How to Organize Constantly Misplaced Items


You are all ready to leave the house when you suddenly realize you don’t have your keys! Does this sound familiar? Searching for misplaced items could set your day back and leave you frustrated. According to U.S. News and World Report, the average American spends one year of their life looking for lost or misplaced items. Do you want to be able to find your personal belongings within seconds? We will provide you with handy tips that will prevent you from losing important items.

  • Keep Spaces Clutter Free – This will help you see your missing items easily. You’ll be less stressed finding things when your environment is organized and clean.
  • Create a Landing Zone – This is an area where you will drop off your personal belongings as soon as you enter your home or office. This is also where you will pick up your items before you head out. Have a designated area like a tray, bowl, basket, or even a wall-mounted key holder.
  • Keep Spares – Keep things like spare keys and spare glasses in one assigned place in your house. This will help alleviate stress when you are in desperate need.
  • Use Apps to Find Phone – Install Find My iPhone or Find My Lost Phone on your smartphone. This app will allow you to track the location of your smartphone or tablet.
