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!!!
I'm trying to picture you driving down the road with Jessica, Erin, and Riley strapped to the top of the car! That is where you put them, right? LOL Just teasing of course--we have just as much in our car, and we don't have kids at home!

Nothing. Just speakers. I HATE clutter. My ex-gf would drive me nuts with the crap she'd just leave in there (shoes, jackets, stuff to exchange, etc., etc., etc.)

A suitcase for a quick getaway. Re the trunk of the car, whatever is necessary for car maintenance and is concealed. Alert to all you single gals, if you get into the guy's vehicle and it's piled up with junk/clutter, his dwelling will be just as much of a mess. Also, keep in mind, all the added junk in your trunk is going to wear down the tires, probably extra gas costs, & ruin your shocks.

Yes this is true, but for those in snowy areas the extra weight helps with traction.

in the "wayback" part of my Jeep:

dog hair

The rest of Alix's goldfish crumbs and wrappers that blew down from the frozen North, mingling with their southern cousins.

One of those folding screen thingies to keep the heat out (that I never use).

roadside emergency kit

umbrella (also always forgotten when needed)

ancient first aid kit.
