Losing my scissors

When I was at secondary school, I remember having a plastic key coil, with a belt trigger hook, like the ones shown in the image below.


During recent days, I‘ve been thinking that perhaps I should invest in one for my needlecraft scissors, as I seem to have developed a habit of misplacing them. The other option is to invest in a long chain (as in jewellery), which my scissors can be suspended from.

For example, late yesterday afternoon, I had taken my scissors from the lounge and into the kitchen. I was about to go out, and was in something of a rush, so instead of putting the scissors back in the lounge (where I would see them), I had put them in a drawer where I keep my kitchen scissors, without thinking.

Several hours later, when I needed to use the scissors again, I drove myself potty trying to remember where I had put them. It was a good 12 hours later when I eventually located them.

Oh wow, I'd forgetten all about them! They're a great idea, although if I had one for everything I kept losing, they'd be attached to me head to toe, lol!

It's just dawned on me that there would be nowhere to clip the trigger hook, if I was wearing an item of clothing without belt loops (such as my PJs).
