Usually our dog, not in the trunk though.

We have a toyota 4runner, and our Seijo goes with us everywhere. She has a cozy dog bed and a couple frisbees. There's jumper cables and things like that too, emergency stuff.

Cables, and a few of those large plastic sheets the nursery gives you so you don't get soil in your car when you purchase plants. I've found they're great to use under anything, and it keeps the carpet in your trunk very clean, and when not in use, they fold down to a really small size.

A bag of tools, various belts for the car, a quart of oil, transmission fluid, gallon milk jug, blanket, change of clothes for my kids, a Haynes manual for my car, air pump, battery charger (it & the pump plug into the cig lighter), trash bag, rubber gloves (in case I have to change a tire & don't want to get my hands dirty), & a thing of baby wipes.

The last time I was caught in the rain there were 4 umbrellas, a cane for reaching items that scoot away from the basket, a last year's telephone directory, a cooler and a plastic picnic table cloth. There were no umbrellas in the front of the car. I forgot about the tire changing stuff but that is hidden away under the mat somewhere.

I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.

Along with the usual jack, spare tire and tools I have a bunch of reciepts from BJ's, an old mat and a cooler bag. Honestly I'm pretty proud of how clean it is lately! It used to be much worse.
