I wanted to share with you ladies a few things that I have found to be of great use that I try to ALWAYS keep in my vehicle.
I always have a supply of dental floss but it's a little hard to drive and floss at the same time. I learned about these while getting my teeth cleaned at the dentist once. I am sure there are many different brands but I found these at the Dollar Tree and love them.
This small sewing kit also came from the Dollar Tree and I have found that you never know when you might need to use something out of it.
YES, I know some probably think I am crazy for keeping a pair of scissors in my vehicle but have you ever purchased something and you sat there for 30 minutes trying to open? I mean it was either keeping a chainsaw or a pair of scissors in my ride so scissors it was! You guessed it....I bought a pair at the Dollar Tree.
And...you never know what else you might need a pair of scissors for this day and time.....
Before disinfecting wipes got so hard to find I kept a large canister of disinfecting wipes in my vehicle. I have found these "to go packs" recently so bought up a few and I always have wipes in my vehicle.
I have always kept a travel size of hand sanitizer in my purse but I now keep a travel size in my vehicle as well. Matter of fact I will let you in on a little secret.....I have always been a little fanatic about keeping hand sanitizer around! When it's not convenient to wash your hands, then I am thankful for this stuff!
I love my little car bin trash can. It isn't very big but it works perfect for me. Mercy, I have tossed everything in that little bin from coke cans, chip bags, old receipts that I have emptied out of my purse and well, you name it. It also has a little tab on one side that you can hang it up in your vehicle if you wanted too. I can't remember where I found this at but I do know you can purchase them off of Amazon.
And, I always keep ibuprofen on hand. Most often a bottle is in my purse and one in my vehicle.
These are just a few of my favorite things that I have found to be most helpful to keep in my vehicle and most of it can be found at the Dollar Tree. Cheap enough right? Of course we won't talk about what is in my purse!!!! MY MERCY, I need to carry a rolling suitcase around with me!
I have to share these yummy little energy bites with you too. My oldest daughter makes these and she likes to freeze them before eating. I like mine right out of the frig. So many ways to make these. My favorite are the peanut butter, honey and chocolate chip ones. Here's the link if interested:
Be warned...it's hard to just eat a few!
I found this adorable lunch set. It is very roomy with a large pouch on the inside and 2 openings on the outside. It came with 2 food/snack containers and a bottle as you can see. I work a few days a week outside the home and I honestly dislike fast foods all the time. Much rather carry something from home. Besides it seems now that one can spend their entire lunch time sitting in the drive through!!! On sale for $9.99 at Goodies. My kind of buy!
Remember these pictures I showed to you last week from our beach trip? Well i ordered some canvas pieces and love how they turned out. The picture of a picture doesn't do these justice but trust me, they are so darling.
I ordered on a Tuesday and had them by Saturday. I highly recommend www.simplecanvasprints.com
Made a very easy dessert for Sunday dinner. Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Cook as directed. Once taken out of oven, shake a package of dry chocolate pudding over the top. Poke holes in the cake while still warm. Make a batch of instant vanilla pudding. Follow directions on box. Then pour over the cake and toss a few mini chocolate chips on top. Once the cake is cool put it in the refrigerator, covered. Let cake sit over night so that pudding can seep in the holes. Right before serving spread with cool whip that is room temp and then toss a few more chocolate chips on top.
Simple, quick and easy.
I will close today with one of my favorite scriptures. Recently this scripture was quoted to me by a very wise and Christ-like gentleman about another person. His statement about a particular lady that I know and I love was, "In the short time he had known her that she seemed to truly make decisions according to this verse". He said, "she seems to TRUST the Lord with all of her heart and she appears to not LEAN on her own understanding. As long as she ACKNOWLEDGES the Lord He will DIRECT her path". WOW! I was so moved by his statement about her that I shared this with her simply to encourage her. Seems like a scripture I want to live by. How about you?
Be sure to share some handy dandy things you like to keep in your vehicle with us.
I hope that you all have a wonderful week friend.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
