Ooooh, Pat, that's awful!!! I don't know of any way to find that glove except trying to remember where you put things and check them all out.
One thing you have to do is to check and be sure you don't have a bunch of stuff in a pile so that you can't see what's down on the bottom. If you have a pile, pick the things up one by one, and put them down in different places so you can work your way down to the bottom.
I think it's a good idea to pick one spot (like Nick's apartment) and put everything on the floor there. Also, you can try to drop things into the wastebasket in the apartment, and if you don't need them, they'll disappear and you don't have to worry about them any more. If you will need them, they won't go in...
