I went to Walmart today to pick up a few things when I got my buggy I always put my purse in the childs seat and buckle it  in through the handle on my purse so If someone tries to take my purse I'm gonna know it.   I understand some of you don't because your child is sitting there,  But people were looking at me like that was the strangest thing in the world.  I've been doing this ever since my son got to old to ride in the buggy and I have never been stared at so much as I was today!!  So I was wondering if anyone else buckles their purse up when they go in a store?

I dont buckle it in but I do sit it in the front (if my baby's not there) and keep the strap wrapped around my hand.

I live in a town where I could leave my purse with $200 cash on top of the bananas and it would get returned without a penny stolen, lol....

But when I am in the city, I wear a purse that gover over my shoulder so no one an take it... you idea is a great one, though!!!

That's funny! I would probably look at you weird too, lol. I usually keep mine in the seat, but my daughter is up there too. This may make me sound like a horrible mother, but honestly I hardly ever buckle her in either! She has a cow when I do, but when I don't she sits still, and I neve leave her side.

I put mine in the bottom of  the cart so it's closest to me.  Then I put the food around it so it's harder for someone to get to.  I'm conscientious too about someone taking it.

I keep mine on my shoulder. I usually see people buckle theirs though. I wouldn't have looked weird. Ha...I usually get a funny look because I use the cart cover for my son. I used to work retail...I know how nasty people are in public, I am not about to let my son touch those nasty handles! lol.
