Gym locker keys….…
The list goes on and on.
Before you know it, you have a bulky set of metal that's weighing you down.
Seriously – you could use this 25-pound ring for weight lifting!
So how to deal with a bulky set of keys and simplify what you carry?
In this article and video I share with you 3 tips.
Let's get started!
1. Simplify the Number of Keys you Carry
Sounds obvious – right?
But “key creep” happens to the best of us 🙂
Look at every key and ask
Have I used this in the last year?
Did I use this key in the last month?
Can your P.O. Box key be left in your truck? (I do this – as well I always drive my truck to the post office!)
Do you need to carry around your storage container keys when you only use them once a month?
Can you employ a key valet that allows you to easily slip off keys you rarely use and reattach when needed?
Ask the questions, and only keep the essentials.
2. Use a Key Wallet
Key wallets have become one of the rarer men's wallet styles in department stores, but fortunately can be easily purchased online.
In my experience, you want to go with a wallet that has a strong key ring attachment – rarely will the leather wear out faster than a poorly made key attachment system!
My favorite key wallets?
- Osgood Marley Eight Hook Case
- Teemzone Leather KeyBag
- Teemzone Leather Key Case (a unique shape for car alarms)
Key wallets are ideal for a man with multiple keys because they arrange the keys in an organized manner. They zip up to allow the keys to be tucked away neatly in a front or back pocket.
3. Just Own The Bulky Key Look
No way to get around carrying a dozen keys?
Required to carry 25 keys as you're the lock-master for your school?
No problem – then just OWN the look!
Invest in a professional key ring that is designed to organize a large amount of keys and gives you flexibility of movement.
FYI – make sure to check with your employer to see if this can be purchased as a business expense.
But even if it can't – the time and ease that comes with having the right tool for the job is always worth the investment for a professional.
