    1. A magnetic cloud key holder in case your keys are often mist-placed.

    Promising Review: "This product is something that I didn't even know I needed! The magnet is more than powerful enough to hold my car and apartment keys simultaneously. In the past, I frequently misplaced my keys and this has provided me with an easy and convenient solution for just that. Now, I have one place to put my most important belongings. I appreciate the fact that it also can be applied to the wall — I've seen people use dishes before to hold their keys, but this was an awesome upgrade that I have truly come to love." —Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 13 different styles and finishes).

    2. A friendly frog that'll also hide a key, just in case.

    He's hoppy to help out!

    Get him from Amazon for $19.95.

    3. A gap cover for every pesky gap in your home — not just the one between your oven and counter.

    Are pencils, pens, and papers always falling behind your desk? This'll fill just about any awkward crack you've got, and save you searching time to boot.

    Get a two-pack on Amazon for $9.95.

    4. A set of drawer dividers that'll stop that one bottle opener from disappearing into the depths of your kitchen drawers.

    7. A punny wooden sign to help pair up any lost socks — and look cute in your laundry room to boot.

    This won't stop the washing machine from eating that one sock, but when it decides to reappear you'll be able to match them right back up.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    8. Or a pair of already unmatched socks so you can just surrender to the random forces of the universe.

    With a few pairs of these, the mix and match opportunities are basically endless! Plus, no one will be able to tell if one (or two, or three) go missing.

    Get them from Amazon for $19+ (available in four sizes and 30 colors).

    9. A jewelry box that'll help if your earrings keep growing legs and walking away.

    Promising review: "Beautifully crafted yet sturdy, this organizer provides a place for everything and ensures that everything will remain in its place.

    11. ...or a hip bag that'll do the same job with ultra-dad vibes.

    12. An adhesive cell phone wallet so your cards will never go missing.

    13. A super roomy, super secure backpack you need if the lost luggage office haunts your nightmares.

    Carry on all your essentials in this stylish and basically theft-proof bag: all the zippers are hidden next to your body instead of on the outside where they can be easily pickpocketed. It's also water resistant and slash-proof, and designed to spread weight evenly across your back. Plus, it's got dedicated pockets for everything from your laptop to your headphones, so nothing will ever go astray.

    Get it on Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    14. A headphone keeper that'll save your earbuds from disappearing into the depths of your bag.

    15. A multipack of chargers for your house, office, purse, car, undersea lair, basically anywhere you can think of.,

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (for a five-pack of Micro-USB chargers) or $11.98 (for a two-pack of Lightning chargers).

    16. A nifty solution for that dreaded gap between the car seat and the console.

    Promising review: "Like many of you, I drive a car with what seems like a Marianas Trench-like crevasse that my iPhone religiously loves to plunge into. Once this happens, there is simply no way to reach the phone. Now I have to get off the freeway just to get my phone.... like how prehistoric? What you save on frustration makes it worth every penny." —theReviewURlooking4

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. A handy clip-on gadget to keep your sunglasses safe in the car while you're not using them.

    That way they can't get lost somewhere in the depths of the console, or get smushed if you leave them in the seat and forget about them (definitely not an example based on personal experience).

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    18. A car finder that'll save the day if you're always forgetting where you parked.

    In addition to finding your car and acting as a charger, it can monitor your car battery, log business mileage, help you avoid parking tickets, and share your car's location with others.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best charger I have ever owned or used. I purchased a couple of the original chargers for family and they all still use them. Even better is the reversible USB ports so you never have to try and figure that out on the road, it just plugs in. Now for the really impressive feature, locating your car. After the extremely simple set up, you never have to think about it again. Whenever you leave your car the app saves the location. Using the app is simple as following an arrow or using the map. I haven't noticed a big strain on the battery yet, but it doesn't matter since you make up any extra loss with the quick charge. Highly recommended for anyone just as a great car charger with the bonus of being able to effortlessly locate your vehicle as well." —Colton Halbach

    Get it from Amazon for $24.90.

    19. A set of hooks to keep bags away from the abyss that is the floor of your car.

    Promising Review: "These hooks work great and function exactly the way I had hoped for! I actually turned them around and use them for the front of the seat, rather than the back. These hooks have solved the dreaded 'bag dump' when you have to break suddenly." —katie grimm

    Get them on Amazon for $6.99.

    20. A Tile Pro that'll help you find literally anything.

    Just attach it to whatever you lose the most (keys, wallet, bag, cat, small child, significant other) and you'll never be without it again! Use the app to find the Tile — it'll make a loud noise if it's within 300 feet, and show up on the map if it's not. Or press the button on the Tile to make your phone ring, even if the phone is set to silent. The batteries are fully replaceable, and if you have a smart device you can even ask Alexa to find your keys.

    Get one on Amazon for $34.99.

    Is it the end of Peter Pan in here? Because I don't see any more Lost Boys (or Girls) (or Nonbinary People).
