Apparently, if you have too much weight on your keys it will eventually pull the ignition out of alignment and your car simply wont start one day. To start with, that frightened me. Both the inconvenience of not being able to start my car and the bill of having to fix the ignition, and so, I separated up my keys.
Of course what happens next is that I arrived at a job unable to get in and had to drive home and get the keys (turning my initial twenty minute drive into an hour) and then being angry and frustrated at being late/unorganised and having the rest of my day run an hour late.
So I put them in the glove box of my car - and promptly swapped cars with my husband, drove to work, discovered I didn't have my keys, drove home, got the keys and drove back to work again... Achieving absolutely nothing, adding to my frustration and the greenhouse gas problems to boot!
A solution to my key shenanigans needed to found...
Here's what I did...
Green-ness: Not very green at all. New/plastic/single use hook - but it has saved me in petrol, greenhouse gas emissions and in tantrum energy.
Frugal-ness: $2 Pretty darn frugal when compared to replacing the ignition.
Time cost: about 15 seconds to "install"!
Skill level: Just like cutting and pasting without the cutting!
Fun -ness: Knowing that a $2 hook saved you a small fortune and makes you seem really organised - great fun!
