How I'm Managing My Time With QuickTrip App

My life is busy, extremely busy, and as a mother of four it sometimes seems like there's not enough minutes in the day. When it comes to time management I have to admit that I'm the worst, but I'm truly getting better now that I'm using Allstate's QuickTripp App.

I can't begin to tell you how many times I have made a to-do list that never gets finished. It's not because I don't want to finish it, but the time to get it all done just seems nonexistent. I go to the supermarket at least 3 times a week, and once again, it's not because I NEED to go, however, there is always something missing from my list that makes me have to go back. Between my time at the grocery store, I of course have to stop in a few of my favorite stores before it's time to pick up Madison from school. When I look back at it now, I truly wasted a lot of my time, doing almost next to nothing. There has to be an easier way to get it all done right? There is, it's called QuickTrip and I have been using it. It helps me get to point A to point B, quickly and easily eliminating all that wasted time.

So how have I been learning time management with QuickTrip and what exactly IS QuickTrip?

Allstate's new app QuickTrip, is a route planning app that optimizes my to-do list and saves me time with smarter, multi-stop routes. And guess what? It's totally free! It is also really easy to use. I just add what I want to do throughout the day, the times I want to get it done, and where it will be done. The app also has an "Optimize Route" option that re-orders my day so that I could have the most efficient route possible. It makes it so much easier to check items off my list as I go.

Syncs Calendar
We all live in a technological world and while I would write items in my calendar, I didn't always remember to get them done. You can however, synch your calendar to the app, so everything is in one place. With everything right there before me on the app, with driving directions to each place, it's so much simpler. You can choose between Apple maps, Google maps or Waze to get your driving directions.

Vehicle Maintenance Reminders
Here's one of my all-time favorite features. I am no good when it comes to vehicle maintenance. I can NEVER remember when stuff needs to get done. The app allows you to either scan or enter your vehicle's VIN manually and it sends you reminders and even vehicle recalls! I like to call this app my personal assistant. Not even my husband reminds me about stuff like this.

This has really been a time management saver for me. I have been adding additional items on my to-do lists because now I know I can get them done. With QuickTrip finding the smartest and shortest way to get them done, no task is out of reach anymore.

So save time and download QuickTrip available for free in the App store.

  1. I am so off to check this app out as anything that can help cut down time when I am shopping and such is a huge plus and benefit to me. Thank you for sharing about it here :)

  2. I have to check this out! I am always on the run, and I'm ALWAYS just on the edge of being late to every place I'm headed.

  3. It seems like I am constantly going shopping. I always forget something. If that App can help me get everything done, save time and not forget things it will be for me.

  4. On top of the time/organization benefits this looks like it could save you money on gas by not going all over the place and is a much more eco-friendly way to get all those errands done :)

  5. I am down to try anything that will help me better manage my time. IT seems like I am always forgetting something and having to rush around with too much to do!

  6. This app sounds like just what I need. I love that it helps with your route through the day. Definitely efficient and awesome!

  7. This is cool! I would love an app like this that saves me time. Organization is key in a busy life with kids and everything else!

  8. OK now this sounds like an awesome app. I am forever forgetting to do something, my organisational skills are awful, so something like this could be a huge help!

  9. This app sounds really helpful for people with busy lifestyles. The car maintenance reminders would be helpful for me.

  10. This is a great app! It takes multiple apps to keep me on track and they barely do that. Now, just to remember to actually do what the notifications tell me to do.

  11. I need this my life, without a doubt. It's really awesome that it syncs to your calendar and gives your the BEST possible route. As a teacher, a blogger, and a wife, it's tough to balance it all out especially when you have a lot of errands for the day. I'd love an app that helps me through it all.

  12. I have two boys that I need to take to school and then go run some errands after. It's a daily routine and it would be nice if I finished faster. This app seems to be the perfect solution for that! I'm checking this out for sure!

  13. First of all, can we talk about how AMAZING your hair color is?! I've never heard of this app. It sounds like something I could really use. Especially the car maintenance reminder.

  14. This sounds like a great app! I will definitely check this out!

  19. As a full time student with a job and planning a wedding AND running a blog...I need this app! It is so hard to keep things in line and this seems like it would really help!

  20. This sounds like an app that I need in my life. I'm definitely going to check it out!

  21. This looks like a great app for time management! I'm always running all over the place!

  22. This app sounds like a lifesaver. I try to run my errands in the most efficient way possible but sometimes that doesn't always account for traffic so this would be really helpful.

  23. I definitely need this! My time management skills can leave a lot to be desired. I'm known for going out twice because I forget something the first time. And all the driving is nuts!

  24. This is a great app for people with AllState Insurance. I am glad they added this extra service for their customers!

    1. That's the great thing about this app, it's not just for Allstate Insurance members, it's for everyone. Download it and give it a try.

  25. Wow, that is GENIUS!!! This would be great for someone like me. I know I probably waste time and gas running errands. Thanks for sharing!
