Hi, I'm posting two questions here that I'm interested in...I hope these haven't been discussed already and I hope that these aren't taboo topics on TPF. Please don't hate me if they are!

Second one - how do you pay for your bags? I have really expensive taste (mostly Bottegas now) and try to sell my bags as I tire of them to pay for new ones, but it's hard because I never make what I originally paid. After browsing the GORGEOUS BV (and other) collections in this forum I'm wondering how other people do it? How do you pay for your bags - credit cards, forgoe the groceries for a month, second job....how do you do it?

I have a combo of credit cards to pay off (ahem...Neimans...) and ones that are paid for and some that I'm selling...it's tough to keep up with all the beautiful bags out there that I have to have. And I have very little self control!

I do freelance work on my weekends to pay for my bag habit...I can't deal with being in debt (further than my mortgage, which is unavoidable!) so have not (yet) spent money I don't have. But I suspect one day a bag will get the better of my budget...
