I admit, now, this was a long time ago ladies !!! But I was once a " little" late with my rent because I wanted this Chanel tote bag with a matching purse so badly.

Ive since then, learned my lesson.

How about you ? Have you ever gone to any length or drastic measures to get that bag. (or anything else )

No, I personally haven't had to missed rent, or sell a kidney, or anything like that for a bag....although with so many great things out there, I can see someone going to drastic measures to get something.

I stalked a bag once. :shame: In Nordstrom I looked at an Isabella Fiore and set it back down. Took two steps and someone else picked it up! I started to freak out and wanted it more than anything. But I had to wait because the woman asked the s/a to hold it for her!!!! And the hold was for 24 hours!

I sped up there the next day (not wanting to wait for the s/a to call me) and the woman still hadn't replyed if she wanted it or not. :amazed: So if she hadn't called by noon, it would be mine and I spent 2 agonizing hours in the mall waiting to run back and grab the bag.

I did get it though so it turned out okay.

Whenever you're contemplating buying something - if you pick it up and put it down to think about it - if someone else picks it up - and heaven forbid looks like she's going to actually buy it - YOU GO BERSERK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (at least I do).

:lol: I do, too. I get close to becoming like the people you see on the news at Wal-Mart the day after Thanksgiving :lol:

I haven't done anything crazy, besides getting into bidding wars with people on eBay.

Hmmm. I'll let you know! Just bought a bag on sale today and now need a wallet to go with it and found out another bag on my list is on sale, but I am flat broke! Hubby will not even buy me anything right now either! Trying to think if I have anything worth selling I could part with!

I don't think that I've gone through "desperate" measures to purchase that must have bag, but I have been known to go through the house and find items that I can sell!!!

I wanted money for a LV so I waited outside a Best Buy for 13 hours in the cold to buy an xbox 360 to resell on eBay. I sold it the next day and made like $300 profit so it was worth it.

My bf was gonna wait outside to get one and I wasn't doing anything that night, so I figured I might as well wait outside with him and make some money! I was the only girl though- with like 50 nerdy teenage boys!

Everytime I drive by that Best Buy I look at the sidewalk and think- EWW I can't believe I slept there!! :amazed: :nuts:
