Road trip hacks video&text


Lifestyle expert Erica Katz has some helpful hacks to make your road trips easier. First, keep a cooler handy. You can pack called drinks, sandwiches anything you want. And then you can use it like a table.

For those long trips you may want to nap in your car. If you get tired, pull off to the side of the road and find somewhere quiet. And then take your raft out of the trunk throw it in the backseat of your car. And then you have a nice cozy bed.

And if you have a car full of kids. When you have to sit in traffic in a road trip, the kids can get really antsy. Here’s a helpful hack. Fill up an empty coffee creamer container with cereal. Or how about this hack for a healthy snack. Try filling a container with peanut butter and celery it’s delicious and the kids will love it.

Nobody wants drinks spilling everywhere. Don’t have a lid for your drink? Use some plastic wrap to put on your drink. Make it nice and secure. No spills.

Finally, be prepared for the unexpected. You never want to go on a road trip without a set of jumper cables. Just in case you break down. And keep the instructions in the glove compartment so you know how to use them.

There you have it. Helpful tips for your July 4th road trip. Look at this bumper-to-bumper. I can’t believe it.
