    I have lost something atleast once every month.
    I've lost my wallet on the bus, lost my pencil case after the exam and more!
    How do you guys prevent your belongings from going missing or being stolen?
    Would appreciate your advice
    Thanks in advance!

    Keep a journal and write everything you do in it. This way you'll know where you lost objects

    Always do the old double check and pocket pat before you leave anywhere to check you haven't forgotten anything. Once you get into the habit of doing this is becomes so much less likely you'll forget anything. I always do the old "keys, phone and purse" pocket check before I leave somewhere.

    Also always keep your bag closed and zipped and always put things away as soon as you're done with them.

    If these are habits you will catch yourself from forgetting things all the time.
