Obsessed with a leather envelope clutch right now

Okay, so I’m not supposed to buy anything or think about buying anything, but this leather envelope

clutch thing… clutch-leather-envelope-DIY

I keep imagining how much chic-er it would be if I were to put my papers in that instead of some plastic folio.

I could also hug it to me (and my side). I also wouldn’t need to bring a massive purse to put that plastic folio in there, or a separate purse and hold the folio.

There is a DIY tutorial here, and I am seriously considering it if nice leather is not very expensive to buy.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

  1. Mochi & Macarons

    I’m putting the idea on hold until I figure out how much the scrap leather would cost.. and perhaps a cardboard flap to keep it sturdy..

  2. Below Her Means

    You might be surprised! Leather from a fabric store is far more inexpensive than buying something already made.

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      I should take a look. If it’s under $20, I could see if it’s a possibility. Otherwise….

  3. The Asian Pear

    I like the look but I like strappy bags. Especially crossbody bags. I like the idea of NOT holding anything. O_O;

    Also, as your friend and NOT an enabler, DON’T DO IT! (if you do, buy it in HK. Fashion stuff tend to be cheaper in HK. But don’t get US/Europe name brands or they’ll be pricier than in Canada.) O_O;;;

      Okay, okay…

      What if I try to DIY it? Is that an awful idea?
