Preparing for every day: Glove compartment

Our cars are an extension of our homes and we spend a ton of time in our cars every week. A glove box or glove compartment is not a place to store empty candy wrappers and take out packets of soy sauce (or, usually, actual gloves). To the contrary, a neat and orderly glove box with a few necessary items can make stressful times like traffic accidents and being pulled over a little bit less intense.

The 7 things that should be in every glove box:

  • current registration for your car (not the registration for every year since you’ve owned the car)
  • current insurance information (again, not every insurance period is necessary. Just what is valid now)
  • pad of paper
  • 2 pens
  • area map (even if you have GPS)
  • extra sunglasses
  • travel pack of tissues
