How Do I Find My Keys?

Have you ever forgotten where you put your keys?

You are ready to go out the door and you cannot locate them.  Has this ever happened to you?

Of course it has, it happens to all of us.  But yet we all know the answer to avoiding this.  The answer lies in putting your keys in the same place every time.   I know that this is hard to do, but if you do it for  21 days, it will become a habit.

This will take some work to do because we often just set stuff down since we carry as many things in the house as we can to avoid repeat trips.   So everything gets placed on the closest surface.

Find a place to keep your items like your purse, cell phone, keys, etc.  Designate a part of a counter, or a small table to keep these things when you are home.   You can keep keys in a dish, on a hook or in your purse.  It will be worth it, especially when you are racing against the clock and trying to head out the door.

While you go out the door and lock it, make a conscious effort to mentally notice that you did so.  You may even want to say to yourself “I am locking the door”.  Why?  So that you don’t climb into the car, start talking to the kids and then think, did I lock the front door? Did I close the garage door?

When multitasking, we cannot give our actions the proper attention to recall the details.   If you take things a little slower, you will be much more at ease.


Thank you for visiting!


  1. Hi Raquel, I’m visiting from the Aloha Friday Blog Hop! I have to admit that my multi-tasking abilities have really been on the decline in the last several years! lol I used to be able to do so much at once and now I can’t remember most things. The kids always say, “Grown-ups don’t remember anything and kids remember everything. I think there’s some truth to that!

    We’re already following each other on Twitter, but I’m now following you on Linky and pinterest as well. Aloha, Renee

  2. So guilty of this. Another problem I have is my purse is so big and there is so much crap in there, it always takes me forever to find my keys…lol I’m your newest follow. Found you on the Aloha Friday Blog Hop. Have a great weekend.

  3. I’ve always done well with my keys (we have a small basket by our front door) but the purse and cell phone don’t have a home and I’ve been known to run in circles looking for those two as well as going back to doublecheck if the door was locked. Great idea to slow down!

  4. Hello from the Aloha Friday Hop! Congrats on being the featured blog!

  5. love the post. I do that, I put my bag and keys in one spot and hubby has almost been killed for moving them, lol. He thinks I am crazy for saying “I am putting my bag and keys away.” So I must show him this post and prove to him I’m not the only one.

    Besides in a small apartment, you need to designate spots and keep everything organized.

  6. Great reminder! I come from “key losers” thankfully hubby is not like that and he is helping me with this “issue” LOL! 😉
