Whenever I was growing up, I was notorious for losing things. I mean seriously, my parents would get so angry at me and I would go through multiple lectures a day about how I needed to grow up and be more responsible. Which is totally fine, all those loud yelling matches really helped… NOT. I still lose things all the time! Which I’m not proud of in anyway! I have gotten extremely good at it though. Good at NOT losing things that is. This one time I left my car on… while I was at work. That’s a whole 8 hour shift… My car was on and running.. and the keys were in it. I got in the car and started laughing. It wasn’t funny at all but there was literally nothing I could have done. I knew at that point I needed to really watch it… It wasn’t up until I started searching on the internet how I could keep up with my self when I started getting better. That whole car thing was a real huge mess up and a wake up call. So I found a couple ways technology helped me out. Hopefully they can help you too!
Tile is probably one of the coolest things to ever be invented. I honestly do not know how this has not been tried before. It’s essentially an app/hardware/service that helps you find things you have Tile installed on. And don’t worry its nothing that you have to actually install physically with nails and stuff. From what I can tell its just a small little sticky device. I love it. So basically you attach it to your phone and if you leave it somewhere, you can hop on a friends phone and tell it to start beeping, when you find it you just turn it off! Its perfect!
Remember how I forgot to turn my car off? Well sometimes I forget to even turn my house on. You must be thinking, “How does he turn his house on? What does that even mean?” Well folks, welcome to the 21’st century. I have one of those “Smart Homes” and my smart homes I mean… “I don’t have to do anything homes”. This is amazing. If I leave my house with out locking anything (which I do all the time) the app reminds me and I can even turn off my lights, lock my doors, and arm/watch my house from miles away all through my phone. That’s amazing! All of you really need to look into home security systems. Getting a home security system set up in my home was really helpful.
