Anyone ever downsize their bag collection to one to three bags. Not for financial reasons. Just for the sake of simplifying.

Many times, but that was back before I started buying designer bags. Now my collection just seems to keep growing.....

I did that. I decided that I don't like having so many expensive bags just sitting in my closet.. It feels so much freer now..

Yes, I've done exactly that. It feels great! I only keep bags I actually wear on a regular basis.

I am open to all brands, whether high end or not so I have a huge collection.
I would like to downsize too. I gave a few of them to friends but I can't sell.
Too complicated. So I am trying to use them all....
To tell you the truth, I think we don't need to own more than 3 or 4. But I have loved bags since I was a kid and can't stop collecting...

This is exactly what I have been doing and I feel so much better for it! My ideal collection would be two bags for 'better' or special occasions (already have my Chanel flap but want to add a YSL clutch in a nude/blush colour), two bags for everyday and a bag specifically for work/interviews. So no more than a total of five.

I would love to add a Chanel GST in black to my collection at some point but would have to sell a bag to do it. At one stage I had 30 bags (not all premier designer) and managed to get them down to 12, then eight, then five. I feel I can justify their cost more when I use them regularly and I just don't make enough use of each when I have too many.
