Are you one of those people who are always putting your keys somewhere and then forget where you put them and have to rummage through the house looking for them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could keep track of your keys. The most obvious thing would be to always put your keys in the same place, like on top of your desk, a hook on the wall or anyplace you designate for those keys. For the ladies if you carry a purse you could attack a long chain with your keys on it. For the men you could attack a chain to your wallet or your belt and always have them with you.

99% of the time my keys are always where they should be. Therefore it's usually when I change routines or rushing around feeling flustered that I occasionally lose them.

My keys are usually where I put them on the desk but once in a great while if something has upset me I put them somewhere else and then I have a terrible time trying to remember where I laid them down.

Once in a while I don't remember where I set them down in the house. Sometimes they are in my purse and I still have trouble finding them in there.

So much stuff in the bottom of your purse that you can't find anything, that reminds me I need to clean out my purse soon as I have everything in there except the kitchen sink.

I had 'walking' keys when I was younger. Then I got smart and left them in one place... I hate calling a lock smith! Now I have the best solution! As long as I have the 'fob' in my pocket all I do is push a button and I'm good. I can lose them on my person and it's all good!! The worst experience was back in the days when I left them in the car and then when I came out the car was gone!!

Haha that was a great one. I have another story If I may and you can't stop me. A friend was going back to his car and found somehow trying to open his car. He ask him what he was doing and the man said I fogot my keys inside . He then said to the man sorry I think you ve got the wrong car. The man ran fast as he could away. He was a carnapper.

BernieZ I once had to call a locksmith when my key would not come out of the ignition switch. Oh no you left the keys in the car and when you came out it was gone, was it ever recovered?

I keep my keys always in the same place. I keep mine in a closed compartment of my purse, all the others are in a "key cabinet" near the entry door.

I have misplaced my keys before. But I usually know where they are, I do keep them in the same place all the time. But they have a new device I saw online that connects to your keychain and has an app to work with it. If you lose your keys you can open the app on your phone and find them. I think thats cool.

One good way would be to buy a reeeaaalllyyyyy expensive key ring! If you have something valuable attached to your keys ( assuming those keys are important - like house keys ) you would automatically be more careful about where you place them. Basic human psychology

With me it used to be my glasses until I figured out if I had two pairs I would keep one by my chair in the front room and one in the bedroom then I would know where they were at.

My keys are either in my pocket, or in a bowl on my night table beside my bed. If I put them in my purse they disappear down to the bottom. My mother in law keeps a rack of hooks by her door. Her keys are hung there. Sometimes she still puts them in a pocket or purse and loses them.

That does seem to be the problem with our purses is that things seem to disappear down at the bottom.

@Marcyaz I KNOW! Like, a purse is supposed to be so handy and keep everything a woman "needs" with her, within easy reach. But nothing is ever in easy reach. No matter WHAT you need, it is always at the bottom of the purse!

I have both my sets of keys on a clip so I can attach them to my purse or my backpack (I don't carry my purse when I go to school). Unfortunately, my biggest problem is leaving my keys in the car and locking it because I only remove the car key when I drive and sometimes that dinging doesn't go off when I stop the car. So now my husband has put it on this lanyard so I will see the key before exiting the car.
