6 Best Purses For Senior Women

Over the years, my mother has collected many handbags. From designer clutches to oversized bags that carried everything.

When it comes to purses for aging ladies, you need to start considering a few factors. First is content safety. Ensuring your mother does not leave her beautiful purse wide open for thieves to grab her wallet is a priority. 

Next is ease of use. If a purse has too many gadgets and flimsy zippers, arthritic hands will not work well.

We looked for purses that work for ease of use, safety, anti-theft, and of course fashion. Here are our top picks.
