7. Learn the difference between a purchase of value and a designer bag. Luxury goods come with their own brand names – this is what you are paying for. If you are not short of money, go ahead and buy a luxury bag. If you are looking for quality rather than quality plus famous name, then consider buying an ordinary brand whose quality is high yet prices are not high. Are you ready to pay over $1000 on bag made of plastic but having a designer label and certificates? Or are you looking for a good leather handbag from a less known manufacturer whose items cost maximum $200? Be in charge of your bank account and do not become another victim of the fashion industry. Fortunately, you are free to choose from a wide variety of companies, brands and young designers who are creative, unique and very stylish. Visit a few sites, local craft markets and gift stores – we are sure you will find plenty of excellent offers there.
