Emergency Car Kit

I like to keep a bin in the trunk of my car that I consider to be an emergency car kit.  Having an extra change of clothes for the kids, a few extra bucks when I’ve forgotten my wallet, or even a roll of paper towels to clean up a spill has come in handy more times than I can count.  I wanted to share with you in case you wanted to create an emergency car kit of your own.
