Carefree Car Ownership
Items for college students to keep in their cars
If you're a college student, having a car provides many opportunities to easily explore off-campus life, purchase groceries and home supplies, embark on day trips away from school and commute home for the holidays. Here are some car travel tips for essential items college students should have in their cars.
Students with cars often live within driving distance of home. Driving back and forth for the holidays can become a little more difficult when you're constantly scrounging for change to pay state highway tolls. Keep a commuter pass linked to your debit card for quick and easy toll payments - a valuable commodity when factoring in holiday season traffic.
With so many electronic devices to keep track of for school and personal life, it's easy to forget about charging batteries before you head out the door. Keep a variety of cell phone chargers, laptop adapters and digital music chargers available for added convenience on the go.
Extra school supplies
If you use your car to get to class on time (a constant struggle in college), you may want to keep some spare notebooks, pens, pencils, USB drives and other necessary materials in your car. This can be a lifesaver when you're running late for class and accidentally leave your backpack by your bedroom door.
