I would lose my head if....

Well you know the rest of that saying. I am wondering if anyone know some good tips to help me stop loosing my keys. Maybe I'm the only one but I feel like I am always looking for them. Today as I was leaving the gym I was sure that I locked them in the car. I embarassingly had to tell the receptionist and I proceeded to call AAA. Keep in mind that this did actually happen to me over the summer so I know that AAA can do this service. Then as I waiting I noticed that my coat was hanging on a hook and I didn't remember bringing it in. So quietly I put it on and realized that they were in the pocket. Slowly I left without saying anything to anyone and snuck into my car hoping nobody would see me drive away. How embarassing! Well thinking that I may not be the only one I googled How to stop loosing you keys and here's the tips I found.

1. Designate a place to keep your keys and NEVER put them anywhere else. I feel like this one is a no brainer. Why is it that I can't do this?

2. Repeat to yourself where you left your keys. So for my example at the gym, I should have been thinking coat pocket, coat pocket, coat pocket.

3. Keep a spare set just in case. Of course I don't have one.

4. Try a Carabiners Clip. This seems like it may be the first actual idea but I want to look for something cuter. I'll be doing that tonight, etsy maybe?
So these do seem like common sense but obviously I'm not doing them if I still can't ever find my keys.

I have a basket in the kitchen specifically for keys. does the husband ever put them there? nuh uh. He repeatedly places them right NEXT to the basket, which irks the bejeezes outta me. I just keep mine in my purse...

Isn't there a key chain gadget that will make a beep if you clap your hands? Thought about getting one, but was afraid my girls' high pitched screams would set it off too much!

You wouldn't believe how many times I've locked my keys in the car. And a few times, with kids (strapped into car seats) along with them.

I park in the garage at home, so I always leave the keys in the ignition. When I'm out I always throw them into my purse. It sometimes take a few minutes of digging to find them in that mess, but at least I know where they are!
