I’ve been doing this for years so, I didn’t really think much of it but if you don’t do this, you need to… Police Are Urging Women to Strap Their Purses To Carts While Shopping to Prevent Theft.
The holiday shopping season is in full swing and that means crowds are everywhere and unfortunately, that means thieves are too.
While we like to think of the holidays as the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also the time of the year some people use to take advantage of others who are busy or distracted.
So, how can you keep your purse, money and personal belongings protected?
You can of course, use a cross-body bag or just bring in your credit/debit card and keep the rest at home.
However, if you insist on bringing your entire purse, you can strap your purse to the cart so it’s not easily able to steal.
Basically, you take the straps of the child seat belt on the cart and wrap them around the handles of your purse and then snap it closed.
If you have kids or the cart doesn’t have straps, use a carabiner clip to attach your purse to the cart.
Police are urging women to do this in order to protect themselves from theft during this time of year and it’s brilliant (which is also why I’ve been doing it for years).
It only takes a minute to do and can save you from being a victim of theft this holiday season.
