10 on the 10th

Today I'm a day late joining some of my blogging friends, but life!

I'm sharing 10 things I always have in my car. It's a complete hodgepodge of stuff, so let's get right into today's post!

A Cup

I always have some cup, whether it's a Yeti or a Tervis, I need a cup just in case I need a refill of coffee or water!

Oil Diffuser

I love diffusing some essential oils while we are in the car. You'll typically find DoTerra's OnGuard going in our car, and I just love the idea of the extra protection!
I found THIS DIFFUSER at Walmart, and it works perfectly well. It's also pretty inexpensive, and it offers an additional USB port for chargers!


I keep my gym keys in the car, always!


I have super sensitive eyes, so sometimes when I'm applying my make-up, I wait until the last minute (like when we get somewhere) to apply my mascara! You just never know when you might need a touch-up, also!

Pens & Pencils

I always have a wide array of writing utensils because it's inevitable that the boys will need to do homework while we are running our crazy schedules! 


My kiddos are #obsessed with gum & mints, so we always have at least one pack of gum in the car!


These are my 'back-up' pair from Target, but my favorite aviators were broken at Easter. I'm looking for another pair, but I haven't found any I just love yet.
{Send me your recommendations}


I think these are pretty much standard in all vehicles now, or they should be at least. It's always plugged up to something. It's inevitable that Nataleigh's iPad or the boys' phones will be low on battery because someone forgot to charge their tablet over night, so it's constantly charging something!

Hair Ties

These are for Nataleigh's hair, but I also keep some for my own hair in the car, as well! Even though there's only two girls in our family, we need a lot of these!


We always, always, always have tons of toys in our car. I mean, Nataleigh brings at least one L.O.L. Doll with us wherever we go, but right now she is loving this little doodle case with her crayons! She's all about the doodle!

Well that is about all that I have in my car always. Like every mom with busy kids, our cars become more of a revolving door of our kids' activities. We always have cheer, baseball, & basketball stuff in and out of our car, and it's just how we like it. We'll have a perfectly clean car soon enough, so we are enjoying this season!

  1. Love it! I am a gum and mint person too! I love the oil diffuser.

  2. I had no idea they made diffusers for cars! That's a great idea! I'd have it stocked with a nice calming blend to deal with the drivers around here!

    1. It’s so good! i need to grab some of those calming oils for my crazy kids.

  3. Every time you post about your car oil diffuser I want one, I am putting it in my cart right now!!!

  4. Love posts like this. Your car looks super organised! I am definitely going to check on Amazon if I can get a plug in oil diffuser - a calming one for after work, ha! I have super sensitive eyes too, was just doing an internet search this morning on good mascaras and eye pencils for that so if you have any tips please let me know! Some natural ones I've tried just bleed and flake everywhere. L'Oréal is great but irritates at bit.

    1. Oh my car is so not organized. We basically live in it, but it’s just a season of life. I haven’t found anything yet for my sensitive eyes, except I tried eyelash extensions this past winter. It was amazing not needed to ever wear mascara. I use my darkest eyeshadow normally for liner. Let me know what your search finds. ;)
