On average, it takes us just over 5 minutes to do this. What is it? Find lost items. Nothing more frustrating than when you’re running late and you can’t find your keys, glasses, wallet, phone, you name it. It happens to the best of us and happens frequently. Want to turn on the TV? Where’s the remote? Some find comfort in keeping all of their items in the same place. Or looking for glasses and they’re on your head or hanging from your collar.
Not so surprisingly, Pixie’s survey shows that more the 45% of us lose the remote controls to our TVs at least once a week—with 71% of us losing them monthly—making them by far the most misplaced item in the survey. Next come phones (33%); car and house keys (28%); glasses (27%); shoes (24%); and wallets and purses (20%), which means at least one in every five misplaces something important every week!
