Overnight Emergency Kit

Overnight Emergency Kit
If you haven’t read, Why you should always Trust your Mommy Instinct, take a step back to our baby having surgery back in November 2014. That incident was what sparked me to create my “emergency kit” as I like to call it. I realized, that if my husband had been out of the country for work at the time, I would have not had a “kit” readily available. I would have had to walk a friend through my house and my bathroom to find things I needed for an unexpected stay at the hospital. As it was, I had to list out what I wanted and send my husband home to get them…and he still had to call to find things, and to remember my list. It was a good thing it was him rummaging through my stuff though, as I would have been embarrassed if I had to send a friend to my house.
So, once the whole ordeal was over and we were home safely, I realized I needed a plan. I needed to create a kit that was all put together and readily accessible to anyone I sent to my house, including my husband. It was only a few days later that I was browsing our local stores for travel-size items and a bag to put them in.
Overnight emergency kit- travel products are the best Here is a list of what is in my kit, and a few things I think would be a great optional addition:
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Body Wash
  • Gel (my hair is CURLY and in need of these items!)
  • Hairspray (my hair is CURLY and in need of these items!)
  • Deodorant
  • Contact Solution
  • Contact case
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Hair Brush
  • Wet wipes (maybe a bit TMI, but hospital toilet paper sucks…)
  • Hair ties
Most of these items I found in the travel section! They are not only perfect size to travel with, they are perfect and inexpensive to make this kit! A few additional optional items I think would be a great addition are as follows:
  • Spare set of contacts (just in case!)
  • Extra cell phone wall charger
  • Book or crossword puzzle
  • Feminine hygiene products (stress can set off an unexpected lady issue!)
  • Toilet Paper (if your bag is big enough and allows this)
  • Cash (for early morning/late night coffee shop/snack bar in the lobby runs or room service)
  • Hand sanitizer (you can find this in the travel section as well)
My kit has the bare necessities, but I am thinking about adding a few extra items that I listed above, since I have a little bit of extra room in my bag. All I have to do is tell someone where my bag is, and have them grab my eyeglasses/case and I am set.

 Are you prepared? What would you add to an emergency kit?
