. . . it is also what happened a.l.l t.h.e t.i.m.e to my keys in the big bag I bought for this winter!
This is the largest bag I have carried in many years. When I went out looking for one last Fall, I wasn’t looking for one this big, but when I saw it I liked the idea of being able to carry things like an umbrella or camera in it. So, it’s the one I chose.
But soon after I started using the new bag, I realized there was a problem … with my keys … in a very large, very dark (lined in black) bag. There is a small pocket just inside the bag that I found fit my keys perfectly, and as long as I put them in that little pocket, I could readily find them. But, if I was in a rush and happened to miss the little pocket and they dropped into the “great abyss”, it took me forever to find them the next time I needed them!
So, when I saw this wonderful little invention on a jewelry counter (for less than $10!), I knew it was exactly what I needed.
It attached to my key ring and gave me a hook to use to hang the keys on the edge of the bag.
Now, I can hang my keys anywhere around the edge of my bag, and all I have to do is look for this little heart to know immediately where to locate my keys. It came in a wide variety of colors and styles, but I picked the silver heart because it is “generic” enough that it will be able to be used with just about any bag that needs it in the future.
I love it when some little invention solves a problem for me. My heartfelt thanks go to the person who invented this clever little item that is making my life easier.
The lost have been found!
