She Takes A Photo Of The Parking Garage For A Reason I Never Thought Of - This Is Brilliant!
Rachel Sebastian 6/14/2016
There is no doubt your cell phone camera has gotten lots of use over the span of your trusted phone's life, but there are even more ways to utilize the camera function to make your day-to-day more simplified. The way we can document and organize by using just the camera (and the screenshot function) can turn your photo library into a user guide for your life.
Take A Photo Of The Fridge
Before you head out to do your weekly shopping trip at the grocery store, take a photo of the refrigerator's inventory. This way, you'll have a great idea of what you need more of, and what you already have. This is a great way to end up with the correct groceries, instead of having five jars of pickles and no jam! The same goes for your pantry. Snap a photo of that as well to determine what you're going to need for the week.
Parking Spot Snap Shot
How often do you actually remember where you parked your car? If you are like most, you probably rely on your car alarm to find your way back. While this is somewhat helpful, there is an easier (not to mention less obnoxious) way! Right after parking, take a quick pic of your spot. Try to include the floor and section you park it, which is typically displayed using color codes or symbols in the parking garage.
Rental Car Dents
Renting a car can be stressful business, not to mention an expensive ordeal if you aren't careful. Just ask someone who forgot to fill the gas tank back up before returning the car! While a lot of these extra fees can be avoided, you definitely don't want to get stuck with a repair bill that isn't your fault. Before driving off the rental lot, it's a good idea to snap a few pictures of the car's existing damage.
Remember Cables Before Moving
This photo hack will save you time (and headaches) while you're moving homes. Take a photo of your TV cables before you disconnect them. This way, you'll know exactly where to put them instead of guessing (and guessing some more) before getting it right.
Snap A Business Card Instead Of Taking One
Wherever you go, you're bound to meet new people you'll want to remember. Instead of taking the business card of a new acquaintance, just snap a photo of the card. That way, you're saving paper as well as ensuring you won't loose the contact information before inputting it into your contact list.
Fender Bender Saver
In a rushed fender bender situation, pull out your phone and snap photos of drivers license information and insurance cards, as well as document the damage. The photo will capture all the important stuff so you can be on your way, pronto. The more information you gather upfront results in less hassle later on, too!
Remember Your Gym Schedule
Chances are, the group fitness schedule at your gym is ever-changing. That can make it hard to keep up with printed copies, and checking the website everyday just won't cut it, either. Take a screenshot of the weekly schedule instead, as the screenshot saves to your camera roll. You can even send the photo to a friend to coordinate workout schedules.
Replace Your Go-To Products
There's nothing worse than being at the store and having to guess which shade of concealer you bought last year (and loved!). The same goes for your favorite hair products - remembering the name and shade can be hard to recall. Take a photo of all your go-to products so you can easily replace them - no guessing required.
Document What You Love
When you're in a new part of town (or a new city) and see something that you love, such as a front porch decoration or a creative holiday idea, snap a photo! You can save your favorite ideas to recreate later.
Streamline Your Life
If you're like most of us, you'll always have your smart phone with you, giving you one of the best tools for keeping your life organized. Remember these tips for keeping up with the quickness of life and streamlining your to-do list. You'll be thanking yourself the next time you scroll through your phone's photo album.
