Just hanging around – or not

Wanted to give a shout-out today to a handy little device that I just could not live without. The purse hanger!

There is NOTHING more irritating to a lady than settling into a seat at a restaurant and having no place to put her purse. If it’s a shoulder bag, you can sometimes hook it around the back of the chair, but a rounded chairback or sitting in a booth can put the kibosh on that idea. No matter how nice the restaurant, the condition of the floor makes putting your handbag on the floor a germaphobe’s nightmare. Balancing it on your shoes is impractical and your lap is not a viable option either. Using an available empty chair at the table or space on the booth seat works if there’s room.

And right here, let me applaud the bars that have thoughtfully installed hooks under the counter, but they are sadly few and far in between.

So, it was with pure delight that I discovered the purse hanger. I don’t know when they were developed, but I discovered them quite by accident. A discount bin at the local Books A Million to be specific. I immediately bought them for myself and as gifts. One of those lovely little gadgets that make life so much easier.

Here’s a fervent thank you to the designer of the purse hanger!

Do you have one of these lovelies? How did you find out about them? Feel free to share pics.
