I keep them in the console, out of direct sunlight. I've never had a problem with hot or warped sunglasses. I usually buy the cheap Walgreens or Target models.

Same here. We have never had a problem, no matter what the frame.

I make sure I have pockets. In fact, that's the FIRST thing I look for on new clothes.

I don't have a need for any "real" keys. I have keypads on my house, a garage door opener in my car, and a fob for my car. I drink 100 oz of water a day, so I don't need to carry any with me when I run errands. I don't require reading glasses.

Meh... I refuse to be a pack mule. I use a small purse or none at all.


My husband actually lugs more than I do.

Great - I was simply responding to your statement that you "don't see the need" for a purse. I don't care who uses one or who doesn't. I presume those who carry one do so because they indeed have a need.

Hm.

I guess I generally have a pocket.

Car keys are merely fobs now. I don't buy gigantor phones. I guess I don't go anywhere that I'd need a bunch of emergency stuff I couldn't just get from my car.

Nope.

You can save your customers money by telling them a better place in the car to store them.

Lived in Texas 27 years and never warped anything.

No new handbags in over 10 years, since investing in many good leather ones. But now some of my bags have had mechanical issues and I'm DYING for one of the shoulder strap bags. Remember how uncool they used to look LOL they are back in style. I want one, but have no extra money for one.
