Judy Ann Santos has never considered herself as "magarbo."

Although admitting she is not immune to luxury items, Judy Ann said, "Mahilig ako pero hindi ko kayang bumili."

She told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on Monday, June 14, in a PEP Exclusives interview via Zoom, "I mean, hindi kaya ng puso ko. E, kasi, nanghihinayang ako sa pera.

"Para kasing, kasi bag lang siya. Puwede naman ako sa bayong o sa eco bag."

Judy Ann does treat herself from time to time, but she said, "Kaya kong bumili ng branded na bag, basta installment kasi parang it's just...

"I'll allow myself to buy a couple of things like nice shoes. Pero shirt-pants lang naman ako at saka sneakers.

"So parang hindi rin applicable sa akin bumili ng mga heels na mamahalin kasi hindi naman sila gagamitin araw-araw."

So, instead of splurging on luxury bags or shoes, she would rather spend her money on groceries or gas.

"Iba-iba lang talaga tayo, e. Iba-iba lang. Para sa akin kasi, ang mas ano ko, e, bibili na lang ako ng pagkain or ipangga-gas ko na lang ito ng sasakyan."

"Parang dun ako sa mas daily essentials."

Judy Ann added she would only buy a luxury bag with a mind to hand it down to her daughters Yohan and Luna.

She said, "Bibili lang ako ng branded na bag para lang, let's say, may pampamana ako kay Yohan or kay Luna.

JUDY ANN'S CHECKLIST BEFORE BUYING HERMES BAG

The 43-year-old Kapamilya actress recalled the time she bought an Hermès Lindy bag, which her social media followers often see on her Instagram feed.

The smallest Hermès Lindy is priced at PHP341,000.

Judy Ann said she gave it a lot of thought before making up her mind.

"At saka yung bag na yun, may binili akong Hermès na bag, tinanong ko muna, 'Puwede po ba ito installment?' Okay, puwede, so check.

"Tinignan ko muna kung kasya yung mga gamit ko. Kasya? O check.

"Anong kulay? Brown. Check na check kasi napaka-neutral nung color niya. Kahit na anong suot ko, puwede siya.

"Kasi hindi naman ako mapormang tao. Kailangan ko ng very neutral na bag."

For Judy Ann, having this bag is enough.

"Meron akong Chanel na flap bag at saka yung Hermès, yun na yun. Okay na yun."

Judy does own other luxury bags, but these are gifts from her Magkapatid co-star Sharon Cuneta.

She revealed, "Si Ate Sharon would give me luxury bags kasi nga alam niyang hindi ako... Hindi sa hindi mahilig, hindi ko lang talaga siya kayang isapuso na [bumibili].

"Ang mahal-mahal naman kasi. PHP400,000 para sa isang bag? Panginoong diyos ko naman."

"Ang daming grocery na nun. Ang daming truffle oil na nun."
