Yesterday while we were doing a walk through on our house Brian cut his toe on the limestone fireplace (something we now view as a beautiful hazard). Thankfully the construction supervisor had a first aid kit in his truck and Brian was able to clean and bandage it. But it got me thinking...now that I have a child (and even if I didn't) it's a good idea to have a first aid kit in my car. So off to Wal-Mart I went...and yes, I really don't like Wal-Mart, but it was closer than Target.
Wal-Mart had these nice Johnson and Johnson first aid kits for $9.97. I bought one of those and then also bought a pencil box in the school supply section for .97. Then I went and purchased a few extra things like a benadryl stick, neosporin to go, tape, guaze, and antiseptic. When I got home I found lots of great coupons in the Johnson and Johnson First Aid kit that were for the stuff I had just bought---ugh!!! But the coupons don't expire until 12/13, so I will use them in the future.
I took the original kit apart and began sorting out between the two boxes. The larger first aid kit will stay in my car and I used the smaller box to create a kit for Brian's car (whenever he actually gets a car---but that's another, very long story)
I put the kit under the driver's seat
and on another organizing note---I saw this idea on Pinterest. Buy a plastic "cereal" container, line it with a plastic grocery sack, and use it as your trash can in your car. Brian can't stand it when that little compartment on my car door is full of trash, so I thought this was a great solution. I ended up getting some velcro and attaching it to the floor mat because it would always tip over while I was driving. We'll see if it works!
