    Advice from a retired cop: 10 Things You Should Never Carry in Your Purse or Wallet I would also add setting your purse in a shopping cart and then leaving it there while you turn your back is a very bad idea. I can't count the number of purses I see with the tops open and money and/or...

    So, tell me what kind of purse you're carrying these days. Right now, mine is somewhat similar to this one in black. It's smooth leather, not pebbled, but it's the 'wallet on a string' style that I can wear cross-body. I keep some cash, credit cards, license, etc. in the slotted wallet...

    Ran into Salvation Army in search of jeans today- found a pair I likes ok for $2.50, but my big find was a real D+B 'charm' purse for $5! In almost perfect condition.....this is VERY cheap even for there, I am thinking whoever was pricing that day did not realize the retail value of it. Happy dance!

    A friend told me te other day that it was bad luck for me to leave my purse/work bag on the floor, that all my money would fall out of my life. This almost sounds logical, something about respecting your money. Is anyone up for an experiment? For two weeks never let your purse touch the floor...
