What do you have jammed in your hatchbacks spare tire storage compartment?



I might have a problem! Can anyone top what I have in my hatchback's storage compartment with the spare tire?
  • First Aid Kit
  • 12v air compressor
  • small socket set
  • spare headlight, parking and brake light bulbs
  • hitch ball moutn & pin
  • cheapo torque wrench + impact sockets
  • auto emergency kit (with the usual stuff)
  • Thule snow chains
  • tow strap
  • two ratchet straps
  • lined nitrile gloves
  • 2l of water
  • tire slime (came with the compressor, only for a last resort!)
  • replacement bumper kits that I haven't installed yet
  • replacement serpentine belt.

Yes, it all fits under the board with the spare in place! There is also a small plastic shovel under the back seat.

Anyone got me beat? Anything I should add?

I have winter tires. So far so good. And I don't really need any of that stuff in the spare tire well. I don't go anywhere where I'm more than 2 minutes away from any sort of help...

They're also 3x the price I paid for the chains! I've also never had to use them and likely won't ever use them (fingers crossed!) They were an an end of season steal!

I'd rather leave it all in my car than in my way too small apartment! But we do regularly go places with absolutely no cell phone coverage so I figured I'd keep most of it there.

I had winter tires in Ottawa, but I haven't yet had to drive in snow yet this year. I think I may get all weather tires when my current set of all seasons wear out.
