Some Place Safe

I was recently searching for the box for my birth control pill.

It has all of the prescription information stickered to it, which includes the code thingy to have it refilled.

Over a month ago, I had taken my pill packet out of the box, put the packet in my purse (so I know where it is to take it every day) and then said to Boyfriend:

"I am going to put this here so I don't lose it."

And then I put the box there...some place safe...so I wouldn't lose it.

WELL, guess what happened.

That's right, I lost it!

I am Queen of putting things "Some Place Safe" and then having no idea where the hell I put them.

I am so mad and frustrated at this, particularily this incident because Splat was concieved when I was using 'back-up' birth control, that I have decided that I should create "Some Place Safe".

I am considering buying a rubbermaid container of sorts, and printing, then affixing this picture to it:

This is the inside of a piece of my furniture that Shake'n'Bake likes to fill with her toys.
Apparently my two year old mastered "Some Place Safe" before I did.

Then, I can put EVERYTHING that is important into the rubbermaid container, and when I go to retrieve said object in the future, I will know exactly where it is.

It will be "Some Place Safe".

And then I will stop losing things.

Is there "Some Place Safe" that you have to put all of your important things?
