I said NO and it hurts so bad

March 25th, 2015 at 01:10 pm

(This is a post that only purse lovers would understand)

So, Kate Spade sends me an email this morning about a purse that is $100 off today only. I looked, coveted, and drooled all day long.... but I have finally decided to just say NO because it's the right thing to do. I certainly love this bag but I certainly don't need it nor do I have an extra $200 to spend on it either. But, gosh darnit, I can't stop thinking about it.

As luck would have it though, I just sold one of my brand new Dooney and Bourke handbags that I bought for a steal (around $90) and got $160 for it which means a profit of $70. I've tried and tried to sell it over the course of the past year or so with no luck until today... the day that Kate Spade tempts me so. But, I'm holding strong and will save that $160 inflow of cash instead of spending it and then some on a new Kate bag.

The right decision is sometimes (always) the hardest decision.

    I'm not a purse-lover, but I do understand that powerful pull of temptation!

    Great job with your resistance! Where are you putting the other purse proceeds?

    CCF, it's going into the short term account... that balance keeps growing and growing and I love it! So, that'll be my satisfaction instead of getting a new bag Smile

    We all have our shopping demons. Mine are bedsheets, dishes and gemstone jewelry.
