What is the price at which you start to hesitate when contemplating a purchase? Obviously, a Coach at the price of a Paddington makes you stop short but that's not the question. Given your level of obsession, where do you mentally stop yourself (if only briefly) when you are falling in love with something?

For me, its about $2,100. Not that I don't own things that are pricier, they just took more mental gymnastics to be able to rationalize.

You?

Give me $1,999 and I'm golden. If I see that 2 pop up, I start to sweat a little but I'll still swipe that card through and then justify it the whole way home...

It was a question about comfort level and I fully respect whatever price point you might name. You have MY respect for being able to control your impulses!

Mine is $1000. actually beginning at $700 I start thinking, is it really worth it, or could I use the money to upgrade the house instead? I have never paid more than $1000 for any bag I own.

Am I the only one on this board that would say $200? I got bills to pay! ;)
I know EXACTLY how you feel!! I only get a really expensive one when I am thinking too much or lusting too much (maybe I'm not thinking at all). And usually it is from money I've been saving and saving for something better (I mean more productive) than another bag! Although, I do love bags!! :love:
