What's in your trunk?

So remember way back when and everyone was showing the contents of their purses? Yeah I missed out on that one. Don't ask me why I didn't do it, because I do have some fun stuff hidden in my purse, but alas it's too late. Instead I thought I'd show you the contents of my car trunk.

Yeah you read that right, my trunk. It seriously has the most random assortment of crap in it right now that I find it pretty amusing. So here goes, currently residing in my trunk is:


  • Clorox clean wipes
  • Two neon colored badminton rackets
  • Two badminton birdies
  • A United States atlas
  • Red fuzzy blanket
  • Cheapo purple umbrella from Target
  • Ginormous box of water bottles
  • Zebra striped bathing suit that's way too big
  • A coffee maker (and I don't even drink coffee)
  • Plug in alarm clock
  • High school sweat shirt

Now if that isn't random stuff I don't know what is. Got anything ridiculous hiding out in your trunk these days?




happy wednesday!

hahahh. i love that you would show your trunk instead of your purse. perfect.

my trunk is like. empty. i think i have an empty bottle of car oil. (obviously car oil, i don't know why i felt it necessary to specify that from like, tanning oil, or olive oil). and a cup. yeah, a cup. cause my car ROCKS and it leaks when it rains hard. so instead of getting that fixed, i use my cup to scoop the water out.. i'm so ghetto.

actually, the entire list of things wrong with my car is here: http://caliente-fusion.blogspot.com/2008/04/i-may-need-new-car.html
it's ridiculous..

You may have inspired me to clean out my trunk, in which I cannot even fit a load of groceries because there are too many clothes, shoes, toys, and law books that I never want to see again stuffed in there.

ps too bad that suit is too big, it's cute.

have a great day!

Do you play badminton? If so, you are sooo awesome! If not, you're still awesome and you should play! I love it. So much fun! I have badminton rackets in my car too!

deutlich said...

That is eerily familiar to what was in my trunk in my last car.. I mean, my graduation gown from HIGH SCHOOL stayed in there for SIX YEARS.

I try to clean the trunk out more often now that I have a Mazda..

Try, being the key point.

That's awesome!

My truck is actually empty right now (first time in a while!) except for two things--my practice shoes and wraps for circus training. Granted, I haven't trained in about two months, and I rarely use either items, but still! You never know when I'll need them!

Love the new header, and the coffeemaker totally makes this picture! I don't have a trunk at the moment :(

lspoon said...

My trunks are all spotless. I don't know why b/c it's so unlike me to have anything be spotless.

Jenn said...

My trunk is ridiculously empty. I think I have some winter floor mats in there, my snow brush and possibly some kitty litter.

Dana said...

OMG... My trunk is such a mes right now cause I still have stuff in it from school!! I have mutliple wallpaper books for crafts... My teacher bag, a laptop bag, a small bow, my nebulizer, a sweatsuit, and an empty J. Crew bag.. I am messsssy! Usually I am much neater and organized.. Oh well...

Great post!

L Sass said...

HEY... I need a coffee maker!

heidikins said...

Hahaha, that's classic. My trunk has like 2 things in it; a 72 hour kit and a bag of old clothes to donate to Good Will. My trunk, clearly, is nowhere near as exotic as yours. :o)

Vanessa said...

The Clorox clean wipes are my ALL TIME FAVORITE cleaning product!

brookem said...

Lisa said...

Your trunk is a hell of a lot more organized than my home. That's something.

I like turning to random pages of the atlas and looking at cities.

I need a hobby.

I took my car into the shop because it was making a strange noise and what they told me was to clean out my trunk because the only noises were coming from the junk in my trunk. In particular a step stool that keep rolling around in the trunk and making a ton of noise.

aschlee said...

Hah I love it! I think I might snag your idea from you (don't worry I'll give you all the credit) :P

Seriously though friends 'n I have talked about the contents of our trunks before 'n it's always so random. Mine usually consists of clothes, lol. So now I totally have to do a post about my trunk ...love the idea :P

Auburn Kat said...

It's amazing the things one can accumulate in their trunk! It's also really interesting see what other people have in their trunks! I'm going to have to post a pic of mine someday, granted there is only a blanket and a bottle of oil in it right now.

Bedroom Talk said...

haha your trunk is clean compared to mine...so sad. I swear I have a sleeping bag, 2purses, 1gym bag, 1 teddy bear, snowboarding boots and text books!!!! Ahh the life of a college student I try to avoid clearing it out becuase I'm some how convinced tht I'll need these items one day on emergency. lol

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

such a fun post, but i fear my readers would be completely disgusted if they were to see the inside of my trunk!

Julie said...

I don't own a car, but if I did I would show you things in my trunk.

I love the random stuff in your trunk though! Especially the coffee maker and the badminton stuff.

Grits said...

In the cab of my truck: 4 cd wallets, emergency roadside assistance kit, air freshener, jumper cables, random box of magazines and more! It's time for an old fashioned car wash party!

Alexa said...

oh this is an excellent post idea!

i don't have too much in my trunk right now because my ride is still kinda new....

but god knows im going to look in my trunk tomorrow morning just to see : )

Larissa said...

I missed the purse content bandwagon too. Maybe this concept will evolve (or devolve) into the contents in bloggers' bathroom medicine cabinets.

Tipp said...

I AM SO doing this!! Yea!

LBIC said...

Ever since I got a car I've had a Tupperware full of napkins, toilet paper, windex, clorox wipes, and garbage bags. I also have a bag with a spare set of shoes and clothes, a blanket and another bag full of toiletries, just in case I've just randomly driven to Miami on the spur of the moment (which i've done at least five times).

Nico said...

interestingly i have a high school sweater AND Clorox wipes in my trunk, too.

but i also have music equipment, so i guess there's that distinguishing feature.

Jamie said...

hahah oh gosh. i have one pair of black heels, couple blankets, a winter wool coat, some shirts and a sweater. I think there are a couple of weights in there too.

I'm a mess!

nerdgirlsspace said...

Kim Thomas said...
