If you’ve read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone or seen the movie, you may be familiar with the Remembrall, the small glass ball filled with swirling smoke that turns red when the owner (in this case, Harry’s forgetful classmate Neville) has forgotten something.
As someone who finds themselves losing or misplacing things more and more frequently, I often wish I had a Remembrall of my own to give me a heads-up. (Though in fairness, it didn’t end up being very helpful for Neville, who couldn’t remember what he’d forgotten!)
But while we may not have access to magical means of remembering forgotten or lost items, there are plenty of non-magical products that can help. In today’s post, I’ll be sharing 7 of the most useful products out there for people who are always losing things! :-)
7 Useful Products For People Who Are Always Losing Things
1. Magnetic Bowl
This small magnetic bowl is meant to help corral sewing pins, but that’s not all you could use it for! Use it to keep track of hair pins, keys, and other small metal items that have a habit of disappearing on you.
2. Glasses Holder
One of the biggest hurdles I faced while adapting to needing reading glasses was constantly forgetting where I put them. I could have saved myself a lot of time and effort If only I had known about this handy magnetic eyeglass holder sooner.
This simple clip can be attached almost anywhere using the magnetic backplate. Once attached, it makes the perfect hook to hang your glasses from! With this clip, you’ll always have a convenient place to put your glasses.
3. Purse Organizer
For many of us, carrying a roomy purse can be both a blessing and a curse! It’s nice to be able to carry things around with you, but it can quickly become an organizational nightmare.
If you’re always searching for things in your purse, consider getting a purse organizer. They come in all shapes and sizes, and offer a simple solution for keeping things organized in the depths of your bag.
4. Universal Remote
Can’t keep track of all the remotes for your home entertainment system? Set yourself up with a universal remote like this one, which can control up to 4 different audio and video components and help simplify your setup considerably.
5. Key Finder
If you’re constantly looking for your car keys, a bluetooth tracker could save you a lot of time and effort. The Tile Pro offers a variety of useful features, including a 400’ bluetooth range and a loud ringer you’re sure to hear anywhere in the house!
If you’re looking for a more inexpensive option, the slightly less powerful Tile Mate offers similar finding features.
6. Pet Tracker
A pet tracker can help give you peace of mind when your dog is out playing in the yard. The Pawscout pet tag has a 300’ bluetooth range and will send a notification to your phone if your pet leaves the area.
If your dog is something of an escape artist, a GPS-powered tracker like the Tractive could be worth the extra cost.
7. Lip Balm Holder
I can’t even begin to fathom how many tubes of lip balm I’ve lost over the years. They have an unfortunate habit of simply disappearing without a trace!
If you’re always losing lip balm too, a lip balm keychain sleeve may be just the thing you need. Use it to keep your lip balm securely attached to your keys, ID badge, or anything else you carry around with you.
