seat is a small fabric bag to hold essential that I may need to reach easily like another snack box, face wipes, tissues, hand sanitiser, small water bottle, rubbish bag and a container for putting receipts in that I need for tax purposes.
But that's not all! In my boot I have a reuseable shopping bag with my pram's rain cover, shade cover and a spare baby blanket. In my car's centre consoles I keep spare change, business cards, two pens, a car bottle warmer and playschool cd's. In glove box is my car manual and a spare set of sunglasses.
One thing missing is some sick bags. I'm going to pick up some of them
next time I go to the chemist.
Have I missed anything that you would recommend?
