Mommy SOS: I’m Losing My Mind!

Monday , 29, July 2013 2 Comments

Well, not literally, but I am losing all of my stuff…..and that is making me feel like I am losing my mind.  Last week I misplaced a set of keys and my very favorite sunglasses.  I have looked everywhere.  I have back tracked and tried to remember the last time I had them.  I have NO idea where the keys could be.  I was loading the car when I lost them.  I was only walking back and forth between the car and the house.  It shouldn’t be that difficult to locate them.

Unfortunately, this is not a new occurrence for me.  I have been a chronic misplacer my whole life.  My parents had to come bail me out multiple times in high school because I locked my keys in the car.  Unfortunately, it is not a habit I have grown out of.  I guess I just can’t focus on many things at once.  I can’t train myself to consciously put my important things in the same place all the time.  I find my keys wherever I was when I decided I needed an extra hand for something else.  So I have found them on the kitchen counter, dryer, on top of the fridge, on the floor,  bathroom counter, even on the window sill.  I do the same thing with my cell phone and apparently now my sunglasses.

Obviously I need help.  I am, for the most part, a fairly organized person.  Having a child has made me question just how organized, but most of the time I feel pretty good about my organizational skills.  I tend to go a bit crazy, though, when I can’t find something that I KNOW i just had!

Can you help me?  Do you have a system that helps you keep track of all of your important stuff?  If you have a system that works for you, please share!  I need all the help I can get!

    For your keys: Buy a keychain like the Vera Bradley ones (it’s like a beaded bracelet) so you will never actually put your keys down. If you are doing something, you put them on your wrist. Then you need a set place inside your house to hang them. You need to make a point to hang them there and then it will just become a habit!

    I lost my keys once for 6 weeks and found them in a bag i had apparently never emptied after visiting bills parents. I havent done that since. I do have a place for my keys, but i really like the bracelet idea!
