Coin purses are an unsung convenience that many need but few have. Coins quickly bulk up wallets and clutches, and in extreme cases make those wallets and clutches difficult or impossible to close all the way. Having change is too handy, however, to get rid of it from our bags completely: we need it for parking meters, coffee emergencies, and leaving accurate tips. We love having organized handbags and wallets, so it's no wonder we're such big coin purse fans.
The Origins of the Coin Purse
Purses for carrying coins and other personal items have been around since the BCEs. Many ancient civilizations clipped small leather pouches to their belts in order to carry their money around. In fact, it's where the term "cutpurse" comes for a thief or pickpocket: these criminals used to cut the purse strings to detach the purse from the owner's belt.
Fit Extra in Your Coin Purse
Thankfully, today we don't hang our coin purses from our belts but snap or zip them up and conceal them within our handbags, making them much more difficult to steal. Though these handy little bags go by the name "coin purse," many of them are large enough to fit folded bills, a few credit cards, and an ID. If you attach wrist straps to the zippers of large coin purses, you end up with wristlets that are convenient for carrying during a night on the town.
Try a New Style
Because coin purses are often concealed within your handbag, you don't have to worry about matching your typical style. In fact, a coin purse is a great way to try out a new color or design you've been eyeing but haven't been brave enough to buy. Branch out from your typical favorite handbag designer and try someone new when you purchase your thredUP coin purse.
