2 Weeks before Christmas my drivers side window was bashed in and my purse was taken. EWW! I canceled my cards and contacted my bank. What a NIGHTMARE! After my bank took the freeze off my account because I had no checks in my purse, the thief took my drivers license to the bank and drained my account to just $6 and change. I was devastated, to say the least. After all the horror of having my cash, cards, bank account and identification stolen, I no longer use a purse. My fanny pack has become my very best friend. I LOVE it! There are so many great reasons for replacing your purse with a fanny pack and there are so many rad styles to choose from.
