DAMNIT-Can someone create some new fangled key finder?


Recommended Posts

Sigh...I've lost my house keys, car keys, important documents, important phone numbers (gotta love the internet for multiple searches, and a shitload of other things this week. PLEASE can someone become one of those self-made milllionaires(I'm up at 1 am I'll watch the informercial and buy your product) so that I can please find shit half the time?

I even have a little birdhouse to store stuff in. Do I still lose stuff? yep

I don't have AHDH (I don't think!), but I'm middle-aged and have hardening of the arteries, and my hubby is well into senior citizen-hood. We were misplacing our car keys all the time, so I put a key holder right next to the kitchen door. Then I wrote a post-it that said "Hang up your keys!" and put it on the kitchen door.

It took us a few weeks to get programmed, but now the car keys get hung up before we get into the house, so they never get lost.....well, almost never!

We don't lose house keys 'cause we don't have any. ;)

I think you have to program yourself to use your little birdhouse and never deviate from the routine. It's the only way I can keep track of the car keys.

Whever I come in I wack my keys straight in the other side of the door and lock it, and keep the keys in the door, yes its not very safe but it saves loosing them time and time again! although a lot of the time I forget to put them on the inside of the door, shut the door and do whatever only to be alerted to the fact my keys were on the outside of the door by the postman!

I have before now rung the bank and cancelled all my cards thinking my wallet has been nicjked only to find it a few hours later!

gah

My keys are always hung over the spice rack, which is three feet from the door. If not there, they are hung around my neck. Yay, lanyards, and yay for looking like a total geek. My bus pass is there, too. People stare. ;)

Clip your key chain to your cell phone and call yourself up. With your other cellphone.

I'm sure there's a remote control beeper someplace, but then you have to find the remote.

I keep my day's meds in a little metal canister on my keychain, so I have to know where it is. It's always either in my pants pocket, or, in the morning, next to the bag of pill bottles.

I've relegated myself to the cold, hard fact that each time I try and get organized and put things in their 'right' respective places, nothing ever goes into its right place - each item just gets dropped off where the hand feels like dropping it off.

And RE: the meds, I keep mine in a giant, clear organizer box (the damn thing's huge given that I take 6 crazymeds, B3/B6/B12, magnesium, L-tyrosine, and L-carnitine). I used to fight around with having 10+ bottles scattered around, and my "magic happy box of pills", as I call it, has helped out infinitely.

Of course, the biggest drawback is that my box only has one lid (instead of an individual lid over each compartment). I have at least once klutzily (aspie and/or MS-style) flipped the box over while trying to handle it, and spent the next hour putting everything back in its place.

now where'd I put my trazodone,

I have a hook right by the door. As soon as I open the door my keys go on the hook. They don't leave the hook until I'm going through the door again. Keys are the only thing I don't lose.

By the way, a trick with keys. When I go somewhere I am always leaving my coat, purse, notebook, etc. I've helped solve this by always putting my cars key in/on/etc. the thing I don't want to forget. That way I can't drive home unless I have the important object.

The other thing is to say in your head (or out loud if you can get away with it without looking completely crazy) "I am putting my keys (insert location)"

My problem is important papers- I'm always losing them.
