A Purse on the Floor is Money Out the Door

Just had to share… I recently found this fabulous article on why we should all be using purse hooks to keep our precious purses off the floor … I couldn’t agree more!!! 😀

Gold-Purse-HookIt’s bad Feng Shui to put your purse on the floor… an old Chinese proverb that states “a purse on the floor is money out the door.” Your money, checkbook and credit cards are usually in your purse and putting them on the floor shows disrespect for the order of things and disregard for your wealth and money. You wouldn’t think of putting your bag of gold on the floor, would you?

I think the problem is that purses have gotten so big-we even call them “bags” now, as in, may I get your bags, said by the bell boy. They are practically as big as an overnight suitcase. When purses were small, we could sit them on the table at restaurants and they looked really cute. Or, we could place them on our laps while we ate. But now that purses are so large, it’s a bit of a problem and a practical issue. They’re so heavy we don’t want to hang them from our shoulders all the time, but we also don’t want to rudely put our giant personal belongings on someone’s desk or on the counter when checking out at a retail store, so we usually end up setting the purse on the floor at our feet.

So, purse etiquette; what to do? You can always hang your purse on the back of your chair in a restaurant, but only if your back is to the wall; otherwise, it might get stolen. Or, you can use a near-by chair if one is available, but you still have to keep your eye on it. A better solution is to use a purse hook that slips on the edge of the table and has a hook on the other end for your purse to hang by its strap.

Besides, the floor is really filthy, especially in restaurants, restrooms, movie theaters, and other public places. When you put your purse on the floor and then on your desk, bed, kitchen counter or table, you are transferring all that filth-yucky and very hazardous to your health!

And, by the way, if your purse or wallet is worn out or stuffed with last month’s litter, you are sloppy with your money. Sorry to point that out, but you are probably unconsciously wasting money, don’t know how much money you have, or you’re behind in your bills. It pays to be highly conscious of all aspects of your money including your purse or wallet. Try cleaning out your purse or wallet and updating old information, pictures, credit cards, etc. Hide a $50 or $100 dollar bill somewhere in your purse so you will never be broke.

Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!!! ~ Year of the Sheep!!!
The sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe delicate and precious white jade to be ‘suet jade’. Thus it is close to the meaning of good things.
People under the sign of the sheep are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.
Sheep year people are often worriers who are shy, pessimistic, moody, indecisive, over-sensitive, weak-willed and puzzled about life. They are easily inclined to be deeply religious. They are timid in nature and like to be looked after by others. They like flattery, compliment and suggestions from friends. They do not dare to express their love openly and usually have interests in strange theories.
