1. Dedicate a space for your keys. The trick to knowing where your keys are when you’re at home is to have a space dedicated for them. Hang them in a sneaky cabinet or a shelf with a set of hooks. You can also use a stylish bowl or dish where you can easily park your keys. Just make it a habit to place them there upon arrival at home so it becomes easier to remember where to find them.

2. Place them near the front door. If you’re going to dedicate a space for your keys, choose to place them near the front door so it’s easier to access or remember them when you’re about to leave home. It could also be a lovely addition to your home, especially if it’s an artsy DIY piece.

3. Take advantage of technology. Technology surely helps in a lot of ways—including keeping track of your essentials. Use trackers like TrackR Bravo to remind you to grab your key or find them when you lose them. The coin-sized tracker works with the TrackR mobile app to help you locate items in seconds.

4. Let the wall do the talking. There’s nothing better than a reminder that stares right back at you. Hang a sign on your front door or any visible place in your home that will remind you of your keys and their whereabouts.

5. Designate a specific place in your bag. When you’re out, it’s important to have a dedicated space for your keys so you won’t have to search through your bag in the middle of the road. Place your key in a small pocket or create your own key pouch that reflects your personality. If your bag doesn’t have an extra pocket, check out these key clips instead.
