At first glance, I thought you had trimmed down to 8 bags! Then I realized there are multiple colors! I think you are still doing better than me.

lol ! I wish I had 8. I have 22 :sad:.. I'd be happy with 12 or even 15. I am at a point where I am finding it difficult to part anymore. I'd love your suggestions and inputs to trim it down

Do you use each bag in each color enough to justify keeping it? That is a question only you can answer. If you have a bag that you absolutely love the color, but only use it very sporatically because it doesn't go with most of your clothing, put it away and a couple of months from now, if you haven't gone and gotten it out to use, or even missed it, you can probably do without it.

I, along with many on here, had lots of bags just because they were cute or colorful, but not necessarily practical and they were more eye candy than actually useful items. Having a lot of bags started making me 'uncomfortable' for lack of a better word. Instead of being lots of 'pretties' to look at, it started making me 'anxious' because of all the clutter caused by the bags that I wasn't using. That's when I found out that 30 was not a good amount of bags for me, but 10 -15 was an amount that was comfortable for me. A few on here have even gone down to 3-5 bags.

I am now down to 14 bags and am considering getting rid of one of those because it's not getting used much anymore.

I now have:

Coach:

East / west duffles - Cognac, deep port and black.
Dakotah - Suede saddle, small original black, pebbled saddle
Carrie - The FP original - textured raspberry
Kelsey - Brown zebra stripe (the only fabric bag I own)
Sophia - FP version in woven black leather

Others:

Frye - Melissa satchel - dark brown and cognac
Minkoff - Morning After in brown whipstitch
Minkoff - Fiona brown suede fringe
Kors - Megan in electric blue

Hi Suzanne,
That's is exactly how i ended up with so many - eye candies. Great question on whether i use them. No, most of my bags are still in their original package.. don't know why. I keep saving them for occasions that does seem to come by. I have been using just a few of my swaggers in rotation and they are my go to because of easy of access and the size and design. I simply can't seem to let the other bags go :sad:. . I am glad i shared and happy to get your inputs. If I could just get rid of one color in each style, i'd be a much better place.

If you never use them, I think eventually you will be able to let them go. I was the same way at one time too.

It seems like the swagger is a perfect style for you since it's your go to bag, those are definitely worth keeping. The east / west duffles, the dakotahs and the Frye Melissa bags are my go to bags. The duffles and Dakotahs are the perfect size and shape for me and I love the Frye bags because they are made of such rugged leather that I don't have to worry about scratching them because they are supposed to look beat up. :P

If most of the bags are still in their original package, I'd try selling them. I have more than you do right now, actually; but since I rotate my outfits constantly, they all get used-so it's hard for me to delete some. Good luck!!

I have managed to trim down from 44 bags to 27 in past 6 months. My goal is under 20 but ugh there's sooo many pretties I want!
Taking them from 44 to 27, nice job! :tup:

In your case, it doesn't seem like you need to get rid of any....your collection is getting used and not just sitting there like a trophy. :P

You have a well rounded variety of bags. :smile:

I can understand that! 'Collecting' can so easily turn into 'hoarding'. :shame:

I have quit buying, but I haven't parted with any either. I don't plan to. I love them all, even if some are more collector's items than bags to carry. There are four I've not yet carried.
I'm hesitant to list them all-it's an extensive list. I'd get a wicked typer's cramp. Haha.
I own bags from Coach,MMK, Kate Spade, MBMJ, Chloé, and Gucci.
I will admit...I'm a bag hoarder.
