Default Re: What items do you always carry in your car / glovebox?

don't know if this the best place to mention this...

this is more like "what do i want to add to my car/boot for sure"

I saw a boot that had an elastic net that had the four corners fastened to the floor board

serves as a hold for sneakers, extra bottle etc and this way it wont 'run' around like mice every time when we turn the car!

can someone tell me where to get this?

Came across 2 gadgets in a friends car

*Laser interceptor (works for radars and lasers) havent seen it in action but would love the end result of this 'almost essential' item LOL

*12v Car vacuum cleaner, not a ching chong, sing song type, but a solid piece that can be neatly tucked in to the boot.

I'm surely gonna get the V cleaner, but as far as the interceptor, it will take all my bread and butter to get that Jammer..

Default Re: What items do you always carry in your car / glovebox?

I store a variety of things in my car:

Glovebox
  1. Car documents
  2. An umbrella - A lightweight, compact, windproof umbrella with automatic opening and closing from Korjo.
  3. Philips Penlight Professional LED torch - This LED flashlight torch is waterproof and has a single beam of 3600 lux and a wide beam of 250 lux.
  4. Microfiber duster with foldable handle

Driver-side door pocket
  1. Hand sanitizer
  2. Wallet
  3. Eatables
  4. Nick-nacks
  5. A pack of face wipes

Cubby hole
  1. Loose change
  2. Co-passenger's phone (my phone is usually mounted on dashboard)
  3. Keys
  4. Toll tickets

Bottle holder
1 litre water bottle

Boot
  1. Extra bottle of drinking water
  2. Car cover
  3. Car duster
  4. One quick detailing microfiber towel
  5. One lint-free microfiber towel for windscreen
  6. Quick detailing solution in spray bottle
  7. Purified water in spray bottle

I am looking for suggestions on what more things can I put in the passenger-side front door pocket and seat cover pockets. I am also wondering what can I store below the front seats. Below the passenger front seat I already keep a can of perfume, attached with double sided tape. Can I move the two microfiber towels from the boot and keep them below the driver seat? That way they will be more accessible, yet out of sight. Little chance of them getting dirty as I have 3D mats which contain the dust very well. Is it possible to install storage bins below the seats?
