I hate the “Kawaii NEET room” shit
The regualr scrote NEET rooms are bad enough, I don’t need this thrown into the mix too. And you know for a fact none of it is getting cleaned. I’m tired of it
similar to this: i absolutely hate those "aesthetic" fake-minimalistic rooms that require you to buy a shit ton of boring decorating items and furs etc only to end up in a white-grey prison cell that millions of other girls on social media also live in
it looks empty, boring and depressing, yet probably cost you a ton

Apart from all the consoomerism, another thing I hate about anime rooms is that they all look the same, I cannot stand the led lights trend as well, hope it dies soon and people cringe thinking how their room looked like that. I used to think having many celebrities or boy bands posters where horrible, but I still prefer it before the new teenage room trends

Any perfume collectors or possibly consoomers? I haven't lived with my mom for a good while now but she used to buy perfumes almost obsessively, but has stopped now. Whenever I go to visit there's just an entire box of unused perfumes set aside to be sold. How the fuck do you check secondhand perfume prices? Surely someone's buying…
My favorite is Dior's hypnotic poison, I have no idea if it's considered good or not, just that it's one of the first my mom bought for me as a young adult.

I'm the anon you responded to. Don't get me wrong, I actually like maximalism, my Pinterest board even looks like this. My problem is when, as you say, instead of cluttering your house with things that look good together or coordinate well, you only fill it with junk from a brand or a certain character, just because you want the product instead of a finished room that actually looks good.

Well, I am trying to acquire a couple of "vintage" barbie dolls from the 90s just to find out that they are ridiculously expensive. And I am not even talking about in the box, I was looking for used ones. It makes me so mad.
I'm sorry anon, I've noticed the price for a lot of used goods have shot up in price right after Covid hit thanks to nostalgia and a few other factors. Just be patient and look frequently in as many places as you can, making sure you have the cash ready to go.
This makes me wonder if we should have a wishlist thread so we can help anons find goods they're looking for but I wonder if that would do more harm than good.
can you post an example of this?
big fan of camsquares personally for organization– e.g. prevents onion skins from getting everywhere in my pantry and therefore actually does serve a purpose in reducing how much i have to clean
but i have seen so many bad pantry organization products and i want to see some more
I will admit to having matching containers (real Tupperware, even) for everything in my pantry, fridge, and freezer. For me, it's easier to deal with food and keep everything fresh/visible/usable when it's organizers in these containers rather than the random different packages that everything comes in. Also, I probably have some mild form of OCD; the neatness and visual consistency is relaxing to me.
I buy food in bulk because I hate grocery shopping but love to cook (and eat). Costco is my favorite store that is not a book store. But, I mostly buy and eat whole foods and ingredients versus the kinds of foods shown in the pantry org videos. And I eat every single scrap of everything that I buy. For me, the only judgment that I have toward the people in the pantry videos is that they too often let food go to waste. What's the purpose of "organizing" if you're just going to let that happen?

I used to collect beanie babies as a kid and then beanie boos as an adult. I gave a bunch to a charity shop a while back because most (the boos) were from an ex so.. memories. He'd be an asshole and then buy me a 7 euro plush to make it up to me lol. The size of the collection really told a story when you consider that.
I've wanted to pick out 2 new ones that are self bought and that won't turn into a collection. I have one tiny triangular shelf that I wanted to stick 2 on and be done. I looked in a store months back and I nearly bought one but spotted a hole before reaching the cashier. I left it. Eventually I order 2 online and they arrive today… one is fine. Other had its head hanging off. I used to have so many of these things and never encountered holes for years. When you go on amazon it's popping up alot now in reviews. Like you've been making plush for decades?

This video made me search the term "that girl" and it's even worse than what I though. This is such a shallow and also timeconsuming way to mesure achievment, I'm afraid for the young girls being influenced by this trend becaus eI don't think that this is actually what bring sucess and hapiness. This formula of hapiness is not designed to achieve a goal but to be visually pleasing in a vlog format. This is hell on earth. Can we make women entering the workforce and truly achieving goals at their work the new cool definition of "that girl" ?
"that girl" literally just means to be a girl who stands out or a girl people want to be like.
a girl who is by far the best-dressed at an event is "that girl". doesn't have anything to do with tiktok or being rich or waking up at 5am kek. nonnies pls

That cream cheese pushed me over the edge.
NTA but I think it goes without saying that you should only bother with aesthetics if it actually brings you happiness. If it exhausts you and you only care about how other people see you, it's not worth it. But if organising your fridge makes you feel better in your space, it's a nice thing to do.
As cheesy as it is, I apply the 'sparks joy' concept to stuff like that. All this hoarding consoomer shit does not spark joy for me but I definitely cultivate my space so that it does, ensuring stuff used in your mundane daily life is appealing does make a difference.

I've been thinking about your question anon, I'm not super knowledeable on modern art but I do look at some of it sometimes. I can't remember a really good contempory piece on the subject unfortunately, it feels like we might have reached a peack during pop art on this thematic.
However I do like how some fashion are using thoses themes like in picrel.
I've been thinking on this same topic for a while. I think there's a huge difference between doing something because of an exercise in creativity/reflecting what you like to see in your own surroundings and just doing something to upload it to aesthetic tik tok. "Aesthetic" used in the modern sense carries an air of doing something just to be seen and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Decorating yourself and your surroundings according to personal taste is very human behavior, all of us have the urge to do it, (if you were stranded on an island and had free time, wouldn't you decorate your lean-to with seashells to add a glimmer of happiness in a shit situation?) But boiling it down to being just cut-and-paste "aesthetic" is ingenuine, it's sanitized and empty. You can tell that a lot
of people featured ITT only care about uploading an aesthetic video or photo after buying the "right" things to be considered "aesthetic" by faceless viewers. That's fucking weird. But I think if a person decorates every inch of their space with patterns and styles that they themselves find happiness in without believing they have to spend money in order to truly express themselves, then that's no different from our ancestors painting on cave walls. The girl in the video, however, is greatly reducing the shelf life of the food in her fridge just for a video. That's why I find it pointless. If she really wanted to, she could find nice-looking containers for her things and just keep that little novelty to herself. Not everything you do needs to be blasted on every corner of the internet for random people's likes and views.
really good explaination nonnie
, I agree
>>1018208>I don't think it's creativity when you buy some plastic containers and fill your fridge with it even when some foods have their own packaging already.
I disagree. I think whether it's creative, rather than consoomerism or simple utility (a lot of food packaging doesn't actually keep food fresh once its opened), depends on why you're doing it. And it can be a combination of things.>>1018220
Ngl, I would love to see the Toy Story kitchen.>>1018230
If it's exhausting, don't do it, but having an aesthetic is not stupid. There was a whole movement about this very thing at the turn of the 20th century.>>1018242>Aesthetics are first and foremost about something looking pretty or visually pretty, that's hardly reflecting of your vision and values if you ask me.
I definitely value beauty. Always have. I am a very visual person and will always choose the pretty (to me) option if given a choice because that is truly important to me. There is more than enough ugliness in the world. I don't have to settle for it in my home. I make choices that included beauty along with all of my other values.>>1018252
This is what I was trying to say, but you did it better.>>1018283>Why does your fridge have to be an expression of anything?
It certainly doesn't have to be if you don't want it to, but there's nothing wrong with wanting it to, either.
The things making me the most irrationally angry are those fucking nails.

“Witchy stuff” are money pits too.
I agree with you. I've noticed a lot of people who are completely immersed in their chosen aesthetic have started to make fun of other people (mainly their older relatives) for not having a "cohesive theme" in their homes and for being "cheugy". From what I've seen, it's just little old grandmas who seem to value cosiness and displaying memories and stuff they love that they shittalk. Isn't that what a home is supposed to be anyway? >>1018533

only valid consumerism
Fill a basin with oxiclean and water (it'll give the ratio on the side), soak your clothes in them for up to two hours, then rinse. Repeat with fresh water until they're back to their original colors. Oxyclean can damage fabric, so be careful with how long you use it on natural fibers and don't use it all on silk or wool.
Group clothes with similar colors together. Buy fabric dye that works on whatever types of fabric you have, and use as directed. For pastels, you can try just watering down a regular dye if you're feeling brave, or buy actual pastel dye. A lot of dyes today can just be tossed into the washing machine, which is really convenient. In the future, only wash clothes with cold water to prevent fading.

It seems like I’m not the only one that likes the look of maximalist (idk if you could call pic tel maximalist or just cluttered) aesthetics, but hesitant or unwilling to actually make their living spaces reflect their personal tastes. In my house when I was growing up, a lot of the living room was filled with stuff , which were mostly utilitarian in use ,such as mainly storage boxes and suitcases, and I hated how it looked, so a part of me torn between having non-utilitarian stuff for the sake of it simply looking nice and the reality that I should probably just stick to utilitarian stuff but try to hide it away
That looks a lot like my home! I don't consider myself a consoomer since everything I bought is pre-owned and it took a few years to actually amass and start looking nice, but if you slowly get stuff that makes your life comfortable, as needed, it's not really consoomerism imo.
I hate soulless quasi-Scandinavian IKEA interiors, I could never feel comfortable in a place that doesn't feel like my own. I used to live with an ex who was a minimalist in the aesthetics sense and wanted to kms every morning when I woke up. It felt like something out of r/MaleLivingSpaces and soundproofing was awful because it was almost empty, no cozy rugs, shelves or paintings to soften the noise. Everything we talk about echoed and it permanently felt like we were still in the process of moving in. Never again.
It looks good aesthetically but there's no way they're keeping this clean and I can never look at any cluttered room, no matter how aesthetically pleasing, and get over that fact.

I'd try to get out this thought as good as I can.
Can modern veganism being seen as a consoom move?
Lately I've been interesed in vegan products since I didn't like meat so much to begin with, I was an extremely picky child and that stuck with me in adult age and I was happy to hear that more veggie and vegan option were added to supermarkets but when I got there they were SO processed and in SO MUCH plastic, it made me feel terrible. I hate processed food and I think that maybe getting two eggs from your local farm, and luckily I live in a country where you can easily find farmers, it's better than buying "vegan cheese" wrapped in tons of plastic and made out of almonds and other nuts. This is half sustainability and half consoom, but when I see vegan people feeling good just because they "respect animals" but then import shit from the other side of the world and fill their carts with plastic I die inside, why not buying fruit and veggies and make stuff by yourself, instead of falling for the "Corporations Care" meme?
This is not about the vegan choice per se, more like why going crazy when some big corporation announces vegan options with bright colors wrapped in plastic and are made to be appealing and to be consoomed, instead of focusing on the roots, those being fresh fruits, mushrooms, nuts and vegetables?
In pic, Lidl. I searched "vegan lidl" and this made my skin crawl

We're the same. I personally love some XIXth century styles interior (especially the neo gothic ones) as well as traditional interior from various countries. Pic related encapsulates pretty well what I like : deep colors, luxurious curtains, comfy rugs, beautiful wood, and fairy tale mirrors. I hate minimalist aesthetic, it's antithetic to the historical and folkloric aesthetics of every single one human culture. It's yet another example of post modernism destroying beauty.

I definitely see where you're coming from, but I think it's more a consequence of American consumerism in general than a specifically vegan thing. Variations on pastes made out of beans (tofu, falafel etc) have been made for ages without all the extra branding & packaging. In a similar vein, people have been making cheese for centuries, but it's a pretty uniquely modern phenomenon to buy it in single-serve quantities in plastic containers with cringey branding.
Food (vegan food esp) is definitely marketed in a 'consoom product' kind of way. But I don't think that should put you off veganism if you're doing it for animal mistreatment.
Ayrt, the thing is that I grew up with half of my family being farmers, my grandma would usually send me to fetch off the eggs from the chickens she had, but I didn't like meat at all, I don't like the flavour, texture (if something requires me to chew more than 30 seconds is trash) and all, the point is that growing up in a european countryside I always saw naturally no-waste products, naturally no processed food and all but obviously, in winter we had to rely on animals as if many vegetables won't survive, that's why when I grew up in a larger city I cringed when people said they respected life by eating vegan when vegan means processed food in plastic for them. It's not about the vegan diet per se, I repeat, is more like how people are missing the entire point if they pollute the environment with packagings. There's no point in buying metal straws if you buy processed vegan food and claim to be an animal lover, that's the point.
Same thing with people buying "vegan leather" which is essentially plastic, the "eco/green/sustainable" label is there to appeal to people but it's no different, if not worse, from animal derivates.

True, but a lot of it is no worse than mass-produced omni/veggie options, especially with the plastic packaging or shipping form overseas. Though there are some notable vegan alternative offenders like agave syrup, depending on where you live.
I'm definitely guilty of it though. I kind of see it as picking your battles e.g. caring about animal rights isn't negated just because you also want a soy burger. Though I know that's not a good argument either, problem is when I try to think about how I need to do better it's just exhausting.
But you're 100% right about the marketing for this stuff. Eat the vegan cheese, or don't eat the cheese, that company definitely does not care about the environment. It's even worse with Veganuary rn.>>1018965
Some vegan leather is good though, at least in terms of quality lasting over time. That being said, the best kind of leather anything is secondhand leather, and the vegans who cry "bUt It EnCoUrAgEs BuYiNG rEaL lEaThEr" are braindead and just looking for a way to be the most veganest-vegan in the room.
Veganism is actually hugely damaging to the environment.
To list just a few consequences>importing vegan foods dumps more CO2 and petrochemicals into the atmosphere>importing vegan foods also causes food poverty in the poor countries where the food is grown>soy and palm oil are common vegan food ingredients that are huge cash crops so rain forest is destroyed so they can be grown for profit>artificial fertilizer and pesticides used in crop production decimate ecosystems and poison water sources
A lot of this also applies to the standard modern diet but most non-vegans aren't under some sort of delusion that they're saving the planet by eating processed soy in plastic.
I firmly believe that some vegans are outright self hating sociopaths.
They share happy cows but don't care about sweatshops that are producing their clothes, protest for animal rights but don't contribute to clean water for everyone, manifest for a clean and safe world but are against medicines ("muh animal testing is bad!!" yeah you entitled fuck, then perish, we didn't extend our life span by years of research just for you to shit on it), scream for "Animal Equity" and would foster some animals, sometimes without even proper knowledge, saved from muh slaughterhouses but wont host a homeless person, won't eat the product of the bees but would eat child slave quinoa.
Idk I just feel they use it as an excuse to hate on people just because.

Attached image is a potash mine. Potash is needed to create artificial fertilizer to grow crops. Why this is bad is so obvious I'm not going to bother explaining it, yet to vegans this is preferable to a cow in a field shitting out free organic fertilizer.
Artificial fertilizers are only creating more problems anyway because they destroy the soil with long-term use. It's said that the quality (or rather degradation) of soil world-wide is a more pressing matter than the warming of the earth yet you never hear anyone about it. It takes many years for soil to recover so few in the agricultural industry are willing to make the switch to more sustainable, natural farming methods.
I'm in favour of small farms producing food for the local community with sustainable farming methods but I wonder if that's possible on a large scale with the size of the earth's population.

Is this consoomerism as well?
My dad is a fridge hoarder and it's terrible. It looks like your pic except other types of random shit. I can't grocery shop once a week and just go through my groceries throughout the week (I cook for myself and my idiot brother since my parents work until late at night) because he packs the fridge with random shit. He bought a second fridge "because the first one is packed" like no duh and it's your fault. I had to stop buying my carton of soymilk because he got pissed at the space it took up. A single carton of soymilk because my family is lactose intolerant and I'm the only one not stupid enough to drink milk (which we have).
Maybe like 20% of the fridge is actually food you can prepare and eat. The rest of it is endless amounts of sauces, tons and tons of juice, lots of expensive Chinese medicial herbs, and all little other bits of random shit he brings home from the restaurant he works at. It's infuriating because god forbid I buy a head of broccoli and don't get to cook it that night, then he gets mad because my broccoli is taking up space. Uh, do you… not see everything else that is yours? Our freezer broke down and instead of letting me get a repairman in (that I offered to pay for) he went out and bought a chest freezer. Filled that shit up too.
I buy fresh food for my dog and it has to be kept in the freezer and I pull out a pack to defrost as I need it. I literally ask for one little shelf or one little space just to have to put our dog's food in. As soon as space starts freeing up, he filled it up. He looooooooooves to wrap mystery meat in a brick of plastic wrap and put it in the freezer. There's tons and tons of these little packs of whatever fucking meat in the freezer. I thought maybe with a chest freezer that was quite a big size, we'd have some room and leeway now. Nope, it's filled up again. It drives me up the fucking wall. Our original freezer started working again and now he's filled that up too. What's the entire top shelf? ICE. He bought those molds that make ice balls (that people use a lot for bathbombs) and now has a bunch of ice balls up in the freezer. Our fridge has a ice maker/dispenser.
Fridge hoarding drives me up the wall. I'm always the one who gets yelled at for not eating what's in the fridge but the majority of it is either garbage food that no one wants to eat because none of us even asked him to bring it home, sauces, or some other random shit. He gets mad at everyone else when we run out of space but seems blind to the fact that he can easily solve his own problem by throwing out his own shit from the fridge.
Before anyone says "just clean out the fridge", I don't want to deal with 1) cleaning out his stuff because he won't learn and will just refill the space, and 2) don't want to deal with his inevitable tantrum that I've seen him throw when my mom cleans out the fridge. I long for the day I can have a fridge that other normal families have, even if it would be a bit messy.
Agreed except for this one:>>1017891
This one looks pretty
Immature men and autists shouldn't be allowed to manage their own money. This is not the first time I've heard something like this.
I knew a person who hoarded flour, water and eggs to make pasta and it was mandatory for him and everyone else to eat his homemade pasta at least once a week, of course he had a meltdown and threw tantrums if people moved his stuff to store other things like their own goddamn food or didn't want to eat that. Of course then he would make the pasta and never clean afterwards only to cry about the kitchen being dirty, he was diagnosed with a mental illness tho or maybe he was just a typical self entitled scrote.

>>1019100>Immature men and autists shouldn't be allowed to manage their own money.
This exactly. My dad doesn't have a bank account and his paychecks go directly into my mom's account and she handles all of their money, but he's allowed credit cards for some reason and has thousands of dollars in credit card debt. He's a huge consoomer, but not like anyone posted in this thread who sticks to a theme. He will buy any and everything. Facebook marketplace is now the bane is my existence because he buys so much junk. He will not sell anything on there, he just buys and buys and buys. He used to frequent those federal auction websites too. I mentioned how I'd like a tea set once because we have a small chinese one that we sometimes used and I thought it'd be nice to have one of my own, and he goes on that stupid website and buys a rusting ~*~antique~*~ tea set and got mad that I wouldn't use it. Um, I'm pretty sure it's a display only piece. My parents also shop at costco and BJs. They rarely buy prepackaged frozen foods, but we have 6 bottles of listerine just sitting on the floor when only my dad uses it, not to mention lots of other stuff like shampoo and toothpaste just piling up.
I think the only reason why I'm not a super rabid consoomer is because I am filled with a sense of dread because of my dad's consooming. This is not the type of person I want to be. This is not the type of place I want to live in. I don't want to live in a shiny, sleek minimalist magazine display, I just want to live like a normal person.
I am, nona.
Plus in Italy we have this "momma's boy" mentality where males just don't do shit until they're married, that's not directly a problem since more and more women are getting tired of it, but mix that mentality with a pinch of autism or a personality disorder and voilà, you get yourself a consoomer killing machine, since they can't grasp the concept of necessary spending, only comfort spending.

These look like they'd be a pain in the ass to prepare at home, even for a semi-experienced home cook. Buying pre-prepared food isn't inherently consoomerism, it's just lazy.>>1019070
dunno, the ingredient subscription boxes are fine so long as the food isn't wasted. They're usually geared towards people who want home-cooked meals but don't know how to cook or people without access to good produce. Wouldn't touch one myself but they meet a real need.
"a pain in the ass to prepare at home"
Are you american or just retarded? Fried rice and veggies are the laziest of the laziest food you could prepare at home, it's also street food in many parts of Europe and Asia. Learn how to cook.
Anyway, for those things you quoted, just think that you can grow your own livestock all year, if you want some specific vegetables or fruits, you have to import that shit. Also, yes, there's soy for the animals but that can be bypassed if you buy your meat locally, meanwhile, try to get those sweet almonds or tofu from anywhere that isn't asia.
>>1018818>you should buy your toddler an ipad
I'm convinced that this (in addition to other shitty parenting trends) is a huge contribution to the current cohort of childrens' failure to thrive. There's a critical period of development between the ages of 2-6 where children's brains adapt to their environment; for example, australian aborigines develop strong spatial perception skills in order to navigate terrain with few landmarks. Guess what happens when you expose your kid to oversaturated, rapid-paced, narrative-free stimuli?>>1018953
It's consumerism, but so is the reddit-tier 'BE A REAL RED-BLOODED AMERICAN AND EAT THIS STEAK'-type marketing. Corporations play any angle they can to make a buck.
80% of the world's almonds come from California. And America EXPORTS soy to Asian markets because we're the 2nd world producer.
Also, you can make tofu nonnie
. It's easy, and you get soy milk out of it too. There's no need to import shit unless you're obsessed with avocados or other tropical fruits.

Ipad children are why we have so many ADHD adults, I stg. All children's programming has devolved anyway. Mr Rogers used to make sure never to do jump cuts bc he said exactly what you did - that his target audience was at the age when they were still forming their worldview, so it would convince them that life is supposed to more faster than it really does if you were to see him 'teleporting' from the living room to the garden without walking in between.
Babies and small children with ipads are just wrong…
Us millennials of course had videogames but with videogames you had to make something, finish quests and somehow you would end up even learning something (I taught myself english), children right now just stare at a screen in which mute adults just shit on themselves, what the fuck. Everytime I see a baby with an ipad and not some sort of interactive toy I think that the parents can't really be bothered about raising it and I'm almost always right.
The pic shows fritters, which are about as difficult and time-consuming to prepare as chicken nuggies. And as with chicken nuggies, it's crappy junk food and the cost x benefit for making them at home is low.>try to get those sweet almonds or tofu from anywhere that isn't asia
Most almonds are grown in California, and American-made tofu is easy to find because soy is grown virtually everywhere to feed livestock. But the 'well you can just buy local' cope falls apart easily given that the vast majority of both vegans and non-vegans don't put any effort into researching where their food is coming from; the only real difference is that red meat is objectively more destructive to the environment given the energy that ruminants require, and the increase in worldwide red meat consumption is why soy is being pushed into everyone's diet.
You're 100% right and they're just using the toy to keep the baby quiet while they play Call of Duty or Candy Crush. My mother managed to raise me in a post-Soviet hellscape, yet you'd think parents now have to go to war from how they talk about how hard parenting is. It is hard, but that's why you deliberately make this choice and plan carefully who to have kids with.
My cousin is such a lazy bitch and I feel bad for my niece (don't know the right term in English) because she doesn't even bother to put on some nice cartoons for her like Krtek or Moomins. Only dumb YouTube baby nursery rhymes over and over, she won't even sing any to her herself. My mom told her many times what to do but she doesn't really care.
OTOH, another thing I've noticed is that parents can be very bitchy to other parents and there's a lot of pressure to enrol your kid in 100 different elite classes and activities that the child doesn't even care about. They seem very afraid of letting their kid be bored and nobody lets their kids out to play by themselves in my neighborhood anymore. When I was a kid, my mom let me play outside with my friends and didn't know what I got up to until lunch time, now the mom has to go with the kid everywhere and keep watch. I see kids go up to their parents and expect to always be entertained too. That shit must be exhausting so in a way I get them.
These kids seem both over- and underparented at the same time.
>>1019327>nobody lets their kids out to play by themselves in my neighborhood anymore
My parents as kids went out and walked to friends houses a mile away and hung out as long as they liked, but with me, I was forbidden from going anywhere alone, having sleepovers and my dad would follow me in his car if I went to ride my bike.
I don't get how they were the hippie generation yet helicoptered me into being a shut in by the time I was 13.

or as justification for their eating disorder. the ones that are anti zoo really piss me off. zoos are great and do important conservation work, husbandry isnt inherently exploitative and keeping animals in "captivity" isn't inherently bad for them. there are bad zoos obviously but there's also an accredidation system and accountability. being anti-zoo is just sucking peta's geriatric woman-hating dick.
That's sad. Being bored as a kid is what made me develop hobbies of my own. I distinctly remember whining to my mum on a rainy day that "moooom I'm bored" and she was just like "then find something to do, lazy child. You think adults have fun activities like art time & music time lined up for them to do every day like I organize for you?"
Something I've also heard from teachers that I know is that kids aren't interested in tech class anymore. They've got really cool shit like VR headsets, and they're trying to make engaging activities like CREATING A GD VR GAME YOURSELF. When my friend mentions this to people in their 20s-30s, they think it's the coolest thing ever & want to be in her class. The kids don't care though. They'd rather stare at their cell phones. They don't want to learn or produce anything of value, only consume what's already been created.
There's a growing tech gap nowadays because of GUIs becoming too easy to use. Old people are still stuck in the mindset of "ask young people about my computer problems", but these zoomers can't even troubleshoot a simple error message, let alone program anything.

>>1019167>Like your skin breaks down if you don't reapply it regularly
I don't see many actives in her hoard that would cause such sensitization. Just a lot of masks (which in my opinion are wastes of time, money and plastic… Just moisturize and maybe use an ampoule or toner). If she actually uses all that frequently she'd just be over-moisturized like a lot of the sticky faced skinfluencers and posters on r/skincareaddiction. But there is no way she's giving enough time to work out which products do what for her skin, that takes at least a month of adding only one new product and observing. And the point is that people like this don't really care or do it for their skins health.
This is the part of the skincare industry that isn't about care but capitalizing on the "self-care" trend where everyone take selfies with masks on and using jade rollers.

Artificial fertilizer is basically produced from three chemicals, nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. The main source of potassium is phosphorite and the main source of phosphorus is potash both of which are open pit mined. Open pit mining is extremely hazardous for both humans and animals. Once the pit has been depleted it leaves behind mine tailings which are what is left over after ore has been separated from rock. Tailings contain toxic
and sometimes radioactive metals that enter the air as dust which then enters the atmosphere. If you want a worst case scenario for this look into Picher in Oklahoma. The other major hazard caused by mining is acid mine drainage. Rain water floods disused mines and the exposed ore dissolves into the water which then runs off into rivers and pollutes ground water.
If you want to know why veganism is being pushed so hard by major corporations follow the money. Companies such as Dow Chemical, Monsanto and Bayer stand to gain massive profits from the increased use of artificial fertilizer, pesticides and GMO crops. These are the companies behind such persistent organic pollutants as polychlorinated biphenyl, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane and polychlorinated dibenzofurans.>>1019175
It's called crop rotation. One season a farmer will grow wheat in a field, the next season he will allow the field to return to pasture and use it for grazing livestock. Growing wheat depletes the soil, cow shit and grass replenish it.>>1019474
The majority of animal feed is husk and chaff which is inedible for humans. It's also entirely possible to raise livestock on pasture alone.
Veganism isn't being pushed by the major companies you mentioned because most crop production is for livestock. The entire ag industry is pushing anti-vegan propaganda like the narratives you're using (which again apply to meat eaters as well, if not moreso). >The majority of animal feed is husk and chaff which is inedible for humans
Crops like soy are grown to produce animal feed; the items fit for human consumption (seed oil in this case) are the byproduct.
thank u i was too lazy to post a reply to that. im not even a vegan but its obvious that feeding 200kg of soybeans to a cow and then eating the cow is worse for the environment than just eating 1kg of soybeans for more or less the same nutritional content (this is called tofu and it's been around for thousands of years)>>1019243
my favourite one is that the common honeybee isn't native to the americas
jesus, are you actually retarded
the tofu at literally every asian grocery store ive ever visited in the usa has been made from non-gmo soybeans in the usa. theres literally a tofu factory in philly, probably the most american city.
and the proper preparation for that thing you linked is clearly deep frying, not stir frying
also street food is often not lazy food, and requires dedicated equipment. try cooking a taiwanese oyster omelet sometime
and properly stirfrying is way easier with a gas stove which most burgerfags dont have
i cant even list all the other ways you're wrong
How do people notice shit like what you explained, and not conclude that there's some kind of evil conspiracy?
Is there really
no other way to make fertilizer? Why is everything in almost every manufacturing process detrimental to the planet and all its living organisms? You don't actually have to kill people or the environment to make money, but it's clearly preferred. Wtf?
Oh no PETA runs animal shelters that have to put down sick abandoned pets that can’t be taken care of REEEEEEE muh doggos!!!
Meanwhile trillions of animals are slaughtered every year and those same people don’t give a fuck because they don’t want to stop eating burgers and cheese. If you cared about animals to the extent you hate PETA for putting some pets down then you should already be a vegan or else it’s silly hypocrisy.

Most people just don't care or are lead to believe in false solutions. Big chemical companies have been polluting the environment for over one hundred years. What usually happens is that they are allowed to produce a chemical until it's undeniable that it causes damage to life and the environment. Children are born dead and deformed, people die of cancer or are crippled by autoimmune diseases. The government bans the chemical and the tax payer then has to pay for the production site's remediation and clean up of toxic
waste. The big companies move on to something else and the process repeats.
>Is there really no other way to make fertilizer?
Sustainable farming is possible through correct land management. Fields are rotated between growing crops and pasture for livestock. This is how humans have fed themselves for thousands of years. The problem is that it doesn't generate profit fast enough.

They put down the wrong dog after being asked to put down another dog in the area. Mistakes like these happen in all euthanasia services.

We get it, you're vegan.
All euthanasia cases need documentation and the owner being present. Heck, PETA's Ceo said that himself, that he doesn't believe in pet ownership so they'll just run around doing that shit. Can't believe you really fell for them anon, lol

I don't agree with their platforms, but they're doing a good thing by euthanizing severely abused and neglected animals. If you're so worried about getting manipulated by big evil corporations, take a look at who's behind the petakillsanimals website. gg >What about them supporting Autism Speaks?
There's literally nothing wrong with Autism Speaks
"Putting down animals just because owners can't afford vet care good, eating animal bad"
What the fuck
Why not using PETA's donations money to pay the vet care, then? Why the hell do they even need donations and sponsorships? And if they put the wrong dog down, why acting like some burgly motherfuckers that run in people's yards and grab them by hand, instead of going out, having a talk with their owner, confirming that's the dog, putting it down and then calling some specified service to dispose of the body, instead of putting it in a plastic bag and dump them in some hole in the ground, as they always do? Dead animals need to be cremated, not put together with trash, that's even unsanitary and can lead to diseases.
I'm not even in a country in which PETA is present but damn, there are better organizations for animals and you're choosing to support the shittiest one

I assume that PETA is using funds donated by people who donate because they support the org's other platforms and/or donate because there aren't many organizations that travel to remote shitholes to put down suffering animals.

puhleaze i live with my whole family and in every case it's more practical to put two oj containers side by side on a shelf than in a box side by side on a shelf. my brother is gonna stack all types of shit where it doesnt go regardless. as soon as you decide to buy two 64oz cartons of soymilk rather than 2 52oz jugs of OJ that container ain't gonna fit everything side by side and is gonna be worse than useless. fridges are already designed with shit like this in mind, you just don't know how to use yours

I have a retarded coping mechanism.
Looking at vintage dresses on eBay puts me in a good mood. If I’m feeling upset, I look up 60s mod dresses, the super short type with the gathered waist and skater skirts and slightly puffed sleeves. I look up vintage Gunne Sax capes. I save dozens of tabs full of 1970s dresses, vintage patchwork skirts, 1960s mod dresses and early 70s tartan coats, black vintage dresses with fitted bodices and slightly puffed sleeves, and I have been mourning lately the fact that I will never be able to afford any of that because of where I live and the fact that I’m a poorfag, but mostly I’ve been mourning the fact that I’ll never touch the Victorian Maiden Ivory Petit Fours Skirt, and the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt. Whoever has the money to buy that skirt, I hate them. If there is one hater of the buyer of the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt, it’s me. If there are five haters of the buyer of the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt, I am one of them. If there isn’t any haters of the buyer of the Jane Marple Russian Doll skirt, I am dead.

I posted a picture of an open pit mine because I was discussing open pit mining and I posted a picture of acid mine drainage for the same reason. The example I gave of the destruction caused by mine tailings was actually caused by lead mining. All mining is environmentally destructive and causes the same issues.
Mining is not sustainable because earth minerals are not an infinite resource. Multibillion dollar mining companies extract phosphorite and potash from the ground through mining, profiting from the destruction of the environment. Phosporite and potash is then processed by multibillion dollar chemical companies with a disgusting environmental record. Hint Monsanto was the main manufacturer of agent orange, a deadly herbicide contaminated with dioxin, Bayer used slave labour provided by concentration camps and manufactured Zyklon B, Dow Chemical is the parent company of Hooker Chemical who caused the Love Canal disaster which was so bad it lead the formation of the US Superfund and Union Carbide which was responsible for the explosion of the Bhopal pesticide plant. These companies then sell their artificial fertilizer and pesticides at a profit to be sprayed onto monocrops which depletes the soil and pollutes the environment.
Veganism a marketing ploy by giant corporations who profit from the destruction of the environment.>>1019708>Wait until you learn about the runoff from factory farms!
Not once have condoned or even mentioned factory farms.
Production aims to never miss out on demand- wasted manufacturing costs are easier to bear than not meeting seller's demands and end consumers going elsewhere.
If the consumer culture were to change massively (ending fashion trends as we know it) perhaps we'd have a chance at stopping some of this damage- but to be honest it's more likely that things will only get worse as evident by gen z's Shein craze.
In the ideal world garments just need to be revolutionized; if there were a way to both make consumers desire long lasting well made pieces and stop being lured by "sales" (a full outfit used to cost at least
the equivalent of a few months work either in labor or currency for most of human history, our expectations are extremely spoiled today) while also ensuring the processing from start to finish is rooted in the natural, we would at least halt the damage to our planet.

>>1020110>>1020133>At the end of the day, all production is driven by consumer preference
No, the second anon is sadly right. Nowadays the goal is to produce tons of bullshit and market it to people. And if it doesn't sell? Well… into the landfill it goes>@MayTheFunkoBWY on Twitter shared the above behind the scenes video of thousands of unsold Funko products (Smuggler’s Bounty boxes and others) being destroyed rather than recycled or donated to charities.>One interesting note is that Funko is taking a one-time, $16.8 million charge to write-down the disposal of “slower-moving inventory to increase operational capacity.”
By blaming consumers (or even consoomers) and not giant companies producing shit, you are playing into their hand. They want us to be divided and squabble about who makes the most ethical choices while they gain money from regular and "ethical" brands, as well as benefit from the fact that we aren't looking for ways to stop them, ie make a movement demanding for a legislation stopping or at least slowing down the earth pollution resulting from producing crap.

I already talked about how I managed to declutter my shelves because I sold a bunch of video games, DVDs and manga I don't care about anymore in the previous thread, and now I'm thinking about how I still have some small notebooks I've bought for university that I didn't use after all. I also have a bunch of pens because I accumulated them thanks to jobs despite barely using the ones I bought before that. I'm wondering how I could use them to not waste them. I usually take notes on my phone if I don't have paper on me, and I already gave a lot of paper and larger notebooks to my youngest sister because she needed them for high school and now for university. I've already been thinking about using one small notebook to write recipes I can't find online (or the ones online are shit) but my mother just won't give me her recipes because she always forgets about it. Does anyone have any idea in particular on top of that one?
I already post this kind of things on a blog I made on tumblr, but I guess I could replace that Blog with one of the notebooks. I don't have any followers on tumblr even though people like my posts from time to time so I don't think it would be a huge change if I deleted my tumblr. I only use it to post stuff, I don't look for content or reblog anything, and I don't follow anyone either.>>1020312
I have no idea if she can donate anything just like that. She doesn't really go to uni, it's hard to translate it but she has classes within a high school building despite not being a high school student anymore. I remember that in my uni in my lasts years a student association put shelves where we could put anything we wanted to donate but I kept forgetting about it and leaving the things I wanted to donate at home every day. I'm going to ask her.>>1020319
I'll look for info on how to do that.
Both of those statements are true.

Pls no sperg But I relate to anons who have a small obsession with stationary. However, I did end up selling a lot of my stationary collection and after getting an iPad and slowly going paperless I feel so much better. Even just a google document/ digital notepad works just as well. (I don’t think I could go digital art only though, but I don’t hoard art supplies anyway)
I’m not completely paperless since I’m still a little paranoid about my digital stuff getting deleted for some dumb reason so I’m keeping 1 notebook that will let me keep a physical paper archive without it taking up too much space. I plan on getting a scanner too so I can get rid of some sketchbooks/journals/art books but still have pdfs of the images. Also would anons be interested in a thread where we could dump stuff like art book pdfs? I haven’t checked /m/ in a while. I only have a PDF of Kaneoya Sachiko’s entire art book so far but I’m sure anons have other stuff they could share.

I started consooming way more over the past two years. Pandemic isolation + new high salary + getting married meant buying lots more things than usual. I used to really shudder at the thought of buying unnecessary things, but I've definitely gotten addicted to the 'soom.
My worst offense is getting into scented candles and scented body care (lotions, shower gels, perfumes). I essentially have a mini-store in my closet. I know it's because I'm bored and lonely.
Picrel but not my collection.
Yes, setting up our household and also just having a even a very small wedding "broke the seal" on me feeling more comfortable spending money in general.>>1020421
I don't have that much free time. I work full-time+ and use these scented things either while I'm working (candles), or literally when I'm taking a shower/getting ready for the day. >>1020423>>1020425
I've moved about every 1.5 years for the past 5 years. Makes it hard to make new connections. I have old friends from school and old jobs that I'm in regular touch with but we dont live nearby.
I used to be into some creative things like bookbinding and papermaking before graduate school sucked my soul out. I would like to get back into with the supplies I already have (so as to avoid further consumption).>>1020451>>1020436
I'm not even 30 yet and I do feel ashamed. I'm truly trying to stop. Looking at threads like this helps me.

Jesus christ I found a room on instagram that’s nearly a carbon copy of this. How can they waste so much fucking money just to replicate some “aesthetic” weeb room they saw on tumblr, guarantee she doesn’t even like the shit she puts in her room, just buys it because she sees rooms online with that shit.
Consooming is one thing, if you actually have passionate interests whatever, buy as much manga and posters as you want, put when you have an entire collection of incomplete manga and random shit for the aesthetic, whats the fucking point?

She's been around since the 70s and they're almost always putting plushies of her in stores, kujis, claw machines, etc.
I presume they just stalk sanrio's twitter for updates a lot.
I use my old notebooks for journals and scrapbooks with random themes.
> one for new years reflections (I only write in it on New Years Eve/Day)> one is a scrapbook/journal for when I go traveling (I write my itinerary and stuff and paste in mementos)> one is scrapbook for pamphlets/visitors maps from places I visit. I started this as a way to reduce paper waste from all those visitors guides I got while keeping the memory> one for keeping notes about my craft projects> a tiny one is just my book list of future reads> another tiny one I use to organize my chores and when to do them
And the ugly ones, like dollar store school notebooks, I just use for scratch paper.
I have horrible working memory and need a million notes, but I hate taking notes on the phone and need all my thoughts overly organized.
>>1020445> Why not travel and assemble a pretty piece with your own memories?
I agree but also kind of understand. A lot of ticket stubs these days are pretty ugly if they even have printed tickets anymore, most people opt for digital nowadays. Then the printed ticket is just a QR code on a basic receipt. I guess it shouldn't matter since it's more about the memory but I didn't plan to make a QR scrapbook…
Also I don't think these people go anywhere to collect real ticket stubs anyway.

I'm almost done, nonas. I'm almost done selling all my mangas. I can taste the freedom of the finish line, and I never wanna consoom manga again.
I wanna say thank you to all the cool weebs that bought my shit. Made nice pocket money.
Nta but my aunt and uncle had a big fire in their livingroom thanks to a small candle they forgot to put out when they went to bed. I always used to think a small candle couldn't possibly be dangerous but somehow it can be.>>1021099>>1021105
You could diffuse essential oils (not perfume oils) if you don't have reservations about the production of EOs.
Ok just for context I began collecting manga when I was 10 (12 years ago) so I had a lot of incomplete sets but still valuable and out of print ones. Started collecting again when I was 18, so I had complete sets of out of print mangas that are still sought after. Also some one shots here and there. I think I've sold more than 40 volumes in a span of two weeks. Hit the jackpot because the underage weebs were full of christmas pocket money. I made 1.2k in my currency, about 950 bucks went into my wallet (the rest were taxes and shipping stuff).
When I made the listings, I checked Amazon and other secondhand websites to have a general idea of how much I could ask. I did not sell them with the intention of making a huge profit, because 1. fuck scalpers lol it's just books and 2. it's better to sell with a lower margin of profit than have it sitting unsold and collecting dust. I also offered a 15 to 20% discount if they wanted another set.
I used Shopee, no idea if it's available where you live.
Take some good pics showing the front, back, and color of the pages (no idea why but some people are REALLY anal about yellowing paper) and answer questions quickly. Hope I helped!>>1021543
Don't feel that way, nona. Books/comics are meant to be read and cherished, and you're absolutely right: it is pointless lol
I've never heard of shopee but apparently it's available in my country, so I'll keep that in mind. Honestly I think I sold way more books than you did but never got that much money from selling them because I sold these books to secondhand stores that would give me 1.5€ to 2€ per books, unless I agreed to be payed in coupons which is counterproductive in my case. As for Momox (it's a secondhand online) the prices really depended on what I sold and the demand. For example I got like 50 cents for the first volume of Quantum Devil Saga and I got nearly 40€ for the second volume. On top of that manga in my country have always been popular so people go to bookstore to buy them before looking online for secondhand copies. It's funny, what I kept is mostly older series that are out of print or that have new, better editions because I won't be able to sell these manga anyway but I genuinely can't find good scans for them either online.
I also bought a few manga on Vinted and what's called Leboncoin (basically craiglist but French) right after getting rid of a lot of books and some of the prices I've seen were just straight up insulting. Scalpers really are pieces of shit, if you want the regular 5 volumes of Paradise Kiss with yellow pages and slightly damaged covers be ready to spend between 80€ and 120€ on them. The series has been released recently in a all in one edition but the book's cover has a horrible quality and it's so thick it looks like a dictionary.
I made this much because my currency sucks kek I converted to euro and basically I made 150 euros but yeah selling them to secondhand stores sucks because a. you're not gonna get much money or b. you're not get much money AND they will sell for quadruple the price they paid you. Scalpers really think their books are made of gold lmao get off your high horse man it's just pieces of paper glued to each other after all>>1021593
Anon you're a genius I never thought about that! I prefer to sell sets because it's faster though but thanks for the tips

It isn’t consooming if you>have enough money to support yourself and buy the items>have enough space to keep the stuff you want to buy without turning them into clutter>Don’t just throw your old stuff away so you can donate them or resell them>Buy new things because you actually need them and not because they’re trendy on social media
Basically that, I don’t see what’s the big deal with changing your style every once in a while, as long as it isn’t monthly, it’s okay.

Where do these girls get all their money jfc.
I just keep expecting to see a goddamn spider crawl out from that mess, it must be a spider's playground.
How the hell would you even get the sucker without breaking shit??
As someone who changed their style after loss of a very close person to me, I have some advice.
Buy new articles of clothing slowly and keep most of your old stuff unless you have no space left in your closet. Changing your whole style in a short span isn't a good idea as you will mostly only buy similar styles of clothes and get bored of dressing like that after a while.
Try to buy 1-2 articles of clothing that you really love each time you go shopping so you dont buy stuff you dont like just to buy new things.
Also dont do a capsule wardrobe. Clothes are a way we express ourselves, especially as women as we have a wider variety of choices than men. Buy clothes that you love seeing yourself in instead of basics that make you invisible. Throwing out all of your stuff and buying a new capsule wardrobe isn't good for the environment either, don't throw away your perfectly fine clothes just to jump on the trend.

Sage for samefagging, now that I often work from home I'm considering getting some new furniture to have everything in order. I live with my family so I do everything in my room, and I have a desk, but ever since I finished studying I put my TV on this desk. I'm considering using the desk for my work laptop and getting a low table for my TV because it's a small one and I use it only for video games. On top of that I want a chair like pic related but they all seem very expensive for some reason, at the lowest they're a bit above 50€. Are they worth the price? Also, are there any anons that have those weird car seat looking gamer chairs? How are they?

Those arent worth that at all
Unless it has a solid L shape because the ones without a sort of brace to them will just…fall over for the back area if you lean against it. We had those for games as kids where the back could click to lay down except over time it wore down so I wouldnt even recommend that. Pic related is what I mean by a solid L shape. I have a gaming chair since 2017 or so instead of my old ikea one and for me my back doesnt feel any pain after 8-15 hours of sitting in it. Mine is a clutch XXL size because I wanted the seat large enough for crossing my legs in a pretzel or fuck all position. They go on clearance semi regularly so the normal price is a bit of a lie. It got me through having to practically lay down on it from surgery issues that hurt way too much to let my torso crease. Its downside is the underseat is an entire pain in the ass for cleaning out.

All of my family calls me a "minimalist" because I live in a really small apartment and just physically cannot store very much. I'm not a minimalist, I just have to think about where something will go before I buy it. For context, my kitchens' only cabinet can store 2 mugs, 2 cups, 2 plates, and 1 bowl, and that's all I have for dinnerware. The rest of my apartment is similarly limited and I don't even have a closet for clothes so I have to really manage what I own and purge things when new stuff comes in. So each year for Christmas I request for them to not get me anything (they NEVER do this, but I truly would love if there was one year no one got me anything) or if they must, get me "consumables", like lotion, soap, coffee, candy, etc. They've slowly started buying that I'm not just outright lying to them and I've been happy to receive more small items but honestly this year was insane.
I was handed a gift from a family member as she announced, "I know youre a minimalist so I got you something helpful." And she hands me pic related. It's a giant bagel slicer. I can't tell if shes joking initally, but I realize she isn't. I feel so bad… I think they only really use these in cafes where they need to cut 500 bagels in succession. It's heavy, it's made of plastic, and it's got a huge blade so I immediately know she didn't consider that I flew in and now I'll have to spend $30 to check my bag on the airplane. I feel like such an asshole but just, what is the thought process exactly? I've kept it for now just out of guilt and finally got some bagels to try to give it at least one use. It doesn't work at all. It's an as-seen-on-TV product that borders on being a gag-gift. It's got so much plastic on it I feel horrible for throwing it away, but it's also not even something I could give to someone. I just feel like no one takes more than a few moments to consider the apartment they all know I live in and what might be impractical for me. I put a lot of thought into other peoples gifts and try to be considerate. What do you girls usually do with gifts that you can't use or don't need?

I must attain this dress. I have spent hours looking at it on my phone. I am now dreaming of dresses and having half-forgotten visions of dresses completely unprompted before I sleep and sometimes in the middle of the day. I have never worn a dress in my life, but I have been consooming recently, and I feel an insatiable, intense, euphoria-laden desire to possess this dress. I almost feel manic with dresses. I can not stop consooming.

Does anybody remember the time on the youtube where the makeup community would glorify having needless amounts of makeup? It's still excessive compared to the normal woman who wears makeup, but at least there are now channels who are more critical of hoarding and the industry in general. People like that still exist because of reviews but this video is so wild. I also feel like people have moved onto hoarding skin care because it's easier to justify since you use most of it everyday and if you hate it, you can just use it on your body or something.

Most books are probably just shelved away after one or two reads, doubt most of them get much use at all.
How do you all feel about hiring/renting clothes (and for other goods/services such as a washing machine subscriptions)? I was reading just another article about it today, it seems like they're expecting the fashion for rental-industry to boom in 2022. This particular article I was reading about was fo babies up to 2 years or so, which makes perfect sense: they grow so quickly so it's a great, low-consuming way of dressing your child but I also feel like we're slowly being steered in the way of owning as little as possible to be as reliant on companies providing goods/services as possible (not just with clothes) in the name of "sustainability/low-consumering"
I considered it, but the cost did not justify the benefits of always having new clothes. I used to have a stupid fear of being judged for rewearing clothes too often (I like to wear them at least 2 times before they go into the wash if they haven't got any new stains on them), then I realized that fear was stupid as fuck and no one actually gives a shit unless they're weird consoomers who live off shein and fashionnova tier clothes to just have something to show off. There's a lady at my job who is subscribed to rent the runway, but I think it could be justified for her because she's a news anchor and needs a new outfit for when she appears on TV. I can't think of many other situations where it's necessary. Regular people do not need that new outfits all the time.
I do like the idea of not having more stuff in my apartment so I get the appeal of having new stuff without sacrificing space for it, but it's not worth the price for me. I feel like another dangerous thing about them is I think you can sometimes just keep or buy the clothes they sent you for a discount if you like it? It's the same as marketing emails, they show you shit you don't need and then of course you might think "oh this is really nice, and it fits me so well!" so you think you can't live without it and give them more money on top of the subscription you already pay just to keep it. Awful.
I really hate this "don't own anything!!!" mentality. I want to have my own stuff. Fuck communism.
Besides that, I don't think renting certain clothes is that bad, like gowns and fancy clothes or necklaces. There's also ethnic and special clothing you can rent in other countries (example, kimono, cosplay, lolita or maid clothes) that I'm sure some people will probably only use once so that's fine.
When it comes to stuff like Fashion Nova or other type of outrageous eye-catching clothes (could be high fashion too) I also imagine some rental business in the making, since most people rather have crazy Instagram pictures than have an interesting personality. I already know some private jet owners rent their seats for like half an hour or so to certain influencers to take pictures inside them… And they don't even fly anywhere. Lol. It's all for show.

Where tf do people even wear abominations like this? Work? School? The grocery store? The club? The only place I can picture it would be a Lolita con, but then you’re literally buying the outfit to fit in with a group.

>>1023940>but is there casual lolita?
Yes! You mostly see people wearing cardigans with skirts for it though.>Could you give an example of what you would wear to work?
Mostly this sort of thing.
I used to think like you. I thought Lolita was so ugly and off-putting, until I was converted online. There’s just something about taking feminine aesthetic tropes and cranking the volume up to 100 - that decadent excess is very attractive to me, and not in a conventionally pretty way, but in an aesthetically interesting way. It has what I call Feminine, But As A Repellant effect, this ugly visual forcefulness. And it’s very intensely physical, by the way, just look at the excess of petticoats and ruffles and layers, stacks on top of stacks on top stacks, growing into an ugly surplus of fabric made of little parts that are ugly together, but probably visually pleasant apart. That idea is really exciting to me. I also think it’s fun because it subverts those aesthetic tropes; instead of girlish and coy, it’s garish and imposing. Too bad I live in a shithole where I’d get heckled if I ever tried to wear shit like that and I’m too broke to spend my money on clothes anyway. That’s probably for the best, kek.

Is anyone else reading the kf food shortage panic thread? It's a pretty funny look into how whitebread & suburban most terminally online males are. When I first saw the headlines I thought it was something to be concerned about. Then I read a couple comments & it's all moids LARPing as if it's the end times because they're just now learning how to make their own hashbrowns. There's a hilarious dichotomy there between how they act like they're some kinda Mad Max shtf warrior, but then they tell on themselves as clueless city kids with no life skills.

I hope they're trolling. Now they're whinging that pre-mixed sports drinks are available in only one colour lmao. Only the one! These are all food-adjacent products covered in preservatives anyway. They should have never been internationally mass-produced in the first place. If you feel deprived because you have to eat locally produced food now like a normal person then good.

I grew up in poverty in Central Asia and this is legit the saddest thing I've read all afternoon. It makes me feel some type of way.
You know when you see a fat bogan with her obese toddler, and the toddler is screaming for some sugary cola drink and dessert in the middle of a fast food restaurant, and you look at the mother and see the sad look in her eyes as she gives in. She knows she's slowly killing little Timmy and so do you, but she just wants to see him happy and quiet, even though he's long due for a heart attack at the age of 4. It's kinda like that. That 'you poor child' feeling.

I fucking hate this trend of "breaking rooms". Like oh, you want to swing around a hammer and hit some stuff? Go work in construction you goddamn dingus. Go build a deck. Work on a farm for fucks sake. Hammer something that actually matters. That's like paying to go to an "office room" with a bunch of your friends where you can sit around in a cubicle and pretend you're crunching numbers. Like what is the fucking point. Are people really this sheltered from normal physical labour?
And also how is this a fun date idea? If the point of a breaking room is supposed to be to release your anger or something then I wouldn't want to be in there with anyone who's getting really into it. It doesn't sound very romantic watching a moid rage at inanimate objects.
Kek are you the same anon that hates fireworks?
Want a reward for being the mostest civilizest?
File: 1641979726266.gif (2.56 MB, 640x478, freak-out-kid.gif)
Not the same. I see the appeal of fireworks. I don't see the appeal of flailing around like a toddler or like the freakout kid.
I hate that this "bathing fsily is bad for u" thing is catching on bc it's literally a case by case basis. If you work from home and don't move around much during the day, and don't have oily skin or sweat very much then it's fine not to bathe daily- but some people do sweat, move around and even live in different climates. Those
people really should wash daily, but bc of the ppl who really don't pushing it as a universal norm now we have greasy, musty coomers everywhere making it a trend just to lower the bar for hygeine.
You do realize that there are thousands of jobs out there that involve physical labour that aren't construction, right? And that you are physically capable of doing regular maintenance around your own home? And that you're allowed to have physical hobbies? Just checking.
Let me spell out the analogy for you babe.>want to release some stress>brain says to do menial repetitive tasks in order to achieve zen>should I do something productive to quell this urge, like organizing notes or making a calendar?>No. Where's the nearest rent-an-office?? I want to pay $80/hr to edit fake spreadsheets that benefit no one because my lizard brain craves order, and I feel the need to pay for even the most minor experience
That's what you sound like when you talk about how gosh darn FUN it is to pay up the ass so you can touch a tool for the first time in your life.
Once again completely missing the point. I'm calling you retarded for PAYING to break shit, you retarded retard. You can literally just go outside and smash shit. You do not need to pay somebody else money to consoom hitting things. You just do it. Not everything needs to be a service and a "room".>I actually build furniture
Doubt. If you build & tear apart furniture then you would realize how terminally stupid it is to pay somebody to rent a room to do it in in. >>1024592
Now THIS. This is a stupid analogy.
nayrt and I've never even heard of this before, but this is just a hobby. Do you get mad when people go to the gym because they can work out at home or go for a run for free instead?
It's not really consumerism anyway. They aren't accumulating anything, or creating waste. Even if it's dumb its harmless.>>998509
>>1024603>What's the point in going to a restaurant when you can just cook your own food?
You act like this is something I disagree with. This is the consoomer thread.
>Some people live in apartments downtown
And those people are dumbass consoomers. Cities the size that we have now should not exist. The people that live in them have obvious issues from the lack of community & sheltered lifestyle. People who live in apartments downtown their whole lives are stunted and ignorant to the work that goes into keeping the lights on in their rat cages. Megacities are one of the main root causes for ALL of the things that have been discussed ITT. You think an Alaskan fisherwoman is collecting Funko Pops?
>what are they supposed to smash?
Nothing. If you don't have things that could use breaking then you don't break things. You're acting like people are going to go into withdrawal if they don't get their monthly dose of smash time. This is why I called you a monkey. "But what will they smash?" lmao. You'll live.
>The analogy isn't stupid, it's exactly the same as yours.
Oh, so my analogy isn't stupid anymore then? Thanks!
>you calling me a "retarded retard" doesn't make your point any more convincing.

This made me think a little way too hard. At first I thought no, since they bought into a shitty idea and are now trapped to buy stock and shill it, but a lot of the ones I see posted online… live and breathe their products so yeah I guess it isn't really different than a menhera bitch collecting 400 my melody dolls because her entire personality is sanrio. Different side to the same coin, except MLM consoomers are sadder because they chase the dream of riches while regular consoomers actually believe they have achieved their dream of happiness amongst their piles of garbage.
NTAYRT & I agree with ALL of your post except this:
>>Do you get mad when people go to the gym because they can work out at home or go for a run for free instead?>YES. Absolutely. This is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Women. Running around in public isn't always safe, even if you live in a "safe" area, and not everyone can afford their own treadmill or may not have space for one if they can afford it.
Gyms =/= smash rooms though. The gym is a place where people can pay to use proper equipment to work out without having to buy their own equipment, but I'm with you that trying to justify going to a rented office & spending money to smash stuff as "stress relief" is coomer af. Can you only destress voilently? Instead try going to a gym, and lifting heavy shit, then putting it down again until you feel better (bc you will).
People who live in apartments are consoomers? Like it's their fault cities are a disease? I can't even take you seriously at this point, you sound nuts. Eating at a restaurant isn't consumerism, especially if it's a local restaurant. You should
be encouraging your local economy. The act of purchasing isn't consumerism in itself. You need to be 18+ to post here.

Literally everyone can do logistics. People who try to do logistics having never worked in the trade are terrible at their job. You seem like you feel very called out lol.
I feel like people who think like this have to be super sheltered or something. They have absolutely no sense of the size of the global population and how much more efficient large scale production/dense housing is. Hunting, DIY, and growing your own vegetables are cute ideas, but there's simply not enough resources for every person on the planet to live this way.
6 million deer can sustainably be harvested per year in the US - how is that supposed to feed a population of 332 million? India continues to suffer from massive food security problems because its agricultural sector is made up of small farmers with a very low production rate. People who live in rural areas produce huge per capita amounts of emissions because they drive everywhere and have everything they buy trucked massive distances, while NYC residents produce 30% less than the national average per person.
There's so much information to support the idea that homesteading is unsustainable/environmentally inferior to urban living, but people just ignore it so they can play little house on the prairie. Believing that your actions have no impact on the environment just because you're surrounded by nature is disturbingly childlike.
>>1024758>global population>there's simply not enough resources for every person on the planet>how is that supposed to feed a population of 332 million?
This. Is. Exactly. My. Point. You. Fucking. Retard.
Your solution is to just keep squishing an ever increasing population into less space, where their mental health goes to absolute shit. Your solution is to pack more & more people into communities where they don't even know their neighbour, much less their whole town. Do you realize how detrimental that shift has been to the human psyche? To transition from villages of tens of thousands where everyone knew each other, into unfathomably huge, sprawling metropolises. Where even the most important person is a brick in the wall that can be replaced tomorrow. Where hundreds die every day, and the vast majority of the city has no clue who they are. Where there are so many useless middlemen pushing paper that the concept of adding value to society is now completely divorced from the concept of work. Where everyone is depressed with low attention spans, chasing instant gratification & rotating addictions. Cities have been a cancer on the human mind.

majority of items, including just basic things needed for survival, are made out of plastic though. some of these things are unavoidable.
The Neo word processor doesn't support my language, so it's useless to me and expensive for what it is (100$ for an outdated piece of technology? Nah. And don't give me eBay screenshots, this is how much it costs with shipping and taxes). I love my Traveller, the e-ink screen is heaven to my eyes. It also makes Freewrite machines expensive since even mainstream ebook readers cost a penny and they aren't made by a tiny company (lower cost of parts). I was super lucky to get it for half price. I feel like it's unfair to ignore the superior screen, it really isn't the same as Alphasmart Neo. I think that one Freewrite machine is enough, though. Don't see owning 1 as a consoomer thing, collecting is a bit much unless you are hoping to resell it for 2x as much.
What deserves criticism is how the company deals with technical issues (they make you buy a warranty, wtf).
Samefag, I don't want to repost again>why cant he just buy a bluetooth keyboard for a tablet or his phone and get the same result?
Because that option is inconvenient and unpleasant to use (no way of connecting the keyboard to your smartphone, have to carry it with you everywhere, you write on the keyboard while looking at smartphone in a stand/leaning toward your mug. Tablets are a bit better if you can get a keyboard with a case. There is still an issue of screen that is tiring to look at and everything distracting you).
>>1024850> These things effect other people in your family, then community, then country, then the world.
This is really ignorant, wishful thinking. The fact that there are even anons here arguing against you should show that is it not that easy to get people to change, whether what you work towards is for the greater good or not. There are plenty of people out there who try do steer themselves away from mass consumering and try to discourage others, but clearly it's a small number of people and it will stay small because of social media/marketing brainwashing happening at every corner.
People will not leave cities, because cities are where the jobs are. Why do you think people willingly travel to NYC or LA to "make it big"? You don't have to force people into cities, people will always willingly follow where the money is.

Working class men are some of the biggest consoomers around. They like to disguise their hoarding by pretending it's utilitarian, but at the end of the day they're buying a ton of equipment and tools that will get one use and then gather dust for decades. They're also rabid brand fanboys, and will buy any flimsy piece of crap if "their brand" puts it out (that's why snap-on makes popcorn makers and toaster ovens).
It's been like this in every male-dominated hobby I've gotten into, whether it's armchair photographers amassing tens of thousands of dollars of lenses or aquarium guys masturbating over their favorite brand of water conditioner. It's annoying to see them constantly get a pass just because they're not amiibo hoarding soyboys.

People really spend this much money on this garbage? Bearbricks are Funko Pops levels of laziness. I had no idea they ran this much holy shit
My husband has thousands of dollars worth of premium tools. I would say that this is justified because he's an engineer. His job can be dangerous and a cheaply made tool failing could result in him being injured or even killed. There's still a definite consoom element to this though. Everything has has to be a certain brand so he can boast about is tool collection to other engineers.
Some of my friends have noticed the same with their husbands who are tradesmen. If they need a new hammer, "hammer that does the job" isn't good enough, it has to be "brand name hammer that does the job".
>>1025920>Believing make up is fun
Nonita, please. Unless you're doing scenic makeup, it's not "fun", it's something created by rich old men (such as the CEO of estee lauder and tarte) that tell you you're ugly so you buy their products. Of all the things, makeup is the worst.
Also, as long you don't take steaming hot showers that last 40mins on average, your makeup is fine in a plastic or glass case in a drawer, they have very little shelf live anyway.
I think you are right about it probably stinking, but with some candles and better lighting this looks pretty cosy. Not as bad as the other rooms.>>1025431
Your room is cute anon. imo it's a lot, but not excessive, but maybe consider getting a separate place to display your tea cups.

Base makeup is the easiest part of makeup imo. I am biased because i have acne scars to cover when i do bother to wear makeup. Fake it until you make it.

NTA. Most women aren't exactly creative with their make-up, they just do whatever makes them look good/presentable for the outside world according to current trends. It's fine to like make-up (as long as you don't go overboard), just please don't sperg how it's ~actually art~ (and probably suuuper feminist). That's some libfem shit. Just accept that liking make-up isn't conscious in any way, but you are human being and therefore not obliged to make the most ethical choices possible, all of the time.
I don't know much about makeup cuz I barely use it myself, but does expiration date matter all that much? If it does, then what's the point in buying big palettes if it will just expire in a year? It's not toxic
or anything right?
the absolute vast majority of women totally isn't buying make-up to look more attractive, right?!>>1026159
Ime not really. I mean make-up does expire but not right on the mark of the printed date. I use expired make-up as long as the texture/consistency and smell remain regular.
>>1026187>the absolute vast majority of women
You're assuming a lot
with that one
If you're aware of the downfalls of the beauty industry, societal impact of makeup, don't depend on it, don't let it turn into hoarding, how is it harmful? I'm talking on an individual, micro level because that's how this argument started. Yes, on the whole it's harmful and has been used against women for centuries literally who is denying this? >>1026253
I mean, I move in alt circles and know some dudes who do. But again, not everyone uses it as a crutch or hates putting it on. All I said is that it can be fun under certain conditions. I hate to repeat myself but I'm not denying that the vast majority of women do it out of insecurity, pressure and social expectations. But some of us like smearing shiny paint on our faces for the fun of it.>>1026257
Powders are fine, you can sprits them with alcohol occasionally. Creams, liquids, mascaras and pencils should be checked regularly. If it smells, changes color or consistency throw it away.

Valentine's day is consoomer as fuck and on top of that it's the only day some scrotes even half-assed treat their women, and the women swoon over this.
Men should pay your rent and fix your car, but the modern male will get you a CVS teddy bear and other landfill waste then whine on reddit about how they want flowers too.
Valentines day is pointless, but get me discounted chocolate. Flowers are such a waste and I don't know why that's still a tradition. Spend $50 on something that rots within a week? No thanks.
Edible things are the least consoomer because at least they don't take up space.
Tbh I do like a valentines day teddy.. but the ones stores sell for the occasion are usually trash.
In the past I've told exes about plushes I've been eying up for ages. Its better than them picking out a random 4 foot tall love heart wielding tattered looking thing.

The average girl who claims to use makeup as an artistic outlet or self expression does shit like this every goddamn day.
This is the anticonsoom thread and you can't argue how about makeup companies pump out the same shit over and over, like palettes with only a slight hue difference, to collect money from telling women they're ugly. Why it's never aimed and advertised for men? Why I don't see "artistic" shit everytime I go out?
Aside from being a feminist problem, it's consoomeristic as fuck. "Hey, nona!! Buy this Winter Collection with muted tones, then the summer collection with neon colors and then Holiday collections with sparkly textures!!!"
People like Jeffree Star, Nikkie, James Charles and other wastes of human breath live off for that. Buy their shit. If you fail to see the consoom, I advise you to remove all of that mascara.
semi ot the current style of eyebrows is so hideous and it sucks for women who don't have arched brows

korean makeup has the right idea with the softer makeup and less exaggerated brows, even if I can't stand how surgerized their society is. their stuff works a lot better for women with round faces
it really is sad to see women removing their natural baby fat from their face only for them to look like gaunt skeletons five years later. buccal fat removal is disgusting
Mnogo true, I noticed Western makeup covers a woman’s face instead of enhancing, whilst making it look angular and unnatural. Also, why do I see women in the west trying to look orange instead of enjoying pale skin? Or bleaching their hair to leave dark roots that looks tacky, instead of getting subtle highlights?
Korean makeup styles at least seems light, accentuating femininity and looking more modest and tasteful. And their fashion is better too, more feminine and subtle, even the hair styles are cute and natural looking.
I do prefer western media (pre 2015) and literature, western music and western architecture, so DO NOT call me a koreaboo just for prefering k fashion kek
Imo, subtle makeup is more harmful. It poses more rules on the wearer, it's deceptively natural but requires a ton of products, moids can't detect it and think someone is just naturally like that and then shame women for not looking perfect 24/7…>>1026461>modest, tasteful, feminine, subtle, pale
You sound like a trad wife nona, no offence.
When I see a woman with clothes that accentuate her gentleness, her feminine figure, without showing too much, it’s like seeing art. Feminine women make me feel protective and gentle, and I think a lot of women who wear heavy makeup and strange clothes are going for femininity, but the wrong way. Plus, pale girls rarely look good with a heavy tan. Tan girls can look weird with lightened skin. I think it usually looks off when someone tries to look like something they’re not.
A woman has every right not to be feminine, I mean I feel more comfortable in baggy and muted clothes, but I just really appreciate a feminine woman. Sage for gay tradthot autism.
Its because most girls have been throwing clean and clear and drying ass acne shit on their face since they were 10 yrs old, which Johnson and Johnson owns whom are notoriously always making shitty products that give people cancer and shit.
Western skincare is getting better though since companies are starting to realize you don't need 50 different ingredients that you can't pronounce, and companies are actually making foundation that doesn't make pale women look like a freaking ommpa loompa after 15 minutes of oxygenation

I see this shit on my youtube homepage every day and it makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Both sides look bad! Why are you drawing your bottom lash line way tf away from your real eye? Now there's this giant, freaky-looking gap of skin between. And the blurred-out top lip just looks retarded. When did it become 'uncool' to have a cupid's bow?

Once a month I buy packs in gacha games, I guess that's peak consooming for its sheer uselessness. Pic related is my main game Starlight Stage but I also play the other im@s games and enstars and arknights and granblue etc. etc. It doesn't impact my life, I have a job and a bf and my own apartment.
>why the fuck do you spend money on jpegs nonnie
Short answer: I enjoy it. Shiny sparkly make brain go ooga booga.
I come from a war torn ex-commie country, grew up poor and was taught that I don't need anything in life aside the bare necessities. Now that I have money and increased my quality of life significantly, it gives me immense satisfaction to buy something that's purely for my own entertainment. I also often get fancier stuff for my mom that she couldn't get for herself. Oh yeah and I get an extra kick out of gambling because I studied probability in uni and did a work on how to manipulate people in casinos with math, so it's a twisted satisfaction, think of that episode of Brooklyn 99 with Holt playing poker.

It’s ok, nonnie
I buy a welkan moon once a month in Genshin. Just as long as we’re not tempted to buy more in-game currency beyond that we should be ok. I’ll probably be free to play soon once I move out of the country but that’s fine.

AYRT finally someone who understands! You explained it better than I could. "Natural" makeup is literally just focused on covering up perceived flaws and correcting features and that's evil.
buying JPEGS got worst with NFT bros. You seem sane, unlike them

You do realize that there are different types of femininity right? Gentle uwu soft girls are just as feminine as vamp femme fatales, the latter (picrelated) may look not as cute, vulnerable and in need of protection as the former do, but they still look feminine.
The brands themselves are usually fine outside of American makeup like foundation, concealer, powder, etc. Most people are just referring to the style of makeup. I only use Korean stuff if I'm using foundation since it actually covers imperfections instead of emphasizing zits. Also it doesn't get orange 15 minutes after applied
Imo mascara, eyeshadow, lip gloss, etc are the extremely similar regardless of brand.
When you're a woman there's no wrong way to be feminine.>>1027293
Get your head checked.
, plastic goods and plushies seem like a hassle, and you can enjoy manga and artbooks in high res digitally (through pirating and amazon jp). I recently even found a cheap company that does hardcore cover printing so you can dodge shipping and taxes from Japan by buying artbooks digitally. I personally imported some animator doujinshi while comiket was still a thing and own one shelf of figures and plushies, but I have 2 cats so I need them out of reach behind some glass.
What other anime merch do people even collect?

I really like anime figures but I think they only look good when they are displayed nicely and aren't super cluttered like pic related. There's literally figures behind figures in this pic, like what even is the point. And this is only a fraction of this person's collection by the way.

I would definitely not buy manga now compared to how cheap it was ten years ago. My collection was really big because I bought a lot when Borders went bankrupt and I would find a lot of manga for $1-2 at a local used book store. It’s kind of wild comparing the sales from 2017-18 to 21-22 because of how much people are paying now. I wish I could understand why they would even want to spend $75 on a volume of manga - the $3 and $10 books are old sales from the same series.

Not a fan of the shelves (nor the LOVE letters on top eeessshhh…) but I like the way the figures are displayed here.

No, this isnt the same room.
How the fuck do zoomers have money to search for shit on pinterest and copy it exactly???
are these from the same person just in a different room or am I retarded?
I will always be proud to have way more personality than these people, copying a room from pinterest? really?? i get using some pics as inspiration but this is almost literally the same

congratulations for being allowed to waste your money on useless shit that isn't even physical? Gambling and virtual cards kek, and you think this is winning?
I understand buying a few physical things and enjoying them, but you're gambling and twisting it that you're a math genius so can "manipulate the casinos" like they don't have safeguarding for exactly that kek
Anyway nice LARP, you're retarded. As other anons said, you're no better than a scrote with their little nfts. The poverty porn story doesn't matter in this context.

I don't get the comment section, these women are from nations with massive wealth disparities, what little they give to charity for social clout is peanuts to the amount of wealth they actually possess
I don't get how them buying expensive bags made in Europe(that they will ever wear once) for basically societal clout is somehow more progressive then some western millionaire buying multiple porches
Not everyone wants to be a gross hoarder nonny
. Some of us even care about the environment.

When Nietzsche stated that "God is dead and we have killed him" he wasn't saying it triumph, he was echoing what had already been figured out at that point, that the enlightenment basically killed any possibility of God existing
Nietzsche knew that once people didn't believe in religion anymore they would sink into hedonism/consumerism to cope with a lack of defined ideal. People react more to desire rather than reason (he also gave his vision of a modern man learning and creating art for the sake of it for a new morale baseline).
Without religion the west sunk into ideas about radical ideologies, Nationalism, Communism and Monarchism
during WW2 and the Cold war America destroyed these ideals and established the neo-liberal world order
This is why we are the way we are right now, the global system established in the past half century is meant to produce defective human beings who can only consume
