I'm always interested in why people love their bags, what they carry in them and how they use them. I have noticed we have a variety of philosophies here and wanted your thoughts on the following: Do you tend to purchase on impulse or think things through for a long time first? Do you buy bags for specific use, or do you buy multiple bags as 'every day' bags? Do you buy sets to use them together or mix and match? Do you buy bags for the season or stick to year-round? Do you love a big collection or do you prefer a few key things that you use on a regular basis? For me, I was once a collector and rotated on a regular basis. Now that I have several small children and our house is filled with lots more stuff, I'm paring down and enjoying seeing more blank space in my closet. I've sold some of my pre-loved bags on eBay and now prefer to purchase a few key things that I really love and are more multi-purpose. I would love to have the free-spriited approach to purchase an Ali in white, but I bought in Whiskey for above-said reasons. I also tend to buy more bags as 'everyday' bags (shoulder totes, etc) and just a couple of wristlets. I see so many beautiful things but remind myself of my own particular habits. If this is a duplicate thread, please accept my apology. I did search and didn't see one. Would love to hear your bag philosophy.
