Marc Jacobs Handbag

"Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could buy 50 purses from a local retail store."

 

 

Marc Jacobs Handbag

by Emily Burson

Okay, I will admit it. I am a bit cynical about the whole Marc Jacobs Handbag craze. I like nice things, and my family would tell you I have expensive taste. However, let me be the first to say, “Give me a Break.”

I can think of a lot of things I could do with the money it costs to buy one average sized Marc Jacobs Handbag. Here is just a small list:

  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could pay ahead several months on my student loan, car loan, or both.
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could have grocery money for a year
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could buy 50 purses from a local retail store.
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could be well on my way to financial freedom.
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could make a sick child’s wish come true through the Make a Wish Foundation.
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could be well on my way to a dream vacation.
  • Instead of buying a Marc Jacobs Handbag, I could stuff the money in a coffee can, bury it in my backyard, and consider that a similarly wise investment.
  • Like I said, I’m a little cynical about the whole Marc Jacobs Handbag thing. I mean, sure, they’re pretty to look at and seem nice and trendy. However, let’s think about this. It’s a purse. If you’re anything like me, your expensive Marc Jacobs Handbag will carry things like your checkbook (now empty because of your purchase of the Marc Jacobs Handbag), some chapstick and lipstick, a pen (that can and will leak at some point), a wallet, gum, and who knows what else.

    Your Marc Jacobs handbag is going to get dirty. It’s going to end up on floors of movie theaters and dressing rooms and gym locker rooms. It’s going to get smashed, and rubbed up against, and probably get something gooey spilled on it within a month. If you are a parent, consider your Marc Jacobs handbag, with all the pockets, to be the perfect place for army men, my little ponies, pacifiers, cheerios, and hair ties.

    There is nothing wrong with wanting nice things and with buying nice things. Just think practically. Unless you are one of those few people in the world with extra money, zero debt, and nothing to buy, please think twice about spending hundreds of dollars on a Marc Jacobs Handbag. Give that money to charity, give it to your children, heck, give it to me! I promise I won’t buy a Marc Jacobs handbag with it!
