Never Lose Your Keys Again!

Never Lose Your Keys Again!

Never Lose Your Keys Again

Do you lose your keys a lot?  I do!  But I know how you can never lose your keys again!!

Back in November 2017, shortly after my husband of  30 years had left me for the second time, I had a rather harrowing day of losing my keys.  I was dealing with enough problems and that just put my stress level over the top!  I tried to keep my attitude as positive as possible but I needed to vent.  So I made this Facebook post the following day:

“So yesterday I spent a fun filled 🙄 two hours in the Walmart parking lot trying to find my keys and then watching my son-in-law try to unlock the door with a coat hanger! Eventually I spent fifty dollars on a locksmith who unlocked the car but the keys were still nowhere to be found. I finally gave up and was going to let my son-in-law drive me home. (Knowing I’d have to jump through hoops to figure out how to get another key made). But he decided to go in and give customer service his name and number so they could call him if the keys were turned in. Just in case, he asked them to check their “lost & found stash” one more time – and – FINALLY there were my KEYS!! 😵

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Brad for coming to my rescue and saving the day!!! I’m sure he had more enjoyable ways he could have spent the afternoon – but he very kindly helped me instead! 😘

On a side note, to add insult to injury, when I got home and changed my shirt I found a lovely gift from a bird on the back!!!

How’s that for a “true-life” Facebook post?! 😆”

Here are the two pictures that accompanied my post:


Now, I’m going to swear you to secrecy – don’t tell my son-in-law Brad (because if you do, I’ll deny it!) but I found a spare key in the jewelry box a few day later!  SHHHHH!!!

But There’s More . . . The Story has a Very Happy Ending!

For Christmas my other son-in-law, David, gave me a Tile Mate – Key Finder!  It is a little square device that I attached to my key chain.  The app that I downloaded to my phone allows me to touch the screen and the Tile attached to my keys plays a little tune allowing me to find them instantly!  Now I’ll never lose my keys again!  The really awesome thing is, that if I set my phone down somewhere and then can’t remember where it is, I can push the button on the Tile and it will find my phone for me too!

My sons-in-law are the greatest guys ever!!

If you’re as absent minded as I am, then you need a Tile Mate – Key Finder of your very own.  You can get yours on Amazon by clicking the photo or the link below!  Then you’ll never lose your keys again!

Find your keys, find your phone, find anything!!

    We had one of those on our cat’s collar for a while – in case she wandered off and we needed to find her. It never really got put to the test, but it was good for our peace of mind! Glad it all came out well in the end for you and your son-in-law (and lovely that he came to your rescue).

    Awesome son in laws for sure. This is a great story.

    I need this in my life as when hubs is away I got no family in town to rescue me at all. What a great device.

    Apps are great aren’t they? I definitely need this one because I’m always losing my keys. I also seem to lose the car in the carpark but that is another story. Thanks for sharing at #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty and have a fabulous week. xx
