IKEA Tote Bag

The latest ridiculously overpriced merchandise making headlines is the Balenciaga large shopper bag, which sells for $2150. A lot of people have been pointing out that it looks suspiciously similar to IKEA's "frakta" shopping bag, which sells for $0.99.

However, the two bags are not identical. The Balenciaga bag is made of leather. The IKEA bag is plastic.

Made from the hide of Babe the Blue Ox. No wonder it's so expensive.

I prefer to carry a canvas bag - durable, unpretentious and ,best of all, at a price of about ten dollars. People who can afford the Balenciaga bag don't go shopping by themselves anyway. They hire someone to do it for them.
