A few years ago I read about a great tip to keep your purse more secure while you are shopping. Now, to clarify, I have never had anyone take my purse or even try to take my purse. I truly believe that 99% of people are good, honest, and caring.
However, my husband is more cautious. His father was in law enforcement, and when you have a family member in law enforcement, your view of the world tends to be a little more cynical – I suppose it is because law enforcement often deals with the 1%.
But anyway, taking an extra step to keep my purse a little safer gives me peace of mind. If only so that I can tell my husband that I am being careful!!
It is simple – I clip the child restraint around my purse handle. That way when I am completely ignoring my cart as I am wont to do, it is not as easy for someone to grab my purse.
