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.)
