Looking For Lost Items
I spent a good part of the weekend looking for a pair of glasses. Isn't that so frustrating when you lose something important?
Newsweek says the average American spends 55 minutes a day searching for missing items. That's about 12 days a year, wasted, looking for things!
The Time Management Ninja website https://timemanagementninja.com/2013/10/10-steps-to-stop-wasting-time-looking-for-lost-items/ offers some good tips for keeping organized so we don't lose stuff. The one that jumps out at me is this: "Take 10 Steps to Put It Away – Chances are when you set something down, you are probably 10 steps or less from where it should go. Take those 10 steps to the drawer where it belongs. Or 10 steps to the garage to put that tool back in the tool chest. 10 Steps now might save you hundreds later when you have to clean the entire house."
What's the item you lose most often? For me it's keys and my glasses.
How do you usually reconnect with your lost thing? Do you retrace your steps? Ask your spouse to help find it? Have you tried any of those Bluetooth locator devices like the Tile?
