Yes. I refuse to carry a purse. Just a wallet with a key ring.

I don't see most young women carrying hand bags anymore, and purses seem to be a thing of the past.

My wife carries a purple one from LV. She carries it in her purse or by itself depending on the outfit or occasion.

I carry a wallet with me in my art bag (basically a large cloth purse I can fit my sketchbook, pencils, and pens in). I typically bring my art bag with me everywhere, but if I leave it behind I put my wallet in my pocket, and my smartphone on a belt clip or in another pocket.

Anyway, she may have a use for the wallet you made.

What? Purses aren't a thing of the past. While there are some women who don't use them, a majority of women still do. And young women defiantly do. Just Google the name of any young woman in Hollywood and they'll be carrying a purse when out in public.

I would never buy a wallet for someone. to many variables for happiness.
Ditto. I use one, but am very picky. In fact, I just found out that I can still buy online the one I'm using now, which I haven't seen in a store for several years, and am planning to buy another one or two, even though I don't quite need a new one yet.

I don't know what planet that is on. I see most women over 18 with a purse. Maybe not the 12 year olds.....but after that. Maybe 3% of the women I know don't use a purse.

Personally, I have a "big wallet" with all my cards/stuff, it is continental style, and it goes in my day time purse or a bigger purse. But If I am carrying a small purse, after years of hunting down small wallets and rejecting them, I ended up with a Coach ID wristlet that is perfect. It has an ID slot, a zip pocket and 2 card slots so I can keep my ID, debit card, transit card and some cash and a little bit of change. It is pocketable, and fits in basically any evening purse too.

Here is a current one, mine is a cool snake print in a neutral with minimal branding.

A few years ago my one of my friends was putting her groceries in her car and had her purse over her shoulder* - two guys came by in a car and grabbed her purse and drove off. Problem? She was still attached. She wound up with contusions and breaks on her ankles, torso and shoulder.

Because of that, I switched away from purses to a wallet that clips inside my waistband. If I want to carry other girlie stuff like lipstick and all that, I'll carry a purse. But if someone wants it, they are welcome to my makeup kit and brush!


This is the wallet from DesignGo

I have given this for Christmas gifts every year since I discovered it. It is the ONE gift that everyone has always appreciated. This fits the recommendation of police friends who say you should "divide the losses" -- that is, you should not have everything including the kitchen sink in your purse. Not only does carrying a huge purse make you a target, it is bad for your shoulders and it makes you prone to paranoia about your "stuff"... Put ID, cash, credit cards in this wallet, and all your other stuff in your bag.

* Since it's the holidays and we are talking about purses and wallets, may I recommend that when you ladies are putting things in the trunk of your car you follow this protocol: 1) double click to open car, 2) open trunk, 3) click immediately to lock all the other doors (however this works on your vehicle.) 4) Throw your purse either over the back seat or into the trunk, making sure you have not put your keys in your purse!!! I clip my keys onto my belt loop. 5) THEN start putting all those purchases in your trunk. Be safe and develop good habits that will protect you from the wackos out there.

GREAT ADVICE! ^^^

I always throw my purse in the car.....on the floor of the front seat, passenger side.....and lock the car before I load the trunk. Not only safer but it is easier too!

I also have one of these on my keychain. Started using these over 30 years ago because I worked afternoon turn and liked to stop at the store after work.

I like this model because it can't accidently go off in your pocket or purse and you don't have to fumble with a case. I always buy black ones.....not something I want to call attention to.

As far as wallets go.....I am extremely picky.....I doubt anyone could buy one for me that I would be happy with.
