WE all know how easy it is to misplace our keys or phone and then spend ages looking for them, but it could now be a distant memory thanks to Poundland.
Savvy shoppers in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook have spotted a £1 tracker tool on sale at the retailer that you connect to your smartphone.

The “TrackR pixel” can be used for more items than just keys, so if you’re a forgetful one, it could be the perfect solution for you.
The product comes with a Bluetooth tracker that you add to your key ring, or whatever it is you often find yourself misplacing.
Then you need to download the free Tracker app and sync it with your phone through bluetooth to turn it into a finder. The app is available for both Android and iPhone users.
To find what you’ve lost, simply open the app and you’ll see a map of where it’s located.
At the press of a button, the tag also rings as well as lights up, so you can find what’s missing in a flash.
Even better, you can press the key ring tag to make your misplaced phone ring – even if you’ve put it on silent.
Keep in mind it can only track items within bluetooth range (usually up to 100ft), so if you’ve misplaced items on the other side of town, you’re unlikely to find it this way.

One shopper who posted about the tracker tool on Facebook wrote: “I got five from Poundland today. One each for my dogs and one for my daughters on days out.”
Her posted has so far racked up more than 1,700 likes and comments.
Another shopper said she found it a Poundland store in Stonedale retail park in Liverpool, and even her post has achieved more than 1,000 comments.
The tracking tools are also on sale at other retailers, but for a much higher price tag.
For example, Amazon is currently selling tracker tools by the brand for £19.97.
While you’d have to fork out less on eBay at £5.95.
Poundland has more than 500 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one using its store locator tool.
