WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR JUMPER CABLES?

We have a great set of heavy duty jumper cables.  We keep them in the garage, that way we always know where they are.  We may need them when we're stuck in a parking lot 100 miles from home in the middle of a dark and stormy night, but at least we know where they are.  Unfortunately the jumper cables are not the only things we keep in the garage.  We can't locate them right now, but we know that we have a set of really great, heavy duty jumper cables in the garage, somewhere.... under all the other stuff in the garage.  We had to borrow our neighbor's cables.  They know where their cables are.  They keep them in their garage,  their nice, neat garage.  They don't keep anything else in their garage.  Just their jumper cables, so they know where they are.

I have jumper cables in my van..and dh has his in his car....usually when I need to use them, there is no one around to help me, so it really doesn't matter where I keep them!

We had a set that was on the freezer in the garage attached to a battery charger but we built shelves in the garage and I haven't seen them since.  Of course we haven't needed them either.

Right now we have just one set, and I'm not sure which one of our vehicles it is in.  I'd be willing to bet, though, that it's not in the next one that needs a jump!

Given that I was standing in the "wee willie" line when they handed out neatness genes, I sympathize. I finally broke down and spent the extra $$ for a set to be kept in the trunk of the car, leaving the other set in the plow truck. Seeing as seeing them in the gloom of the garage by flashlight is nigh on impossible.

So where were they when I needed to jumpstart the other car? On the floor of the plow truck. And the jumpers from the truck were in the trunk of the other car that hasn't moved in two years. Go figure!
