Not the coin purse in the flap, but the other one... It's too narrow and/or too short for me to put a tube of lip balm or lip gloss in it. I didn't know what else to put in there so I put a rolled up $20 bill in there for "emergencies." I put my lip balm, but no money, in the flap coin purse because it tends to unsnap sometimes and I don't want to deal with spilling coins everywhere. After typing this out, I'm realizing how bass ackwards I am (keeping money in the tubular compartment/keeping lip balm in the money compartment). I'm curious to know if people keep something in the secret compartment or just leave it empty.
