Find Your Keys
Pick one location near the door to hold your key ring while you’re at home. Hang or keep a basket near the front door next to your keys and for the bills and letters that need to be mailed. When you grab your keys, you’ll remember the mail. Practice putting keys in a basket, bowl or hook by the entry area as soon as you walk through the door so they’re easy to find.

Keep only frequently used keys for entry locks, security doors and vehicles on your everyday key ring to keep it light. Install a hook rack for keys in a handy location to hold extra keys, such as those for the mailbox, shed, bike lock, boat or neighbor’s home. Identify each key with a coloured key jacket or key tag.
Find a landing pad for purses, briefcases and backpacks somewhere near the entry so you can spot them quickly when you leave the house. A hanging accessory bag or shelving unit in the closet or a slim table in the hallway manages these items well.
