Losing your keys happens to everyone at some point or another, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. Without a designated place to put them, your keys can wind up pretty much anywhere.

If these clever hooks and organizers aren't enough, technology is still on your side to make sure that you never misplace your keys again.
