Lost Debit Card

I lost my debit card.  I have no idea how or where and that is very unlike me.  I'm really not sure if it was stolen or I simply lost it.  I feel like such a mess and so irresponsible.   Just when I was starting to feel like a responsible adult (I mean I opened and fully funded a Roth IRA and everything!).

However, it was easy to deactivate and order a replacement card.  In 5-7 business days I will have a new card and life will be normal again. Has anyone else ever misplaced a debit card?  Did you find it anywhere? I need some ideas of where to look for the old card. It's driving me crazy that I can't find it.


  1. It happens, even to perfectly able adults. Try not to stress about it. I have lost several in my life. A couple never found and one I found slid down in the really hard to reach spot between the seats in the car and the other my toddlers took and played with. It could have fallen out of your purse easily and some Good Samaritan just threw it away. Either way, you have canceled so no harm can come.

    It does incredibly suck not knowing what happened. I can tell that is your nature. That feeling will pass though. This does NOT mean you are not a responsible adult. You very much are. These things just happen sometimes.

    1. Thank you for the tips! I will keep looking. I just still can't believe I lost the thing!
