Works for Me Wednesday - The Car Edition

This is my first venture into the world of Works for Me Wednesday hosted by Rocks in My Dryer

This week she's looking for hints that make everything related to the car easier.

I have a minivan with FIVE doors that often do not get shut all the way. I end up with a dead battery at least once a month. It used to be a huge hassle. I'd have to call Surferman or the Auto Club for a jump. I would be late. I would get frustrated. Tears were shed.

We invested in a jump box. It lives in our garage and is always ready to come to my rescue. Just pop the hood, hook up the clamps to the terminals (be careful to match the + to the + and the - to the -) and start the car. Perfect!


  1. GREAT tip!! I definitely have to look into one of those. Thanks for sharing!

  2. We SO need one of these. We have the same problem with van doors (and leaving the interior light on.)
