What is the safest way to carry money?

Alternatives to a Purse


If you feel vulnerable to purse snatchers, here are two alternatives:

  • Fanny or Waist Pack. A small Fanny Pack or Waist (frontal) Pack that clips around your middle will work nicely. These small packs can be hidden or covered by a shirt or coat and usually have 1 or 2 zipper compartments to carry belongings.

    They’re useful to wear when you’re in an unfamiliar place or you don’t want to be bothered with carrying a purse around.

  • Zippered Pockets. You might consider purchasing lightweight jackets or coats with pockets that have zippers. You can place your money, house keys and other items inside these zipped pockets and they will be safe from theft or from falling out and getting lost.
