Where's My Keys?

Start Here 2

Just think about this possible situation:

What if you misplace your car keys 3 times in a year and you spend 30 minutes each time looking for them?

That’s 90 minutes a year.


Where's the TV Remote?

Start Here 3

What if you can’t find the TV remote once a week and spend 5 minutes each time looking for it? 5 X 52 = 260 minutes a year!

In a year, that's 90 minutes a year looking for your car keys, and 260 minutes a year looking for the TV remote! That adds up to 350 minutes each year, or almost 6 hours!

That’s 6 hours of your precious life that you can’t get back.

That’s 6 hours you could have spent playing a round of golf or a set of tennis. You could have had dinner enjoying time with your family or friends or pursuing your favorite hobby!

Need more proof? Take those 6 hours and multiply that by your hourly wage.  See how much money you could have saved by being more organized!
