Top 5 Things You Lose While Holiday Shopping
Posted on November 25, 2015 10:48

It’s easy to leave your wallet or keys at the mall while you're shopping for the perfect gift. What’s not easy is trying to open the locked car door with 10 shopping bags in hand and no keys. Don't lose your head, ANKR your stuff like all the unlosers we know. Check out this list of some of the most commonly left-behind items during the holiday season.

1. Keys

Ah, keys. If you’re anything like us, this is the one item that you consistently misplace on the reg. How easy is it to leave your keys on the counter while you're checking out? Or in the cart at the grocery store? Or in the other jacket that you left on the back of the chair at the... no wait, in your other pair of pants when you changed out of them at the gym... Come to think of it, where ARE my keys? 

2. Wallet/Purse

It's Black Friday afternoon, and you’ve just left lunch at Chic-Fil-A. Do you, A: Get a notification on your iPhone, as you sit down in the car, that you forgot your wallet; or do you B: Later realize you have no way to pay for Legos after you've been standing in line for 20 minutes to checkout. Do yourself and your son who has been begging for Lego Dimensions for Christmas a favor and not forget your wallet at Chic-Fil-A. Put a couple ANKRs in your own stocking or just go ahead and open them now. Just think of it as a secret santa to yourself! 'Tis the season?

3. Car

It seems like everyone on planet earth flocks to malls and department stores this time of year. That's a lot of cars in one single parking lot, and nothing's worse than having to park in the middle of nowhere because the mall's packed. Until you forget where you parked when you're ready to leave. That's much, much worse.

4. Kids

It's hectic. People are everywhere. And if you're one of the brave souls that brought their kid shopping, you probably deserve some sort of award. The lady eyeing the coffeemaker you want to buy for your mother-in-law distracts you, and you turn your back to little Johnny for two seconds. Now he's in the toy aisle picking out all the matchbox cars he wants to add to his collection. One stress-induced heart attack later, you've found him, but someone's swiped the last coffeemaker on the shelf. Ah, children.

5. Your Mind

We all have those days plagued by Murphy’s Law, and we just happen to have way more of them this time of year. If something can go wrong, it inevitably will. The holidays are about spending time with your loved ones, and the stress of finding the perfect gift shouldn't take away from that. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a device that could help keep your head on your shoulders? There is, and it’s called an ANKR. Maybe Santa will bring you one this year.
