I love being organised! As most of you can already probably tell from my ‘Babysitter Box‘. I hate to be caught out if there is an emergency situation.
I passed my driving test at 38 weeks pregnant. Woo! Go me! But driving around with a newborn baby when you’re inexperienced is actually terrifying! I really didn’t want to ever be caught in a situation where i’d be broken down or stuck somewhere with no food or nappies. So I made this emergency car breakdown kit:
I made this kit nearly a year ago & although it is ‘incase of breakdown’, I’ve used it so much: when I’ve forgotten nappies, or baby milk, or even when I’ve found myself in a traffic jam & been desperate for something to eat for myself. Our amazingly organised kit includes:
Nappies, wipes, sacks, a change of clothes for Evie, formula, a food pouch, spoon, medicine & a muslin square.
Plasters, nurofen, ear plugs, duct tape, tissues, lip balm, torch, tampons, waterproof coat (the plastic throwaway one you can get from mountain warehouse), a pen, sellotape, duct tape, camping cutlery, kitchen towel, water bottle, nutrigrain bars.
Some of it may seem non-essential. But the amount of times I’ve been desperate for lip balm, or I’ve forgotten to write a card or wrap a present & needed a pen & some sellotape!
Everything in this box has a purpose for my family. In summer I will be putting some mini suncream in the boot & a spare sun hat for Evie. I always forget things like this!
Everything fits snuggly into this cute little box from Card Factory. The little zip bags are travel bags from boots & were £8 for a pack of three. We have put her nappy essentials in one of these, so it’s so much easier to take around if we need to!
What do you think about an ‘Emergency Car Breakdown Kit’? Do you have one? Is there any essentials that you would add to it?
