Remembering Your Keys

Tips to help you remember your keys. Post your ideas.


Remembering Your Keys

I was locked out of my apartment when I first moved in. It now costs fifteen dollars for them to let you in. I have a plastic key holder that can fit around my wrist and I hang my keys on the door knob. A lanyard would do too. This is also a good idea if you have to remember to take something with you when you go out, hanging it on the doorknob is a great reminder.

Remembering Your Keys

I got into the RIDICULOUS habit of putting my keys in the pocket of my trousers and jumping up and down before I leave the house. A bit obsessive - I Know! But I can hear them jangling so I know I've got them and maybe burn a few calories in the process! (02/07/2005)

Although this is not a tip for remembering your keys, it is something that has helped me remember something even more important; my shopping. I occasionally help a friend by taking her shopping. We do our shopping at the same time and I used to put the perishables in her fridge while we sat down to have a morning/afternoon tea after our shopping expedition.

I was always leaving my shopping in her fridge by accident and we lived quite a way from each other. It was a pain to have to always go back to retrieve my shopping. I came up with a brilliant idea that ALWAYS works.


Of course, the only way to get home was by my car. What I do now is that when I put my shopping in the fridge, I put my keys on top or near my shopping. So when I go searching for my keys, my memory is jogged that I have put them in the fridge.

So now I go home with my cool shopping and I have never anything behind since I started using this tip.

I never wear anything but jeans, so I keep them in my back pocket. ALL the time! (02/08/2005)

I have had a sturdy ethnic bell on my keyring for over 20 years. I can tell if my keys are in my purse by rattling it and listening for the bell, haven't lost them yet. (03/22/2008)

Remembering Your Keys

I used to have the nasty habit of leaving my keys in my front door, in my pockets or sometimes in my purse (then I'd switch bags) so I was forever searching for my keys. I screwed a hook (see pic) to the inside of my front door and started hanging them there when I walk in my door.


Also, I lucked out by finding a small, thin wallet (just big enough for my essential ids/cards) with a key chain at my local Staples store for only 50 cents. I have my house and car keys on the same chain, but I kept forgetting my drivers license. Now I have it all in one place. The wallet fits nicely in my pocket or purse (even in evening bags) and hangs on my hook when not in use. (04/06/2008)

Keep your eye out for jingle bells at this time of year. I just took a large bell decoration (from the dollar store) that hung on my front door handle, and wound my key ring around the bell hook at the top. I may sound like a ding-a-ling on the bus, but I sure won't have trouble finding my house key. (12/31/2008)
