A Home for Everything
If you establish a permanent home for things you often misplace, you’ll have a better chance of creating a habit and routine so this never (or rarely) happens again. Mount a hook near the front door for your home and car keys (even the storage locker key can live there.) Right after you gain entry to the health club or use a credit card, put it back in your wallet where you always keep it. Trust me, if you put it in your back pocket, you might scramble to find it and be panicked until it surfaces on laundry day when you retrieve it from your dirty jeans! Don’t just set the scissors or letter opener down on a table or desk but put them back in the cup holder or in the drawer organizer so you can find them the next time you need them!
