  • Always the last place you look...

    From AARP..typically I find their articles to be pretty useless, but this one kind of made sense...

    Makes sense. I've found great results with the following:

    1) It's where you first looked, but under/behind something
    2) It's in your purse

        Of course it's the last place you look - once you find it you stop looking.

        I usually stumble on something I've not been able to find when I'm looking for something else. Now, if I can't find something, I deliberately look for something else.

            It's in the last place you look because when you find it you stop looking.

            edit: Those 3 posts above were not there when I typed that in. Makes me look like a drone. Damn the slow internet speed here in the sticks.

              I normally have the ability to know where all my many things are, but I've had this little game going on with a little diamond sharpening stone for about 15 years. For some reason it has spent about 99% of its life lost. Every time I stumble upon it I lose it again for a few years. I've never been able to find it when I need it.

                I usually backtrack and it either turns up or it doesn't. I've bought half a dozen pocket knives because I lose the darn things and can't find them. We have a table in the hall outside the bathroom and the other night I couldn't find my cell phone. Sure enough, it was on the hall table. I still don't remember putting it there. A few years ago I tore the house apart and drove miles to different places trying to find my cell phone. Spent a couple of hours. It was in the back yard. I'd gone out there to drag the dog inside when she wouldn't come in and it must've come off my belt.

                  A place for everything, and everything misplaced...my words to live by.

                    I usually lose tools because of all the clutter. As a result, I have 22 of some things.
