Create a space for your keys

Searching for your keys is an avoidable waste of time — a stressful activity that usually happens when you're in a rush.

Getting locked out of your home is even more stressful, and potentially expensive.

Create a dedicated space for your keys by your home's entryway — a space just for your keys and nothing else — maybe in a bowl, or on a hook.

Now, when you come through the front door, keys in hand, you'll no longer put them on the kitchen counter, or in the fridge, or back in your pocket — you'll put them in their place.
