Talk about consumerism, criticize consumerism, talk about niche and fandom specific consumerism, talk about consoom tendencies, collections, hoards and addiction. If you are a consoomer yourself feel free to talk about it in this thread, same with people who are now reformed consoomers. And if you did get over it, tell us why or how it happened.

Imagine fixing yourself to a soon-to-be-dated generation, or associating with any zeitgeisty media, or taking part in group identification. Could never me! I’m unstuck in time, unhinged along its axes, dizzy and swarming with hereness and un-hereness, nowness and un-nowness. I never suffer its passage, because it does not exist for me; Time is not linear, it’s a stack folding on itself in parallel frenzy, and then giving out in dough-soft yieldedness, to cease to mean now, and only mean here. No more time, no more generations

I don't entirely really agree. It's near impossible to be perfectly sustainable. You can stand up for sustainability and still admit; hey there's some things I can't be perfect at. Not to mention that word would never get out if people who stand up for sustainability weren't allowed to use technology because technology is inherently unsustainable. I would've never tried to be somewhat more concious of what I consume if I hadn't come across zero waste and minimalist videos on youtube. As been said before, we need many people practicing sustainability to their ability, not a small group doing it without fault.
>people who bitch about NFTs but consume shit from AliExpress… Kek
Hard agree with this tho

I recently bought a tamagotchi for the nostalgia, and it made me think about this thread. I don't understand virtual pet collectors, how do you keep up with them all? I feel sad for the pets. Yeah I'm the kind of person who ascribes feelings to pixels, but isn't that kind of the point of virtual pets?
I have a collection of around ~20 tamagotchis and I've been collecting since childhood (both eng and jpn) and when I have time I run them on a rotation, usually 2 at a time. To be fair a lot
of them are genuinely collectors items because they're old and increasing in rarity/price by the day. If you like tamagotchi, getting rid of one from the mid 2000s is a bad idea let alone one from the 90s. I think it's different from having a million retarded squishmallows since tamagotchis can connect with each other and there's so many different shells and characters

This reminded me of the Webkinz obsession in the 2000s and how people collected so many of them. I was a spoiled kid and had 15-20 Webkinz and when I think back on it I feel guilty that my parents spent so much on that (each one was $10 so for 15 it would have been $150). If I had a kid and Webkinz were still popular I would only get them like 5 at the maximum and spread out between holidays and birthdays.

I sold like 6 old games for 40€ today and the guy who owns the shop confirmed that I have like 250€ worth of coupon in total for the whole shop after spending the last two years decluttering (and that's after I spent 50€ worth of coupons on a game I've ordered last week), I guess I won't have to spend money on games for the next few years.

I used to consoom Pokemon Go a lot, spending money on in-game coins so I can expand my Pokemon inventory and buy Raid Passes for the chance to catch Legendary Pokemon. Even bought a bluetooth autocatcher that cost 50 bucks so I didn't even have to switch on my phone screen.
The amount of time and money I wasted trying to find fake pixel animals makes me want to cry. I think I latched on to it because anyone can have it on their phone, my workplace is right in the middle of a major city with a ton of gyms, stops and spawn points, and it was also the only thing my poor overworked wageslave brain could play on the commute. Even spent some of my weekends at parks trying to hunt Pokemon with perfect stats or shinies. Only after the pandemic hit and I couldn't leave home that I realized that mindlessly walking around with my face in my phone wasn't that fun after all. Maybe I just wanted to have the strongest or the shiniest Pokemon to show off to my friends who lived out in the sticks and were still at level 17 while I was level 43.
Even then I didn't even have a fraction of the commitment some of the people I saw at some raids did. I'd see people tapping away at two, three or even up to eight phones - they'd be wearing one of those grocery store sampling trays, phones splayed out in front of them, each having their own autocatcher. Then they'd pile in a car and drive off to the next raid. Maybe that was why I kept playing for so long, in my head I thought, well at least I'm not like those people, I'm being sensible and getting exercise. But nah, now I really wish I spent that time learning something actually useful.
Every once in a while I open up the app and idly think of selling my account to recoup some of the costs. Maybe if I can get a few hundred bucks back it might be worth it.

nta but i used to be addicted to sb69 and wasted between 300 and 500 euros on it. i was also unemployed at the time which makes it even more stupid. i still regret it. after that i never spent money on gacha games again because i knew i only needed to hit that buy button once to fall into that trap again.

I've been playing it since day one and somehow still play it daily. For me it's handy because I have to buy 20 euros worth of phone credit every month in order to get a 'free texts and internet' deal so I use that spare 20 euros to buy stuff in the game. I otherwise don't know what I'd spend that credit on so it's like free money to me. I've rarely gone over that allowance.
I moved from a city to a rural area in the middle of playing and yeah it doesn't work out great here. I leave pokemon in gyms and they just sit there forever. Kick me out already, I want the coins lol. On the odd occasion where I travel to bigger towns I don't like having my head stuck in my phone so I don't even take advantage when I travel.
Basically I refuse to spend 'real money' on it and I refuse to travel somewhere cool only to then stare into my phone. It's a alright way to pass the time but not worth investing too much in.

This game was actually good until, weirdly enough, COVID hit and after a huge success it turned into nothing but a fortnite-tier game with pay to win - all of these Ed Sheeran and co. collabs no one needs, battle passes, and such. There's no point in walking, let alone playing this game for about two years now. They kept saying how x legendaries will be time-limited one-time-only raids because of which you'd have to drive for half of an hour to find a raid location (back then), and now you can do all of this shit without raiding at all - just buy a 'bonus box' that contains everything you need. Soulless game. I only see consoomerfags and normies that never got to play it before play it.
On top of that, they never, NEVER fix their shitty bugs. There are still glitches and bugs that are from 3 years ago that they never bothered taking care of. It's not worth playing it.
File: 1643229154859.jpeg (8.34 KB, 210x240, download.jpeg)
Nta but at the time I started playing I was a newly recovering agoraphobic and using the game as some sort of autists motivation to go walk places. Worked. This was back when the store didn't sell many shortcuts or special boxes.
There's something fucky about buying things to now play at home. It's already an outdoor game so the risk of covid seemed like a convenient excuse to just push more in game purchases. Just sit at home with incense on community days… set off your 3 fucking hour long incense and wait around while say in one spot, fun lol! IMO people are lazy about the walking aspect and willing to pay up to skip it. They're cashing in on that which I guess is fair but it's not how I want to play.

Am I the only one triggered by the peak cosoomerism that is cosplaying? If you can't sew you're buying premade costumes, wigs, wearing them a few times, or in some cases once if you're one of those people who always plans for new costumes. If you're a regular con goer, that can mean 3+ cosplays per con. Not to mention makeup or contacts which you need to replace regularly.
If you're crafting, it's even worse. Buying a bunch of different materials and tools, some that you may use just once in order to make one small detail on a costume. Unless you plan to resell your cosplays right away, it adds up, on top of going to cons in general and buying merch there. I have done less than 10 cosplays in my life but the consoom for those alone was enough for me to stop and never look back.

Modern cosplay is peak consoomerism. People just hop on uwowo, buy, wear, then sell or throw it away (literally, sometimes)
I also feel that flawed cosplay, sometimes, have more earth and "love" to it. Shit like picrel makes me sad because wow, you just commissioned someone, or an underpaid chinese worker, to make the outfit for you and you ended up looking like a default patreon thot. Gross. The first pic is cute and comfy.
Left>Put together an easy and cute costume with the girls, have a fun time at the convention, no worries
Right>Purchase an expensive costume for a wide intenet audience, pose meticulously, dedicated photographer and Photoshop, get involved in an annoying online "community", constantly worrying about the next con and doing "better"
Using her is a bad example anon, she(and her husband/boyfriend wtv) have been making her own cosplays. Otherwise, your point is very uwu valid
Two years playing before COVID hit and I might have spent a few hundred dollars with all the raid passes, ticketed events, transport costs, battery pack, autocatcher, all that. My emails are full of receipts of $0.99 purchases of 100 PokeCoins, i.e. the cost of one Raid Pass. During raid days of popular Pokemon like Mewtwo or Rayquaza, I'd keep buying Passes one raid after another thinking the next one I'll catch will be shiny or have perfect stats…>>1042606
I don't think I would feel differently, honestly. The game itself is a huge timesink if you went out of your way to minmax it. I think my approach with the game shot past what would have been considered fun into really unhealthy territory - I'd go on websites which actually show you what Pokemon encounters you can get at certain stops, then after work I'd eat some takeout and spend an hour or two walking all over town trying to catch some of the rarer Pokemon instead of going home, having a proper home-cooked meal and getting a good rest. I've spent thousands of hours in some videogames and thought all the fun was worth it but for Pokemon Go I really wish I could take all that time back.

What does this thread think of collecting knick-knacks and antiques? I recently got my own place and couldn't stand the idea of filling it up with target and kmart crap, so I started checking out antique dealers and thrift shops to find good furniture for cheap. The big pieces like couches and tables tend to be overpriced, but I've found the most amazing little trinkets while browsing in there. It's only been a month and I've already got a steady collection going, including but not limited to two little ceramic polar bears, a cat statue I'm using as a ringholder, and a set of S&P shakers shaped like snails.
I used have consoomer tendencies and this is giving me the same rush as an amazon package arriving but for different reasons. Every find feels like a victory because I actually have to go looking and put in effort to find something I like, and it feels like I'm really curating my decor. Since they're all second-hand they cost almost nothing but don't feel like (completely) worthless crap. Plus they're already here, so I don't feel guilty about my money going to junk factories in China, and most of the shops I go to are either small businesses or charities.
Would highly reccomend to any nonas struggling with consoomerism and fighting/recovering from the urge to decorate their rooms with useless crap. It's also a neat way to socialise, the shopkeepers are usually older women or retirees and sometimes I'm the only person they've seen all day, so they're alway eager to chat.

I get that safety is a big deal but this bitch keeps popping up in my fyp on insta. She basically assembles keychain from aliexpress items and sells them for 50 fkn usd and makes a living out of it. Do you really need a big ass pompom to feel safe? OFC these things are targeted towards rich yass queens, who most likely live in nice blocks, ride nice cars, have nice security measures, not to poor people who, you know, need to protect themselves like in the hood. Anyway, pink markble or blue butterflies doesnt matter, since the blood of someone will permanently stain them.

Playing card consoomerism is a new one I just discovered. I think it’s cool to get a few fancy artistic decks if you’re into that but this is overboard. I bet they don’t even play with most of them because they might rip or be ruined by oils in the fingers.
If this person cared at all about their records they'd be in plastic sleeves. Why spend so much (or so little, these might be all dollar bin yard sale grandma musicals lol) and then not care for your investment?
I bet they don't have any 8tracks for that Weltron either
So you can feel rawr badass while being girly uwu
Anyway, if they actually had the chance to use it, the pompom would get in the way. Not safe at all

The groundwork is already there with the Gamepass giving everyone access to all their games for no extra cost.
I think it will be a nightmare to make it actually work but if I was a Microsoft executive, this is how I'd try to sell it.

Seeing all the images of cluttered hoards makes me really glad I started selling off my collection. Used to have 70+ Monster High dolls and I whittled it down to 15. It's satisfying to realize I don't need or miss anything I sold off.
To anyone struggling with an oversized collection of your own: it's not an all or nothing scenario. And you don't have to get rid of it all at once. Find the stuff you absolutely adore and make that the standard across the rest of it. Anything that doesn't elicit a similar feeling can go.

I had a bunch of vintage MLP hand me downs that I sold to a similar aged collector a while back. It felt like a drug deal bc I brought them in a plastic bag and met her at Wal-Mart kek. I'm thinking of selling my LPS and Polly Pocket shit too if I can dig them out. I feel better if my stuff is making someone else happier than me hoarding them in a dusty closet

Selling the stuff you feel less attached to can start a snowball effect and make you recognize you don't care about the stuff collecting dust on shelves or in boxes. And once the money starts appearing in your account, it's like you're being rewarded for getting rid of your crap, so it's a win-win.
So much shit with collecting is stupid. Getting involved with any online collecting community aka the worst enablers sets you up for practically throwing your money into the garbage. Limited editions! Alternative color releases! Buy two of the same thing to keep one in box and display the other! Look how much money I've wasted, fellow hoarders! I love X, look at how much I own of X!
The good thing about waking up from consooming like this is you can usually sell off your stuff and at least make back some of your money, maybe more if your hobby has the demand for it. Really proves the Funko hoarders are bottom of the barrel stupid since those things aren't worth shit. >>1049537
Kek good for you. I'll admit to feeling the same way about the things I sell.

I never, EVER, understood the appeal of youtube/idol merch.
Let me say this: I was a teen too. I used to follow a group in my teen years and I remember going crazy over it, I used to collect cut outs and posters but one day my mom (poor thing lol) got me a shirt with the face of the group members and I was SOOO ashamed. I wore it once or twice at best, then shoved it into the back of my closet. Listen, I love me some good design choice, maybe a design that can be taken separately from the artist (my current fav group has a moon as a logo and I would buy that because then only people who know it would recognize it plus is just a moon, nice.) but people's faces, random unfunny quotes, random slangs…they cost a lot and then they get donated because people grow out of it in a few months….
So wasteful, even worse than fast fashion

yeah I can see how it can be cringe, I only own one piece of merch and it is picrel, I do it because everyday I dream about meeting another Lingua Ignota fan irl kek. I think merch is ok if it is something a bit more obscure or precious to you, like you said. I never saw anyone with a youtuber t-shirt in my life though, what kind of people buy them I wonder ?

You know, after losing weight and thus having to re-do my wardrobe, Vinted saved my life. Cheap, once worn, nice clothing. Doesn't really help that I'm still losing weight but oh well.
I love Vinted but obviously the yas queens gen x found it and now they're treating it at some sort of mlm scam.
When I log on, I always find follow requests and notifications and I get that following someone is a thing, especially when they have your same size so you can keep updated but dropping in my dms telling me to buy from you? Nah son. It's not a race. I always find people claiming to "OMG, I sold 300 items!!" when they're circlejerking and buying from each other. You have no idea how many times I logged in to to find a new pair of jeans and being welcomed by a message of some rando saying "Hey baby, I have 50% off today!" or "Hey hun, today I've got these jeans!" because if you sell, Vinted most likely puts your stuff up in the feed.
Leave me alone, there's already depop for scamming people. I wish social media were more aggressive towards spam. Also, I've found some MLMs fucking products there, claiming to be "beauty packages". Sick.

I bought an eyeshadow palette on Vinted, back when it was Kleiderkreisel. I do not do my makeup very often and I can't justify dropping 50$ on some pressed pigments. Besides, eyeshadows can be disinfected with alcohol.

I remember pointing out how weirdly pornofied these candles were and some scrote was like "some women are actually blessed enough to be built like that" what, minus a fucking ribcage?
I would absolutely buy candles with bodies like picrel and not whatever weird photoshopped shit the creator of the other candles used as a reference
I think you are onto something kek >>1057522
"anatomy candles" the waist is the same size as the fucking thighs but you're right tbh
I agree with >>1057527
, it could be cool as a greek statue candle, but ofc they had to make it look like a failed coomer MOBA game character.
>>1057549>some women are actually blessed enough to be built like that
Maybe a very curvy chubby woman could have a similar body, like one in those prosperity goddess trinkets, with a much wider waist and much less pornification but the same scrote would probably hate on chubby women so…>>1057551>>1057550
Thank you anons for making me feel better, lol. I think nudity in art can be appreciated but female form is so sexualized and pornified nowadays anything is just made to appeal to the male gaze.
Yeah, that's what I mean. Even in some places where women do have narrow waists and a very very slim yet curvy figure they still look real and like they actually have a ribcage compared to this shit.
Like you said that's not good enough for scrotes though. Even when they do have 'ideal' bodies I've still seen men make comments about how her boobs would sag or how she'd have big calves or a belly pouch etc…we can't win!

I talked about this in one of the previous threads but I think the majority demographics of certain consoomer sub-culture to be interesting
>Disney(overall as a brand) consoomers tend to mostly women of various age ranges and ethnicities
>Star Wars consoomers are males 35+ and mostly white, the only substantial females are the Reylo shippers(who now have also branched into stanning Hayden Christensen)
>MCU is rare mixed bag which appeals to pretty much to various groups at once depending on the exact film/series
>Pokemon is also interesting, the anime seems to attract women and sane with with the games however the hardcore/professional Pokémon players will be male(likely autistic) and the casual players women and girls
>sneakerheads, age range also varies, mostly black males but also quite a high number of asians as well
any there any other consoomer majority demographics you all can think off that I may have missed

Moids feel some kind of empowerment when women leave and they start to gatekeep ship, as if anyone wants to do anything with them. Then, when they see no attention, they start to crawl into our spaces, because they're immature and insecure as fuck, we get pissed, we leave and the circle repeats. They can't enjoy anything, they just want to control, their existence is a pity.

(They take a 20% commission on every sale but good for selling various articles of clothing)https://www.depop.com/
(for trendy y2k clothes that zoomers eat up, they encourage you to take "aesthetically pleasing pics")
Facebook Marketplace: Only good if you're keeping this local and don't want to pay shipping. (Be very careful doing this. I made the the mistake of agreeing to meet at someone's hoarder nightmare house kek)

had a ton of LPS, sitting in my closet, so I sold them to an older woman. A few months later my appartment caught on fire. At least I got a profit out of them before it was too late
Small Businesses are peak consoomerism. People don't buy it for the actual need of the items, they buy stuff deluding themselves into supporting people who can't get a normal job.
Almost everything in these small businesses is not necessary and unoriginal. People are out there shitting on Etsy shop that dropship but aren't these the same fucking thing? They buy aliexpress shit in a bulk and then resell.
Goes bad after a month, is expensive and pollutes
You can make your own for basically free.
Do these people actually have a health and danger certificate? (eng is not my main lang so bear with me) DO they list the ingredients? All I saw was people buying clear formula and then putting glitter in it and labelling them as "Anime Inspired" lmao what the hell
Go to a local shop, it's prettier, maybe a bit more expensive, but in the long run it would cost less than paying a random girl who buys from aliexpress shipping and stuff.
Those things do not protect at all. They're cluttered, so you have to pray you don't get attacked, before you can access the pepper spray under the pompon, cute charms and such.
I have yet to see something different than anime pastel shit or flowery shit. Plus, plastic. Again.
Tiktok really ruined zoomers, pop culture and the planet.
Not to mention the crystals are usually fakes, and the plastic shit is usually super toxic
and carcinogenic. Did ppl just conveniently forget that plastic that's cheap is toxic
i agree but these small-business sellers dont buy their crystals from aliexpress because its too expensive to bulk buy (and they are starting to avoid alibaba too) so they are starting to buy from even more sus and low-quality sources.
There are genuine crystals on aliexpress, the actual scam is not the crystal but your order never arriving, getting a smaller quantity than you payed for, getting a different crystal etc etc.
I say this as someone who used aliexpress to buy cheap shit.

I have got into doll collecting recently and it's making me anxious. I'm collecting Rainbow High, which kind of makes me want to get every doll so I have the whole rainbow uguuu. But I really do not want to let it get to a point of picrel. I have already decided I will only get "main series" dolls to keep it somewhat under control. But I do think I should just sell them all because this is fucking insane.
I also have a shitload of art supplies for customizing the dolls, a HUGE dollhouse etc. I love the crafting but it does make me feel bad for being such a fucking consoooomer tool

Another torture pic
You're good, doll/toy collecting is fun and if you enjoy it then go for it. If you're into customizing them it even adds a creative outlet which is always a good thing! Money are for spending, I promise you're not gonna sit there at 88 years old and be happy that you have a big ass pile of money you never used.
I also don't like it when collections are too cluttered so I've decided to not have complete collections of anything and only get the pieces I really like. If they're from the same series it will still look cohesive but let the individual pieces stand out more.
Kek, me too. I laugh at the funko pop guys, and then remember my collection and start sweating.>>1066200

I did this but specifically for clothing! It felt very fulfilling to complete, and has helped me reset my priorities when it comes to clothing. I used to feel like I didn't have enough clothes, especially work clothes, and was hyper aware of what people wore because I was worried about being judged for rewearing clothes a lot. I had to put a lot of my clothes away in a storage unit for 10+ months because of a bedbug infestation (don't ask why it was for so long, also I still don't have a chunk of my wardrobe back) so I was limited to a total of about ~15-20 clothing pieces including tops, bottoms, dresses etc. And no one cared! No one cared at all!
I have a habit of "saving" nice clothes for only nice occasions, but now I'm trying to wear them more. Every day is a nice occasion. I bought this dress, I'm going to wear it.
I've also become very
picky about the clothes I buy. During my no-buy year, I would only occasionally window shop or browse online to limit the temptations, but after a while I found that I didn't really like a lot of the clothes. Certainly not enough to break my no-buy streak! There were very, very few pieces that I almost bought, but now I can't even remember them. Maybe the latest fashion trends just aren't to my taste, but a lot of stuff is very mediocre. Going forward I intend to wear my clothing to shreds, try buying natural fiber clothing as much as I can, making my own clothing, and and shopping only from small/handmade businesses. I know this last bit means shelling out at least a 6 month clothing supply from shein for a single piece of clothing, but I only want things that are well made and I intend to only buy clothes once or twice every few months.
I buy multiples of the same item too especially since my wardrobe is basic and I wear the hell out of them.
I regret not stocking up a few months back because my favorite clothing brand switched manufacturers from one country to another and apparently the deterioration in quality is noticeable.
It just hurts their skin in the long run, which makes them buy more products to fix the problem and the cycle repeats.
A good thing to know is that your body is very reactive. If you strip your skin of the good natural oils it will react by going into an overproduction of oil to replace it all to make sure it will have surplus ready if it happens soon again, hence producing a lot more than it normally would. If you moisturize every day your body will notice that you already have a surplus and will react by stopping it's own production of it, leaving you dryer than usual. In both cases you mess up the natural production for the worse. Your body is quicker to react than to go back to normal productions afterwards, but it does eventually go back to normal if you just stop using the products.
It's as simple as "if it ain't broke don't fix it". Get treatment for your cystic acne, of course. Moisturize your dry skin, when it is dry. If your skin is fairly neutral and just has a hormonal pimple now and then chances are that you don't need to exfoliate it and strip it of natural protective fats and oils and replace those with perfumed irritating skin care products every other day. Sleep + healthy eating will do far more good and cost way less.
Yes and No. In the short term (less than 6 months) tretinoin thins the skin. Past 6 months it thickens the skin. But you need to get your skin fully retinized. Lots of people are either not good candidates for it or are too skimpy with how often they use it so their skin never gets fully retinized and their skin is stuck in that stage where it is thinned and never get to the point where the tretinoin works to thicken it. If you keep up with longevity/aging research scene scientists are coming to think that aging doesn't necessarily happen at a steady, constant, gradual rate. So when people anecdotally say that they looked the same age for years and suddenly over the course of weeks or months, seemed to age years all at once, their experience is getting backed up by researchers in the field. I think this provides a confound, people start using tretinoin at the onset of this experience and attribute it to the tretinoin when they were already losing that facial fat due to natural aging.
With all that said though there are definitely anecdotes that give me pause and I've been trying to collect examples, it seems like there is a type of person where the tret definitely damages their skin and it can't be explained away by anything else. They tend to have really bad reactions to the tret in general and had sensitive skin to begin with and were often fair skinned as well. They react badly to the tret from the outset and the negative effects are visible within weeks. I think people with sensitive skin should stay away from it. If I had to hazard a guess I think the tretinoin causes inflammation that leads to apoptosis of the fat cells. Vitamin C serums, niacinamide cream, and perhaps EGF serums or topical hormones and botox would be safer. I think the sort of person to have a bad reaction to tretinoin would also have a bad reaction to laser facials and microneedling from what I've gathered.
I have had consoomer tendencies ever since I was little. Back then it was collecting toys, plushies, art supplies, just colorful stuff that was nice to display and look at. When I got older it morphed into what I tried to excuse as a necessary shopping but now I recognize was a consoom all along. Body care products, clothes, accessories, food - I currently have five different body creams because what if I run out suddenly? These boots I have are so comfy and go along with many of my outfits so well, I better go and buy another almost identical pair or better yet, two pairs. No I can't stand having only one coconut milk can in my pantry despite most recipes calling for only one can, I have to have several at all times. I tried to argue with myself it's okay because I will eventually use up all these things which I guess is true, but I'm done. Recent political happenings switched something in my brain and I lost all interest in buying excessive things. I already started throwing out some old stuff and want to go on a strict no-buy until at least the end of this year. I have everything I could possibly need for a simple frugal lifestyle.
Sorry for blogposting, but I feel like writing it down like this will hold me more accountable. I have a lot of unnecessary but sentimental crap that will be difficult to get rid of, even looking at it makes me uncomfortable because I don't want it to waste space anymore yet I will miss it so much when it's gone.

skincare is the perfect consoomer hobby. there is always a new product, new packaging, a fridge for your products, shelving for all your products, mirrors, lights, products to make your other products 'work better', and even if none of it works and your skin only gets worse, you can always blame it on the fact that you somehow did it wrong or your skin just didnt perform correctly so you should try a different product that claims to do something else. and they are all little jars of goop. it is endless. this is the future.

1.) How does her skin survive all of these products.
2.) You have to be on something to think some goofy ass comb with LED lights that makes buzzing noises will bring back any lost hair, or do anything at all except waste your money.
3.) THE BIO OIL ON THE FACE. THIS WOMAN IS INSANE.

there is a whole category of pov asmr skincare videos and they are incredibly weird
My mother used to buy skin care products obsessively, she has spent thousands of dollars on products that she uses maybe once or twice before deciding they don't work for her skin, and then she buys more of something else. I remember her bathroom used to just be overflowing with skincare and makeup. She used to spend over and hour in the bathroom just
washing her face and applying makeup. She doesn't even wear heavy makeup, no eyeliners or anything, just foundation and blush and maybe a mascara. But she had like a million washes, creams, oils, acids, toners, you fucking name it. She was also obsessed with tanning at one point and bought enough bronzer for the whole block.

At least the ASMR ones are trying to make soft sounds and not using their hands violently like >>1082133
. They look and sound like greedy monsters grabbing products with their claws.
This is nightmarish.
I'm european so I'm doomed to age like shit but I feel that getting your skin addicted to so much products is so unhealthy in the long run. I just scrub in alternate days, slap almond oil for my dry skin and I'm good, I don't wear makeup so I don't use any remover and I have only one small chin pimple on my period.
SKorea is the worst about this, parents out there gifting cosmetic surgery, shit's fucked
Seeing the filter distort every time she put her hands on her face and when she pulls of the mask is very funny to me. It isn't just face slimming either, it's smoothing her skin as well. That pimple on her forehead becomes a lot larger and a lot darker when the filter glitches. You can tell from the shelf behind her that she has got a fuck ton of product, maybe not as much as >>1082133
which is just a whole new extreme to me.
The brands aren't the same everywhere so I can't really recommend one but I have some tips. First, find a sunscreen with SPF 30 if your skin is white, no need to go higher. SPF 50 is a meme, there is almost no difference between the two beside the price. Second, a lotion is better than a spray, you don't want to breath it since some sunscreens contain nanoparticles. Finally buy a brand that you can trust, you don't want to end up wearing sunscreen for nothing.>>1084467
I got memed so much because my skin was a mess before. Now I only wash my face with cold water and from time to time with hot water and soap. Everyone think that I'm wearing a light foundation. I always massage a little bit of almond oil on my face before going to bed.

I've always liked to keep a clutter free home but I was in a relationship a few years ago where I ended up in the opposite. Financially I was better off living with him but I felt bored, empty and uphappy for most of the relationship. He would buy me small things all the time and initially I didn't think of it as anything more than a nice gesture but.. it never slowed down. Even when things turned bad.
Things kept going downhill, he wasn't very fair or emotionally mature in alot of ways but he'd bring me out for lunch, pay for more of our shared expenses and… was always buying me small shit and looking at me wantng to see my excitement. Night and day. Now I'm not a collector of things but I ended up with all this useless crap, toys, figures, there were funko pops at one point because they're an easy thoughtless gift to give to someone. All these figures and lil nik naks that I never would've bought for myself just accumulated in no time. We'd go to arcades and he'd win me multiple toys in one visit. It was too much of a good thing. I felt like I was being reimbursed for the youth I wasted on him (he was older) and the emotional chore of dealing with his anger issues. I would often think 'he doesn't act like he cares but then he spends all this money so he must?' I wrestled with mixed thoughts on what his motivation was when spending on me.
It was only towards the end that the hoard of arcade prizes and cheap plastic shit from gamestop really fucking bugged me. Waking up to it made me face the mess that was us. I felt like I couldn't downsize the collection because he bought it with his money.. it'd be rude and would likely cause an argument. I had long learnt to walk on eggshells with him. In the end I escaped the whole hoard and the guy. I know sometimes men love to rub 'I paid for x and y' in your face but tbh no amount of stuff makes up for an unhappy home life or the shit he did to you the night before. Ultimately I think it was an attempt to keep me feeling indebted to him. To get me to ignore major issues we had. I left with less stuff than I had when I met him and I was just glad to walk away feeling that much lighter.
Nonita I was just like you when I really got into k-beauty in the late 2010’s
Especially when the lioele triple the solution bb cream was still something you can buy (still haven’t found a bb cream American/Korean wise that’s compared tbh) but yeah I would over consoom skincare
Especially cause of the whole glass skin trend before it boomed here in burger land
Eventually I realized I couldn’t hoard skincare like I did makeup when I was younger bc of expiry dates! At least with makeup like eyeshadow I’m not too like concerned I guess with the shelf life, especially since palettes are so expensive, but with skincare I realized I was holding onto all the masks and serums that outlived their shelf life and wondered why they weren’t working or having reaction on my skin.
But same now I just have one face wash, an exfoliating face scrub cause I have oily skin so I can’t stand feeling dead skin on my nose and chin, and a toner. The only serums I indulge in now are just two the ordinary serums and the chemical peel serum from them and my skin has been chilling lol
But nona please get into the habit of using sunscreen trust me I feel like that’s something that should be stressed more in skincare
I'll do it just for you ♥
I should buy new sunscreen. I bought one from innisfree but stopped using it and I'm sure it's expired and not good to use now. Also I'm retarded and didn't realize I had to remove sunscreen with a makeup remover… I just used my facewash as usual but obviously that wouldn't get it 100% off so after a while I was like "why… does my skin feel like this…?" and then I realized kek.

It's too easy to shit on funko pop but I hate more the cult of it, instead of the actual object.
Funko collectors can't just buy one funko, they need whole sets and Funko knows how much they're retarded and cultish, so they will release sets after sets, sometimes with the same characters, just to see them basically printing money.
Funkos can't be out of the box.
Funkos must take at least a wall in your house.
We should really tax the cost of plastic for this shit.
Ah, just in case, there are plastic protectors for your plastic box that's supposed to protect your plastic funko!

I'm over figurine stuff in general because while I think that keeping things in box looks bulky and tacky, you also need to hoard boxes yourself if you have any hopes of reselling the fig in the future. Either way takes up space and it's shitty.
I do hate the cult mindset about it but I also at least appreciate that pops are cheap and shitty as fuck. Better than hoarding $100+ figures. Though I guess a wall of funkos might be more expensive than a few decent quality anime figs kek

the weirder the squismallow, the cuter it is to me, usually. I like when they add a little more flair on the face or body or it's just something weird, I'm not a massive consoomer but I do own some ones I like, including bruce (the seal), a different tuxedo sam, and the fries here

Ty the beanie baby/beanie boo brand is now making 'squish a boos' which are another bland and lazy copy of mallows. Selling them in a range of sizes to compete. The bigger they are the plainer they get too.
I was placing an order lately and needed something small to qualify for free shipping so I ordered a lil 4 inch one. The minis at least have the same glittery eyes as beanie boos but then the larger sizes don't even have the glitter eyes? I guess it's because the plastic eyes would take away from it being a cushion but.. they all look so same-ish when you remove the one feature that made them a recognizable ty product. Not a fan of how everything is becoming a blob with dots for eyes.

i have been enjoying these #sundayreset videos lately, something about the stop-motion editing style and watching things be cleaned is satisfying to me. i do find them mildly motivating too. but they are also conspicuous consoomerism to the max. every video is exactly the same. everyone has the same items, the same routine, the same house deco style. the samsung washer and dryer set. the iced coffee in a starbucks cup. those plastic bins in their fridge. conspicuously buying fruits and veggies and putting them in little containers. the thing that stands out to me the most though is that everyone has white sheets. what happened to fun colors for your bedsheets? why does everyone's apartment have to look like a gray hotel? it kind of creeps me out, the uniformity. when you can peek into peoples' lives like this you should be seeing variety, the messiness of the human condition, instead everyone looks the same, owns the same things, does the same thigns in the same order with their routine. and let's be real these videos are mostly made by and for young adult women. the trend of trying to be 'that girl' is so obsessive and encompassing that there is no room for variation whatsoever.
Anyway, Americans like to show off fresh fruit because to them, especially to bougies, it means you can conduct an almost luxury lifestyle, but since they cannot really preserve it or consume it in decent amounts, they have to put it in water in the fridge.
Cola and Juice are less expensive than bottled water, think about it for a second how much can fresh fruit cost.

I have this one as a 12 inch. I love it because he's so big and soft to cuddle or use as a pillow, but I don't really get the function of the smaller ones. Are they purely for decoration? Surely they're too small to cuddle or lie on, especially the 8 inch ones.

I thought about making a thread for toy collecting but maybe it overlaps a bit too much with this?
I visit the one on 4chans /toy/ but god do I hate the moids. Always whining when fashion dolls are not sexy enough for them. There's also a schitzo with an obsession for short haired women, as her "militant feminazi lesbian" mom forced her to have a practical haircut as a kid. So now she is the ultimate pick me, hating those damn wokie wamen having short hair. A moid is constantly whining about not being able to get women because he collects barbies, despite been told time and time again there would most likely be many women wanting to share a doll hobby with a significant other.
Ok, rant over. That place just really activates my almonds from time to time. Thankfully there is at least one person telling scrotes to fuck off, if you are here I love you bby! Unironically Reddit is also pretty good for doll stuff, since it's just autistic women mostly and a minimal amount of politics.

honestly the style mainly reminds me of a 3D rendered doctor slump kinda deal. It's so butt ugly though
>>1099587>b-but what about, uuuuh…..
You talk like you think you know any of us. Wallace and Gromit is ugly but it's not MEANT to be cute, for one. Try a better comparison with older Pixar movies or 2D western movies, I'd rather binge watch 90s Disney movie or French animation than touch this red panda shit with a ten foot pole. The character design is ugly in a "non-offensive and non-problematic
doodles from a teenage tumblr artist who draws on her notebooks during class in high school" way AND the facial expressions, body languages and behavior of the characters are so obnoxious and exaggerated I want to teleport myself to the movie's setting and bitch slap all the charcter. It's as annoying as watching kawaii uwu Kyoani series with normal movements being way too detailed for not reason whatsoever to make the female characters look cute, sinve you mentioned anime. It's like the designers and animators tried to hard to use some lolsorandum humor and utterly failed. Anyone who think this is a "relatable" movie for teenage girls are insulting teenage girls as a whole because not everyone is an obnoxious retard like the MC. I'm just saying this based on the many trailers I've seen, I'll watch it later this week.
>If Arale and Ghibli characters were 3d, they’d look exactly like the TR girl.
Yeah, I think Ghibli tried to make a 3d movie recently and everyone hated how it looked, and rightfully so. Terrible example, once again. As for Akira Toriyama in general, I won't complain about his art style because it looks like he knows how to draw and his designs for Dragon Quests 3D games seem ok to me. But then again, video games and animated movies are very different.

Did you ever stop to consider that maybe this movie wasn't made for you? Maybe, just maybe, it was meant for actual children? And the reason you prefer 90s Disney is because it was made for you when you were a child?
Personally I don't even think it's ugly. The cartoony models fit the exaggerated movements. And the colors and environments are pretty as always. It just reads as cute to me.>>1098364
I thought it was nice that they showed teenage girls liking boy bands, without it just being a joke.
, maybe the story is good, I don't know, I won't watch it 'cause it's a children's movie, I just think that the artstyle is really ugly.

this is just normal hygiene, they're literally bathing themselves in cheap, skin drying scented piss water. No normal hygiene tips.
It's always funny to me when I see women having tons of heavily scented nonsense but have disgusting nails that they don't know how to clean under, scalp problems from not washing enough, bad breath, skin infections galore. Just call it scent consoomerism instead of hygiene
Np anon, and honestly the fact that you didn't consider for a second it was actually set in the 2000s and had to be corrected just goes to show what a poor job they did asserting the setting LOL. I've heard that people who grew up in Toronto in that time period felt the area was depicted accurately in the film but idk about that because I'm a burger.>>1100480

I hate witch consoormerism so so much. I hate how spirituality has turned into materialism, that's not what it's about at all. Even if your altar has just two candles and a smudge stick, it's your intention and trust in mother nature that counts. blog but I was scared to get big into spirituality for years because I thought I'd have to buy so much stuff which I didn't have the money for and din't fully know how to use. I've finally set up an alter recently and the only thing I had to buy were smudge sticks, candles, a few candleholders and dishes which cost me next to nothing at the thrift store. The rest of my collection (like tarot cards, incense and most of all knowledge were acquired through research. Sage just in case because this is the longest bloggiest post I've ever made lol.

And if you're going to do this shit, at least label your jars. I thought this shit was granola bars but it's fucking dog treats.
Sorry nona you do you but having multiple showergels is consoomerism in my book. Or at least makes you a victim
of succesfull marketing.

i'll have a seasonal splurge every now and then, that i end up feeling bad about every time because my limit is like $200. i always buy a t-shirt or 2, funny and trendy socks, scrunchies, new nail polish (even if i have a whole box of unfinished colors) candles, and cute hair clips. it's been getting better though since i learned to draw; when i feel like reinventing myself, i draw ocs and dress them up instead of going to shop.

I consoomed alot in my late teens and twenties, and as a result I had alot of stuff that I stopped using or wasn't interested in anymore when I hit 30. Especially since I wear uniform 5 days a week most of my clothes and shoes hadn't seen light in years.
For the past three weeks I've taken time out of my day to take out everything I haven't used for a long time and probably will never use, and figures/trinkets/kawaii shit and other junk I have no interest in anymore. I've gotten rid of most of it (trash, donate, sell) and my room feels so much nicer with all this space I have now. But the biggest hurdle I'm facing now is avoiding putting in new things I know will end up the same way.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting a space that's a pink void, the problem is that why the fuck you need 3 phones or 5 key boards? The keyboards was particularly triggering
to me, especially the miku keys that where clearly pressing on other keys and rendering the entire keyboard unfunctional. It's just a matter of knowing when to stop because I know damn well a good chunk of the tat bought is going into storage never to be seen again.
Lmao this is correct
In a similar fashion, those who consoome and hoard makeup products are always the fugly girls. Nobody can go through dozens of lipsticks without them expiring
Food/snacks. I'm not a fatty I promise, I just hate going to the local supermarket which is poorly stocked, kinda too far away for what it offers, and staffed by bitchy 20somethings. Whenever I go to the nearest big mall I'll just go to the fancy grocery shop there, that I also have a bonus card for.
I used to consoom a lot when I got tired of being unfashionable and frumpy, but now I just channel all of that into food shopping and buy clothes second-hand online if I need any. I've saved so much money, enough to afford a solo trip to Japan for 3 weeks, but then the pandemic came along.

I do to nonnie
but actual dioramas/miniatures made by adults for adults don't look like that. That shit doesnt even have a scale, is chunky, and the prints are mostly poor quality. I used to see minibrand videos some years ago and exepct some minitoys from a colab with Nickelodeon is mostly unusable for dioramas. I know it can be an overlap with miniatures & children's toys like with Sylvanian Families, but minibrands are 100% children's toys and a meme toy to make things worse, with 0 collector's value. Sorry for the sperg.

Snacks with weird flavours. I am also a sucker for a good limited edition snack.
I think I may have gotten over toy collecting. Used to post a lot in the /m/ thread and constantly was on the lookout for vintage dolls and MLP. It's been like 3 months since I last did that.
It may be medically induced chemical changes in my brain, so I cannot be too sure about it… but God, I hope I'm done with collecting shit. Will make saving money so much easier, even though I still plan to spend on clothes, concert tickets, books (I download most via b-ok.cc, but some I want to have on my shelf or aren't available as ebooks) etc. It feels good to no longer obsess over random things that my mind comes up with! It also feels weird to not give a fuck about something that gave me joy and was important for a long time.
I'm also the anon who has wondered about giving up/selling plushies >>1060466
. I haven't done anything by the time the Ukraine war hit, so I was able to give them away for the immigrant children. IDK what to do with the rest of my stuff, like G3 My Little Pony. I'm not super attached to them (contrary to G1/G2 - those are staying with me and I may buy a G1 or two in the future when I'm feeling nostalgic and sure it will not jumpstart consooming), but I don't want to sell them for next to nothing. I have considered renting a storage for all the clutter I'm not set on selling yet. Same with dolls - I probably LOVE LOVE only a half of my collection, but I'm not ready to make any decision. I'm not exactly in the right headspace, to be honest.
I know that it's a waste of money, but I'm considering renting a storage. It's not THAT expensive, and maybe some distance would help me decide if I want to keep those things or not (and if I want to sell them, what should be the starting price).
I no longer have the urge to consoom, but I still feel connection to some of my posessions or they bring me visual pleasure. I could probably get rid of most of them, but… yeah. Too much of a hassle and an emotional strain when I have plenty at the moment.
Anon, how much stuff do you have in your home that you're thinking of getting rid of? Is it really enough for a storage unit? One thing that has helped me downsize has been setting things aside in a box in a closet (only works if you have room, though) and then seeing how it feels to have those things out of sight. If I don't miss them or need them after 30 days, I sell or donate them. If you have the space I'd try something like that first before spending more money on storage. But I definitely think getting some distance from your belongings helps, as long as you don't fill the space with new stuff.
Good for you for donating your plushies and prioritizing on what you want to spend money on, though. That feels like great progress and I'm happy some kids in needs can get some comfort from the plushies. Personally I think things like books and music (especially digital) are a great substitute for buying physical items to collect. I don't think you'll regret spending money on experiences like concerts, either.
The storage units are super cheap, like $20 for a month of using the smallest one (which still gives you a lot of space). I'm living in an cluttered flat, about to move (not chosen a place yet so IDK about space). I have a lot of my items in boxes anyway, but it may help to not have them around. I also don't want the next place to be as cluttered as this one.
A storage will also give me a place to store my anime figure and appliance boxes (question, do other people keep those when buying a vacuum cleaner? I'm not sure if I can get rid of them no problem).
Still kind of stressing about keeping Vs selling items, though some certainly should be resold if I want to get rid of them (90s Barbie dolls, for example).
I spend too much money on buying coffee out rather than having coffee before I leave the house. Or I'll look at my travel mug before I leave and still think 'nah I deserve a proper coffee out' it's small but then it adds up like crazy when you find endless excuses to treat yourself. I'm so cheap with my food groceries but I'll grab overpriced drinks no problem?
There's a clearance store near me where the toy section always gets me seeing as it's mostly licensed toys selling cheap as it's last years stock. I don't even hoard it, I do clear outs and feel stupid when I hand over my donation bags.
I'm bad for this. I have a boring life so I treat brand new chocolate bars like an adventure lol.
I remember as a kid new releases were rare. It was the same junk food options week in and week out. Now my small country has started importing options from America and other countries without the big price mark ups that specialised import stores used to have. Like a kid in a candy store..

! I've also been donating stuff to Ukrainian refugees, such as plushies I've been thinking of letting go of. For some reason I've hoarded colouring books and markers/coloured pencils so I donated those too. I totally agree with you about giving stuff away to those who need it and will appreciate it feeling fulfilling!

Call me a tard but I'm a functional adult with childhood neglect in my past, all the way down to medical neglect and lifelong physical affects it left me with. I often see extreme examples of "I'm an adult toy collector and proud" and I cringe but I also have my own lil nagging voice in me that spots kid crap and wants it. I understand the driving force behind it but refuse to go crazy wth it as a cope. I keep it small and cheap. When I lived with an ex he would indulge my liking of plushies too much and I wasn't complaining at the time but I don't want my living space to be like that again.
These fucking things though lol. Any time I go near a mystery type toy or egg it's always expecting a lil licensed figure. You also expect that it'll be of questionable quality but that's almost part of the fun… I got a lil nub of a crayon instead?? That's just cruel. No child would even be happy with that. Where's my shitty figure? kek
Kinder natoons were good. I've stopped spotting them in stores here but the last one I bought had a beaver in it so I don't think you can top that.
Holy shit, I never thought about it this way. I saw a storytime with a nail painting video in the bg describing how a girl discovered her sister who was 16 was in an incestual relationship with their father and she caught them fucking and how they did it every week. I wished in my heart it was made up but it is so insidious… people in the comment section didn't see how the sister was a victim
to her father and how it was her fault. It was sick. I can imagine some kid innocently watching that… horrible.

Reading this thread and watching some documentaries recently has given me the motivation to finally get my shit together. I knew consumerism was bad but I never considered I was part of the problem because I never did those big ass shein hauls that got tossed a week later. I went through my bathroom and am throwing away (or recycling/giving away, if able) all the shit I thought I would need one day or I could fix. I used to be such a makeup hoarder and the fact that I’ve hung onto to much of it for so long is embarrassing, especially considering I’ve had this shit for years and most of it is expired. I’ve been trying to be more thoughtful about my purchases for the past year and this just reaffirms my feelings. It’s fucking gross how wasteful I was.
Here’s to doing the rest of my apartment and not burning my money!

>>1120617> delayed gratification
What I do is I make a list on my phone or an online wishlist and, if I don’t actually need the item, I’ll try and let it sit on the list as long as possible. If I still want it after a while then it isn’t an impulse buy and thus not a waste of money.
> I take photos of cute shit I would be tempted to impulse buy
I also do this. I would rather be a photo hoarder on my phone where it’s all digital and easy to manage than in real life. It’s similar to the delayed gratification; this also helps me avoid impulse buys. Plus I could always try to make the item at home with stuff I already have. Anytime I have really sentimental items but I’m trying to declutter, taking a photo also helps. I make a little sentimental folder on my phone and it gives me the peace of mind to get rid of it
> binge eating
I also struggle with binge eating. Most of my binges are in the evening/at night. try to set a reasonable time that you stop eating at 2-3 hours before bed. I’ve been doing it for a while and now I’m nauseous in the morning if I eat too close to my bedtime, which makes me not want to do it again. If certain foods trigger
your binge eating, stop buying them. I’ve tried so many things to stop binging on those certain foods but nothing has worked for me beyond not buying them anymore. My trigger
foods are not healthy and it doesn’t sound like yours are not either, so I say focus on cutting them out of your diet. If you’re ever tempted to buy it, ask yourself if you’re really okay with eating x amount in one sitting and remember how shitty you’ll feel physically and mentally.
I personally have an issue with clothes. I have a lot of cute outfits, but when I moved to my current city I stopped going out because… I have yet to make any friends. I don’t want to get rid of them so recently I’ve been trying to dress up a bit more when I leave for little things like getting groceries. I’ve noticed it helping my self esteem and making me more social, too. Who would’ve thought not dressing like a homeless guy anymore would’ve made me more confident…
-put new makeup inside or try making your own (if your feeling ambitious and really want to)
-use it to store items like small jewelry, paperclips, mints, medication, etc
-put pictures in it
-not sure if this is possible, but try to turn it into a journal somehow?
-mini sewing kit
-if you like painting, put some paint in it
-idk add some magnets and stick it on your fridge
If you genuinely can not find a way to repurpose it, snap some cute pictures of it and do yourself a favor: toss it. You don’t have to hold onto everything you like and, no offense, you kind of seem like you have a hoarder mentality for holding onto it just because it’s ~pretty~ despite a majority of people thinking of it as trash. It’s not going to hurt like you think to have it gone.
This seems kind of ot, you might want to keep this kind of stuff in the vent thread. Unless the delivery portion is enough to warrant it being here and I’m just a dumbass.
that being said, try to start going out for what you need. I developed really intense anxiety surrounding going outside/being around people since I stopped leaving the house during covid. I promise you, exposure helps. It’s really freaky and uncomfortable at first but you won’t regret it once you’re used to it. Find literally any excuse to go outside and try just going on daily walks before or after when you’re expecting your package. I get the embarrassment over the same people delivering your shit. I used to get ubereats all the time and I felt so embarrassed and like a fatass.
