Don’t let a stolen purse happen to you!
Here’s a handy tip that might save your wallet someday.
When I go to the store, I usually put my purse in the front of the cart. I also have a bad habit of stepping away from the cart to look at labels, fetch something from a bottom shelf, or grab some apples in a crowded aisle.
I’m usually not very far away- a step or two- but still my purse is unattended in a public place.
My solution? Strap your purse into the cart! Use the child safety strap and buckle it right into the child seat.
This way no one can run by and grab it, or casually snatch it up and keep walking like nothing happened.
If they want your purse, they’ll have to unhook it or take the whole cart giving you time to act.
Another tip? Keep your purse closed. Zip the zippers, snap the snaps, and don’t keep your wallet on top. That way a thief can’t grab it easily. Keep your phone in your hand or your pocket- don’t leave it on top of your purse where anyone can get it!
