Questions from AZ: What’s Inside your Purse?

Is your purse a trash container?
What’s in your purse does say a lot about who you are and how you handle your life and finances. If you are not conscious of it, your purse can become a trash container. When our purses are a mess and we can’t find anything, we feel lost and not surprisingly our bank
accounts can often reflect that frantic and scattered feeling.

Try to resist the temptation to throw things like gum or food wrappers, scraps of paper or used tissues into your purse. What does it say about your view of money when you carry trash in the same place as your money? Trash should always go in a trashcan and never into your purse. Give your hard earned money the respect it deserves.

Get a wallet that helps you stay organized. Arranged your money neatly not rolled up into a wad. You should be able to easily access your credit cards. Have only as many credit cards as you absolutely need. Too many cards can become a financial problem not to
mention a credit score nightmare. If you can, avoid individual store credit cards just for the simple reason it will make it easier to keep clutter to a minimum.

So, what’s in your purse?
