Lost and Found

A new “Lost and Found” survey finds that misplacing items is so commonplace folks are wasting about 2-point-5 days a year looking for things, but that’s not all, sometimes those lost things aren’t found, with Americans spending $2.7-billion a year replacing their misplaced items, with two-thirds of people spending up to $50 a year replacing lost goods.

The most common thing we misplace is the TV remote, with 45% of people saying they can’t find it at least once a week, while 71% say they misplace it about once a month. Other common misplaced items include phones (33%), car and keys (28%), glasses (27%), shoes (24%) and wallets/purses (20%). When it comes to car keys, 25% of people say they misplace them at least twice a week, with more than 50% of people saying misplaced items have caused them to be late for work or school.

  • You may think losing things is a product of old age, it isn't. In fact, while 40% of people blame getting older on their misplacing of items, Millennials are actually twice as likely to misplace things as compared to Baby Boomers, and a third more likely than Gen Xers. 
  • In some cases misplacing things does have an upside. The survey finds that 69% of people have found another missing item while searching for something else.
