    I cleared out my car tonight and found 3 pairs of heels, about ten pens, bobby pins, paper clips, receipts, artwork, two spoons, CDs and DVDs AND £10.34 in change from different parts of the car.

    I now have a snow shovel, umbrella and car cleaning products in the boot. I want to get a box and keep important things in there. What should I have? I need to get a spare tyre sorted.

    What do you guys have in your car? What is the most random thing you have?

    I couldn't even tell you what was in the back of mine at the moment. Aside from the usual food rubbish in the foot wells, there's:

    In the driver's door pocket: multi-meter, tissue for oil level checks, case for the head unit fascia, a notebook and pen
    Under the driver's seat: Industrial gauge jump leads
    In the passengers door pocket: rope, a couple of CDs, some bits and pieces
    Glovebox/dash shelf/dash pocket: Sat nav+charger, phone charger, multi-knife, zip ties, spare cables for wiring issues, pliers, spare change, CDs, snake toy, sunglasses, screwdrivers, lots of fun stuff
    Rear door pockets: various bits and pieces, mostly junk
    Boot: Ammo box containing first aid kit, wheel chocks, owner's manual, and a couple of tools, along with in the rest of the boot; my amp+sub, classic car spotlight, fire extinguisher, a few DVDs, a tarpaulin, ratchet straps for the roof rack, bungee netting for the roof rack, bungee cords, a few spare bulbs, spare dizzy cap, spare plugs, a couple of floor mats, tool kit, plug wrench, and loads of other odds and sods including a few more tools. There was a pickaxe in there for a while too, for some reason.

    Other than that, a map, an ice scraper, screen wash, a bag of mints/sweets (always), headache tablets. During winter - always a shovel and a duvet too

    Bet the ammo box would give a police officer a fit if they pulled you over before you explained what is actually in it!

    A crap load of change and a mountain of receipts, mainly for petrol. Unfortunately, most of the change is shrapnel.
