Should I buy mother a $400 Coach purse that she has wanted since March but can't afford. She has two already. I'm a guy and don't understand purses. Enlighten me.

Coach items are well made and very durable. My wife has two Coach purses and uses them all the time, but also buys her clothes at Old Navy and otherwise doesn't give a crap about having brand names or expensive status toys. If your mom is on a tight budget but otherwise knows how to stretch her money to make ends meet, and you can afford it, get her the purse. If she's behind on bills, maybe you can use that money to help her in other ways.

good call. you ask accountants and they suggest financial training. wtf? people shouldnt judge.

i buy my kids cars and someone told me how i spoil them. ok, my son is in the military and makes $3 an hour (actually work time, not the "there are 24 hours in a day nonsense.:

so i spent an entire paycheck that would have cost him over 3 months pay. he goes to fight in İraq soon, least i could do.

I don't get purses either (and I'm a woman), but the thing here is that it's meaningful to your mom. So decide if you want to spend the money making your mom happy.

Guys spend money frivolously as well. Anything I can think of can come in a stupidly ridiculously expensive version as well.

It is probably nice to spoil your mom if she will let you. My mom would freak if I spent that much on her. My wife would kill me if I spent $5k on anything. But then again, I am not rich and she is not materialist.
