Keep A Multi-Head Screwdriver And Calling Card In Your Car

We've run down the basics of tyre leaks and hot-wiring your car in the past. Now the Marc & Angel blog has a few additions to round out your road travel preparedness.

With mobile phone service seeming so ubiquitous and car chargers stuffing one's glove box, it's easy to think of any emergency as being easily solved by a few quick taps. When you're out of power and unable to charge, though, having a spare calling card on hand might be a pretty welcome relief. Here's the productivity blog's take on two unique items:

Multi-head Screwdriver – Take a look around. I bet most of the manmade objects around you are being held together by screws. Throughout your lifetime you're going to need to tighten and loosen a whole lot of them. And you won't always be near your tool chest when these occasions arise. Keep decent multi-head screwdriver with a wide assortment of screwdriver heads in your car and you'll be prepared.

Prepaid Calling Card – A calling card basically allows you to call anyone, anywhere from any telephone. They are particularly convenient when you misplace your cell phone or when you're in an area that lacks cell service.

22 Tools You Should Keep in Your Car [Marc and Angel Hack Life]


    I always keep these things in my car also:
    - Torch
    - Mints/Mouth Fresheners
    - Deodorant/Antiperspirant
    - Coins for parking meters

      Forgot to mention painkillers like Panadol or Nurofen. Keep a small packet of these just in case you get a headache. Standard First Aid kits don't have these because they are regarded as drugs.

    I always keep these things in the car.

    1 - Small camping quality torch, waterproof also
    2 - First aid kit with Panadol (painkillers)
    3 - Bottle of water, drinking water all the time.

    In the boot I always keep an old safety reflective vest, never had to use it, but if I ever need to change a tyre at night, I sure will use it.

    Keep a plastic tarp folded neatly with the spare tyre compartment.

    A bottle of puncture repair and 2Litre water bottle and 1 Litre of engine oil, just in case.. might come in handy one day :)

    1 - A bag of cheap lollies. There's some slow-as-molasses traffic lights were I live, I have a quick snack.

    2 - A cricket bat and tennis ball. Because cricket could break out at any time, and you need to be prepared.

    3 - A bag kept in the boot, containing spare underwear, a toothbrush, a towel, and some bathers. If necessary I can live out of this for a few days.

      haha @Jack Scott thats amusing
