  1. Whenever I am purchasing myself yet another bag, I usually like to give myself a nice big juicy excuses like:

    1 mmmm I really need it.

    2 You only live once.

    3`This one matches my boots better.
    4 Its cheaper than the last one I bought.

    5 This could be it for a while.

    It works everytime, How about you, What do you tell yourself when you see a purse or bag you want ?
  2. If it's a LV, I say "buy it now before they raise the price."
  3. Agreed baglady!
  4. No. 1, 2,and 5 and I use my own personal excuse of since my husband doesn't buy me jewelry ever (I'm not a lover of fine jewelry) and we've been married for 20 years, so deserve a handbag once in awhile.
  5. "I'll have it forever."

    "This is just the cost of two speeding tickets."

    "I'll eat Ramen for a month if I can have this bag."
  6. It will hold its value and I can sell it later (why it's a good idea to get classic, designer bags).

    It will last for 20 years if I decide to keep it for that long.
  7. "I need an every day bag"... that is my excuse for every new bag i want to buy. My BF hears this and tells me i am ridiculous b/c i keep on saying this but never use the bags I buy and am always on the lookout for another "every day bag"....truth is: I just want more and more!!
  8. I need a bag in ______ color is usually my reason.

    Or, just because I feel like buying it, damnit! :P
  9. Im planning on telling my mum "its only my 18th birthday once" and also i find "its my money so i'll spend it how i like" also works when ordering expensive goods ;)
  10. It's on sale.
  11. Ditto!
  12. My personal favorite!
  13. Let's see...the following usually floats through my head:

    if not now, when
    Chris (the DH) just bought xxxx auto part
    I had a real productive week
    this is a really good find
    I have to have it
    my CC just flew out of my wallet and attacked the register

    (the list could go on and on...)
  14. I like that one! Too funny!

    I have some of the same thoughts as most people...

    ---You only live once
    ---It's a classic
    ---I really need it (although I know I don't)
    ---It's my money
    ---Better get it before it's too late or it increases in price
    ---Well, my boyfriend isn't going to get it for me, so I might as well
  15. I NEED that bag!
    It's on sale!
    It will be sold out if I don't get it right now!
    I deserve it!
    I really really want it!
    It's the perfect, size, color shape, etc.
    I don't have that size, color, shape, designer yet!
    It will make me happy!
    I will feel good and look good carrying it!
    Purses last so long, they are worth the money!
    I'll just give up _________ so I can afford it.
    Hubby will have no idea how much I paid.
    No one else will get it for me.
    It's for a special occasion. (B-day, V-day, anniversary, Christmas)
    I'm not buying any cloths till I loose weight, soooo.
    The purse blog made me do it!
    I had PMS that week.
    I'm trying to build a collection or purse wardrobe.
    This will be the lat one for a while I promise.
    It's good for the econmy.
    Okay, I could keep going on, but I think you get the idea!
