If you’re headed out tonight for some holiday cheer, be forewarned that you just may lose your smart phone.

New stats say Saturday evening at 6pm is the most common time to lose things.

Perhaps when the beverages start flowing, we become more forgetful than usual. What other things to we typically lose on a Saturday night?

New research released by Mozy, a provider of data solutions, says more items are lost at 6 p.m. on Saturdays in December than at any other time of the year. Holiday parties and malls suck our stuff right up it appears.

The research shows:

— More than 39 percent of Americans lose two or more belongings a year. The average American has misplaced nearly $250 worth of possessions in the past 12 months. The vast majority of those items are found again, but about 25 percent of the lost items are gone forever.

— The most commonly lost item is a smartphone, which accounts for 40 percent of all items lost by men and 33 percent for women.

The top ten things that go missing across the globe are:

1. Smartphone
2. Jewelry
3. Sunglasses
4. Keys
5. Bank/credit card
6. Clothing
7. Umbrella
8. Purse/wallet
9. ID
10. Paperwork

Umbrellas aren’t a big lost item in Texas because it never seems to rain. But we can lose a cell phone with the best of ’em.

Here’s a reason NOT to lose that phone. You have a chance to text in a code word this weekend on Mix 93-1 and have us Stuff Your Stocking! Stay tuned for the code word, and text it to 89000 to win a Wii U, a $100 gift card to Super One Foods, and season passes to Splash Kingdom Water Park….other things you don’t want to misplace. Good luck!
