North, South, East or West

Map

I’ll admit it. I have a horrible sense of directions. But give me a map (even a bad one) and I can get you just about anywhere you need to go. It’s no big surprise that in addition to the map in my glove box, I totally rely on web sites like Google Maps and Mapquest.

Unfortunately, my memory for directions isn’t great either, so I inevitably need to take them with me. I used to hit the “Print” button and go on my merry way (thus wasting a sheet of paper). However, now thanks to modern technology, you don’t have to fire up the printer every time you need some directions. Both Google Maps and Mapquest have the capabilities to send directions directly to your cell phone. Violà! No need for paper.

If your mobile phone doesn’t have the capabilities for these options (or you prefer your directions written) use a scrap piece of paper instead of a fresh one from the printer, and don’t forget to recycle it when your done.

One thought on “North, South, East or West

  1. Thanks for the tip. I have that dilemma, too and usually end up printing more pages than just the section I need because I forget to highlight that area. I’m definitely going to start having it sent to my cell phone.

    Thanks!
