Five Products That Make Life on the Road Better
You spend a lot of time in your car. Too much time, probably. If a lot of driving is a necessary part of your existence, the following products listed by Bustle writer Megan Grant might be what you need to make your life on the road easier, better organized, and more comfortable.
Hanging car storage systems that affix to the back of the front seats can prevent your car’s cabin from being overrun by trash and clutter. Choose one with several pockets to corral items like umbrellas, water bottles, and books to entertain your kids.
There’s no need to rush out and buy a new car or suffer endlessly if your driver’s seat isn’t equipped with lumbar support. Grant suggests purchasing the LoveHome Memory Foam Lumbar Support Back Cushion to ease your aching back.
If you spend a lot of time on the road, chances are you do your fair share of eating in the car. And if you have kids, they’re probably always eating when they’re in the car. To contain the wrappers, mess, and trash left over from a meal-on-the-go, Grant recommends investing in an odor-trapping, leak-proof trash can designed for your car, like the High Road StashAway Car Trash Can with Lid and Storage Pockets. To clean up the crumbs, she suggests toting a cordless hand vacuum in the trunk of your car.

As a responsible driver, you probably have an emergency kit stashed in your trunk, right? An emergency kit should contain items such as first aid essentials, jumper cables, blankets, extra cellphone charger, multi-purpose tool, flashlight with extra batteries, nonperishable food, and bottled water. If you don’t have one or if yours is lacking, it’s time to purchase a ready-made kit, assemble your own, or update your current kit.
