I put my passport in a 'safe' place about 6 months ago and now I'm trying to renew it for a trip and I can't find it!!

Any ideas where my 'safe' place might be? I can predict a weekend of ripping this whole house apart sad.gif

The back of the pantry? Filing cabinet? In a box in your wardrobe?

Check any bags you have ever taken overseas or where ever you keep travel stuff - I once decided all "travel" related things should go together, which sounds sensible until you're ripping your office apart at 3am because you're sure you filed it!

My BIL found his in the pocket of a suit jacket - he worked out that the last time he went o/s hed'd gone to a wedding straight from the airport, so the passport went into the suit pocket instead of staying in his car.

Mind you - it took 3 of us (Me, DH & BIL) about 8 hours to find it after searching not only his unit, but his business premises as well.

This happened to me. I looked EVERYWHERE, I'd reported it 'lost', even though I knew it was in the house. A trip was pending and it was extremely stressful.

All of a sudden, it came to me. It was in a box, still in the travel wallet from my last trip. Do you have this kind of stuff stashed somewhere?

I was thinking about going to Fiji and pulled it out to check it because I knew it was close to expiry. Then decided to not to go and didn't put it back, put it in the 'safe' place! Stupid safe place!

On top of the fridge or some other high, out of the way safe place.
Bookshelf
Bedside table drawer.
What room were you in when you were looking at the expiry date?

That reminds me that I should put ours away.  They are still on top of my chest of drawers from our trip in Sept.

Old handbag or suitcase pockets
Under your bed in a box.
'random ca*p' box
Have you used it for 'points' in checking ID anywhere?

I swear someone comes in and moves everything from my safe place to somewhere else  just to watch my reaction when I come back to look for it.

Good luck, I hope that you find it original.gif
