Updated on August 20, 2014

Easy and Chic Handsfree Way to Carry Your Cell Phone

Do you carry your cell phone around in your hand or pocket? I do! Are you constantly losing it or walking off and leaving it places? Yes, I do! Do you get tired of digging through your big purse trying to find your cell phone, or missing a call because you couldn't find your phone in your tote or backpack? Oh yes, that happens to me! I found the answer to these problems!

I gave my phone a purse of it's own! I can wear it cross body, hang it around my neck, clip it to my belt or tie it to my purse. It really has solved my problems with my cellphone and there are so many different kinds of trendy cell phone purses that tying up one hand holding your phone is totally unnecessary. It will help you to stop leaving your device on a store counter or lose it out of your pocket. Below I have gathered a wide selection of cell phone purses, wallets and cases that beautifully do the job and they are so inexpensive, you can afford to buy several different kinds and styles!

A Purse By Any Other Name.....

Throughout history women's purses have gone by a lot of names, such as:

Hamondeys - hung from the girdle in the 14th and 15th century, before pockets were invented

Reticules - in the early 18th century, when women used them to show off their embroidery skills to potential husbands

Handbags - in the late 1800's purses were given this name to distinguish them from luggage bags due to the rise of train travel.

Pochette - popular in the early 1900s, this was a handleless clutch bag

Shoulder Bag - these plain, square utilitarian bags were military in style, due to the influence of WW1.

Since then, the humble purse has been called many other slag terms, like:

Poke

Pocketbook

Hide

Carryall

Pouch

Wallet

Portmanteau

Satchel

Sack

Knapsack

Tote

Purses have been around for centuries, regardless of what they were called and women have come to depend on them to carry the necessities of life. So much so that recently men have started carrying bags of their own, but they don't call them purses, they have more manly names like messenger bag, duffel, and rucksack.
