every other week, my sister-in-law and i text back and forth…it usually starts out as a quick question, but then we start to ramble about other rando things. the other night we started chatting about purses. see, the boy oddly understands my obsession with bags…her boy “understands the importance of a purse, but to him it could be a brown paper bag vs a vuitton” which is the normal guy reaction to spending money on a new purse…and i completely get that — purses are expensive — and vuittons are REALLY expensive unless you buy them used off ebay. also, when you have young children, you run the risk of dropping your new beautiful vuitton in pee or vomit…gross and sad face.
presently her current purse is from target, but it has a broken strap so she is in the market for a new bag that doesn’t break the bank. since she claims to be purse challenged, she gave me an idea for a post. see, recently i posted a backpack round up but didn’t necessarily keep budget in mind…i just picked purdy backpacks. in my sister-in-law’s case, i was not given a specific color or budget restriction to stay within but based off our conversations, knew louis vuitton was a no go for hubby. she said, okay, you do the work so i just have to send my boy a link…i’m down with that…spending other people’s money? sign me up!
