What’s the most valuable item you have ever lost?

captureWe’re all running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to finish Christmas  shopping and next thing you know you’ve left your Visa card on some store counter and you’ve got no idea where your keys are!

Here are some helpful tips:

First:  beware of Saturdays at 6 p.m.!   A new survey found that more items are lost at 6 Saturday evenings in December than at any other time of the year!

The most commonly lost items are: smartphones, jewelry, sunglasses, keys and credit cards, in that order.

The good news is about 55% of lost items are returned by a stranger, but only 12% are re-discovered by their owners.

    The most valuable item that I have lost was my Lenovo Ideapad that I left in a shopping cart at Wal-mart. An expensive reminder that you should leave electronics at home where they belong.

    The most valuable thing I lost was my son’s laptop. We were in a hurry and had forgotten that we brought it with us. Fortunately, it was found by an employee and returned to us the next day. Now, I warn my kids to be accountable for their things or just leave it at home.

    The most valuable thing that I ever lost was of sentimental value. It was my high school class ring that was stolen from my home while my son & I were at prayer & bible study. It was the only thing that I had that was exactly the same as my twin sister's whom we lost to Lupus a couple of years prior to that.

    I lost my keys in a case of 20 oz cokes from the school fundraiser that went to Baton Rouge to someone that my daughter sold the cokes too.
