(I've wrote "European" in the title because the economical crisis seems to be affecting Europe more these days, but everyone pls. feel free to contribute!) So, we all know the news about the economical crisis affecting Europe and I don't want to start a dissertation about how it should be solved, what caused it, blah blah blah... I just want to know: how this crisis affects your H spending habits, or your plan on future acquisitions of H items? Myself: I had planned to save for my next H bag (hopefully from the boutique this time), but I'm not sure I can fork out 5000 euro for my next bag, when people are losing their job from a day to another and it isn't that easy to find another soon? I feel that these days nobody can be too sure about their job, I've seen managers that had to quit their job with less than 1 month notice, so I don't feel this couldn't happen to me one day (and I'm definitely not a manager). So far I've quit the idea to get a bag, until things will calm down (I try to stay optimistic and I know this situation won't last forever). But the economical crisis didn't prevent me to buy an Ulysses address book (who doesn't need an H address book marked at 180.00 euro when you can get the cheap ones at 5.00 euro?? ) and to send on of my Kelly to spa, which translates in more money spent. Just a cheer me up, cheap ones I know. And you? How did the crisis changed your H habit?
