    In the boot I have shopping bags, a picnic blanket, waterproof coat, torch, CDs, car hoover, 3d glasses for the cinema (otherwise I forget them and have to buy more!), a pair of shoes quite often coz I drive 50 miles to uni so I sometimes change them when I get there!

    Inside I have satnav and iPod cables, sweets, de icer, scraper, wet wipes, small stuffed elephant, cushion on the back seat, bin full of wrappers and tickets, lip balm. Usually have another coat on the backseat and a bottle of water.

    Never leave my satnav or CD player in there though

    Ice scraper
    De-icer
    Three pairs of sunglasses (none of them are mine)
    A couple of tea towels
    Two sleeping bags (don't know whose they are or where they're from, so they reside in the boot)
    I think there's a jar of paprika in the boot that keeps rolling around

    I share with my brother, but he's at uni most of the time, so it's mine at the moment. Most of the stuff is items he's left there (although he has no idea where the sleeping bags are from either :lol: )

    To tell you the true, not much!
    Being a locksmiths' daughter you hear horror stories on how easy it is to break into a car.
    Just check out this video on Youtube - a guy can actually open a car with a potato.
    So I keep there only something I don't mind loosing - old picnic blanket, pretty old sunglasses, gas recites I forgot to throw away...

    CDs
    FM transmitter thing for my phone
    AutoGlym Fast Glass + microfibre cloth in the first aid box (don't know where the kit went...)
    Haynes manual
    Shovel in the boot (for snow)
    Sleeping bag
    High visibility jacket
    Spare oil, coolant, screenwash, and two big bottles of water
    Big towel in the boot
    Small tool kit

    To be honest most of this was in preparation for winter (I live in deepest darkest Highlands) but it does seem like a good idea to keep it in the car at all times.

    What type are you?... just saying because chocolate isn't exactly good hypo treatment :P (If you are type 1 like me ), you should have something along with chocolate like fruit juice cartons as quick acting incase you have a hypo and long acting (chocolate) to sustain you :P

    Well seeing as I share a car with my parents, they don't want me putting stuff in there as they have to use it too. However this rule only applies to me and not to them. So I find:
    - My dads bright pink umbrella in there
    - A random hippy carpet which is a makeshift duvet that my dad says should be in there in case it is a freezing day or someone is in an accident and has to wait in the cold for a long time
    - £20 in case of an emergency
    - 1 CD of mine which is always left in the car but never playing unless I am in it (no one knows it is there)
    - A wire for my ipod (however I take my ipod out as i get out of the car as i use it not just in the car)
    - A water bottle
    - All the boring but important stuff.... de-icer, scraper, probably a pen and maybe paper in there somewhere

    I have a small bag with everything I need in. I have no idea what it contains, but it has spare tablets, deodorant, toothbrush, tissues, a spoon, some money, and lots of other things.

    I'm Type 1 too! Chocolate has always worked perfectly well for me, and I don't drink fruit juice.

    God, if I had a car it'd be spotless. How can you all carry so much junk?

    More to the point the weight adds up so you end up lowering your MPG as well. Adds up over the year.
