Can a Bag be an Investment?
Often to justify a purchase of a new must-have handbag, I will say "but, it's an investment!" So my savvy family (male members only) will reply instantly, "does it pay dividend quarterly?" How rude! Is a Hermes Birkin truly an investment or should we just admit we covet the bag and that is why we are paying $7000 for the little savvy darling! The cost of a Birkin or Kelly has doubled in the last 10 years, so by buying first, a gal is actually saving???? Personally, deep down I know a purchase is a purchase and has nothing to do with "investment" for the future, I just don't want to admit it. The most I can hope for is to make a savvy decision so a handbag costing thousands will give me many years of usage and utility or utils (happiness and satisfaction in economics). Do you invest in bags or just happy to buy bags, no excuses??
