6 Life Hacks to Revolutionize Road Trips

The summer season is winding down, and folks around Woodstock are squeezing in their last road trips before Cherokee County Schools come back in session. Wipe away stress of vacation planning with these 6 road trip hacks that will change the way your family travels.

  1. Sticky Pad for Phones and mp3 PlayersUse a cereal container as a trash can. Plastic cereal containers are the perfect size and shape for a car trash can. Simply line the container with a small trash bag, replace the lid, and open the cereal flap. Voila! A car trash can that won’t spill en route to your beach house.
  2. Plan snacks before you go. Pack small plastic bags with trail mix, goldfish, and other simple snacks to tide you over until you find a great food exit.
  3. Everything in its place. Organization is the key to a smooth road trip. Keep car clutter to a minimum by packing a separate emergency car kit, a not-so-emergency car kit (with baby wipes and children’s tylenol), and an emergency car charger kit. Keep power cords and car chargers from tangling by storing them in an old glasses case in the glove compartment.
  4. Consider your destination. Heading to the beach, the lake, or the mountains? Clean out an old suntan lotion bottle for convenient, waterproof storage for your phone, keys, and other crucial items.
  5. Remember the little things. Avoid a few hundred miles of frustration by investing in a new car air freshener and a sticky pad for your dashboard.
  6. Clean your car. It may seem counterintuitive to wash your car before embarking on a road trip, but vacuumed seats and clean carpets can reduce road trip stress. Other carwash services like a clean windshield and polished headlights might prevent accidents on the road.
