FoundIt Review and Giveaway

With Big J starting Kindergarten tomorrow (gulp) I know that things will get lost all the time. Not to mention that we have a lot of electronics that we carry around with us that would be very expensive to replace. While I know that some people who find lost items are not nice enough to try to find the actual owner I want to be able to assist the kind samaritans who actually want to return lost items. It steps FoundIt!

What is FoundIt?

We all lose stuff. At FoundIt, they help us get it back. That's it in a nutshell.

They know how it feels to lose something important. So they started FoundIt™ as a lost and found that connects the Finder and the Owner (the FoundIt™ member) instantly. They are a lost item retrieval network. It works great for anything that's easily lost but hard to replace, like phones, and laptops, keys and cameras, jackets and tennis rackets. (All while keeping your private information private.) It's a simple way for people to return your lost items.

When you sign up for an account, they'll send you labels/stickers with your unique FoundIt ID. (You only need to register once; the ID is yours for life.) Then, if you ever lose something with your FoundIt ID in a taxi, on a trail, or in a restaurant, the good people who find it have a simple way to get it back to you. Visit their website to see how it works. 

They believe in your privacy and being honest and up-front with their members. They'll never sell, rent or otherwise abuse your trust or your information. No ads or sneaky cookies. No following you around town to see what kind of ice cream you buy. (In case you're curious, they love strawberry.)

What I received:

MacDaddy Family Package — $24.99

  • 4 years access to FoundIt Network
  • Set of 62 stickers
  • 2 key tags
  • 3 bag tags
  • 1 luggage tag/ID card
  • 2 round tags (pet tag)


The stickers hold up well on items, even ones like my cell phone that go in and out of pockets and my purse. I also like the fact that I do not have to list my address and name on my items. This is especially important when it comes to the safety of Big J & Little J. I always remember hearing that you should not put certain information like name, address and phone number on your child's information because someone could use that to gain their trusts. Now the stickers just have my code on it. This way when someone finds a lost item they go the the FoundIt website and put in the code. The person who finds the item then can choose how they want to be contacted back about returning the item; phone, e-mail, text or even a simply anonymous note saying something like, "I found your phone and left it with the coffee shop manager.". I would then get an e-mail or text message from FoundIt alerting me that my item was found. Privacy for all parties involved.

Where to purchase:
