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.

If someone reads 50 pages every day they can read 52 350-page books in a year. It takes people about 1-1.5 hours to read 50 pages depending on the book and their reading level. There are people who truly don't have that amount of time to spare for reading but there are also many people who waste at least 1 hour on social media every day.

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.

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 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).

Logically I can’t think of a reason that putting meds in aesthetic containers is bad, I have even wanted to get a cute pill organizer for my meds when I travel as a consolation for having to carry them around in the first place — and because it would be more organized and convenient than throwing all my different pills into one old Tylenol bottle — but that set up just screams ‘romanticizing my illness’ for some reason

there's stores in my country where you have to take your own containers and have them filled! they're literally called "unpackaged (goods) stores". you bring all your containers and they fill it with rice, pasta, flour, sugar, oats, etc. that way you can avoid plastic packaging and stuff like that. it's super annoying to haul all your stuff around though… and i'm betting picrel is not that way because the owner goes to a zero waste store for their pasta kek

But while some anons see it as soulless, I just see a space that is clean and looks easy to take care of.

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.

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.

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.

Do you think if you'd spent less or no money on the game, you might feel differently? I fall into this "I could be doing something useful right now" mindset a lot and I struggle with identifying whether the guilt I feel is proportional to what I'm actually doing. We only have so much free time to learn new things, but sometimes just having fun doing something is ok. The exception of course is if the time you spent playing was cutting into your studies or something.

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.

I also feel that flawed cosplay, sometimes, have more earth and "love" to it.

Stuff like 2nd pic looks cool in my opinion but where is she gonna store all that big bulky armor after? Not to mention that series and anime trends come and go.

I mean if you’re making the costume yourself or commissioning a cosplay maker (not from taobao) directly then I don’t think it’s that bad.

Buying cheap mass produced aliexpress costumes is peak consoomerism though.

No. 1043235

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…

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.

No. 1043380

I own all my furniture second-hand from my granmas, except the sofas as those are better bought new for hygiene concerns. I get your hype, anon. Me and mum often visit a local thrift shop to look for cute things, the temptation is strong, but I always need to justify its use. I pretty much buy only cups and sauce/rice dishes, as I always need them, and sometimes landscape paintings, as they are a cheap good decoration that doesn't take long to dust off.

No. 1043383

My friend's house had a little shelf like this filled with little trinkets from places they've travelled. I think it's a cute idea as long as you don't let it overtake your house. I have quite a few little sentimental items from my grandmother (she def over collected a lot of things) but I see it as if it means something to you and wasn't bought on a whim to fill space its okay to have a few things like this (just don't let your house look like a Goodwill)

No. 1043415

Is collecting for the sake of collecting enough of a utility, if its like one of your hobbies? Like I like to collect these little sculptures by a local artist, and also cat figures. But I try and limit the amount I have because I don't want it to be all cluttered, I can't really appreciate them that way. I try not to get any new ones unless I've decided to get rid of old ones. I pick a few of them every year or so and donate them and then get new cuties to display. When I buy figures and stuffed toys I also try and learn about them, that's where the hobbyist part would come in I guess.

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.

A thing that strikes me as particularly ugly and stupid is how they have sometimes 2 or 3 of the SAME figure in different colors displayed right next to each other, 0 taste, peak consumerism.

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.

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….

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.

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

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.

Then someone I know started an online store and spent a bunch of money and time on packaging and freebies and it made me question if I was running my business wrong.

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.

As usual it's short term gain for long term loss. Tret seems to have taken off, but it dissolves the fat in your face and makes your skin thin, making it sag and wrinkle more when you get older. Sunscreen has hormone disruptors and you get lots of health issues from not enough vitamin D.

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.

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.

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.

I went from basic skincare, to consooming, and then toned it back down out of pure laziness. I just do wash, toner, and moisterizer and I use one of those microfiber make up eraser things to remove my make up (99% of the time only wear eyeliner and fill in my eyebrows). Once a week I'll use TO 30% AHA/BHA mask because I have normal to oily skin and it helps keep my breakouts at bay, and I'll add niacinamide into my routine that day.

I still consoom, but to a much lesser extent. I use a different morning and night toner and I have soooo many face washes that I switch between every morning/night because many of them were from my peak consooming days and I'm just trying to get through them. I still have some other masks I bought and want to use up and never buy again (I'll only ever buy the 30% mask consistently from now on). I cannot consoom moisterizers because my face breaks out and I get milia around my eyes. No idea why but I'm stuck using a specific moisterizer that I took from my mom. At least it's only $20 per bottle but she orders it from our local pharmacy and I don't know where to buy it in stores.

I still love to look at new things and debate adding them into my routine, but once the novelty wears off I just want to wash up as quickly as possible and end up cutting back down to my bare minimum. Sheet masks are always tempting but I always end up forgetting I have them, plus I've only ever used one or two where it felt like it made an improvement in my skin. I should really use sunscreen but I am just… lazy.

No. 1084721

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.

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.

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

I only use facewash now (I 'scrub' the dead skin cells off my face with my hands about twice a week when I wash my hair and am in the shower for more than 2 minutes, so no more harsh scrubs!) and it works fantastic! I still have acne but it's way better than before. Skincare really is a scam.

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.

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.

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.

I live in a mediterranean country and ngl I have never seen people buy that many veggies for a week.

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.

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!

Some of your reactions to Turning Red are neckbeard weeb levels of autistic. The style is the standard Disney/Pixar/Rubber Hose influence with a tiny bit of hyperactive anime-like SD. They’ve all been around for ages so getting this fucked up about it now only looks like retard bandwagoning. Wallace & Gromit has always been the ugliest, most grim use of beanmouth ever and Pixar characters usually look like goofy caricature art anyway. If Arale and Ghibli characters were 3d, they’d look exactly like the TR girl. This cognitive dissonance and outrage has to be some kind of childish japonism, right? It’s also not at all cringe for a movie about little girls to feature boybands. It looks like they made the band very generic and non-descript anyway? It would be completely disingenuous to straight up to use NSYNC etc because the kids like kpop and that’s obviously what they were getting at. Why wouldn’t it appeal to modern audiences? Should Pixar make ~nostalgic kids movies for adults? There could be a lot of things worth criticising these this movie for but the things you all worry about are stupid.

>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?

Of course I considered that, but I also think about how I became more open minded as I got older, and if you showed me just the movie trailer when I was a kid, so as part of the target demographic, I would have disliked it even more just because of how ugly and obnoxious it is. I remember how my tastes were back then and this is the exact opposite of what I would have liked.

I totally agree. For a couple of years I got really into the 'idea' of witchcraft, but mainly the tumblr idea of what it was meant to look like. I completely missed the mark, as you said, it's more intention and trust in mother nature than any certain 'look'. I just bought a bunch of books, expensive crystals and was more concerned with creating an aesthetically pleasing grimoire than practicing actual withcraft. I wasted so much money, even bought a special abalone shell for my sage stick over just an ashtray or somthing. I ended up selling it all except for a few crystals. I got caught up in the whole witchcraft asthetic over actual witchcraft which is sad. I'm glad you've managed to create an alter without getting sucked into consoomerism nona.

That's not necessarily true. Over here it's perfectly normal to keep your biscuits/cookies in a biscuit jar otherwise they go stale in their original packaging (provided you're not eating them all in one day). Same with sugar bags, the sugar will go hard if kept in the flimsy paper bag it comes in. Most 'resealable' bags just come with a sticker that loses the sticky as you keep opening it up, making the food go stale. When keeping them in airtight jars they last much longer. I do think it's dumb putting cleaning products in alternative jars however.

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.

I think being a consoomer in those years are very normal. I practically owned nothing in my teen years because i would save all my money for huge purchases like gaming consoles and videogames. I also literally only owned pyjamas after high school because i never went out and never bought clothes and generally didn't care how i looked, i just wore whatever my brother didn't want. Fast foward to my 20s, i suddenly decided i wanted to be more feminine, got a job and found myself consooming cosmetics, skincare and clothes. I have slowed down now, but i still have an issue with consooming food and I want to stop.

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.

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.

Sage 4 blog but am I really the only one who enjoys being surrounded by mess? I used to be a shopping addict which is why I have so much stuff but I have barely bought anything in the last two years. I just like having a mess around me, a non-messy home feels so sterile to me. I have clothes hanging from my closet doors solely because it somehow gives me comfort to be surrounded by colorful flower dresses, my books, dvd's, cd's, vinyl and small doll collection (I do actually use them, except for the dolls lol).

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.

No. 1113239

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.

No. 1113311

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'm so cheap with my food groceries but I'll grab overpriced drinks no problem?

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.

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.

This terrible '''beige nursery aesthetic''' is bordering on child neglect. Babies need a mentally stimulating environment with different colours, textures, and sounds to develop properly, and what do these poor kids get? A room as stimulating as a bowl of oatmeal, with the bonus of featuring in an unpaid ad spot for some shitty Amazon furniture. I don't even like kids but shit like this just makes me sad for the upcoming generation.

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.

No. 1120427

I’m giving away what I can to coworkers and friends/family or donating. If you’re talking about the green and pink milk bottles, I think they were okay. They made my skin nice but were about on par with cheaper face masks; I don’t think it’s worth the extra cash for a brand name. They also dried out fairly quickly.

Tysm! I got them from sin in linen. It was more than I wanted to shell out, but the pattern had been stuck in my head for months and I couldn’t find any alternatives that quite did it for me. I’ve had it almost a year and have 0 regrets, it’s my favorite part of my room

No. 1120541

You just reminded me that I've done the same thing with my own make up and skin care, I threw away anything expired or that looked awful on me, kept what I liked and wanted to keep using, and after that someone in my family stole and most likely threw away most of the things I wanted to keep for some reason, probable to """help""". I'm 100% sure it's my mother who did this because she's extremely retarded and can't help but take other people's stuff and "tidy" things up without permission and once I'll finally make her admit it I'll make her pay me back the 150€ worth of makeup she threw away. I'm still salty. I don't think I've ever owned as much makeup as you have all at once though, but when I started buying stuff I bought semi-expensive brands that my sisters recommended to me.

No. 1120617

Sharing some things that helped me stop consooming:

- delayed gratification. I journal and I'll make a 'wishlist' page of stuff I'm currently wanting. Every time I see that page I can cross off if I no longer want something or if I bought it. If it's something generic like 'bubble bath' I'll get it somewhere I know is cheap like Home Bargains, and if it's a big purchase I'll keep checking depop and online sales. Sometimes I keep checking and it never goes down enough in price for me, and eventually I no longer want it ha. This originally started off as something to refer back to when people ask me what I want for Xmas/birthday but it turned out really useful in decreasing impulse buys.

- charity shopping with a specific thing in mind. Like I wanted a couple good quality white t shirts to wear under strappy dresses for a more modest look at work, so I was checking all the labels until I found 100% cotton ones

- I take photos of cute shit I would be tempted to impulse buy. I can send it to my friends but I also can look back through my photos and see kawaii goods and plushies and stationery and it gives me just as much as a !! feeling as when I first saw it

- I recently got some cold water fruity teabags which are a good healthier option if I'm craving a kawaii drink. I can brew some in the fridge in a cute reusable glass bottle I thrifted and it turns out all pink and yummy. And if I'm wanting a kawaii snack I just take effort to make my meals that day cuter. Like cutting carrot slices into stars or making an aesthetic side salad.

- my biggest downfall is clothes because one of my biggest thrills is finding something unique in a charity shop. I have to be so stern and think 'can I wear this for work?' because at least then I can get a lot of wear out of it. I wear a limited colour palette so I can mix and match, but I've always had a sense of pride about being fashionable and finding unique pieces so it's hard to undo that in my sense of self. The only way I can validate it to myself is by limiting myself to 5 new clothing items a month, only shopping second hand (apart from underwear and stuff obvs) and regularly going through all my unworn/unfitting stuff to donate back.

- the only thing I want help with is binge eating. Denied a lot of food items growing up so there's specific things I can't help but binge on. Random stuff such as sandwiches, soft cookies, exotic fruits, muffins. I'm doing a lot of mindfulness and spotting my emotional triggers and stuff, and I'm getting better but I'm not fully there yet

> 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…

No. 1120975

-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.

No. 1120990

I live somewhere where in-person shopping is tricky. I only have grocery stores nearby. I don't drive, I'd need to get a train if I want to clothes shop and since covid it feels like it's not worth facing the crowds to travel hours just to shop. I fell into a routine of ordering online more. I've anxiety too so I was like… this is ideal.

I now have developed a sort of dread or self consciousness around the fact that it's the same 2 guys delivering all my parcels and I'm almost embarrassed by the amount. Maybe it's not even that much but it's everything that I buy that's not not food so it feels like alot some weeks. I'm also fed up of not being able to go for a walk whenever or pop to a shop for food because I'm home all day expecting that parcel. A few deliveries have gone wrong and wasted my time or stressed me out as I chased it up. It has started to not feel worth it. I might try and turn this into a good thing. I need to get out more again and in-person shopping is less impulsive than the habit I've entered into. I would place an order and sometimes an hour later I'd start to dread it arriving, resent the waiting around or get stressed because they sent it via an unreliable method.
