According to a new survey, it’s takes an average of 5 minutes and 20 seconds to find something you misplaced around the house. Whether it’s the phone, your car keys or the TV remote, we spend two and a half DAYS per year (that’s YEAR!!!) searching for lost stuff.
Here are five more interesting tidbits from the survey, according to PR Newswire:
- Six things we misplace the most are the remote, phone, keys, eyeglasses, shoes, and wallet (or purse). Over 70% of us can’t find the remote at least once a month.
- 60% of people have been late for work or school because they couldn’t find something. 49% have missed an appointment. 35% have gotten into a fight with their significant other.
- Three places we look first for our purse or bag is the couch and the pockets of whatever we wore the day before.
- 40% think that getting older is one reason we lose stuff, but millennials are actually twice as likely to lose stuff as baby boomers.
- 69% of us have something else that was missing while looking for a lost item.
