    I have my eyes on a new arrivals handbag from Fiorelli, which costs £52 after discount. It's very stylish and compact - but at that price, I'm not sure whether to buy it or not. So, I'm wondering, how much money do you spend on a handbag?

    Designer bags really are high quality finishing though. And they retain their value if you ever want to re-sell them. Some (Chanel, LV, Hermes) even appreciate in value so it's a solid investment.

    the most I've spent on a 2 messenger bags was £875 (1 Montblanc and an LV) for personal use
    but
    for commercial trading I've spent £3,500 on a used Hermes Birkin which I bought in Yorkshire on holiday and I took it back to London and got £8,000 from a dealer

    My parents bought me a mulberry for my 18th, which looking back on it was the biggest waste of £900, seeing as I don't carry a handbag now. Phone goes in one pocket and card holder goes in another pocket

    My max is £35, I usually spend £25 because I use the bank of mum and dad and they aren't made of money 😂

    I treated myself to a red leather Gucci handbag out of my first pay packet when I was a dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris in 1987. I got all dressed up so I would look the part, and went in to their shop on the Rue Du Faubourg Saint Honore. I still have the receipt. It cost 2,000 Francs, or roughly £200. Sadly since then, one side of the straps has come away.

    Between £0 - £1,500. My handbag addiction has been steadily increasing since the age of 16.

    For a typical purchase I would spend around £50 but once I qualify I'll be spending far, far more on my bags. Right now I'm saving up a bit for a mid range designer.

    Most I've spent was just over £2500 on a dior bag, one of the best purchases I made. Got it for doing well at the start of year 10

    It depends. Usually around $80-$150 for tote bags. I like big bags so I usually end up spending that much, but I don't really go for high end luxury brands. I just don't think it's worth it. Just recently, I bought a black shoulder bag that's super classy and versatile. I love it and it was like $80. This is Australian dollars, by the way.

    I got a leather bag from H&M or Zara--forgot which one--for under £30. I think it was Rp.300,000/£20 at the time. It's gone though plenty of abuse over the past 3 years and is small, lightweight, and goes with everything. I can fit 3 books, a large phone, and a wallet in it easily. 10/10 would recommend.

    Edit: Not a handbag btw. Its one of those shoulder bag things (???) uh. I'm a shoe person not a bag person I'm sorry.

    Also, I get hand-me-downs from my mum, who is most definitely a bag person. Her most recent purchase was a dead ugly Fendi bag that could buy me 6 pairs of shoes. *cri*
