Things like this happen everyday either at home or in the workplace. Start giving things a permanent place so you know where to find it. Have a shoe bin in the front hall, or put the remote on the table next to you. Keep your keys on a hook before you walk out the door or your wallet always in your top dresser drawer. Find designated places to place certain objects so you can save time and not waste it.
