Summertime means lots of last minute adventures and trips to the beach after work. I am a person who loves to plan and be prepared so last minute ideas make me nervous! I have come up with the perfect solution to keep my car ready for day trips and last minute adventures all summer long! The best part?! I was able to get all of it at Canadian Tire!

One thing I try to avoid is clutter, so I wanted to have everything I need for last minute trips but keep it tidy. I don’t want my car to feel like a travelling suitcase! I always keep a plastic bin in my trunk, normally filled with some emergency and safety supplies if anything ever happened. It hardly takes up any room and it is perfect to hold all that I need for summer adventures.

With these items in your car you are ready to go on any summer road trip or adventure ! A popular last minute trip for me is heading for a hike or to the beach! I might even keep a swim suit or some hiking wear in my car if I feel like I might be doing that. You could add anything you feel you might need! It’s better to have it than forget it!

A big thing I have been learning as I get older to to make sure your car is ready for all these adventures. Justin really keeps me in check on knowing my vehicle and being prepared.  Checking the oil in my car and doing an oil change is both a good safety check for your road trips and adventures and it is a good life skill to know how to do!

When in doubt go ask Canadian Tire that’s what I always say! I went and found a great car oil to keep my car running and feeling great.  It is one thing for a car to feel good with a fresh  oil change but after putting lots of kilometers on, idling,and stopping at traffic lights you want to know your oil will last. These are exactly the tests that Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ Motor Oil is put through. I found my Quaker State oil at Canadian tire for an amazing price! Be sure to use the oil necessary for your car, as specified in your owner’s manual and check local Canadian Tire stores for availability!

    I couldn’t agree more that taking care of your car before a road-trip is important. It would be a nightmare to have car problems on an adventure!

    Oil changes are SO important. My darling husband recently let his car go wayyyy overdue for an oil change and it caused SO many problems. The second we got the oil changed, almost everything resolved!

    These are really good tips! Thanks for sharing! oil change is so important and I always forget to change it on time!
