Quality is an important factor when it comes to what we purchase for everyday use. I remember being in my first year of university and buying a bag every other month because it would be torn or no longer pleasing to look at.
I calculated the amount I had spent on bags the whole year; it was more than the amount for an expensive bag I had been longing for, but I was hesitant to buy because of the price. Imagine how I felt after the realization…
I decided to take stock of all my purchases and doing average calculations, I kid you not when I tell you that the same bag habit continued with everything else in my closet or on my desk. Not that there is anything wrong with buying stuff for a lesser price, but quality should definitely be a factor to consider.
The 20s are the years to take stock and set standards when it comes to what you do and value. I am proud to say I have taken the decision to stop buying things because they are cheap, but rather look at quality, durability and proper fit. My finances seem to go in large chunks but it is better to spend on a leather bag that will last you years. That knockoff pleather one will have you coming back to the store next season for a new one. Totally not worth it if you ask me.
Those that know me are aware that bags are totally a thing for me. I really love good quality bags because I carry quite a lot in mine. A bag also says a lot about you just like a pair shoes.
Obviously, my first-year varsity experience taught me a lot…that’s why I am plugging you guys to the real stuff in this post.
