Use strap to secure purse in your cart

How to stop thieves

I thought I would share my experience while recently grocery shopping at my local market.

I was wandering up and down the aisles, when an older gentleman came up to me and politely chastised me for leaving my purse in the child’s seat of the cart and turning my back on it.

He suggested that I take the child’s restraint strap and loop it through the handle on my purse. Such a simple thing. And since my purse is very heavy to keep on my shoulder while shopping, this was a great idea.

I thanked the gentleman for giving me such a handy tip. This way, no one can walk off with your purse. Since the man was so kind, I thought I would share his idea.
