You obviously don't need to read this article if you
rarely lose your car keys. However if you misplace your car keys often
and have a pretty good relationship with your locksmith, it's time to
change these bad habits into good ones.
One of my friends, recently lost their car keys. I would like you to
listen to what I'm about to say and see if it makes sense to you. Most
people get two keys when they buy a car. This means, if they lose one
key, they now have a spare key. When they lose their first key, this
should give them a pretty good clue that the second key is now the only
key, if they wish to drive their car.
Does that make sense? If you lose your first key, you don't have a
second or spare key anymore. Now is a good time to purchase a spare key
or have one made. Don't wait until you lose the second one, unless you
are planning to change your bad habit into a good one.
Now let me get back to my friends who recently lost their car's key. The
car they were driving was a new Honda and you can't go to the locksmith
to get another key made. You have to order one from the Honda dealer and
this key cost them over $200. That's a lot of money for one key.
Now my friends lost both of their original keys and now have one key to
operate the vehicle and this key cost them over $200. Now if I had to
pay this amount of money, I would make sure that I never lost this key
ever again. I would do whatever it to to change my old habits and create
some new ones.
How hard is it to get in the habit of placing your keys inside of your
purse. Placing your keys in your pockets and then only removing them
when you are going to place them inside of a drawer, container, cup,
bowl or on a shelf in your bedroom. If you place your keys in a drawer,
this will keep them out of other people's temptation.
If you choose to lay your keys in a bowl, in the kitchen, there's a good
chance someone will take them or another member of your family could
lose them. Place your keys in a protected area, do not leave them out in
the open ever.
If you want some tips to prevent you from losing your keys, simply talk
to someone who rarely if ever loses their keys. Most of these people
have simple and easy to follow tips. You can consciously create a habit
that can save you money and frustration in the future.
