Summer Roadtrip Essentials

With the start of summer, comes the start of roadtrips. We've already got a few planned and for me (and my sanity), it's essential to be prepared. So I've gotten a jump on it and started with the most important thing for any trip...the car! 
I stopped by Walmart to grab a few things for the inside of our car, including a new FRAM Extra Guard Air Filter. (find the right one for your car here)
Living in Arizona, we're no strangers to dust and a clean filter prevents dirt and dust from entering and damaging the engine. Damaged engine = no fun summer road trips.
Air filters are the engine's first line of defense, so it's super important to keep your filter clean to increase acceleration, horsepower, and improve overall engine performance.

Replacing it is super simple, and doesn't take more than a few minutes.  You see the difference in those filters?! Yikes....sorry car.  Pop in the new FRAM Extra Guard filter and pop the cover back on.

 Once we were done with that I stuffed a little bag full of essentials to keep in the car.  Wet wipes, tissues, a little first-aid kit (including some tylenol & tums), hand sanitizer, a flashlight, and a few grocery bags to throw any trash in.
Keeping this handy bag in the car will keep our trips running smoothly, while our clean engine runs smoothly to get us to our fun summer adventures!

  1. Great idea on including bandages! We're going to be prepping soon for a long road trip and this is a good idea, along with making sure our engine air filter is changed. It really is so easy, isn't it? :) #client
