Hello,
Lets check what do you think is essential for such a small space in our fiest's boot.

My boot has:
* Towing rope
* Jump leads
* Set of tools (i think its 40 piece)
* Car snow socks (Just recently bought and will definatelly help me next time when it snow)
* Decicer and Ice/snow scraper
* Cable ties
* Few different types of cloths
* Scissors (probably dont need them)
* Sealer tape (tip from my old mate who is a mechanic)
* Safety vest
* Car fault code reader (havnt used it for this car yet but i know where the plug is)
* Tyre repair kit and inflater (hidden underneath)
* Vacum cleaner (small portable one and i should probably leave in the shed instead)

All stored in a medium sized bag which takes about 1/3 of the whole space :/

Missing things:
* No wheel jack as I have no spare wheel but there is a tyre repair kit instead.

Will need:
* Bulbs (will buy spare ones when one of them fails)
* First aid kit (need to find one cheap)


Let us know whats in your boot.

A big umbrella, end of list.

Oh, and the shaving foam - but that's under the floor.

Nothing. Hate the noise of stuff moving when on the move, also on a mpg mission so no extra weight allowed

I bought Multi Grip Car Snow Socks for 50 + pounds and 8 for delivery. I chose not to buy the cheapest ones and I think I made the right choice because quality looks good. To me its a better option than snow chains with roads and amount of snow here in GB.
