Emotional attachement to your bags?

Does anyone else feel attached to their bags? I have a modest collection, mostly LV. There are a couple of bags I never carry anymore. Sometimes I feel it would make more sense for me to sell, but I just can't bring myself to do it .:shame: For those of you who are able to re-sell, how do you have the strength to do so?

To afford a more expensive bag, I sell a couple that I haven't used in awhile or that will be replaced by the new one. There are some that I am attached to and won't ever get rid of--when I die, my daughters-in-law and nieces will have to divvy them up.

I will only resell the ones that my bf hasn't gotten me as gifts. They are important to me, I keep everything! Plus it takes me awhile to fall in love with a bag, and once i have it, its usually a keeper! I try not to impulse buy my bags.

I have an attachment to ALL my bags. I might not use some of them anymore because I'm more into LV and Chanel now but I can't get rid of anything. For example, though I don't use my Kate Spade and Coach bags anymore, they were my "starter" bags so they mean a lot to me. And also, my 3 D&B IT bags that get picked on by MANY people for being too trendy or little kid looking, etc. mean a lot to me. My dad got them for me when they first came out and he was SO proud that he got them for me, since he really doesn't buy my bags at all. I used them a ton when I first got them..I don't now, but I'd never get rid of them because they have sentimental value.

I also have a D&B that was given to me from my godfather. I can't seem to get rid of it, despite the fact that D&B gets bashed or looked down on by other people. I also had a small D&B barrel but I got rid of that only because it reminded me of my ex (haha, sorry).

I have, however, gotten rid of LVs I've bought. Some of them I bought out of impulse because they were cheap, and I was a beginner at LV. Little did I realize that repairs were too expensive, so I had to sell them. I've still kept my favorites...Even though I want to branch out to other brands, I don't think I'll be able to part with those LVs for a really long time...
