Have you ever heard of purse currency?


Well neither have I.

However, this is how sick and twisted I have become with my obsessive behaviour towards handbags. Everything I buy which is a necessity, I count in bag money.

For instance, I have a very expensive course I am currently taking. I fret at how much I have to spend. Mind you, this is all for the better, later down my windy road.

Groceries, you know food because we all need it to survive. I glance at my grocery bill with a horrified facial expression. I think to myself, well there would be a nice bag (insert your favourite designer here). It has taken over my world. Items that I know I need, but cause me grief, because they are interfering with my purse funds. I pout, thinking about all the lovely handbags that could take the place, of those pesky things called life’s daily survival supplies. :hysteric:

Well, you know I am, Pink. :lol: But we just got the TV and a bag. :tup:

I do this all the time, seriously. At least I'm not snatching the actual food out of DH and SS's mouths yet. Their time is coming.

Kidding! :okay:

I used to do this all the time...however, I am now finally starting to think in terms of 'Ouch that grocery bill could have paid a credit card' or 'That grocery bill was half a ticket to Orlando', etc.!

Yup. I'll say oh, so its a Louie...or a Balenciaga...or a Chanel...or a Gucci...

My dad likes to make fun of my purse habit. I tell him he will thank me one day when the apocalypse comes and the only currency on the planet is purses.

I do the reverse - if I balk at the price of a nice appliance of piece of furniture, I remind myself that I can easily spend that same amount of $ on a bag without batting an eye, so it's all relative.
