I'll use it forever...I promise!!!

Haven't we all justified a splurge-y purchase with the little promise to ourselves that "we'll use it forever?" or that we "won't need any other bag/shoe/whatever?" Of course we mean it at the time, but let's be honest--3 or 6 or 12 months later, don't we break down and buy another bag or pair of shoes or whatever? I know I do. I'm weak. And I'm a liar. What can I say?

But since I am a mother now, and as such am trying to be more fiscally responsible, I've been ignoring those empty promises as I've been eyeing up this Kate Spade baby bag for months (like, since before I was even pregnant...seriously, I've been going on KateSpade.com at least once a week since probably November). However, at $425, I just couldn't justify buying the bag, no matter how much I'd use it.

But guess what? Last week I got an e-mail that it had FINALLY gone on sale!!! And on top of that? It was an extra 25% off!!! And on top of that?? FREE SHIPPING!!! And on top of that??? I still had money left from my 2009 bonus from work!!!

So guess what?!?! That little ole baby bag shipped to me today!!!

And you know what?!?! I'll use it FOREVER!!!

(Well, at least for the next few years, anyway!)


  1. Ha ha, I totally know what you mean. I have made those little promises more times than I'd like to admit. But I know I work hard for my money and I do it honestly and fairly, so I can spend my extra cash how I want to. (At least until the baby comes!)

    Thanks so much for your email. It put a smile on my face to read it. And I do know that I will look back in a bit on my post from today and ask myself what I was thinking!

    I am adding you to my blogroll right now!!!


  2. Yayyy I love when this happens! (the something I love going on sale part) its interesting sometimes holding out and getting something at a steal is much more fulfilling that just buying it right away :)

  3. That is fabulous! I loove when something that I have been longing for goes on sale. That is a huge justification in and of itself!

  4. Hurray! It's a sign, you deserve it. Plus, a glam bag is the perfect thing to doll up rushed mum outfits! (Or would it just be me who'd look like I'd slept in a skip?)


  5. Wow! What a lucky girl! It's so awesome that you will be able to carry such a fabulous bag. Now, that's a super mom :)

  6. Yay yay yay! Sometimes you just need to splurge. And I think this bag is a great investment!
