I am your typical paranoid NYer (or ex-NYer anyway). I don't like carrying a wallet so I have two little purses. One holds cards and large bills and the other small bills and change. The latter is kept handy but the card purse is tucked in a safe place. I always figured it would give me something to keep any muggers fairly happy while keeping a hold of the important stuff.
Besides my LV wallet with a compartment for coins, I also carry my matching coin purse. Here in San Francisco, I drive alot...so that means I have to carry alot of quarters :evil: ..so expensive! Anyway, I couldn't resist the cute coin purse...:shame: .
Thanks for your inputs. I have my eyes on a very cute coin purse but I am concerned re the practicality of it.I can forsee myself getting changes (both bills and coins) while grocery shopping and having a difficult time trying to separate them into my wallet and coin purse with a lot of people standing in line behind me. But I do have a wallet with coin compartment so I guess I can just stuff everything in my wallet and separate them at home. haha.. the things I'll do for a cute coin purse..
I only carry a cheapo fabric coin purse when I know I'm going to be using the coins up (flea market for drinks, garage sales). Otherwise they go into the zip compartment of my LV wallet. It holds quite a bit, and I tend to take them out at the end of each day anyway.
My wallets always have a coin compartment. I did buy a Brahmen but only cuz it was so cute and I like to buy some type of accessory for my purses like a key chain or sunglass holder. i don't really use the coin purse, I pay with check or charge card. Cureently is it sitting in my auto to hold my spare change when I need it.
