Now on the other hand, the logical rational part of me thinks that it's absolutely absurd to drop $XXXX on a bag. My bf is trying to convince me to set that money aside for something like a trip or even a car (since my car has been around for over 15 years). However... when would I get the chance to buy something this luxurious once I move out, have kiddies, blahblahblah.
I can do both... go on a trip AND buy a bag! My bf and I have plans to go to Las Vegas (my first time) and also our usual trip to Hawaii every two years (so next year). That'll give me longer to save up and in my head, saving small amounts at a time totally justifies me buying a bag.
