Always Losing Stuff? You Aren't Alone!

posted by Blaine - 

According to a new survey, it takes an average of 5 minutes and 20 seconds to find something you misplaced around the house.  And we waste TWO-AND-A-HALF DAYS a year searching for lost stuff. 


Here are five more stats from the survey . . .

 

1.  The six things we misplace the most are the remote, our phone, our keys, our glasses, our shoes, and our wallet or purse.  Over 70% of us can't find the remote at least once a month.

  

2.  60% of people have been late for work or school because they couldn't find something . . . 49% have missed an appointment . . . and 35% have gotten into a fight with their significant other.  Men are more likely to blame someone else than women.

  

3.  The three places we look FIRST are our purse or bag . . . the couch . . . and the pockets of whatever we wore the day before.

  

4.  40% think that getting older is one reason we lose stuff.  But millennials are actually twice as likely to lose stuff as baby boomers.

  

5.  69% of us have found something ELSE that was missing while looking for a lost item.
