How To: Keep Your Keys Organized

Good keys gone wild. Keys come into your life all of the time. And because only a few deserve to be carried with you, everyone has a growing key club back at the house. For example:

the key for the bike lock,
the gym locker,
your parents house,
the window gate…I think.
Hey, what's this one?

As we enter the nesting season, it is time to clean out your key collection. Here is your job for the week: go through all your keys and throw out all of those that you can no longer identify (test first). Don't be afraid! With those that remain, put each one on a ring with a label clearly attached. Take all of these rings and keys and put them onto a carabiner, which you can hang near the front door.

Carabiners are a great (and chic) way of quickly and easily grouping your keys. They are also great for carrying your daily key collection as you can attach it to your bag or a belt loop and never lose them for slipping down somewhere. MGR
