This morning as I was getting ready to leave for the day I realized I couldn’t find my purse. Which meant I didn’t have my wallet, all my credit cards, ID, etc. I was fairly sure I had left my purse at the office the night before, but I didn’t know for sure. Worse yet, I was on my way to business coffee and didn’t have time to run by the office to check.
Thankfully, since hearing this tip from Casey Liss, I had an emergency $20 stashed between my iPhone and my Apple leather case. If I’m ever stuck in a jam, I know I’ve got at least $20 to grab a meal or catch a ride. Thankfully for coffee, $20 was more than enough to get me through my meeting. This episode, however, got me thinking that I’ll probably upgrade next time I stop by the ATM and make it an emergency $50.
Regarding the lost purse, I found it safe and sound at my office. But I had to sit through that entire meeting this morning wondering and worrying. As soon as I got back to the office I ordered a 4-pack of Tile Bluetooth trackers. They’re currently on sale for $25 each or a 4-pack for $69.99. I bought the combo pack that includes two of the keychain size tiles and two of the slim tiles. If I had a Tile in my purse or wallet I could have checked the last known location of my purse and known that it was last at my office and rested a little easier.
