Tips for your journey
Making life on the go a little easier.
Whether you’re running errands, picking up the kids, or taking a trip out of town, here are a few simple tips, tricks and short cuts to help make your life on the go just a little bit easier.
Get the best directions
If you get lost and need directions, look for a restaurant that offers delivery – delivery drivers always know their way around town.
Remember where you parked your car
Whether you’re parking in an unfamiliar neighborhood or a new city, to remember where you parked your car, drop a “pin” on your mobile map.
Prevent key confusion
To identify keys quickly and easily, use nail polish to paint the tops different colours.
Organize the toys
To keep toys and books organized and within easy reach for your kids, hang a shoe organizer on the back of the seats.
Keep take-out food warm
Turn your seat heater on to keep take-out food warm. To keep pizza toppings from shifting on the drive home, slide a bottle of water under the box to keep it level.
Protect your doors
