the Netflix of....handbags??

I read about this website months ago and was intrigued - Bag Borrow or Steal is a membership site that allows you to "rent" designer handbags and other accessories. I have not tried it because I don't get that excited about designer handbags, but I do think it's a great idea for "affordable" luxuries.

Here's an example: the Prada bag shown here is listed at $2,195 but rents at $117 for a week.

Membership rates are pretty low - $10 a month or $60 a year. And the "Steal It" option is once you have it, you may decide you want to keep it. On the website, they will quote a cost for you and charge it to your credit card they have on file should you agree to the price.

If anyone is a member or subsequently joins after reading this, please let us know what you think!
