WFMW: Charging a Cell Phone

(I'm sorry that I've been so derelict in my bloggy duties! I have many new exciting posts for you, but they are just going to have to wait until after our vacation. If all goes well, I might get some posted before I leave.)

I am really forgetful, and nothing irks me like leaving my cell phone at home. I came up with a perfect solution, and have not left my cell behind even once:

All I do is tuck the charging phone into my purse. I can't take my purse anywhere without disconnecting the phone. Works for me!

I do the exact same thing...too many times I've left it sitting on the counter :) Glad to know I'm not alone.

I'm with Jack's Mommy- that would work for me if I remembered my purse!

Carol said...

Great idea! I think I saw it in a magazine recently. Supposedly you never remember to charge it that way, too?

Carol said...

I meant...forget..you never forget to charge it.

I can't even remember my own name half the time.

Great idea! I think this will work for me.

Great tip! Thanks.

That's a great idea.

I use my daughter - she'll say "Mom, do you have your cellie?" because I cannot tell you the times we've had to turn around and come back home. :)

Gayle said...

Great idea! Why didn't I think of that. I hate leaving home, realizing my phone is still plugged into the wall. What did we ever do before cell phones?

BTW, love the comment you left about what your little angel said in the middle of Arby's. Made me snort!
