How I Stay Prepared As A Daily Commuter

Hi loves❤️

As most of ya’ll know – I am a daily commuter. I have been commuting since I entered the work force. Currently, I have a 2 hour round trip three days a week. Luckily, I have a current agreement with my company that allows me to work remote twice a week. Even with my remote agreement, I’m still on the road SIX hours a week – just to get to & from work. This doesn’t include any errands I run throughout the week.

As a type 1 on the enneagram scale, I am a very prepared person. I try to have everything in order well in advance. So, as soon as I got my first vehicle – I tried to stock it with everything I would possibly need. As I go through different seasons in life, I tend to keep different items in my car. As a daily commuter now – I would be lost without the below items. Some of these I have never had to use, but have peace of mind knowing I have them stocked in my car.

My Go-To List

In The Trunk
  • Blanket
  • Flashlight
  • Jumper Cables
  • Sweatshirt

Much love,
