SECURING YOUR COUPONS
Heard horror stories about people’s coupon bags getting stolen from their shopping carts? Here’s a super simple trick I use to prevent/deter this.
Most of us go shopping with a purse or bag of coupons, and it’s not hard for us to get distracted away from our cart when we spot an amazing deal. Anyone who goes shopping with young children will also be very familiar with how fast they can steal all our focus and attention. When your back is turned, you can help keep your valuable bags safe by simply clipping them to the cart with the child lap belt! You can also clip a carabiner to your bag so that you can secure it in any cart. If anyone is looking to steal an unattended bag, it’s likely they’ll avoid fighting with a strap clip and instead just find a different and unsecured bag.
While this extra step of security is fantastic, the best way to keep your valuables safe is to keep them with you at all times! Never leave your bag in a cart while you walk away, and keep your bags zipped or snapped shut so nothing is easily grabbed from them or visible to anyone walking past.
