In our former life. When we lived in town as DINKies we bought this very nifty doormat.
It says Cellphone, Keys, Wallet.
I love the simplicity of it and it did help me remember to bring all my stuff.
When we moved to our house 5 plus years ago the mat had seen better days and when my helpful FIL tried to bang it free of dirt against a wall he managed to tear off a corner of it.
Now it resides in our shed.
I happened upon an identical doormat at an online shop a few weeks ago and decided it was time to get one again.
Unfortunately when it arrived I felt it was a bit small for our hall – or maybe it was just that I had gotten used to the larger one we had.
So I flipped the larger one and placed the new one on the back and traced the outline. Then I cut out a hole in our larger mat and taped the new one down with duct tape on the back.
