We love our stuff, but we also have a hard time keeping track of our stuff. We're always scrambling around the house looking for our keys, cell phone, wallet, etc. just as we really need to rush out the door for an appointment. Here are a few quick tips and gets to help you keep tabs on your gear!

1) Click 'n Dig!

The Click 'n Dig wireless locator finds up to four missing items up to 60 feet away. Hilariously they tout one of its uses as a pet locator, although a 60 foot range might have limited usefulness anywhere but indoors in a small home.

2) Key Finder

Brookstone, that store of electronic oddities and gadgets also offers up a wireless key finder. Their version offers a big locator with two big color coded buttons. The large unit presumably makes it more likely to get lost itself, with a permanent perch on your desk or counter.

3) Key Ringer

Attach these KeyRingers to your keys or other belongings (their website shows among other things attachments to keys, a TV remote, purse, eyeglass case, and cane) and press the button on the locator an the other unit will beep, helping you find where you left it.

4) Key Finder Key Chain

AS SEEN ON TV! The Key Finder Key Chain actually responds to claps, whistles, or shouts. The responding unit will beep and light up. Brings a few chuckles to the thought of searching around your house calling for your keys!

5) Cobra Tag

Going high tech, the Cobra Tag is a two way device, letting your smart phone find your keys and vice versa!

6) Phone Halo

Phone Halo takes it up a notch by incorporating a GPS unit into the locator device. This allows you to actually track your keys (or pet or car or whatever) from your smartphone.

And Many More

A search on Google Shopping and Amazon comes up with hundreds more. Whether you go cheap or you can go high tech, there are tons of options out there for you to keep track of your keys, phones, glasses, and pets!
