If your keys always go in the same place, you won't share this lament I read today by Leah Garchik in the San Francisco Chronicle. She was writing about a Memory Championship:
Tests measured ability to memorize number sequences, unfamiliar poetry and the order of cards in a deck. Also, competitors were given 15 minutes to study head shots labeled with the names of 99 people. Then they were given the photos and names separately, and given 20 minutes to match them. But even that hellish exercise is child's play when compared with everyday challenges: Where are the keys?While any hook could do, here are some products specifically designed for holding keys - in a wide range of styles.
The buckle-up key holder shown above is one of my favorite finds.
Staying with car theme, here's another key holder. The company also makes his and hers key holders. Update on Jan. 19, 2011: I no longer see the Wheels key holder on the site where I first found it, but you can get it here.
DutchbyDesign.com has this keyhanger board. This is the U.S. version of their web site; there are two other versions for other parts of the world. Update on Jan. 19, 2011: I'm no longer seeing this product on the Dutch by Design web site.
And then there's this deer key rack. Update on July 2, 2009: This one doesn't seem to be available any more.
These brass key hangers were made in India.
This horseshoe key hangers comes from ALGrumpy's Etsy store.
If you don't mind spending $300, you could consider this basket key holder. If you want to spend a whole lot less, you could get a wall-hung soap dish to hold your keys.
