Increase Your Odds Of Getting Your Lost Stuff Back With SendMeHome

23Sep08

If you ever had the horrifying experience pleasure of going away to camp as a child then you may recall your Mother sewing labels inside all of your undergarments so that they wouldn’t end up in the wrong hands.  Well, even though it may have been embarrassing at the time, she may have been onto something.  SendMeHome wants help you keep tabs on your stuff, and it’s not stopping at your Hanes t-shirt.

The way it works is simple:  You register for an account and input various items that you tend to worry about loosing.  This could be anything from your iPod to your favorite baseball cap.  Each item you add will carry its own unique ID.  You can then print out labels that say “If lost, please return at SendMeHome.com”.  Hopefully you’ll remember to write the code on the labels, otherwise it won’t work.  You can also purchase custom labels in different sizes from the SendMeHome store.

If someone finds your item, they can visit SendMeHome.com, enter in the code on your label, and tell you how you can get your stuff back.  It seems easy enough and actually, the site is extremely easy to use.  The only thing I wonder is, if someone is going to go to the trouble of entering in all of their possessions into the site, why not just by a label maker and put your name and address on everything you own?  If people grasp onto SendMeHome though, it could prove to be very useful.  To see SendMeHome in action, watch the screencast below:

    it’s great idea but it doesn’t work!!!

  2. I don’t see this as much help. How does the unique identifier help? As you said, you can just as easily print your address or phone number on a label… I just don’t get it.
