Spinoff of the Stupid Question Thread "What's in the trunk of your car?"

For a few months now I have been riding around a deflated full size inflatable mattress (out of the box) & some pieces of Pampered Chef cookware in my trunk.

What's in your trunk?

I'm a soccer mom with a minivan. So I have my collapsible chair and an umbrella for sitting on the sidelines of soccer games.

And some reusable grocery bags.

What's in your trunk?
I too drive a van so what's in my way back?
A basket of dd#2's clothing that needs to go to the charity bin, and a cushion from one of our patio chairs that I take to the pool with me for comfort.
And a couple of blankets and 2 "sports mom chairs."

I've always thought that if I got stranded somewhere, I could at least occupy myself looking around at everything left in the van at that time.

Currently in the trunk -
paperback book
jumper cables
few random plastic bags
pair of flip flops - not sure whose
2 large ceramic tiles - forgot to return when I bought them for samples - good for putting messy things on for transporting
few random happy meal type toys
fleece jacket
piece of twine left over from something
probably a few other odds and ends

I drive a Sante Fe, so no trunk per say, and we are renovating, and I am buying new things for the front entryway.. FED UP of keeping brand new items around collecting dust, so now In my truck I have a brand new front entry bench, mirror, shelving unit, shoe rack, carpet, and a few other things. LOL.. I only have one back seat .. After this weekend DH's work should calm down, so maybe I will have my truck back and stop being worried about forgetting to lock my doors.. Thank goodness for tinted windows.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

No trunk, but in the back back, I have a 31 utility title that has a blanket and 3 sweatshirts,mine and my kids- because in the summer I hate when I go to a restaurant or movies and forget a sweatshirt for the a/c. And I hate when I remember mine but the kids are cold and I have to give mine up.
I think I threw sunscreen in there recently.

A collapsible chair-DD is doing travel softball and I'm never sure if there are bleachers at away games.
Bug spray is tucked into the cubby on the side, as is an umbrella.

I don't have anything interesting, but I once had a strange woman in a grocery store parking lot stop me to talk and to show me her dead cat in her trunk...

It was a very unusual conversation.

Several 31 totes, an ice scraper and an umbrella live in there year round... I like the totes for shopping at Aldis or holding messy items I might pick up (pots of flowers, whatever).

Four folding chairs. A can of bug spray. A blanket. We just went to the drive in Friday night. Those will have to go eventually, but we were too lazy to take them out when we got home.
