In the trunk of my vehicle I have: a chain lock, crash helmet, fluorescent safety vest and gloves.
After I moved to the city I sold my car and bought a 50cc scooter Does a little over 90 mpg (I'm not exactly what you'd call skinny ;) ), moves through traffic about twice as fast as a car, can't go faster than the speed limit and doesn't require a parkingspace. I just love it
And in theory I could rent a ferrari or a porche 2 days a month and still spend less on a car than I did when I had my own car

Tonight let us eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.

I have a pick-up but have a big tool box with all manner of tools, heavy-duty bumper jack, jumper cables, tow chains, etc. in the bed along with the usual spare tire (or 2). Depending on what day, there might be bales of hay and assorted bags of dog food, cat food, etc.

I've got you all beat for "odd stuff"

Fisher CZ-5 metal detector, with both accessory coils
Fisher CZ-20 waterproof metal detector
assorted accessory gear for the CZ-5
a "water scoop" to use with the CZ-20
a floating sifter basket, again for use with the CZ-20
4-gallon PVC bucket for trash
a small shovel
One of those mechanical hand thingies, it allows me to grab bottles and cans w/o bending over (they're worth $0.10/each here in MI)
a couple trash bags

Boxes to hold my grocery bags (so they don't fall over), first aid kit, roll of paper towels, rain coat, tote bag, bungie cord and of course a roll of DUCT TAPE, can't go anywhere without that.

cockpit cover, paper towels, regular towel, wide-brimmed hat, bag w/my iPod and other work necessities, battery, 540w amp, 6-disc changer, pad of paper, pen, jumper cables, roll of toilet paper, some other stuff that I can't remember. That's the Miata. The xB doesn't have a trunk.

We have a wagon so we don't have a boot as such but more space to put stuff!!
At the moment we have
2 folding chairs
A large pram
Nappy bag full of handy baby stuff
2 apples which escaped from the shopping and no one will bring in for me
Sterile dressings in packets from DH's leg operation in case it bled at home and which have also never made it into the house!
Worksheets from Erin's school
A frisbee for the dog not that the dog would fit in the boot at the moment
Some random items of children's clothing
Random pieces of tupperware
A picnic rug
Xrays from my foot surgery
Plastic garbage bags
A plastic fork
A baby blanket
Pencil case and colouring book
There could be more but I have already made 2 trips outside to check and DH is laughing at me!!! We could survive in the bush for days with whats in the boot if only we had food and water to go with it!!!

There is no such thing as a little garlic.
