I'm trying to get leather out of my life. Turns out it's a persistent little b*****, let me explain:<br><br><br><br>
I used to have a leather belt for school. I've given it up for the price of walking around waiting for any sign of them dropping down...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:"><br><br><br><br>
On top of that, my mom and dad's new couches are leather. Luckily there is a computer desk chair which I have been reduced to to stop my spine bending a new way by just sitting on the floor.<br><br><br><br>
Does anybody else suffer from things like these? Also, does anybody have any leather substitue sites they can share with us?<br><br><br><br>
Thanks and long live the carrot! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

Why not just use your belt until it wears out? It's been discussed many times here and that's generally the consensus.<br><br><br><br>
You can check for non-leather belts at <a href="http://www.veganstore.com" target="_blank">http://www.veganstore.com</a> or <a href="http://www.veganessentials.com" target="_blank">http://www.veganessentials.com</a>.<br><br><br><br>

My attitude toward leather is that if I can find something that is just as good and is not leather, I buy that. I see no need for leather seats in my car, leather furniture, leather coats, leather desk accessories, etc. I have some leather belts I'll wear until they wear out and then I'll see what's available. Shoes are tough for me - I have narrow feet and most manufacturers of shoes of man-made products don't make them for narrow feet. (And yes, I've looked.) So, I have leather shoes where I can't find non-leather ones that fit.<br><br><br><br>
If you're living with your parents, I wouldn't worry too much about the leather furniture. Just don't buy any when you move out on your own (and refuse any generous offers of their hand-me-downs).

I hate leather too. What sucks... my car's seats are leather. Trust me, I hate them. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my car (03 Jetta)... all but the seats! I didn't chose it, my sister did. I took over the payments on it (the only way I could afford a decent car).<br><br><br><br>
I also received a leather watch for Christmas. It's sitting on my bookshelf. My bro in law said he wouldn't be offended if I took it back, but I don't know what I should do... He doesn't have the receipt and I don't have the time to drive an hour away to exchange it. Anyone want to exchange it for me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
