Do you always forget things in a hotel room?
A vacation in a destination of your choice can turn out to be a nightmare and a stressful encounter through little things like forgetting a valuable item in your hotel room.
This is further complicated by the fact that trying to trace your forgotten belongings with hotel management can be painful, stressful and sometimes impossible.
One important thing you should always do before leaving the hotel is to set a reminder on your phone to check your valuables, documents, and other items that you might easily forget.
When unpacking your items in the hotel room, establish a routine of putting things in the same place you put items in a hotel room, regardless of your destination. For example, always keep your cell phone next to the bed and your jewelry on the desk. That way, you’ll remember to check those spots before you leave the room.
Instead of “scattering” your items such as jewelry, documents and other items all over the hotel wardrobe, drawers, cupboards, bathroom and toilet, have a bag that you could use. That way, you’ll have your stuff in a big, central place that you won’t forget.
If you are traveling with objects and documents that you risk forgetting, make a list. Set an alarm so that this list rings either on the evening of your departure or at a time that suits you. This way you will be checking the counter to make sure all items on the list are packed.
Bedside tables, drawers and hotel cabinets are the most likely places to forget to check before leaving your room. Use them with caution. It is advisable to use the table, the drawer and the top of the cupboard to place the objects because they are unlikely to be forgotten at the time of payment.
Plan to always do a “final sweep” of your hotel room away from any distractions (kids, phone calls) when performing this task.
