I lose my keys approximately twice a week. I used to lose them twice a day until we got a hook in our kitchen that I’ve been using, at least some of the time. They say a new habit takes 30 days to form. In this case, the habit of putting my keys away will take approximately 30 years to stick, but whatever.
In addition to losing my keys in the house, I also lose them ALL THE TIME in my purse. I don’t even have one of those monster “baglady” handbags. But still, I often have to shake my purse and do some serious digging to find them.
It seems that I’m not alone with these key problems. I’ve been trying out a new device that is really helping me, especially with the purse issue. It’s called the Charming KEYper and it does several really neat things, but most importantly, helps you put your hands on your keys very quickly.
Here are some of the reasons why the Charming KEYper is so great to have:
- Time: Studies show that women lose approximately 35 minutes a week searching for their keys and phone. KEYper gives you the gift of time.
- Safety: The number 2 most dangerous place for women is the mall parking lot. Safety experts recommend quick and easy access to your keys to help reduce vulnerability.
- Defense: Self defense experts have been quoted that having your keys in your hand gives you a valuable weapon in self defense.
The device is very simple to use. You simply attach your keys and/or cell phone to your KEYper, and then throw them in your purse like you normally do. Let the strap with the charm dangle slightly outside of the purse, and you’ll always be able to retrieve these items quickly! I personally don’t feel comfortable having the strap visible, but I can tell you that having it attached to my keys in my purse makes finding them take half a second, as opposed to maybe 15 seconds. Yay! It also makes it very easy to spot my keys when I leave them in random spots all over the house.
The KEYper can be attached to many different things, including student or work IDs, flash drives, or pretty much anything else that you need to be able to grab quickly (except for kids!).
I wasn’t able to successfully attach my phone to the KEYper, and I think that’s because of the case that my phone is in. I did learn that it can be slipped around the case, and then you put the case back on your phone. I actually haven’t taken my case off since I put it on almost 2 years ago, and don’t even know how (!), so I’ll just leave it as is.
My other suggestion is to offer even more variety in the way of strap colors. I like the one that I have, but a different color palette might have suited my personality even better. There are 6 styles and lots of different charms, so customizing to your liking shouldn’t be too difficult!
