Frugal Confession- I am a Bag Lady

I love bags. Some people collect shoes, but I collect bags. I have loved and bought purses, computer bags, totes, diaper bags, beach bags- every kind of bag one could imagine. I gave away a ton of bags in April at our garage sale and then donated the rest to Goodwill. I thought with my new more frugal attitude that I would realize the silliness of the bag obsession and be done with it.

I cleaned out a closet the other day, and to my dismay I found that I had been collecting bags again. Straw totes- oh- it's pink- only $2.50? Wow I have to get it! I have a brown leather purse, but I need a black tote sized one- in leather- only $18! and I have a gift card to help out!

It's a disease. I love bags. I would like to think I have gotten better, but the only thing I do differently now is that my bags have to be on clearance or a great deal.

I have got to change this habit. This bag addiction has done no good. Wait- maybe if there was a natural disaster- we would be able to carry out all of our belongings... Yeah. I know. It's no good. I know I have a problem, and that is always the first step to overcoming it.

I'm a hoarder. I hoard all kinds of things. Well let me rephrase that, I used to. I'm trimming down the hoards, slowly by surely and fighting the addiction.

I know what you mean- I hate giving up anything that has value, and I am slowly getting there too! Thanks for the comment!
