There’s no shortage of cool gadgets to help you find lost items, but lost cars? Not so much. I’m not quite sure if it’s that I’m getting older or I’m trying to do too many things at once, but lately, I’ve been forgetting where I park my car. Like even for quick runs into the grocery store.

If you’re like me, here’s a simple tech trick to ensure you never lose your car again.

Here is my awesome trick: Use your smartphone camera. Yep, that’s it.

Take a photo of where you parked, particularly the letter and/or number of the spot, and then you’re all set for when you return, keys in hand.

Just make sure you photograph a permanent point of reference since the people parked next to you might leave before you get back. And of course, this is all moot if your phone is dead. Make sure you’re charged! Kristen
