Idea: If you don't want to hang a key hook (or if your landlord won't let you), get a key catchall. Having a designated place to place your keys when you walk through the door will save you from misplacing your keys and the inevitable frantic search to locate them.
Get it: Finding a key catchall is easier than you think — you may already have one in your home. A jewelry tray is a great option. If you don't have one, try the Ms.Box Leather Catchall Tray ($20).
