What is in your car trunk?

Bog me down with details.
Me:
jumper cables
two coolers
air vac
car interior/exterior cleaners
extra socks...dont ask why i just always have
a bag of goodwill clothes
one of those gas containers

and some other unnecessary items. Gosh, I could save a whale with the gas I could save if I were to shave some pounds from the car trunk!!!

I know...I'm pathetic!
Am I alone?

Ah, yes...the tripod...i just got one and my trunk is the perfect place for it! How bad would it be to be caught without one in the picture perfect time frame and in the picture perfect spot!

I am just a junk in the trunk junkie!

I drive a van so I hesitate to even THINK about all the crap that floats around behind me. I am sure there is about 5 lbs of goldfish crackers/granola bar crumbs/assorted wrappers. UGH!

Spare tire, jack, tool kit and first aid kit provided by the manufacturer and an electric tire pump/emergency light and a bottle of windshield washer fluid provided by me. There's not much room for other stuff.

My chairs don't seem to leave my car. Since it's just my husband and I, and his 10 yr old daughter every other weekend, we find it to be a good storage space!
