The cool weather is just around the corner and we want to be ready. Even though let’s be honest, it doesn’t get too cold in Houston we still love to be prepared for those days and prepared in all aspects.
So today I’m sharing 3 tips on how we prepare our cars for winter or just those days where parenthood gets the best of you.
- Have a winter supply box. This is very important and it will vary for everyone and every state. We have an extra change of clothes for both girls, gloves for all of us, food, water, toilet paper, and paper towels, a heavy blanket, flashlight and 1-2 toys at the bottom of the bag. We also have diapers and baby wipes. We put ours in the truck of the truck in this neat Clevermade basket.
- Make sure your car is up to date in all inspections. Most states require your car/ truck to be inspected yearly but you can always go the extra mile and have a car tuneup when cooler weather gets close.
- Use the top oil for oil changes. This is key. Both of our cars are paid off and we keep up with all their maintenance to the t. This way we assure ourselves we are taking care of them. But this can get very expensive that’s why we take advantage of great deals on our oil changes. We use Rotella Truck oil in my husband’s new truck and it has been running amazingly.
And because I love saving make sure you go to your local Walmart and check for the #rotellagastruckrollback for extra savings. Keep in mind that if you are like me and don’t know anything about cars Walmart service is always available and can be done while you grocery shop.
