In reality, bags are used to put our stuffs. We need specific bag for a specific occasion. It is so strange to bring a sports bag when you are wearing an elegant dress. Or go for hiking with your handbag. But women become so enthusiast of bags that lead to spending lavish amount of money for designer bags.
1. My friend have it, why can’t I?
2. I need new bags to match my new clothes.
3. I have a spare amount of money; I’d rather buy a bag.
4. I don’t think I have that kind of bag yet. It’s a new style.
5. I want to impress my friends, boy friend or suitor.
6. This is on sale. I must buy it now.
7. Just love it.
At the end of the day, you’ll find your closet with loads of bags that are not even used. We don’t need new bags every time we are going to a party or other occasions or to amaze people. If you belong in high society or you are earning much as you wanted, go on. But given the economy crisis right now, might as well spend the money for what’s necessary.
I am a hypocrite if I say, I don’t like bags or I don’t get tempted buying new bags. I do. But I am controlling myself seriously. I have plenty of bags right now but I did not buy all of them. So the urge of acquiring a new one can be put aside. Most of my precious bags are gifts and some are rewards. Like my gray Longchamp Paris bag which I claimed it through miles earned for flying with KLM.
This particular tote bag is made of synthetic trimmed cowhide leather. It’s dimensions are 31x30x19 cm, big enough to carry all my belongings when on a short trip. What I like about this bag is that it’s simple yet fashionable. Plus, it is so easy to maintain, just use water, mild soap and soft brush or cloth.
In a retail shop, this bag will cost $168.00 and I’m glad to have it for free. Yes, after careful consideration, there is really no need to buy a bag every pay day. It is just a part of a routine retail therapy of a woman which I believe can be avoided if desired. For now, I will just wait for more rewards to come in. Who knows, I can have my own LV bag through those advantage points.
