the car kit

If you live somewhere relatively un-walkable, a car kit (or bike kit or work desk kit) is so handy. My car kit is a small wooden crate that has a rotating collection of helpful bits. When I find myself needing coffee or a to-go box, I just go out to the car and grab it. In the year I’ve been using it, my car kit has saved lots of plastic and paper from landfills!

Glasslock Oven-Safe To-Go Containers. Keep a couple of these in your car kit and you’ll never need a to-go box on date night. After a meal, I just walk out to the car and grab one. $26 for 3

To-Go Ware Utensils. You’ll never hear metal clanging around in your bag with these! If you aren’t a chopsticks fan, swap them out for an 8″ smoothie straw.  (Note: I keep my utensils in my bag rather than the car kit). $12
