Quick Travel Tip

Airport Parking

I love this tip submitted by an amazing friend and blog follower. The next time you travel, take a picture of your parked car.  Include signage or a landmark so that your spot is easily identifiable. This method beats using the car alarm to find your car after a long trip or just a long day.

I think this idea has many applications including giving visual directions to an event, creating a photo diary of your day, or just making shopping easier.

Great idea, thank you JC!

Would love to hear some of your travel tricks!

Organizing your To-Do list

Have you ever had a to-do list so long you needed another list just to figure out what you were going to do off the first? I love walking into someone’s office/cubical and seeing all the post-it notes covering the walls and desk. Or the kitchen counter with the one list that includes everything: groceries, errands, reminders, even goals.

I recently came across an article discussing Thomas Edison’s to-do list from January 3, 1888.
