Bought 2 Bals in the last month so trying to be good. Next one will be PS1 in lipstick red
I tend to use cash for my handbag purchases so my credit cards can be saved for emergencies. I think I've gone a bit overboard the past two months. I have two impulse items still with tags that I'm evaluating returning.
The next item up on my wishlist is this Reed Krakoff Gym Bag I in Cordovan.
Would love a Ferragamo Briana in purple, but that's never gonna happen.
i am on my way to get hermes herbag pm im black, but i couldn't find the new one everywhere, hermes just released the new herbag in bright colors, so i might get the used one on eBay
Céline luggage tote in black.
Celine luggage for long term but for now either mulberry bays or alexa, still cannot decide. Any suggestions? I'm a graduate student, will finish my study soon and will be looking for a job soon so I'm looking for sth I can take to work as well as for weekend.
I love this question. I have been saving for a Birkin bag for the past three years and have 5,000.00 so as you can see I have a fair way to go. That is, if I could even manage to get on a waiting list to buy one. Has anyone every found a way to circumvent all the drama of buying this bag?
Waiting list? More than $5000? OMG, what if you get it and don't like it???????
How are you all saving? I've tried the while saving thing but once I get enough saved up I find something better within the amount I've saved and start all over again. Share your method!! How much would you say I should start putting aside for starters?!
I hav the same problem! Would really love to know others' saving method ! I think it pretty much requires determination and effort.
Hello hello... need to find people in the same 'boat' as me...
I am saving for a big purchase and I have to give up quite a few other bags. I have not buy any bags for 2 months and now finally I can buy my 1st H bag (though still need to look for a pre-owned and still on a budget). Always on the lookout for H bags and somehow along the way, found many other dream bags! The RMs, Alexander Wang, Bal, vintage Gucci etc.. Sooo sad ... when I finally set my heart on a H bag, I saw something coming in. Have tried very hard to resist any other temptations. I am still holding on to my target. Hopefully I wont be weak and buy that Alexander Wang in my watchlist! Anyone in the same boat? Share some tips?!
The "Search" feature here is a BIG BONUS - here are three other threads I found using the term 'saving' and searching by post:
And sometimes the search feature brings up irrelevant results! That's a thread about saving (as in rescuing) a damaged bag, not saving money to buy a bag.
OP - if you are saving money but tempted to spend the accumulating pile of cash, try making it inaccessible. For example, you could buy 6-month CDs so that the money is less liquid. Or put it in a savings account at an online bank where it will be more hidden from you.
Thank you for catching that!!!!! - I have edited my post so it's no longer there!!!
Saving MY pennies for an MCM Stark backpack. I'm about halfway there!
