If you have a cluttered environment (or if you have teenagers) it can be easy to lose things in your home. Many people now have dispensed with land lines in their homes and rely only on a cellular phone. So what happens if you lose your cell phone in your house and you don’t have another phone to call yourself from to hear the ring and find it?
The answer: You can go to PhoneMyPhone.com and call yourself from their website, enabling you to hear the ringing and locate your phone. There are other uses… You can even schedule a time for it to call you, providing a great excuse to, as they put it on their home page, "end a sucky date early." I am sure you readers can think of all kinds of scenarios in which you could use a well-placed phone call to rescue you from something… a meeting, etc. Could be a great time management tool! (A better tool is to learn to say NO when you need to)
Here is another product used for finding things in your house: The Loc8tor. (photo here from Loc8tor’s website) You put Loc8tor tags on your keys, your remote controls, your iPod, even your pet. Then you use the locating device to lead you to the lost item with increasingly louder sounds indicating your search is bringing you closer to the item.
The trick is not losing the locating device…
