How To Keep Your Keys Safe: 4 Basic Tips
Misplacing your keys is inevitable and it happens to all of us at some point. Here’s 4 quick and simple ideas about how you can make them stand out and easier to find.
1. Leave your keys in an obvious place
You have a designated place for your keys, but somehow, you always end up putting them somewhere else.
Instead of trying to train yourself to put your keys where you think they should be, just let your subconscious win. Create a small space for your keys wherever you automatically put them the most, even if it doesn’t make any sense at first.
2. Make your keys stand out
We tend to notice colorful and shiny things first, so add a bright pop of color or a little sparkle to your keys and make them stand out from the rest of your stuff.
It doesn’t need to be a large fluffy keychain, it can be as simple as a few short colorful ribbons or a brightly colored lanyard.
3. Keep your keys on a leash
If your problem is keeping track of your keys outside your home, try an old-school approach and keep your keys attached to you with a lanyard or a chain.
You can attach a colorful lanyard to your keys and leash them to the inside of your bag or backpack. This will help you find them even more quickly, since they’ll pop out as soon as you open your bag.
Or have a little fun and try a pocket chain. You never know, it might just be the fashion accessory you’ve been missing!
4. Use a smart key finder
If you like the idea of a key leash, but you don’t want something hanging from your pocket or bag all the time, get a Chipolo smart key finder.
You can attach the colorful round little tracking tag to your keys and then connect it to the Chipolo app on your phone.
The next time you can’t find your misplaced keys, you can ring the Chipolo attached to them from the Chipolo app on your phone.
Even better, the Chipolo will remind you if you ever leave without your keys, with a notification on your phone!
