Coin Purse c/o Fashion Perks (direct link)

I've always been that girl who carries around the biggest purse I can get my hands on, with every card space filled, and some even doubled up on, with every receipt from the past 6 weeks stuffed down one side and my coins and notes all kind of mixed up and squashed together down the other side. That was, until recently when I was sent this cute little 'racoon' coin purse, and now I feel like my life has been transformed... well, maybe not my life, but definitely my purse!

I've been using this to store all of my coins except for £1 and £2 coins, and it's been such a great way to save money. I've been pleasantly surprised with how quickly the little coins have added up. It's also been really handy for paying for little things like car park tickets, drinks from vending machines or just to take when Elodie wants a treat from the shop.

I don't really know why I've never used a coin purse before, but this has taken up a permanent place in my handbag now. It's super cute too, which is definitely a bonus, I love the little flappy ears and sad eyes!

Do you use a coin purse?
