I'm always losing receipts that I need to keep, so now I still keep the originals, but take photos of the receipts and keep in a folder on my phone or desktop.
Here are some other ideas:
When a smartphone is connected to a car, you are basically sharing your personal information like your call logs, phone numbers, contacts, messages and your GPS locations. It is best to not connect your smartphone to a car that is not yours, especially a rental. If you do, please make sure to erase all your information and clear the history.

Editor's Note: This tip is Bluetooth or other built in systems that connect directly to a car. Charging your phone using a 12v "cigarette lighter" style socket is safe because these do not transmit information to your car's computer system.
A tempered glass screen protector will be your best friend and help prevent your smartphone from breaking, shattering and scratches. For less than $10, you could easily install the thin screen protector yourself. The kit comes with everything you need.
The tempered glass screen protector helps with minor drops, scratches, shatters. And if your phone drops hard and shatters, it will shatter the tempered glass before your phone's screen. The investment of spending less than $10 bucks is definitely worth it, compared to hundreds of dollars for a new replacement screen! Plus, you are improving the resale value of your phone if you plan on selling or upgrading in the future!
*Price varies depending where you purchase your tempered glass screen protector. In stores, you are looking at $20 bucks. However the ones found on Amazon and eBay work just as great and are usually less than $10 bucks for a 2 pack! The protectors from Amazon is where I purchase mine!
