Ladies... Watch Your Purses - Mon, 11/4/13 4:46 PM
My neighbor had her wallet lifted from her purse in the grocery store.  She thinks it was a team, a woman approached and asked her questions to distract her while the other person lifted her wallet.  She had her purse resting in that middle section of her grocery cart which you should never do, which I'm guilty of doing sometimes, even though I cover it up with groceries, and I'm not even gonna do that anymore. 
 
With the holidays approaching and more shopping than usual, thought this info might help.

And don't leave your purse or phone on the front seat of your car, if your alone, while gassing up!

When I go shopping or to a congested area I tend to leave my purse at home and carry a wallet with a wide rubber band wrapped around it , its a little harder for me to pull out the wallet but I know that a pick pocket would never get it without me feeling them yanking on my pocket.

I'm amazed how many women leave their purses in grocery shopping carts and then wander off checking the shelves for food.

I've never been able to figure that out, either. Or the ones who leave their purses in their unlocked cars while running in somewhere. It's an invitation to steal.
 
Me, I only carry a purse under duress, if I don't have enough pockets for all my stuff. Mostly in summer, or when I've had to dress up for something. 95% of the time, I just keep everything in my pockets. And my wallet stays in my pants pocket, especially if I'm somewhere I'll be leaving my coat out of my sight.
