High-end designer handbags; wouldn’t it be great to turn up to the next social event with one? They are a guilty pleasure for many, and a luxury that many more simply can’t afford. With some designer bags going for several thousand dollars, it’s easy to understand why.
However, this doesn’t have to be the case. You too can have a high-end designer handbag without breaking the bank. You simply need to be smart about it.
Know what you want:- There are several different high-end designer handbags. While you may have a long wish list, there are probably a few that stand out. Pick your top three handbags. These should be the bags that you really want and consider them an investment piece. Figure out what you like and try buying a classic bag that goes up in value every year. A great example of an investment bag is a classic Chanel flap bag, or the Christian Dior — Lady Dior. Do your research on the current market value and what resale value is on the item.
Consider second-hand bags:- You may also want to consider shopping for a second hand designer bag. There are many people who purchase designer bags and sell them later at an affordable price. Many of these bags are usually in great condition. You may even find some that are as good as new. Buying second hand is usually an affordable way for you to get your hands on the bag you’ve been wanting without breaking your bank.
Start saving:- Now that you know what you want, how much it costs and where you can get it, you can start saving with that goal in mind. The great thing about buying second hand is that a lot of resellers have a layaway option.
If you want that high-end handbag, consider giving up something else such as your daily Starbucks coffee or eating lunch out, and instead of packing lunch. These small changes will help you save a lot of money over time. Before you know it, you will soon have your designer handbag.
Look out for sales:- This is a great way to save money on your purchase. Set up alerts to keep up to date with sales from your favorite stores. This will ensure that you won’t miss your chance to get your designer bag at an even better price.
You don’t have to be a celebrity or an extremely rich person to own a designer handbag. With a little planning and some work, you can own a high-end designer handbag.
