I cannot find my watch or my wide-tooth comb anywhere. I purchased the wide-tooth comb this weekend, used it on Sunday after I took a shower and placed it back in the bathroom drawer. On Monday, it wasn't there! I took off my watch on Friday to go to the gym and then I didn't put it back on all weekend - which is rare, since I almost always wear my watch!

I searched in every drawer and cupboard of my bathroom for the comb and did not find it. I tore apart my bedroom for my watch and it's nowhere. Now, the comb I could care less about since it is very easily replaceable. But my Fossil watch was $75 and I bought it 3 years ago and I love it.

I'm hoping that the watch will turn up when I start packing up my room. I know it'll turn up when I stop actually looking for it - which is what always happens! I just don't want to shell out the money to purchase a new watch when I was/am content with my current one. :(

What do you do when you misplace expensive things?

Update: I found the watch. I literally just published this post and decided to dump out my purse to see if my watch was there - and of course it fell out! Hmm, I was looking for it, too. Haha. Now... where's that comb...

I use these little clips for my hair that come in packages of six or eight, and somehow I mysteriously lose every single one of them within 3-4 months. I think that if I only had one or two clips instead of a supply of them, I would actually be less likely to lose them all b/c I would take better care of remembering where I put them! And it's not like I'm haphazardly taking them out of my hair and leaving them around- I either take them out and put them on my dresser or right into my makeup bag. Mystery!

I'm glad to hear that you found your watch. Good luck finding the comb!

I'm somehow really good at losing my earrings...of course I only lose one. I actually just bought a pair of earrings on Saturday and put them on for the first time Monday, and by lunch I'd misplaced one of them!

I get so out of sorts when that happens...mad that I lost something I just got, and I keep hoping that I'll find it...and I never do! :(

I never lose anything. My kids take it, hide it, forget to return it ... gone forever. My kids are financial drains:)
