Start The Search For A Lost Item Right Where It Should Be

When you’ve lost something, you probably tend to look for it where you last saw it. You might find it faster, however, if you start your search where you know it belongs.

We all forget and lose things, and nothing is more frustrating than spending our precious time looking for them. The next time you misplace something, Adrienne Breaux at Apartment Therapy suggests you head right for the item’s home.

Our memory can be pretty spotty when it comes to these kinds of things, so don’t just rely on looking where you think you saw it last. Chances are you returned the item to where you normally put it without even thinking about it. If you still can’t find it, start branching out from there as a starting point. Then, after a while, come back to the item’s home and look again. You might have missed it the first time around.
