daily task 23 a place for your keys


My Tips and Advice:

Ask most people what they lose the most often, and the answer will undoubtedly be their keys.

You want to be able to find your keys as soon as you need them – when walking out of the house, or when you need to open a back door etc.. and if you can’t put your hands on them immediately, the search can be very draining.

Especially if this search is a daily, or even more often, event.

The answer is beautifully simple though.

If you create a specific place for your keys, and then get into the habit of putting them back every time you walk through the door, or use them, then that stress will be a thing of the past. - Doing my shopping online allows time for more important things. Like, finding my keys.

One thing to note however – a few years back we were broken into in the middle of the night – the burglars were after the car keys. When the police came round they told us that its safest to leave keys where they are easily accessible, but still not visible from the front door.

Basically – you don’t want anyone to see your keys and make them an easy target – but if you are very unlucky like we were, and burglars get into your home looking for keys specifically – it is best to have them somewhere where they can grab them and go – after all – its just a car.

The other reason to have them accessible is in case of emergency – if you had a babysitter in the house, or there was a fire – then they or you could easily find and grab the keys and get out.

It sounds all doom and gloom I know – but better to be safe than sorry.


What could be used to store your keys?

Store them where you would logically want to find them – by the front door and easily accessible (but just out of sight of course) – the links below are just examples of the type of thing available:-
