A HOLIDAY shopper has revealed her hack for keeping her wallet and purse safe in the cart.

The trick works in carts that have a safety belt for children.

The woman, named Shannon Culp, showed people that they can secure their wallets or purses by putting a child's seat belt already attached to the cart through the handle of their belongings.

She clicked the seat belt and exclaimed, "They can't go anywhere."

The trick is meant to deter theft since people can't simply swipe the purse or wallet from the cart easily.

And if you want to protect your wallet in another way, the experts at Sortlist previously revealed how stores try to get you to spend more money.

First, stores try to make the buyer feel like purchasing the product right then and there is the best option by creating a sense of urgency.

For instance, "while supplies last" signs create a fear that the item won't be there much longer.

The placement of food is also a major strategy.

Stores will place basic foods like milk, bread, and eggs in the back of the store so the consumer must walk through the entire building to reach them.

The hope is to encourage shoppers to purchase other items they pass while walking to get what they actually came for.

Brick and mortar stores will also purposely create a confusing layout so customers are more likely to see – and then buy – products they did not originally intend to purchase.

Another shopping expert, Jordon Cox, previously told  NHS Discount Offers his tricks to lowering his grocery store bills.

He warned against value packs, which are normally thought to get consumers a better deal.

"You do have to be beady-eyed in the supermarket, as prices change all the time," he said.

"It’s not unusual that buying two smaller packs is cheaper and more cost-effective than buying the larger ‘value packs.’"

He advised looking at the prices and how much product you actually get in each unit to determine the best buy.
