3. Establish forget-me-not spots
Are you constantly losing your keys, cell phone, sunglasses and other small items? Because you put down and pick up these types of things so often, you likely don't always pay attention to -- and so easily forget -- where they end up, says Green. The solution: "Train yourself to always put something in the same place," she says. Before you put an item down, think: "Is this where it goes?" These forget-me-not spots can be a dish or hook by the door or a pocket in your purse -- whatever makes sense to you.
