Lost Your Keys?

Trying to rush out the door or gathering your things to leave the office – grab your keys and go, right? Where are your keys? Oh no, not again! Not being able to put your hand on your keys at this critical time can be so frustrating.

How can you be assured that this doesn’t happen again. Here are some tips to help you.

  • Create a habit of always storing your keys in the same place, whether on a hook near the front door or basket on the entry table.
  • Attached a brightly colored key chain to your keys to make them easier to spot.
  • Have two sets of spare keys. Store one set in your desk drawer and give one set to a neighbor.
  • If all else fails, purchase a key locator, like this one, or this one, which use a transmitter to set off an alarm or a sound activated locator, like this one. Kind of like a clapper.
