London: Singer Dannii Minogue says she loves her designer handbags so much that she refuses to even throw them out when damaged.

The 40-year-old Australian beauty said she won't get rid of them unless they are damaged because she knows she will always be able to find a use for them, a website reported.

"I was on a 10-week waiting list for my beaded bag years ago, and it cost a bomb. I still love it. Unless handbags are damaged, it feels like sacrilege to chuck them. If you loved them once, you'll surely have occasion to use them again," she said.

As well as investing in designer bags, Minogue is a huge fan of good quality luggage as it can last for ages.

"My Louis Vuitton roller bag was a 30th birthday gift, and it still looks brand new. I use it on every single flight I take. I can pack so much stuff in it and it takes the weight off my shoulders," she added.
