Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!): Useful Uses for your Camera Phone

Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!)

My goal here is to make your life easier, especially those who are in the unique situation of being a military spouse. Yes...I've been around...but in a good way...and hopefully can share those tips, tricks and shortcuts with you too. I've been on this military bus for over 40 years now. My goals in life are to have a well-run home, few money worries, well adjusted children, money socked away and whatever happiness I can scoop out of life.

After life as an Army brat, being in the Army myself and marrying a soldier, I can honestly say I have a bucket full of life lessons I can share to help you make your everyday life easier and enlightening. Don't waste your time making unnecessary mistakes and benefit from others who have come before you on your journey through life.

Useful Uses for your Camera Phone

Do you have a camera phone? When was the last time you really used the camera part of it? I've had one for about three years now and other than the photo I took and uploaded of my kids to use as wallpaper, I haven't been using it....til recently. Be sure to get the most out of your phone! Here are some useful uses for YOUR camera phone.

  • If you are ever in an accident or witness a car accident, take quick pics of the position of the cars, the damage and license plate numbers of those involved
  • I like to drive around my town and get landscaping ideas; sometimes I don't have my regular camera with me, so if I see something nice, I snap a quick photo out the driver's side window with my camera phone
  • Before you drive that rental car out of the lot, take a photo from all angles; you don't want them to come back later and say you did such and such damage; now you'll have immediate proof it wasn't you
  • When you return your rental car with that full tank of gas, take a quick photo of your fuel tank showing it is on "full" and also the mileage noted; you'd be surprised how often they charge you saying you didn't fill the tank up
  • If you frequently lose your vehicle in the parking lot, take a photo of what row and section you are in; I've also done this at the elevators in the airport; some airports use names of animals rather than colors to show what lots their elevators access and for the life of me, I don't see how it's easier to remember an animal rather than a color
  • If you have kids and are going to a place with crowds, snap a photo of your kids after you get out of the car; if for some unlikely reason you lose track of your kids, you will have an instant photo to show security personnel; sometimes you can get so panicked, you can forget what they are wearing and what they had with them; have them wear a bright color while you are at it too
  • For those fashion plates out there, take a photo of that amazing outfit you just happen to see, whether it's in the store or on a person walking by; if you are snapping a photo of a person, it usually works best to ask if you can snap a photo (just gush about their outfit and most times, they will be flattered and pose)
Do you have any useful uses to share?

It must have been destiny that I found your blog! I got in a fender bender when I drove home from work yesterday. I would have never thought to use my camera phone before. Before, I only used it to take photos of my girls! Thank you!
