Do you travel with a first aid kit?

Recent natural disasters have persuaded me to have a first aid kit in my car. Not only is a kit great to have around in any emergency (major or minor), my first aid kit provides a peace of mind knowing that I will be prepared if something were to happen. Most often used element of my kit: antiseptic wipes and band aids!

So, I want to know...

one in the house, one in the car, one in my purse (hubby and i are very accident prone!!). my purse kit only has bandaids, antiseptic wipes and gauze, so it's tiny enough to fit in my giant "work purse".......along with every cosmetic known to man, 7000 packs of gum and mints, and the essentials -- keys, phone and wallet. LOL. seriously though, it's good to have the first aid kit -- you never know when you'll get a boo-boo!

I really need to buy one for my home and car, especially since I live in Florida. I do keep a blanket, water, pillow, and jumping cables in my trunk though. I can't tell you how many times my blanket and pillow have come in handy. Luckily I don't have to get out of my car to get to my trunk.

I should, but I don't. I do have one under my bed, though.

Yea! At like walgreens or small drug stores, they sell those minature ones with all the basics.

Yes, it's in our car. Costco does have a great one, I think that's where ours came from. It's important to have a flashlight, too. AND, don't forget to check the expiration dates on the medicines that come in there - mine usually expire before I use them and then I have to refill it.

My husband and I have a first aid kit with road flares and other items in each of our cars. I have a first aid kit at home, and I have one that I take traveling. Besides having bandaids, etc, my travel kit also has Tums, Sudafed, anti-histamines, and anything else that would save me from having to search for a drugstore.

Great idea for everyone. I've been carrying a small 1st aid kit in my car since I was 16. This one not only has the needed band-aids and anticeptic wipes, but also a road flare and other "please don't run me over on the side of the road" warnings for other drivers to see you are in distress. My husband and I keep at least 2 kits in the house as well. I'm pretty sure he was a boy scout in a former life!

I have one, but only because it came with my XTERRA. I'm not sure what's in there, but I really should take a look this weekend.

i have a small one with mainly bandages, safety pins, disinfectant wipes and those kinds of things that i take with me on plane trips and then a much bigger one for hiking/camping trips. i always end up needing something from either kit - especially bandages!

I should really get one. I used to have one in my car but I don't know where it is now. Anyone have any suggestions where I can get a good one for my car?

I have a car emergency kit that comes with first aid kit, hammer, flash light, jumper cables etc. I do carry an 8.5oz bottle of water in my purse every i go though. ever since 911 and since i work in a city...i think it is just one step i can take to maybe helping myself.

I do have one in my car, but it needs to be restocked, there isn't any medicine left in there, just band-aids and latex gloves.

growing up my parents had one, but now that I am older and taking vacations on my own...I should probably think about getting one!

A girl scout at heart, I have a big one (fairly affordable set from Sam's) stashed in my trunk and a small one for my carry-on bag when I travel by air. I can't count the number of times that they've come in handy -- mostly for other travelers, but helpful nonetheless.
