I frequently visit the grocery store in my work out attire, gym shorts with pockets. i frequently enter the store holding both my phone and wallet in one hand. If I’m thinking about them, no problem. However after setting my phone down once at a self check out cash register (leaving it) and leaving it in a shopping cart in the parking lot of the grocery store, I acquired a phone strap and frequently hang it around my neck.

I mentioned gym shorts which have short pockets, and on one occasion several months ago, with my wallet in a pocket, after returning to my car, I discovered my wallet was missing. After searching for it, including returning to the store I discovered as I sat down it had slipped out of my pocket fell down and slid under the driver’s seat.

On Monday I left the house holding a box, phone and wallet headed for the gym. To make a semi-long story short, at the gym, I discovered my wallet was missing and several hours later discovered it laying in the grass in the front yard next to where I park the car.

Now besides the possible senior moments perception of this narrative, which requires no discussion, 😛 I’d like to ask does anyone have experience with the credit card sized USB trackers that can be placed in your wallet and located with a phone app?

I’ve been looking online and see some with 1 year batteries (that then the card must be replaced) and others with rechargeable batteries that last 2-5 months per charge, and one with a replaceable battery. They run $20-40.

Can you leave your wallet in the car and use your phone for contactless payment?

I don’t know if you wear an Apple Watch, but I use to it at the check out 99% of the time. Phone and wallet never leave my pocket or even comes with me.

I was just going to say the same thing, I use my Apple Watch for nearly everything now. It's saved my ass a couple of times now when I've left my wallet at home.

Maybe 6 years ago, I started keeping my phone in my front right pocket only and keys/(very slim) wallet in my front left pocket only. Also, before I leave the house I do a PKW (phone keys wallet) shoutout. It‘s become common to shout it out among my friends whenever we’re departing.

Those two habits have virtually eliminated me looking for that crap.
