I think everyone can agree that losing stuff is the WORST.
But there are a few gadgets that can help you take back control.
I’ve noticed a few people using the tile tracker to keep track of their stuff, and it seems to work. You just attach it to your keychain (or anything else you don't want to lose), and you can find lost items by using the app on your phone.

But recently I came across two other tracking devices that promise to help you find your stuff…and I wanted to see if they worked too.
TrackR is small, and can attach to pretty much anything. (Photo: TrackR)
This is a small Bluetooth enabled device that you attach to your valuables.
The first step is to download the app and sync the TrackR to your phone. Then, simply attach it to something you don’t want to lose —like your keys or a water bottle. If you lose that item, you can open the app and sound an alarm that with help you locate your locate it. This feature works if the lost item is within 100 feet.
If the item is lost in a distant location, the device is enabled with Crowd GPS that will provide GPS coordinates so you can track it down.

This tracking device also uses bluetooth to find and secure your valuables.
After downloading the app, make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is on, and pair the the SecuriTag by pushing the button on the side.
If you attach the SecuriTag to, let’s say, your camera, and you misplace it while you’re out, users can sound the alarm via SecuriTag’s app to track it down.
Cost: Starting at $39.99
