Found mine in the freezer compartment of our refrigerator one time. Had bought t g-kids ice cream and one didn't eat it all so I put the remaining milk shake in the freezer. How I put the keys in there I don't know. Probably thinking of something else and put them in there with the shake. It was indeed the last place I thought to look!

If you have an Android phone, go to Google on a computer and type in find my phone to find that.
This looks like a good idea... for my new set of keys.

At work, someone brought me two fresh caught fish they had caught on their lunch hour. I put the fish and my keys, so I couldn't forget the fish, in the lab refrigerator. At 9 PM that night, usually go home at 5, I found the keys and remembered to take the fish home.

In 10 years of fulltiming, it has amazed me how easy it is to lose things in such a small space! My toad keys have been a constant issue!

  • The most stupid place I have "lost" mine was in the entry door! Since it has been 4 days, I assume that is not your issue.
  • Sometimes I forget which pants I had on and the pants got put up with the keys in them.
  • With space at a premium, often my keys get placed somewhere, and then something gets placed on top.
  • Once for some reason I placed them on top of the utility box and eventually found them the next day.
Good luck!

They could be anywhere. I lost my keys in my 14 X 18 office at work. I had to have my wife bring me the spare key to drive home. Two weeks later I found them in my file cabinet. Apparently I had them in my hand when I pulled a file and somehow they fell into an accordion file.

It's winter, check all jacket and rain gear pockets. I changed the RV doorlock to a keypad. I also have a full set of keys for everything in the RV. I have a hide a key on the truck and a key for the RV in the glove box. SO FAR, I have never been locked out of anything. Lots of keys but loosing a key can ruin a trip.

One time I finally found the missing keys on the floor of the trunk of the car (this is where second set is indispensable...). Apparently I dropped them when I was unloading something at the house.

Second time I found them--don't laugh--right where they were supposed to be. They had somehow gotten covered over by something else and for some reason I kept overlooking them.

DH accidentally threw his keys away one fall when unloading leaf debris in the county dumpster and there was no way to recover them. Now he makes sure he does not have keys and something else in his hands at the same time.

When we travel in the RV, DH keeps one set of keys and I have the other set. I make a point of never getting out without my keys and I also make sure when I get back in they are with me. It may sound a bit compulsive, but I locked myself out many years ago and do not want to repeat the experience...ever.

Hope you find yours!

There's a prayer that never fails... goes something like...Tony , Tony, Please come down, something's lost and must be found... another version of it is, Something's lost and can't be found. Please, St. Anthony, look around.

Would the Original Poster tell the rest of us if their keys were ever found & where they were found?

Where is the oddest place you ever found your keys?
Time to break down and do what all husbands do:

the fastest and surest way to find them is break down and replace them.
they always show up shortly there after,
