What common items do you seem to frequently misplace?

I frequently misplace my hairbrush, and sometimes my keys and glasses.

Keys
Glasses (reading and sun).

Shoes

Important papers

Anything that has a date on it: which explains why I frequently show up a week early or a date late.

My check-book.

Cell phone. (I need two, one to call myself with).

Writing utensils.


LOTS of things. I am queen of dis-organized.

I hide things from myself all the time.

I ALWAYS lose movies and CDs. And often my iPod.

eldragon - I'd be terrified if I lost my checkbook. Well, rather nervous.

writerterri - Your poor kids.

I misplaced my roommate once. Found her again when I was sober.

And thank you so much. Now I'm going to have that D*** Veggie Tales song in my head for the rest of the night! :scared:

My bills and I typically do not find them until they are past due.

My notes, and the things I hide from myself. I'm not telling you what they are, though.

Shoes. At our wedding, my husband sang me a song he wrote, and one of the lines was, "I'll always find you your shoes."

(He does, too. He has a great visual memory.)

Other things I lose: keys, books (I forget where I've shelved them), bills/mail, the cordless phone (hooray for beeping tracking thingees), the cell phone, people's addresses and phone numbers, scrunchies (I wear them to bed every night), scissors and tape...

My husband. Sadly he always seems to reappear at the worst times though.

Best place to start looking for a good deal.

Hmmm.... good point. Wonder if they have my sanity too? Lost that ages ago!

Oh I would so avoid looking for it at Wal Mart. The good deal would probably come with employment there and from what I've heard, it's not that great a place to work.

This is a good suggestion. I once tried to give a couch with a tiny rip on the underside of one of the cushions to the SA, and they refused it, so you know you'll be getting top-notch sanity.

On the other hand, before you commit to anything, I'd ask why the original owner gave it away.

I have to second Jenna's "scissors and tape." How could I forget those?

Yea, right. They can't wait until I'm not looking or on the phone. Missplacing them would be a dream for them.

I very seldom misplace anything...I'm only disorganized to the casual observer. There is a method to my madness...I hope. Though I do have a hard time keeping track of the cordless phone but I blame that on my husband and I really don't mind because I very seldom answer the phone anyway.

My keys are the things I lost most often. I've even found them in the freezer! It's not that hard to do, really. Come home from the grocery store and start putting away groceries before you set your keys down and you never know where you might find them.

I also lose my purse, my shoes, bills, my umbrella (no idea where it is right now, and of course it is storming) and Jenna - I salute another scissors and tape loser. At Christmas time, I'll get up from the floor after an hour or two of wrapping presents and there will be 2-3 pairs of scissors and several rolls of tape buried beneath all the stuff. I lose the ones I am working with and go get more. Then they don't resurface until I am putting it all away.

I lose my keys and coffee cup all the time. Once, I lost a friend...

My mother always said that if you act like what you lost you'd find it. Many times I'd watch her 'acting' like a pair of scissors or a match or a bottle opener....

Last week I acted like a pair of scissors, keys, a calculator and a packet of aspartame aweetener.

Wallet, keys, watch...pretty much anything that isn't directly attached to me twenty-four hours a day has got the potential to being lost.

Keys
Access badge for work
Wallet
Hat (military)

I'm told my ADD is to blame for this since I have not truly established a routine where I drop these things into one spot. More Adderall, please ...

Losing things is my specialty. It drives me crazy. I am constantly losing my keys (until my husband put a little key rack by the front door - works when I remember to hang my keys there)

I am always losing my shoes - I kick them off whereever - under the table, by the sofa, next to my bed, in the bathroom, even in the laundry room (I have a tendency to take off my clothes and throw them in as I'm doing laundry) -- then, I can't remember. So, I wonder around the house searching in all rooms.

Once I left a child in a supermarket. Marisa liked to go look at magazines, so I let her while I got my groceries. I checked out and drove home. I walked in and my hubby asked, "Where's Marisa?" -- I started laughing and hurried out. He didn't think it was funny. It was the only time it ever happened. I never did it again. (she was 10)

And, like KTC, I am ALWAYS losing my car. I have a bad habit of getting to the mall, or whereever, and not noticing where I parked. When I come out, I have to search aisle by aisle -- it's embarrassing. Now that my girls are older, they tease me. We'll walk out and my daughter will look at me and smile. I'll say, "I know, I know. Just tell me where we parked."
(I did this in Disneyland once and swore to their parking attendant at 12:30 a.m. that someone stole my car. I KNEW I parked in Pinochio. He asked what time I arrived, checked his log, and said that at that time, they were parking in Jiminy Cricket.) oops.

Even worse than I hate not being able to find stuff - is when I'm looking for something and then find another item that I'd been looking for previously and had finally given up as permanently lost.

Especially when I've already bought another one to replace what I couldn't find before.

And then I still don't find what I was originally looking for.

Until another day when I'm looking for something else, of course.

I've lost my brother (we left him at the Fairgrounds after a horseshow, because my friend was coming to stay. So to give me some credit, the number of kids was right!).

I've lost numerous horse brushes, towels, hoofpicks, etc, though never my horse.

My glasses. I need to be wearing them in order to find them!

Homework. Books, both for school and for reading. Most recently, my T1-83 calculator.

And my personal favorite: my hairbrush. Once I lost it, and yelled at my brother who I knew had taken it. He let me rant on for a few minutes before pointing it out that I had it in my hand. I was even gesturing with it, in fact.
