When you look at it this way... kind of depressing!

I was in accounting class and my teacher was talking about hypothetically buying a car and estimated a Honda Civic costing $25,000...

As always my mind was thinking about Chanel, and right away I realized that that's the price of about 9-10 Jumbos!

It made the handbags seem really expensive! Like 10 purses, or one car...

I know this probably isn't an issue for most of you, but it was a big eye opener for me!! (yet I still am planning on getting a med flap hopefully soon!!)

OMG, it's okay... I completely had this thought the other day! It's kind of sad because the cost of a jumbo these days is more than some people's monthly mortgage payment.


OR given that some people will put 10k as a down payment on the average car, that's only like 3 Chanels. -Okay, I am not thinking about this anymore, it's making me second guess my purchases. LOL

Actually, the cost of one civic isn't even enough for a 35cm croc birkin! If the thought of this wasn't bad enough :P

Yes I do think this way and vice versa. I tried to think to much of the realization of it all...depressing indeed.

Liberte: wait where are you located? I just found out my car cost 3x the price in Singapore! I was SHOCKED -and ACTUALLY thought how many more Chanels you could buy with that, so it's funny you mentioned it. LOL

loveaddict: it's all relative! LOL, I don't mind if you mention H -but that might just be me! ;)
