The most I've spent on a handbag is $200. My average handbag is $30.

My more expensive bags are leather, which I intend to keep for a while. My everyday bags are cheaper and I rotate/replace with the changing of the seasons. I care more about the function and style of the handbag as well as how it'll compliment my wardrobe as opposed to how much it costs.

My wife has a Louis Vuitton collection.

A few years ago we would purchase two bags a year for her. One for her birthday and one for Christmas.
Christmas two years ago I received a bonus at work and spent it on a 3000.00 edition.

She is now up to ten.
She also likes vintage Gucci and has approx eight of varying sizes and styles.

I love my wife, she deserves everything I can give her and then some.

Hehe, I think that every time I see a Kelly or Birkin walk by. I could pay off my car or pay my rent for the year.

I think the purse I have right now cost me around 25 bucks. It is holding up just fine and I have had it for 2 years. It gets tossed and thrown around my Jeep, onto the kitchen floor, etc etc.

I hate carrying a purse and the only reason I do is I need some place for my wallet and things. It is not a large purse by any means, and it suits me just fine.

I would not spend over 50 on a purse. I just don't see the need.

If anyone wants to spend $$$$$$ on a bag, so be it! It's their money. But I have to ask, is that the best thing that they can find to do with that much money?

I wouldn't go over $200. I live close to a Coach Outlet Store. I usually get my bags on sale from $59-$120.
