1. Bring a First Aid Kit (Just In Case)
Do you have a first aid kit in your car at all times? I’m going to guess that most of us don’t.
Let’s face it, accidents happen and can sometimes be inevitable. Whether it’s a scrapped knee from your child’s ill-advised sprint (and subsequent fall) across the Dairy Queen parking lot or something a tad more serious, having a first aid kit is a great way to ensure the safety of your loved ones.
The real questions is what items should you keep stocked in your kit?
At minimum, be sure your first aid kit contains motion sickness remedies, pain killers, anti-bacterial cream and bandages.
