Everyone knows that being a car owner is no easy feat. You have a lot of responsibilities and obligation to your car. Besides the responsibilities that come with owning a vehicle—regular maintenance and oil changes — you’d be surprise of the bills can continue to add up.
Besides getting people to destinations such as north to south, vehicles are used for a ton of other important purposes and activities, like driving your family member to the nearest convenience store or hospital, for instance, or helping us to transport the pile of laundry we have. With all those tasks, it’s no wonder we see so much wear and tear on our vehicle partners.
Here are some cool hacks we can do when it comes to our cars that make it easier than ever to drive. Care to try these tips?

- THE POWER OF DUCT TAPES
Now, duct tapes aren’t just used to cover up parts of your car that has been through an unfortunate accident. If you don’t have a portable vacuum with you and you are having a hard time to clean out the dust in your vehicle, try using duct tapes! Stick out those unnecessary dirt through your duck tapes.
- TRANSPORTING YOUR TAKE-OUT FOOD
When you’re driving home with a fresh-baked pizza pie or even your set of Jollibee favorites, chances are you’ll place it in the empty passenger seat beside you while you drive. The only problem is that it would have the tendency to lean, causing the ingredients for your food to shift to one side. To avoid this from happening, place two water bottles on their side and on top of one another. Then, place your take-out meal in the edge on top of them. Easy peezy right?
- GROCERY SHOPPING
Not only is it messy and such a hassle to place loads of grocery bags in the back of your car, but it’s impossible to transport them into your home all at once. Luckily, there’s a hack for this unfortunate scenario. Keep a laundry basket in your trunk whenever you go out for your daily or weekly grocery. Place all of your grocery bags inside those laundry basket and you can easily carry them into your house!
- GARAGE PARKING
Knowing when to stop your vehicle while parking in your garage is pretty difficult especially to those who are not used to parking. You don’t want to hit any of the walls and have unnecessary expenses to your wallet! Avoid this from happening, tape a tennis ball or any type of soft item to one end of a cord. Then, park your car safely in your garage and hang the cord so the ball lands on your windshield. Once it hits, it’s time to hit your breaks!
These hacks are actually really easy, practical and smart. Help your wallet out by saving up from unnecessary expenses and give your body a little aid. It’s so helpful to have a few less small things to worry about when you drive now.
