The most I've ever spent on a purse was around $60ish, but I carry it all the time and love it. At one point and time I would have a purse and carry it for years before even thinking about getting a new one and it was always a cheapy. Now that I'm ready to spend a little more if I find something I love, I can't find anything I love. I bought one over the holidays, but for $130 it wasn't absolutely perfect in some of the functionality so I returned it. The search continues. I'm fine if it's a cheapy, I just want something new to carry that's fun and cute and I want a bright color.

I've tried Marshall's and TJ Maxx and they had squat! There must have been a purse buying rush or something because the racks were practically empty.

I hate waiting on people.

Got a call at 11:30, FIL is dropping off lunch for the boys. So I put off my workout so i won't be interrupted and have to answer the door all sweaty in a pair of shorts and tanktop when it's cold outside. He just got here (1pm). I could have been done and showered by now.

I buy purses online, just like shoes. You can set the price limit.

I bought me a guava and a passionfruit at Whole Foods!

I found a bright green purse on ebay I like. Mr. Spring says "Whoa, that's GREEN."

HAHA!! I may have to get it.

I love purse shopping on ebay. Any price, size, material, color, style you want. Even at my max limit of $25 per purse, there are zillions to choose from. Ohhh, I think I need a new purse.

I'm a grumpy person but I'm usually very patient. I don't mind standing in line. I talk to other people in line, I read the tabloids, I look at all the gum.
But when I end up behind a crazy couponer who doesn't warn those behind her that she is indeed a coupon nut job and now it will take another 20 minutes to use her god***n coupons, I lose my patience.
I apologize to the others in line for my choice of curse words. Honest, I didn't mean to say them that loud.

I wish all of you would come over and take away some of mine; I seem to find them everywhere.

Rou, if you want the purse badly enough, have them ship it to me and I'll send it to you.

I can't believe the one night I'm finally interested in attending a party coincides with the worst weather we've had in two years.

Tumblr is a cesspool of mess like that. Have you seen the transethnics? People who are one ethnicity but feel they ~truly are another ethnicity deep down~~. I honestly cannot.
Yes! Then you get white folks trying to claim the oppression of people of color!

That's funny, I could almost have written the same thing word for word, and I also want something with perfect functionality (for me) that is fun and cute and a bright color, I'm tired of boring neutral colors.

KK, I did try Marshalls. And TJMaxx, and Steinmart, plus Kohls and Macys (I had coupons!!), etc., but no luck.

How do the rest of you buy purses online? I feel like I have to see it and touch it and make sure it's the perfect shape and size, and see if it has structure or if it's slouchy, and look inside to make sure it has all the right slots and zipper-thingies and such. (I may be a little picky....a little) How do you do it?

My purse I surprisingly found at Goodwill. Maybe try thrift stores & whatnot? You might be surprised.

Ooooo, I love you, missbanjo! We just had a new Goodwill store open up in our county. I'll check it out, thanks!

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I am now the owner of compression socks.

And they're AWESOME! Clearly, I'm approximately 80 years old.

Nice! I happened to mention to my sister that I wanted to buy a pair for work but had a hard time finding them in the store, so she picked these up for me from the scrubs store: 14317 - Black Compression Knee Highs/1 Pr.

I've already noticed a huge difference in my legs after a long day at work! However, I'd be lying if I said I haven't considered wearing these all the time. I have pretty bad circulation in my legs! I'm thinking I might need to try some heavier duty ones in the future, but we'll see.
