    1. A pack of cord clips so you can finally untangle your jumble of cables. Each wire gets its own clip, so you won't have to bother testing every cord until you find your phone charger.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These clips are amazing for organizing your desk, workplace, and/or nightstand. They are made of durable rubber, and once you stick them, they stay in place. I have one on my nightstand to hold my cell phone charger in place, which is great because I used to lose my charger cord every morning and had to reach behind my mattress every night retrieve it. This way it is kept nice and in the same place, easy to reach and use." —tammy l freeman

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.97.

    2. Wall hooks shaped like a subway map to combine your love of public transportation with being able to find exactly what you're looking for. No more meltdowns in the morning while trying to find your keys; just hang them on a hook by the door and you can grab them and go.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely one of the best wall-mounted hooks we could find. Probably the strongest from Umbra. We put backpacks, hats, and leashes on it. Definitely a good investment." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $30.40.

    3. A set of six wireless remote key finders so you can keep track of all the essentials. Each remote has six different-colored buttons, which each corresponding to the six colored receivers.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this for my mother-in-law as a gift. She is ALWAYS losing her car key, house key, cell phones (she has two because she always loses one!). Wasn't sure if she would use it or it would be too complicated. She not only uses it but loves it! And no more late night or early morning phone calls for spare keys!" —Cc

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    4. A magnetic key holder that'll be ~cirrus~ly useful for keeping track of your keychain. It comes with an adhesive backing so you can mount it on the wall without drilling holes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. Hasn't lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. In love. One of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    5. A pack of wall hooks shaped like a dude climbing for when you need a helping hand, head, or leg to remember the important stuff. Hang them by the front door so you're not scrambling in the morning to find your keys, wallet, or purse. The set includes everything you'll need to mount the hooks, plus they add a pop of color to your walls.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So cute! I don't have a coat closet at my front door, so these worked great for guests coats and I get lots of comments about how fun they are!" —Dawn

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors).

    6. A eye-catching laptop shoulder bag that'll grab your attention with its bright print so you'll be less likely to leave it at home. It's got enough pockets to hold your mouse and charger so you can achieve peak efficiency instead of having to leave the library halfway through your essay because your computer died.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This laptop bag is absolutely perfect if you want something not overly huge and bulky. I was really surprised at the quality of the bag for being only $20. My Microsoft Surface Pro 6 fits beautifully. I can even leave the pen on the side of my laptop and slide it in and out of the bag with no problem. My charger fits nicely into the zippered pocket without much bulk. I am currently using it without the shoulder strap but have left it in one of the side pockets in case I need it at some point." —TkB

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five sizes and 10 colors).

    7. A couch organizer for holding all your remotes, because for some reason you have 15 of them and they all control something different.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have three of them! One on the couch in the main TV room, one on the couch in the rec room, and one on the back of bed headboard. Perfect for storing everything from TV remotes to glasses, even notebooks or TV guide and more. We were always losing the remote. Now we have a rule to always put it back in their pocket. Perfect!!" —sarah jean

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 14 colors and as a two-pack).

    8. A plush, tip-proof eyeglasses holder so you can stop channeling Velma Dinkley asking "Where are my glasses?"

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I actually ordered this for my remote control because I keep constantly losing it only to find that it's stuck in between the cushions of my sofa or in some other crack or crevice that I never thought to look and spend hours of frustration and aggravation trying to find it...This arrived today in a beautiful chocolate espresso color and viola! My remote control fit it like a glove. I tried to see if there was enough room to hold my glasses but there was not (probably because of the width of my particular remote)...I ordered another one of these for my glasses. I never have to worry about losing either of those again. I love it." —Amazon Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (also available in brown).

    9. A ~paw~sitively adorable eyeglasses stand to hold your spectacles. It's purrfect for the visually challenged because it's big enough that you won't miss it on your nightstand even if you're not wearing your glasses.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this! I could never keep track of where my glasses were at night. Yes, always on shelf, but without my eyes on, they would blend in with everything else. PROBLEM SOLVED!" —Dee Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four animals).

    10. An all out of grocery list for the shopper whose mind blanks the minute they enter the store. I think we need milk, right?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you're like me, you become a deer in the headlights when you walk into the grocery store. That's why this notepad is a game changer. We keep this on the refrigerator and check the appropriate box whenever we use the last of/realize we are out of something. I also use this list to plan for shopping trips. There is nothing worse than getting back from the store and realizing that you forgot to buy something essential. Making a list only helps when you think of everything that you need when you're making the list. 'All out of' provides a comprehensive list of the essentials and helps with the brainstorming process. I have already recommended this product to my friends." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.14+ (available in four colors).

    11. A fake rock to store a spare house key in plain sight. It looks so realistic you just might forget where you put it!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have a child that always forgets their house key, this is the solution for you! When my daughter often forgets to pack her keys or I have a guest arrive from out of town when I'm not home, I don't have to leave work and let them in the house. This fake rock looks real and has some weight to it. It sets nicely, hidden within my mulch. It is a great solution for my family." —bernadette pernotto

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    12. A set of expandable drawer dividers so you stop losing utensils in the clutter of your drawers.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm using them in a large cabinet drawer where I keep kitchen utensils. I would try to keep them sorted, but they would always end up in a heap. These are fantastic, and keep the drawer orderly so I can find what I need quickly! Wish I knew about these long ago!" —Momazon

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $17.99 (available in five colors and as an eight-pack).

    13. A set of magnetic bookmarks that won't ~leaf~ you scrambling to find a lost page. Plus, they come in a pack of five, so it's not the end of the world if you lose one.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What great little bookmarks for such a reasonable price! They stay in place, which not all bookmarks do. Will order more for my book-loving friends!" —S S

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    15. A hanging jewelry organizer that comes with 32 clear pockets and 18 hooks so you'll finally stop your really bad habit of buying cheap earrings because you know you'll lose them after a week...and then buying another cheap pair to replace those.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I no longer lose my earrings!! 🙌 This has been a life saver for me! It has also helped me keep my jewelry organized!" —O.o

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (also available in white).

    16. A portable phone charger to juice up your devices, because you'll inevitably forget your charger.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this product mainly to charge my cell phone. The thing is I hate having to charge my phone in public spaces because of risk of forgetting it and having to stand still in a place. I was on vacation recently and this was a wonderful addition to the trip. I charged my phone while eating out, shopping, and exploring museums." —M. Santana

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. A stick-on wallet that'll attach your cards and cash to your phone so you literally cannot lose it...unless you misplace your phone...

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best thing ever! I go to college and don't like carrying my bulky wallet to and from school and I keep forgetting to switch out my cards (especially my license) from a smaller wallet to a bigger purse. So this was a great solution to my problem." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in five colors).

    18. A brightly colored earbud organizer to make it nearly impossible to forget your ear buds. Nothing screams "don't forget me" like the color turquoise.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My sister-in-law is a busy mom with a bunch of kids and barely any time to get ready. So when I heard she was always misplacing her earbuds and that was eating into her gym time, I hopped onto Amazon and grabbed her the cutest earbud organizer I could find. She loves it, and it really helps because she can tuck it in her bag and even attach it to some of her workout bags." —TheOrdinaryHiker

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (available in 10 colors and sets of one, two, or three).

    19. A pack of two AirPod cases for anyone who's not OK with losing $170. Attach them to your pants or keychain with the carabiner so you can enjoy your sweet jamz.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was constantly misplacing my AirPods until I got this. I like that it has the spot for the carabiner so I can clip my AirPods onto my keys – no more misplacing. I also like to clip them onto my water bottle or belt loop if I don't have my keys handy, which is convenient. I have been out in the rain many times with this case and while the outside of the case gets wet, the inside stays nice and dry." —Caroline Blythe

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 27 color combinations).

    20. A car finder app that'll remember where you parked, because there's nothing more fun than being DD and having to corral your drunk friends who just shotgunned a bunch of White Claw *and* find your car, which seems to have mysteriously vanished even though you're like 99% sure you parked by that one tree. Oh, and it also has two USB ports so you can charge your phone (because said drunk friends are going to want you to play Lover on repeat). AND! It also monitors your car battery so you can take it to the shop before it breaks down and you're freaking out while three drunk girls tell you, "You need to calm down!"

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love Love Love. Charges super fast and I'll never lose my car again! It even prompts you to set a meter reminder. I love this thing. It came is REALLY handy when we couldn't find our way back to the car after an exhausting hike and a national park office parking lot that was full." —Gwenny

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

    21. A waterproof CashStash keychain so you'll always have an emergency fund if you forget your wallet or you're somewhere that doesn't take card. Some reviewers say it also doubles as a pill box for their medications.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great thing to have on your keys for emergencies. I love that I always have some cash if I forget my wallet or my cards or the card reader is down somewhere. Had it on my keys for a while now. The paint has rubbed off some but that's to be expected. It is a little pricey but the quality of this is worth it over the cheaper ones imo." —vlr928

    Get it from Amazon $9.99 (available in three colors).

    22. A checklist doormat that'll curb your forgetfulness at the front door.

    SnappyPrinting/Etsy

    Get it from SnappyPrinting on Etsy for $24+ (available in two sizes and 24 colors).

    23. A pack of iPhone chargers for the person who's notorious for losing theirs. If Apple had a rewards program, you'd be a platinum member.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I constantly lose, break, or lend out chargers so I have bought many but these are my favorite so far. I love the different sizes. I keep the short one in my purse for my power bank, the medium one at my desk, and the long one next to my bed so I can use my phone anywhere while I'm laying down. The braiding keeps the cords from separating and fraying. They are really great quality and I never have troubles charging." —Carly Lesne

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    24. A pack of wearable sticky notes that'll make you laugh...and then actually get everything done. Strap them to your kids' wrists with a reminder to grab their homework if they're notorious among their teachers for always forgetting theirs.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So far I absolutely love the concept and (most of) the execution of these little notes. I found the link to them on a listicle about gag gifts for procrastinators, and immediately bought them for myself. Jokes on that author, they're incredibly useful! They look more professional than writing on the back of my hand yet still a tad absurd which is right up my alley." —Andi

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95.

    25. A set of Post-it Extreme Notes for sticking on every surface, even if it's wet. BRB gonna paste these all over my food storage containers so I don't forget to bring my lunch for the third time this week.

    instagram.com / Via @postit

    Promising review: "I’m a Post-it Note fanatic. You’ll see them on my fridge, my desk, my laptop, and inside the cover of my tablet. You’ll find them on my bathroom mirror, my kids’ doors. I have so much going on if I don’t write something down and throw it somewhere in writing I’ll forget or forget to tell someone something. I love this super pack. I can have little pads of them placed strategically throughout the house so I don’t have to search for one. I like that I can color code them. I like the colors are bold and bright so people will read them just to get them down off wherever I put a note (great way to make sure my teens read what I write and don’t just leave the note on their door). If you’re like me and you tend to abuse Post-it Notes, this is a great product." —Phoenix

    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (also available as a two-pack).

    26. A set of reusable shopping bags to clip on to your pants so you're never without your reusable grocery bags. They expand into full-sized pouches that can hold up to 25 pounds of groceries, because plastic waste is not cute, y'all!!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE these bags. Have been using one from a promotional campaign at a store for 12+ years, and it's just now started to show some age. It gets used/abused several times a week with much heavier loads than recommended. With the carabiner and draw cord, it clips right on my tiny purse and I never forget it at home or in the truck when I go to the store. Bought these for gifts for a couple of environmentally aware friends, I'm positive they'll love them as much as I do." —M. Miller

    Get them from Amazon for $23.96.

    27. A lip balm keychain for the person who's simultaneously working through 10 tubes of Chapstick because they keep disappearing when you need them and reappearing after you've already bought a new pack.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect for anyone who loses their lip balms frequently. I just use the regular Chapstick brand and it fits perfectly snug in there. Not too tight and not loose enough to fall out. Highly recommend!" —Sarah

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $9.50.

    28. A dishwasher magnet so you'll always know if the plates and cups are clean or dirty. This way you can put back clean dishes as soon as they're dry so you're not rooting around in your cupboards looking for your water bottle that's been sitting in the dishwasher because you forgot to empty it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49+ (also available as a three-pack).

    29. A password book for the person who's run out of password variations at this point. *Enters password* WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. *Resets password* NEW PASSWORD CANNOT BE YOUR OLD PASSWORD 😭😩

    Amazon

    Promising review: "In this world of password-protected everything, these have helped me tremendously. I keep one at work and one at home. I am still cautious about writing down every letter or digit, but give myself enough clues to prompt my memory. At home, I also include serial numbers, account numbers, and phone numbers as appropriate. It's helpful when I need repairs." —Terri G

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    I think you may have forgotten to add these things to your cart!! 🤔
