Here's the thing: Getting a full-priced designer bag is definitely a luxury we can't always afford, especially when we have other things to buy like gifts for our besties and teens. But if there's anything we've learned from honing our shopping skills throughout the years, it's that you can find designer handbags on sale.

More specifically, with a little sleuthing, you can find solid discounts on crossbodies, totes and clutches from top brands like Coach, Rebecca Minkoff and Staud (basically, all the brands you'd buy anyway). Almost sounds too good to be true, but we'll do you one better: Here are seven best-sellers you can buy now for less than $250, thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue's Friends and Family Sale. (Just keep in mind the sale ends on October 3, so you have less than a week to shop.)

19 Gorgeous Crossbody Purses You Need on Your Radar for Winter

1. Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

The Edie crossbody bag is equally functional and trendy, thanks to its adjustable strap, interior zip and exterior slip pockets, lobster clasp and chevron quilted nylon material. This also means it should feel lightweight as long as you don't stuff it to the brim.

2. Rebecca Minkoff Megan Tote

If you need a new tote for work or travel, you can't go wrong with this chic leather style. The classic silhouette makes it timeless, and the roomy interior means you can fit all of your essentials inside it. Not to mention, the cherrywood color is the cherry on top as we head into fall.

3. Coach Chaise Crossbody Bag

Choosing the perfect handbag is all about the details, like whether it's made of leather or has a turn-lock closure. This one ticks both those boxes, and on top of that, it has an adjustable strap to get it to fit to your liking. And as for pockets, its got two: one in the back and one on the outside.

4. Staud Mini Sasha Shoulder Bag

Slouchy bags are having a moment right now, and if there's any style worth every penny, it's this one right here. It's made of leather so it will age nicely and it's also nice and roomy so you can toss in your wallet, phone and water bottle with room to spare.

5. Coach Everyday Tote

From its convenient roomy interior to the snap closure, this leather tote will quickly become your go-to bag for all occasions. Oh, and did we mention it comes with a removable monogram zip pouch to secure your valuables? Score!

6. Coach Tabby Shoulder Bag

With an adjustable and removable strap, you can transform this style from a crossbody to a shoulder bag in no time. Most importantly, it's made of smooth leather, so it shouldn't flake or crack.

7. Coach Beat Baguette

Besides the signature C-buckle, structured body, leather material and endless pockets (it has seven), the goldtone chain on this bag make it one of the coolest styles to wear this season.
