Keyed up…

Do you have keys to nowhere?

You know the ones.   You have a key to a padlock you can’t find or if you are like us. We couldn’t find the key to a lock so we cut the lock only to find the key later. OOPS, hey it happens.

How about you have the key to an old flame’s apartment but the flame is out or they moved and filed a restraining order against you? I’m going to go out on a limb and say you really don’t need those keys anymore.

Did you have a key to a friend’s vehicle for their emergency locked my keys in the car buddy but the buddy totaled the vehicle?

How about this your old neighborhood has a pool or is gated and has a walk thru gate but you moved 3 states away and failed to return the keys.

Do you still have “extra” keys to your prior homes? How about any spare keys to you’re parent’s home or old apartments still hanging around?


See this is why you want to change the locks immediately when you buy or move into a new home. You have no idea who has keys. Could be the dog walker, the handyman, the kids, the babysitter, the housekeeper or the pool person that all could have copies of your house keys. EEK, Right?

How about hotel and motel key or key cards?keys-233062_1280

Those are keys to nowhere anywhere important. These are absolutely not needed and so they are now cluttering your space. How many of these keys to nowhere are still on your key ring that you carry? I will not even ask why you have them much less why you still carry them.  Let them go.

You can get organized and reduce the clutter in your life. I am here to help.

Thanks Pamela

  1. We moved into our new house sept. 2015 and the first thin we did was change all the locks! My in-laws thought it was excessive… but after I explained how we didn’t know who had keys to the house they understood. I decluttered all my keys the day we moved in lol.

  2. My partner has a large bunch of keys…he knows exactly where they all came from…he doesn’t use them, has no need for them and STILL won’t throw them away! *sighs despairingly…*
