Getting ready for some new summer looks? Start early and look no further than your wallet or handbag.
We’re all moving so fast that it’s easy to let receipts and other IDs and documentation accumulate. Don’t be a George Costanza with an exploding wallet. Limit what you store in a wallet and handbag. Try to carry only what you need on a daily basis. Keep a record of what you carry in a secure place at home, so that you’ll know what to replace if it is lost or stolen. Be sure to leave your Social Security card in safe location at home. And remember, when you’re out and about—or even at work—make sure you don’t leave your belongings unattended. Stow handbags, backpacks and briefcases in a safe spot to avoid tempting ne’er-do-wells.
