UPDATE 7/2/12: Thanks for visiting from Pinterest! For the new, updated, and improved version of this box go here! Revamped using suggestions that showed up in my comments.My car is gross. Seriously. I took pictures, but I'm too embarrassed to show you guys.
Anyway, I'm always rummaging around for something when I hear "Mom! I need a (fill in the blank)!" And after a recent in-the-car nosebleed, well...I had to make this box.
It's super easy and very cheaply made.
Just get yourself a wipes box (a plastic shoebox will work to, but this is what I had on hand), some scrap fabric, scissors, and a glue gun.
Cover the box with the scraps.
And then fill it.
I put in a grocery bag for trash, wipes, a diaper, hand sanitizer, band aids, pain reliever, lotion, tissues, a safety pin, a hair elastic, a five dollar bill, a granola bar, a pen, Carmex, and some fruit snacks.
Shut the lid.
Now you're ready for anything. Like when your bra strap breaks or someone tries to hand you a half-chewed gummy worm.
