All is not lost

Live With Less searching for lost items

Last month I was called for jury duty, which meant I was stuck in a gigantic room with 500 other Fulton County residents. What an opportunity for people-watching!

Soon after arriving, I noticed a woman near me digging through her purse. Minutes passed and she was still digging. I could tell she was starting to panic.

When she came up empty-handed, she asked a stranger sitting next to her to watch her purse as she left to retrace her steps to and from the restroom. She was gone about ten minutes, and returned with an even more frantic look on her face as she commented to the women next to her, with a nervous laugh, "Hmmm, I wonder where my keys are?"

She then began taking items out of her purse, one by one, and creating a large pile of her purse's contents scattered about the floor. When she'd emptied the entire purse, she started rifling through the pile and then opening and closing all of the zippers in her handbag.

Finally, in a last-ditch effort, she grabbed her coat and heard the familiar jingle of keys knocking together. The relief on her face was undeniable.

Searching for lost items can be extremely stressful! And statistics indicate that Americans spend up to 55 minutes a day searching for items they know they own, but cannot find.
