How To Afford Your First Chanel Bag. What girl doesn’t want a Chanel bag? I bought my first one (and then another!) this year. It doesn’t have to be out of your league or seem impossible to achieve. I felt like I was never going to own one. Every year the prices go up and it seems like they set the goal post farther and farther away. I’m going to share my tips on how I made it happen – and how you can too!
How To Afford Your First Chanel Bag
Your mindset matters
To manifest your dreams (or your dream bag) you have believe it can happen. To do so, start imagining yourself carrying the Chanel bag. Know everything about it from color to style. In your mind, you should feel like you already own it. This is how manifestation works quickly. Creating a vision board, or Pinterest board, will also help you envision your Chanel bag.
Set financial goals
Now that you dreamed about your Chanel bag- let’s make it financially happen. I suggest creating a log of how much money you can save each month to hit your end goal. Here are a few tips to speed up the process:
- Sell unwanted clothes and shoes on Poshmark. This will give you some extra funds and speed up the process.
- Ask for money towards your Chanel bag from friends and family that inquire about what you want for your birthday or Christmas.
- Do you have any special talents? You can open up an etsy shop or sell your services on places like Fiverr. Having a side gig helps you meet your financial goals faster!
Avoid Impulse Purchases
Impulse purchases are going to be your biggest set-back when it comes to pulling the trigger for your first Chanel handbag. It’s so easy to buy a shirt on sale, head out to a fancy dinner with friends, and then go to Amazon for some online shopping. That money adds up quick! You will need to stay disciplined to buy your first Chanel handbag. Keep track of your finances (this tracker may help you). It will pay off in the end, I promise!
Research Colors, Fabrics, Prices
Do your research. Find out what color handbag you want. Popular colors like black tend to resale for higher prices. More trendy colors tend to be cheaper. Do you want lambskin or caviar leather? Lambskin is softer and feels more luxurious but scratches easier. Caviar leather is a lot tougher but holds up longer.
You will learn that depending what style and color you choose will change the price.
This is my best tip! Shopping here can save you thousands of dollars! I recently saved over $1,200 on my Chanel boy! It’s my favorite way to buy Chanel. Justifying a brand new Chanel bag (when most of them start around 5k) is just really hard to do. Buying pre-owned can make purchasing that coveted Chanel bag a little more in reach of your goals.
