So how do you guys prevent yourself from losing everything?!

So I lost the stylus for my phone. So I bought two more because, again I lose everything. Lost one of those. Then found one of them, so back to two. And now I cannot find any of the 3!

I have a smart watch and only use the function "find my phone". All my ID and cards are digital so i only pay by "tapping" my Phone. So dont need a wallet. Have changed all the locks on the doors to code locks so i dont need keys. So, if i could find my watch and remember to charge my Phone everything would be good 😄

It was common for me to lose my wallet. Luckily I haven’t lost it for a good few years now. Hope I didn’t jinx my streak by stating it here 😁. Before I walk out of the house, or leave a place, or get into my truck I go through the drill of “Keys, Wallet, & Phone”. And I have to either physically see it or touch them before I move on with my day. Anything else is replaceable.

I ordered Tile stickers and have them on my iPhone, iPad, my “Go Bag / Daily Essentials Kit” with various first aid, back up meds, and “you never know” items. I have an AirTag hidden in my car, on my key ring, and in my carryon suitcase. I had the same issue with Apple Pencils, so I found a case with a really secure holder. My last case kept dropping my pencil.

Love this idea. I’m going to have to do this for my wife. We have to use the “Find my phone” app to find her phone within our house at least 3-4 times a day because she sets her phone down pretty much anywhere. She once lost her keys (one and only set) at a department store. $700 later we now have two sets😄.

That's actually pretty smart with the case. I have the Tile stuff included in my car and all the batteries need replacing haha

I always end up putting things in safe spots and never remember those safe spots. One time my phone was placed in the shoe organizer behind the door. Once in college I lost my glasses... Found them three days later in the middle of the roadway in the parking garage. I guess everyone drove around them because they were not broken at all. Once I lost my key to my apartment in college... Found the keys because I guess someone ran them over and the ring bent so I was able to see.the reflection of the streetlight against it.... Well I guess my ADHD superpowers also found the keys lmao 🤣

I always try to make it my business to designate a specific place for something if I don't want to lose it. For example… my keys. I placed a key rack on the wall by the door. I promised myself no matter how tired or lazy I felt at that moment, I need to place my keys there first. I remember how flustered and upset I got when I lost my keys and I don't ever want to feel like that again so I designate a place for them to go. Hope this helps!!

Yes, we just need to put a lot of THOUGHT and ACTION energy into the SOLUTION. Even fantasising about a solution helps because one day it will happen, being so angry that now that nail is going up on the wall and I will always put my keys there!!! In our family we have a tin box under the mirror in the hall for the car keys so we drop them there. We have the spare key in the upper drawer under that box, in a separate tray (an old ashtray that I had no use for and happened to put somewhere visible so now it has a function). So there is backup for those times when one of us forgets to put back the key and it doesn’t show up in the usual places (in a pocket, by the computer).
