Losing your essential belongings is a big problem in the modern world. We now carry so many little items daily, such as our phones, keys, wallets, earphones, and glasses – the list goes on! With our busy lives, It’s no wonder we constantly lose our things. This article will provide a few ideas for places you should keep your belongings to avoid losing them in the future.

Make a home for your things

A great way to avoid losing your belongings is to give them their own specific home within your home. You can do this in many different ways, so you are sure to find a place that works for you. The most important thing is that you find a routine and make it automatic to place your items there. That way, you know where they will always be.

Below are some common ideas for places you may like to keep your things, but these are just our suggestions. If you have something that already works for you, that is perfect!

Key hooks

Some people like to have a wooden board with hooks on it that they can hang their keys on when they first walk in the door. With a key hook system, you never need to stress about finding your keys when you are running late, as you always know where they will be. It’s especially easy as you can hang your hooks right by the door, so it’s the first thing you see and do when you walk into your home. Key hooks work especially well if you live with multiple people and occasionally want to use each other’s keys. With key hooks you always know where the keys will be – even if they aren’t your keys!

A bowl for all of your miscellaneous goods

Other people may like to have a big bowl to store all their possessions. This is great as it can be used to store all kinds of things. You can keep keys, wallets, earphones, glasses – whatever you like! It’s good to keep the bowl somewhere you walk past when you first come into your house – such as the kitchen or the lounge. However, it’s a good idea to keep your bowl out of sight from windows, otherwise, you could inspire would-be criminals with a clear view of all your prized possessions.

Side table

Using a side table works much the same as having a bowl. Have a table by the door or in the lounge where you can put everything. This will provide easy access to your belongings right before you leave your home.

All about routine

The best way to make sure these tips work is to make it a part of your routine so that you place your things in their spot without even needing to think about it. If you can make it a subconscious thing that you do automatically, you’ll never need to stress about wondering where you put your things again.
