"My son is 15 years old and kind of scatterbrained -- he loses lots of stuff."

Mine was that way too (he's 19 now and amazingly self-sufficient in his own way), and when I became a single parent and had to give him his own set of house keys at age 9, I was sure I'd become a frequent flyer at the localy locksmith. Amazingly he only lost one set of keys after about 4 years.

I think somehow they know what's important--I mean really important--and manage to hang on to it. We did put the keys on a string that he wore under his clothes whenever he left the house--became automatic to have them--so perhaps the money belt suggestion could work.

And I think your $ estimate is a good one. 15 yo's eat an amazing amount!

I hope it goes well!
