But if the quality is good, and you don't go crazy, then enjoy.Related: https://www.financialsamurai.com/the-10x-investment-consumption-rule/
Quote from: Nigel on January 02, 2019, 06:05:25 PMI asked the coach sales lady if there were less expensive ones and she steered me to last years close outs. This was a couple years back and $200 was the ballpark. She didn't give me any attitude which was nice and was really pleasant.Wife liked it and it's held up pretty well...she does not treat it delicately and it's her everyday carry. It's not something she would ever buy for herself since she too is frugal.This isn't MMM so it's doubtful anyone will put you in the wall of shame for buying something nice within your means...of course the assumption is that it is easily within your means and you are already doing all the prudent stuff Sam writes about...
