I have always liked having all my keys on one key ring. With just one key ring, it’s hard to forget a key or grab the wrong set of keys. But there are times when I need to take just a car and house key with me in my pocket or evening bag or when I’m going out walking, I just need the house key not the entire bulky key ring. A while ago, I got tired of fussing with the big, bulky, tangled key chain and fighting with it when I needed to get a key off of it.
That frustration is long gone since I figured out a quick and easy way to set up my key ring.
Each car key and fob is attached to its own ring and the house key is attached to its own ring. Then each of these 3 rings are attached to a central ring. This way the keys don’t get tangled with each other and it’s easy to locate which key you want.
This same configuration worked great when I had office keys on my key ring. The office keys were on their own ring attached to the central ring. That way it was easy to remove the office keys when I didn’t need them on the weekend or on vacation. It was just as easy to carry just the office keys in my pocket at work and leave my personal keys with my purse.
Until just a couple of months ago, I used to have a plastic lacing thread braided “handle” that my daughter made me attached to center ring. I miss that “handle” and am hoping to get another for my birthday from one of my crafty children. (hint, hint)
This configuration is so easy and works great no matter how many keys you have. Give it a try and see what you think.
