Beverages Report Abuse
It’s better to pay $4 for a 12-pack of soda than it is to buy a single can for $0.89 at the gas station.

Snacks Report Abuse
Make sure they are easy to eat while driving and produce as little refuse as possible (a can of roasted peanuts is better for road trips than, say, nachos).

Tape recorder Report Abuse
Especially if you’re driving solo, a tape recorder is a much safer way to get down “notes to self” that may cross your mind as you drive.
