"I swear I set them down right here." — You, every day, referring to any number of items you use on a daily basis. If you have a habit of forgetting where you put your belongings, you're probably going to appreciate these 12 things to buy if you always tend to lose your stuff.
Don't beat yourself up too much if you're constantly losing track of your things. In fact, you should be proud of your forgetfulness. One study published in Neuron suggests that absentmindedness might be its own kind of intelligence, since your brain is focusing only on the most important things. It might actually be healthier to forget certain memories, so that your brain can have the bigger picture and make more informed decisions.
I think what researchers are saying is this: The next time someone gets on your case about how you lost your keys again, you can simply tell them that you're smarter than them. Or something like that.
Regardless, regularly misplacing everyday items that you can't do without is a major pain — particularly when you're already late for work and you can't find your car keys, which you later discover somehow ended up in the refrigerator. Keep better track of the essentials with these 12 practical, and kind of genius, purchases.
