I'll play along. In the Mercedes, my usual car, there's a combination tire pumping gadget / emergency light, a blanket (rolled up with a strap around it), two Rubbermaid bins for corralling groceries and packages on the way home from the store, and a Vancouver map book. In the Integra, there's a box that came with the car that contains a small flashlight, tire gauge, and a book about the car. Also a bungee cord. I think that's it.

I don't like to carry around a lot of stuff in the trunk that flies around during spirited driving (gotta love those BMW suspensions ), therefore I usually only have an umbrella, a first aid kit and a spare wheel in there.
