There are a few things about myself that I just know. One is that when I take a trip, I never take enough clothes; I’m an underpacker (that’s a subject for another post). Another thing I know is that if I’m in the car driving and I hear the ding of a new text or a call coming in, it takes everything I have not to sneak a peek. And I know that’s bad. We’ve all heard, “don’t text and drive,” and for the most part people probably don’t but now it seems that we have moved onto the next stage which is just looking at the phone. Like a new message or a Facebook feed. This is called distracted driving. And I know just plain looking at the phone like this is going to get me in trouble one of these days.
I know that the different car insurance companies and other sites have done a lot of studies on this topic here, here, and here and there’s even a website dedicated to it here. I even saw one insurance company asking people to put a red piece of tape around their thumb to show their commitment! Really?? Umm, just no to that.
Clearly no one has the answer so I started doing something I do when I buy McDonald’s French Fries. I know I can’t stop my hands from stuffing a few fries in my mouth here and there on the drive home, so a few years ago I started putting the whole bag of food in my truck so I wouldn’t be tempted. So with this action in mind, I recently started putting my whole purse, including the phone, in the trunk so I wouldn’t be tempted.
And since it’s in the trunk I don’t even hear the phone go “ding” anyway!
So I thought I would see if I can get a few of readers to keep from being distracted when behind the wheel and partake in a #TrunkMyPurse campaign. As in, before you get in the car, put the purse in the trunk, and then be on your way.
And as an incentive, I’m attaching a contest to it! There will be 3 winners – 1 big winner and 2 runner-ups. And believe me, the prizes will be pretty amazing! I’m cleaning out the beauty closet to make way for all the spring and summer releases and all the new, unused, mostly (about 95%) full sized products must go!
