Welcome!! I inherited a good bit of my LV collection from my grandmother, some have been gifts. I buy the rest, always pay cash!

I pretty much buy whatever catches my eye. I don't have a "bag fund" per se.

before i joined the word of autosurfing and profiting from that, i use to put aside a certain amount of money per paycheck. Usually 50-75 dollars. I would have a specific bag in mind, and after a few months i would purchase it. Although I never purchased a bag which cost more than 800. I think that's my limit... it still is. But since I've come here I've found a variety of bags that I've never even heard of so I am sure my 800 max will slowly, but surely, be upgraded. LOL

I'm lucky that my dad appreciates my handbag addictions so he pays for most of my bags (for now), but pretty soon I need to start learning how to live on my own.

I'm just getting back to my post and I'm feeling so much better now about my own addiction... so it's OK that I have a hidden stash??!! HA! My husband was really understanding when the purses I liked were around $300... now however, he can't relate!!

I'm jealous of all of the girls whose husbands, dads and boyfriends "get it"!!!!! Lucky chicks!:suspiciou

Some of them are, yes, but I have had no problems and I have been doing this since 2005.
But alas, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and since this is your board I will definately respect your request.

My boyfriend of 6 years buys them for me. I have bought some...but for the most part its him since he's the money-maker in the relationship. He understands my bag obsession, since he buys cars like i buy bags! LOL ..so my addiction is considerably cheaper. :biggrin:

I first started with a pewter multi-pocket MJ with the idea that I could get one expensive bag a year--I decided that the "average" Coach wasn't included. Then I worked up to two/year. Then I was REALLY bad this past year. I bought a MJ Blake while in Vegas, a Guccissima for my birthday, and another Gucci for Christmas... THEN my mom got me a Dior Gambler for Christmas too. At this rate I'm at 4/year!!!

I just go with my dad's lesson--don't buy what you can't afford on a credit card. So I just pay off the bill each month. If I can't pay the bill, I can't get the purse.

I am a full time student and a new mommy for a 4 month baby boy...My obsession with bags is a new thing, but my husband doesnt support it at all, so I usually put aside around $100/month for my bags (like now I am saving for a chanel).
so I am waiting to graduate to afford my expensive hobby:nuts:
