Storage: There are few things more annoying than being in a situation where you need quick access to your vehicle’s emergency supplies, only to notice they are buried beneath luggage, car games and sleeping bags. Make sure yours are stored in an easy-to-reach location. One way to do this is to keep a grab-and-go container just inside the door to your car’s trunk or rear storage space. Inexpensive milk crates work well, as do those soft-sided storage solutions for sale at auto supply stores. You can also use a flat-bottomed canvas bag with pockets on the outside.
