Quick tip - forgetting your cell phone at home

Sometimes I realise that my cell phone battery is running low so I plug it in to charge. Our charging station is in the kitchen.

I then forget to collect the phone before I leave because the rest of my stuff is on my launch pad, as in this picture.

Yes, that's a new bag :)

So now I do this: I keep a clothes peg on my cell phone charger. When I plug in the phone, I remove the peg and pin it to my handbag.

Like this.

When I'm ready to leave and I see that peg, I remember that my phone is still charging and now, I don't forget to collect it anymore!

How do you remember your cell phone?

I put my car keys on the charging dock with my phone. Can't go anywhere w/o my keys.

My charging station is right next to my purse. My purse and phone are always together!

This is, quite possibly, the most brilliant suggestion I've read this year. Thank you!

My purse and my phone are always side by side. Can't leave without them!

What a great solution! I kept forgetting my phone all the time after charging it!
I eventually just moved my cell charger to the front hall right near where I put my purse. Now my cell is either inside the purse, or right next to it!

I thread the charger cord through my key ring so when I need to lock the door on my way out I find my keys and cellphone at the same time! LOL

Your suggestion is great!

I have a pocket in my bag specifically for my cell phone. I keep it zippered when the phone is in there. When I am charging the phone, which is right on the counter near the door, I keep the zipper open. I always check the zippers on my bag before I leave. If I see an open zipper, I know I am missing something.
