How to help discourage purse snatchers.

I went out with my mother-in-law the other day, and she tied her purse straps to the cart. Just loop the straps through the cart and then loop around the straps. She laughed and said if someone graps it, they will have a harder time getting it. Just wanted to pass this on to my friends on the corner.

I recently started tying my purse strap to the cart when I am shopping. I think it is a great idea, and it will make it harder for any purse snatcher.

I do that as well also helps keep the purse closed so no one can just reach in and grab from the wallet.

I do that too. My purse has
zippers so no one can just reach in
and grab whatever.
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less
