Ok, I consider myself a fairly intelligent individual with good reasoning. However, I am strongly considering dishing out $1600 for a handbag. Over the past year, what I considered to be a reasonable amount to spend has gradually increased. However, the most I have ever paid in the past for a bag is a few hundred dollars (probably $350 max). The bag I want is the Jimmy Choo Maddy bag. It's a very hard find, which makes me want it that much more. When I told my boyfriend, he flipped. He thinks I've gone completely insane for "wasting my money on a freakin' bag". Not to mention, I'm a grad student with a limited income. So, even though I know it's not exactly practical, how can I reason spending this much? How do you all reason your spending?
