A common error in English is to confuse “loose” (the opposite of “tight”) and “lose” (to misplace something). If you are one of those writers, the following tips may help. Choose whichever one sticks in your head!
Whatever you may think of the term, “loosey-goosey” is a nice little mnemonic.
“The loose moose didn’t want to lose his shoes.”
“If ‘loose’ has two letter o’s, what happens if you lose one?”
Hope this helps!
