I originally posted about having a Go-To Bag back in the very beginning stages of this blog. I wanted to follow up on it and perhaps revisit the idea for those of you who are new ’round these parts.
With summer just around the corner, it is imperative that you have some sort of Go-To Bag in your car. Not only is it good to have it, but to keep it updated as well. Just recently I was doing a clean sweep of our SUV and realized it has been nearly 5 months since I’ve re-stocked our Go-To Bag/Compartment and with the new season approaching and a growing baby this was a must.
The beauty of the bag, is to have items on hand that you’ll need to use. Therefore, don’t feel guilty for busting out a fruit snack for your little one, or if you take 2 Tylenol for a headache. Simply make a mental note (or an actual one) to replace it. Often times I’m so hurried that I forget, so having it on my calendar as a to-do is a great reminder.
As mentioned above, with the warmer weather rolling in, having a good supply of bottled water, sunblock, and hats for the kids is a great set of supplies. Just yesterday we had an owie incident with our oldest far from home, and although he was very much against me touching his “wound”, I’m glad I was armed and ready for it. Just be sure that in case of emergency, you are prepared.

What sorts of items do you keep on hand in your car this time of year?
