I don’t know about you, but a lot of times I am nervous that I am going to lose one of my personal items. Especially when I go to shows I could be so distracted that often times I am constantly checking my purse to make sure all my vital items are still in there – keys, camera, wallet, sometimes my Nook or my glasses as well. The fact is, if I leave them somewhere – how will anyone know that they belong to me to track me down if they find my stuff? Well, bungee tags has found a solution to that.
Bungee is a virtual lost and found system. Simply purchase a set of tags from www.bungeetags.com, activate them through text message and then start attaching them to your things. They come in various sizes and types. There are thin stickers in 3 shapes – a rectangle, a boomerang shape and a long line (perfect for sticking it to the arm of your reading or sun glasses!) and then there are thicker tags which include a card for your wallet, a card with a hole through it to stick on your keys and then harder stickers in the rectangle, boomerang and line shapes as well.
The system couldn’t be easier to use. I opened my package and immediately activated my serial number. I got a text reply back right away that everything was now linked to my phone number (and email address – in the case of a lost phone!) To try it out I decided to text that I “found” one of my items from my Google Voice number. Again, immediately I was texted saying that my item had been found (including the person who found its phone number). I was then anonymously put in contact with the finder so that we could work out details on how to get my item back.

I am happy to let my readers know that I am able to make bungee tags available to you at a discount! Simply use the promo code: MOMSRULE for 50% off any of the coverage plans offered on their website. (FYI: This makes the 2-year package only $9.50 – a no brainer!)
Of course, the success of this product all depends on if you have a good person finding your stuff and texting the number you stuck on it. However, I choose to believe that more people are good than bad and if given the opportunity to attempt to return your stuff, they will!
