A quick tip today for when you are shopping at any store you take your items out in a cart. If you are like me you have your purse in the seat of the cart most of the time. Just like you see I have in this photo above (I did it this time just to take the picture LOL). When you get out in the parking lot to your car be careful not to leave your purse in that area while you walk to your trunk and start putting your bags in. This is an easy target for someone to drive by and grab your purse out of the front of the cart and speed off. This actually happened to my aunt and I have heard of many other stories. I know we like to feel safe in our regular stores around town, but this can happen anywhere in a city of any size. Instead take your purse out of the cart and put it on your shoulder or into the trunk to the side while you load your bags in.
Better safe than sorry. Have you, or someone you know, had this happen?
