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.

Man, sometimes I feel really bad about being a weeb consoomer myself but at least I actually enjoy the things I buy and watch the shows / play the games. Although that's hardly an excuse, I really should lay off buying weeb crap. I still truly can't imagine being so devoid of a personality and interests that you buy a bunch of shit for the aesthetic. Especially since weeb stuff is pretty tacky. I can't even deny that it's cringe I just have literal autism. If you're gonna waste money on an "aesthetic" at least make it something that is universally nice looking.

Anyone have any weeb room pics that don't have the theme pink? All the pink is really nauseating. Where's the blues, whites, etc.

She has spent "so much time and money" making a nendoroid of herself in pretty much the same setup her actual room is which she also has spent a lot of money too. I would find this idea kind of cute if there wasn't such consooming involved. There's nothing creative about this as her room is basically exactly the same. I hate sanrio characters(and whatever characters) have become some sort of personality trait.

There really is no cheap housing anymore regardless of tempature conditions tbh. I lived in an area where you're practically required to blast heat in order to not freeze to death from September-May and you get like 3 nice months in summer and that's it. Rent was still tripling in record numbers just because everyone else from big cities had the same idea of "if you move to the place with shit tempatures, it will be cheap". Now you gotta deal with expensive everything, shit temp and a growing population in areas that weren't built to sustain that many people at once

Everyone blames "hippies coming in from Cali" but it's really not, it's rich people opening up bougie resorts and businesses and turning what would be a family town into a vacation tourist town

Gas is literally above minimum wage and it's killing people. I also feel like gas is lowering in quality if that makes sense? It feels like now when I fill up I'm quickly back to E when before I easily had 30 mpg, now it feels like 10 mpg if even that. I also noticed car repairs are becoming way more expensive and lower quality. I paid almost 100$ for an oil change when they didn't even change the filter or get rid of the previous oil, literally just threw new oil on and called it a day. I'm no car expert but even I knew that was wrong

I know how to change it myself but I was in college at the time and didn't have access to tools or a location where I can do it myself and I had no place to store said tools. It's still pretty predatory especially when it comes to repairs because simple repairs being unaffordable will just force middle and lower class to just drive unsafe vehicles and kill themselves or others

I’m a reformed consoomer and just moved to a new smaller apartment. So I had to throw some things that I bought as a teenager. As a young weeb teen I used to buy soooo many figures and cosplays whenever I went to Japan. I think I got fooled by the whole “it’s not hoarding, it’s collections of valuable anime items that can be sold for high value” because that’s just a complete lie. Now I’m sitting here with tons of wigs and figures and no buyers. Literally such a waste of money and space. And yeah figures like pic related that I have is cute but what’s it’s purpose? To be quickly glanced at. It’s useless. I’m so angry at my naive teenage self.

Yeah but you get what I mean. Anon said she has a smaller place than before so I assume she has to be careful not to have too much stuff at her place, but if she has a big apartment or house then she could have enough space for more than two figurines. But the trick is to know how many is too many.

No. 1209252

>>1209247
True, I think its how much you like the figures you have vs having a bunch of shit figures everywhere. Quality over quantity, or in any case, how much you love a figure > having a lot of them. I only have figs from things I like, some of them even have sentimental value.

i remember when she was friends with vo1dchan kek >>1214250 is her room so it's not recent collecting, she's just spoilt. i have no fucking idea how parents let their kids get so spoilt at a young age, her account got nuked so I can't post it unfortunately, but she posted a picture of her room as a kid, and it was filled with sailor moon and other shoujoshit. by her age it a was probably like 2012 when anime stuff wasnt something you could go to the shopping center for so her parents probably imported that shit, at least with stuffed animals you can just get them from tesco or something.
she also was obsessed with miku years back and would call any other miku kin invalid because they didn't have as large of a "miku shrine" as her, trying to find her room pics from her kinblr era but they seem to be lost. all i found was picrel

sorry to expose my vendetta im just surprised she's talked about since she left a while ago

I am an extreme consumerist weeb to the point of ordering magazines cds and dvds etc straight from japan of the stuff I love even though they're in a completely different language or region locked. I've also amassed my collection over the course of 15 16ish years so I guess I'm a lot less consumerist than teenagers getting a full on weeb room over the course of a month.

There's an abundance of adults in this thread who show their age by saying how long they've been collecting, and it's weird to me that adults have to compare themselves to teenagers to prove that they're "true weebs" or whatever. It either comes from a place or projection or jealousy or both. A lot of teenagers copy people they find cool, it's nothing new. Usually, adults don't boast about how much better than them they are for it though. They usually grow out of it or grow up to become one of these adults and the cycle continues I guess

NTA but I think it's fine to mock the people (regardless how old they are) who have rooms full of plastic shit that's taking over their life and impacting their quality of living.

The main thing I hoarded was books, because I could justify it as reading being an educational and healthy hobby kek.

Big chains obviously factor theft into their business model. Employees probably know that you're stealing, you're not as clever as you think you are. Shoplifting is still consooming, probably the worst form of consooming, because you aren't limited by money it's hypothetically endless. For example >>1215928 is absolutely a problem. You are not fighting capitalism, it is an addiction that is not worth bragging about and it almost always escalates until you're arrested. Please don't go to jail for shitty perfumes you don't need nor probably even actually want. If you really must hide things away in your pockets, how about going outside and seeing if there are cool rocks and stones to collect? You still get a rush when you find something good.

I've been a consoomer most of my life. My parents enabled the habit when I was young and I continued the pattern into adulthood. It was only about 4-5 years ago I started to acknowledge my habits and I have been slowly selling most of the useless shit I've acquired.

On the shoplifting topic, it's against most company policies in the US for employees to get involved with a known or suspected shoplifter. They would rather let the cameras at the doors or in the parking lot catch people and then fill out police reports. If you are stealing, make sure its little dumbass shit. If you're a repeat offender grabbing high value stuff you will get slapped with a felony. Sometimes they'll even let you knowingly steal more so you hit the minimum for felony charges.

Records and VHS. I'm trying to only buy horror VHS now cause they're the only ones worth something but I love collecting awful forgotten b-movies too. The fact that I can get them for 50¢ or 1$ doesn't help. I slowed down on the records buying cause I can't affort it right now but I miss going record shopping so much. Finding something rare that I've been looking for for years is awesome. Whenever I travel I have to go to the record stores.

Also on the topic of shoplifitng. They probably know you do it, they just keep collecting evidence on you. I worked retail in many stores and this is what we did. The only thing the employees can do is follow you and tell you off but one day you just won't be able to go in the store anymore and might get a huge fine or get arrested. It is not worth it. It is also very annoying to deal with as an employee and will probably reduce bonuses and salary raises (because obviously dumbdass employers think it's your fault if people steal).

I work at a Target that is extremely high-theft (people push carts loaded with stuff out the fire exits every day, multiple times a day) and I think the biggest impact it has on employees is that it absolutely fucks our inventory, which is a headache, and it does suck for customers bring their kids in to buy Lego sets and find the Lego aisle empty because a crackhead walked out with them all earlier that day. One time a dude stole all our toothbrushes?? Hours/payroll have been limited, but corporate would try to squeeze through with a skeleton crew no matter what because it saves them money. Honestly, a teen girl stealing lipstick or something is not as big a deal as career thieves, who steal way more stuff and are sometimes violent and armed, but in regards to the thread theme I don't see how it's any better than spending your money on useless stuff in the first place?

Exactly and in that sense I don't get all of these statements about zoomers being inventive maximalists or whatever; it's just not true in real life. When millenials were teens / young adults, there also have been few people with niche taste dressing weird outside but it was almost just as rare as it is now with zoomers, so both groups are barely any different.

All these -cores say are 'I like the aestheic but have no interest in the rest'

Even more nebulous things like 'weird core' speak more to people who want to be perceived as bizarre and unknowable but are just as inclined to be an oversharing tiktok zombie as any other.

At this point it means signaling to others that you're cool and in the know but ultimately have no substance or interest in anything.

What room is there for true interests when the space is taken up by the concept of "Looking like someone who…."

I had a shoplifting phase, and I'd recommend you'd stop or at least do it a lot less fequently and in different places. My 2 strikes were the day I went ham with my bf and we stole about 500 euros worth of small trinkets/jewellery in a day, then another time said bf stole from a small independent toy store when we'd always only taken from big chain stores, and I wanted to return the stolen items but it's harder said than done and even though I didn't do it, it really put the guilt in me. Plus there were times I stole because the opportunity was there or I couldn't be bothered waiting in the queue, which to me feels like the wrong reasons to steal. And it was starting to pile up. I started my just-for-fun shoplifting (after shoplifting essentials like tampons) by stealing one of pic related (I think the giraffe) then went on to collect dozens.
Now I'm older I don't think I would. It really is addictive and makes you feel resentful for actually buying anything, years later I still feel like a chump when I pay 25 euros for something I could easily hide under my phone then put both in my pocket.

I had a shoplifting phase too. My friend and I would always go to Target and lift nail polishes and make up, and the occasional clothing item. I actually have some dresses I stole from Target that I still have to this day and I wore to my graduations lol. Once I was hungry and stole those chocolate caramel turtles and regretted it because they were overly sweet, not sure why I didn't just take something savory instead. I actually went to work at the Target I stole a bunch of shit from kek. I worked at another retail store for a bit and they really had eagle eyes for shoplifters. Sometimes I'd listen to pocket whatever information they had in the back of my brain for future reference, but they never divulged any super useful information and I had stopped lifting for years at that point anyway. Whenever I go into a store I still look up to see where the cameras are.

> I still feel like a chump when I pay 25 euros for something I could easily hide under my phone then put both in my pocket

This really hits home kek. I never have the urge to lift anything anymore (thankfully). I'll just grumble about the price and put it back, or pay for it if it's a real necessity, but seriously! Sometimes I wish I could just lift again. Nothing is stopping me, but I just stopped wanting to do it after I got regular income.

I like dolls, and I watch this youtuber that has thousands and thousands of dolls. She recently got a house that has TWO whole rooms for her dolls. She makes many haul videos a week. She sees a doll, and she will buy it even if she already has 10 of them. At least this is thrifting, but she buys many dolls brand new in multiple copies just because they have miniscule factory differences. I love her, she has the money (and autism, like legitimately) and it's what she loves, but her stuff makes me feel nauseous some time. This video is 4 months old and her collection have grown a LOT since then.

It's also a healthy mix of old and young dressing like this. NYC has always been full of unique styles though. I saw an entire family dressed only about one degree more normal than what is displayed in that YT video. mom, dad, and kids kek. I'm in my mid 30s and used to pour over FRUiTS magazine from Japan, and at least attempt to dress that way in the early 2000s. But it's too time consuming and now I'm an adult who needs to look normal for work. I think that's the route most adults go. Zoomers will grow out of it.

Doll consooming can snowball easily because there are so many options out there. I feel bad for her because buying on this level really indicates something is up.

I've been reading every thread for the past months and you nonas really helped me realize that my anime shit is very retarded. Of course I'm nowhere near a hoarder, but I had 4 big sanrio plushies sitting on my shelf above my bed for months without me even touching them. It's been years since I put them there and only washed them twice! Those dust collectors are nothing but nasty at this point. Touching them is very unpleasant and I can't believe I didn't realize how bad it was sooner. I'm cleaning them thorougly and giving them away to my little nieces.

Perfumes and body sprays. I've been on a long search for "the one", but I don't think I would ever find it. I have many that I enjoy and will rotate depending on mood, but I don't really have a signature. So I guess that's what keeps the buying going. I'll find a perfume/body spray I like, but then get tired of it or find a better one. I will say though, I only take up 1 1/2 shelves. I have seen some fragrancefags with tons of bottles, and will literally collect samples (this is especially true for the indie perfume community, if anyone knows about that).

>when i have this item i will be cool
i now tell myself, i am cool for not buying new things. i am cool for saving that money, for not being the hoarder i used to be.
>when i have that item, people will want to be my friend
the people who would only befriend me specifically for that item, would use me for that stuff, or for insincere social status signals, which i hate and probably will not need anyway.
>when i have that other item, i will be hot
there is no end goal of finally being permanently attractive, because hormones fluctuate which makes me look bloated, then pretty, then haggard every month or so. even if i got surgeries and fillers to reduce the hormonal changes' visible effects, i will become a wrinkly old woman eventually. so i should focus on being confident instead.

For me is makeup/skincare.
Aside their cost, a lot of it gets thrown out because it expires and skincare, unless in form of tools like brushes, is basically useless if you have hormone problems.

The real cope is that a 10-step skincare works.

I have an itabag that I've poured a minimum of $300 into and I don't want to get rid of it because I still really love the character. $300 is nothing in the world of itabags but I can't believe I've spend that much on all the shit in this bag kek. It's been built up over the course of like 6 years though. I don't like itabags with nothing but one specific button, I think they're so ugly. I like to go to secondhand shops when I'm in Japan and pour over items and then slowly whittle it down to what I really want, it's like a scavenger hunt.

I will probably keep consooming merch of this character but I've become very selective with what I buy since I have limited space. If it's a rare piece of merch what little sensibilities I have left are thrown out the window and I immediately want it because I'm stupid and rare/limited items just make me freak. I spent $80 on two film strips with him in it fuck me kek

I have a second itabag that I made on a whim with shit I bought off AE. Not as much keychains and I just have it cos it's one of those cute bookbags with a heart window. I might get rid of the keychains but keep the bag since bookbags are better for my back. My main itabag is a tote bag so I seldom use it outside of cons partly because I'm embarrassed and partly because I try not to use totes anyway.

Not too often! I studied there as a student and that's when I started my bag (spent my scholarship money on merch KEK), then I went back again a year after graduating college. I was planning to go again after 2 years from my last trip but then rona hit. I'd probably aim to go back every 2 or 3 years but I'm probably gonna start alternating it with trips elsewhere. I love visiting Japan but yes it's a huuuuge consoomerism hell hole. I think most times it's not even buying stuff from stores, it's the game centers in particular are my weakness. I will even admit that I really started to have a problem/addiction to them when I was a student, plus I was at the height of my mental illness at the time two so it was a double whammy combo. Wasted way too much of my scholarship money playing ufo catchers.

That's funny, that's the reverse for me, I got rid of a bunch of games but I really want to keep my consoles so I can still replay the games I really like. However I don't see myself getting more consoles, like when the next gen will be a thing for example.

i got rid of a ton of games too! i think i made like 700 euros by selling my entire ds games collection, and then another 200 by selling a bunch of ps3/4 and switch games. i barely finished any of these games, and i never replayed them either. i wanna keep my handhelds though (including my switch), but i'm just not the type for consoles that connect to the tv screen. i find them chunky and impractical, i guess? when i play on my switch i can easily put it aside and pick it up again later. with the ps4 it takes forever to boot it up, switch the hdmi port, start up the game… it's just sooo annoying. also i'm kinda bad at videogames kek.

I was actually considering getting a PS4 for specific games but I'm not getting one after all. Or at least not now. I also play the Switch only on handheld mode because it's way more comfortable. I made a lot of money selling games but I think I could have made as much as you did if I sold everything by myself instead of "just" selling like half of my games to a retro game store. But at the time I want a fast way to sell my stuff and selling things yourself one by one can take time. I couldn't play games these past few months because of work and turned on my Switch for the first time in 3 months yesterday, I went to that retro game store today and didn't find any interesting game so I think that's a sign I need to calm the fuck down and play the games in my backlog first kek. I got rid of most of my backlog by playing games for a few hours and not being hooked just yet so I sold them and I only have like 10 games I know I'll like in my backlog.

Feel similarly. The only current gen system I have is a switch and I like it but I mostly play PS2 and Dreamcast. There are so many old games available with such better quality storylines and concepts (imo) that I don't need anything else. Downside is the price, but they can easily be emulated and collected that way. Lucky enough to have a lot of old PS1/2 games still.

Anything newer I'll just have to watch a silent LP because I'm not comfortable paying rent prices for a system and $60+ for each game.

I have a clothing hoard acquired over years of impulse buying and don't wear most of it. I put my most worn clothes in the drawers and haven't touched my closet ever since (it's been 2 months).

You've reminded why I quit buying gaming consoles and game exclusively on pc now. I really detest having physical copies of games or being forced to change my hardware every gen.

Sure you can't sell your games, but the games are cheap as fuck and I usually only play mmos that haves 100s+ of hours worth of content which balances out the cost imo.

Is anyone else a nail polish consoomer? I just realized today after having to buy a second acrylic shelf for my polishes that I might be a consoomer. I threw out all the colors that I don't wear or are so old that the formula is gross and separating and I feel so much better. I love doing my nails and it's a peaceful activity for me but there's no reason to have like 80+ nail polishes.I feel like there's probably some major consoomers on one of the many reddit communities for nails.

I switched to gel recently and it pretty much ended my nail polish consooming. I used to constantly buy regular polish from the bargain bin based on the colour because there are only a few colours I really like to wear, but ofc the quality would vary a tonne so half the time I'd end up with streaky, watery crap I never wanted to use. Then I'd buy more in the same colour hoping for a nicer consistency and keep all the shitty ones 'just in case'. Gel quality is pretty uniform so I don't have to keep trying different types, and it's too expensive for me to buy regularly.

My first thought watching the video was this bird was very badly behaved. My parrot never was that bad and I trained him when I was 7. If you properly care for them, they'll "dookie" in their cage, with the occasional outside of it. That's relative though, they do drop a LOT. It doesn't stink (relative to cats or dogs) unless you don't clean it. It smells like nothing, maybe slightly like the seeds they eat. You need to clean the cage every 3 days or it will smell like the bird equivalent of unbathed dog, oily seeds, and slightly fishy.

i think part of it also is how much the things they do but are plastic shitcrap. plastic sheets with pretty pictures of the sky, you could.. print those out yourself. pinterest exists. and then you have exactly what you want. washi tape.. you can buy in person for much easier and cheaper. cheap daiso/dollar store quality stationary probably being sold for 500% of retail price, plus shipping. and vintage paperscraps, you can get mass lots of online pretty cheap. to me it's not that these people buy it, it's that they also buy the most hollow, soulless version possible, when a "better"/less consoomy version is almost equal effort, aside from having to make choices about what you personally like.

I actually find putting posters up of anime you don't even watch weirder than putting store bought pictures in your journal. One thing is supposed to be a piece of content the other is literally just decor. Sure, in the traditional sense this kind of "journaling" is souless but I think nowadays bujo is more of a stickerbook than anything else, it's just a way to make it look more grown up and like it has any purpose. They are more like the planner hobby which is entirely about decorating and not actually planning much kek. Must be a hobby like decoden or blinging, consooming and piling up "pretty" things.
Meanwhile shit like owning band shirts of things you don't listen to or anime figures and posters of things you haven't even watched because the character is pretty or popular weirds me out, it's the autist in me.

IMO the issue is the name. Journaling has traditionally been about writing and scrap books were made with actual paper scraps. If I bought stickers to fill my 'scrap book' with it isn't really a scrap book, I'm not cleverly repurposing what would have otherwise been trash. Old scrapbooks can be interesting because they inform you about the owner and the time period they lived in, modern 'scrap books' do not. But I don't have an issue with people calling them collage journals.

The person in the video said “bullet journalling” so you’d think they would want to do drawings or use stickers related to what they did that day. Unless they work in an antique store, I doubt they do many victoriana related things.

These threads really peaked me in my consoomerism habits, thanks so much for them. I was never as bad as some of these posted here but I did (and do) have a problem with hording things I never use because I still hold onto the idea that I could use them one day, but never do. It sucks knowing you spent money on something but it's worse to keep it around if it will never be used. I'm also learning to let go of possessions I've had for a long time during some of my phases I'm over now, it was nice to have merch of some things I liked in the past but I've outgrown a lot of it and it's unnessicary to hold onto that stuff. I can let myself be happy I was into it for a while and move on. I always carry the thought of 'If I moved again, how much of this do I want to take with me?' and that also helps me keep the clutter down.

This pisses me off so much because this is actually from Goodwill's auction site. It's basically Goodwill's version of eBay and anything good or 'valuable' goes here first so nothing cool ever gets sent to the store. They want people to bid on stuff like this to make the biggest profits possible even though everything they get in is free (for them) I really hate how thirfting has become a trend and brought up the prices of everything donated when you used to be able to find neat gems or be able to upcycle for cheap.

I'll never understand why people are obsessed with collecting volumes of manga they've never read or even finished, I guess collecting volumes in of itself is what keeps people buying to have a 'complete set'. Its the same with books, why keep an entire bookshelf of books for the ~aesthetic~ if you aren't actually enjoying reading through them? Not to bash people who own books or manga they do enjoy, I think if you have a series you read often or always come back to those are okay to keep.

>>1246249
I'm someone who still enjoys console gaming, so I still have a lot of physical games. It's always hard to find copies of older good games though, because they are always in demand for collections. And there are quite a few retro PS2 games I've been wanting to get around to playing, but they are just as expensive if not more to get secondhand and I'm paranoid to even use my PS2 that often in case it dies on me. Honestly if you want to feel like you still have your collection but don't want to keep the physical games you could digitize your collection by looking for roms and an emulator There's even ways to rip the time from your CDs though I don't know how to do that

Then they buy a plastic holder just to put all the milk bottles in line, even though you can already line them up without a plastic divider. What kind of universe do these people live in?

Luckily there is a local thrift shop near me that does still have good deals, but most of it is grandma's house tier stuff (which I do actually like) And I got some mugs there for 50 cents!

I really feel the urge to start a collection. I’m not sure which direction but i saw a video on Instagram about a girl showing her vintage toy collection and it made me so jealous. They’re really cute and i think it’s really cool to have a passion for something like this.
Last year i started buying vintage photography but i realized it doesn’t make sense to put them on a shelf or so because they will lose colour so i stopped. Maybe i could start a photo album?

My Nigel and I share a bookshelf. it has manga, dvds and my anime figs/plush. Every time we go to a thrift shop/ used media store he comes home with a few dvds and I 1-2 manga (depends if there's anything I want). What started as a mostly somewhat filled shelf has now turned into one where my anime figures can't properly be displayed and his dvds have taken over. We just got this bookshelf in April lol.

That makes sense for video games when servers shut down and you can't download games legally anymore for "old" consoles. The e-shop for the 3ds in Japan is already shut down and this will be the case soon in NA and Europe so you either need to have physical copies and download patches now, to download games and DLCs until early 2023, or to pirate everything soon to play 3ds games. But I've never seen the equivalent for e-books, movies, series, music, etc.

tbh all rooms of any popular zoomer aesthetic are scarily similar, it's bizarre how consistently certain elements appear in so many girls rooms. I've spent some time on pinterest lately (I never used to so maybe I'm out of the loop), I like the korean sorta style but it's like… every single room has a tablet on a little easel with anime wallpaper, keyboards with round keys, flower cushions, clear plastic folding chairs, pastel checkered rugs, it's cute but are these mfs all shopping at the exact same place? Is it all from amazon?

Now that I think about it it does make sense. 15 years ago the internet wasn't easily accessible to everyone (smartphones were a luxury and you couldn't eveb download apps in the mid 2000s, and not everyone had a pad or computer at home with a good internet connection), social media as we know them now were new and not as mainstream as now, you'd be less exposed to pictures like the one you postes and you'd have less opportunities to buy less stuff so you had to make do with whatever you could find in physical stores, anime cons, online if you could really afford it, and posters were usually found in magazines or sold in concerts, while now I see posters for a lot of bands or series in my country's equivalent of Barnes or whatever it is. Now ads online are more present than ever because most young adults and teens use smartphones and it's way harder to block ads on apps, and popular youtube and tiktok videos ARE ads, you can easily buy what you want online and where I live we have more physical stores now than a decade ago that sell merchs instead of just manga and maybe some anime DVDs.

The similarities stems from all of them getting their items majority from aliexpress or dropshipping services that source from ali. Just like when jfashion was blowing up on tumblr, they all have carrds with affiliate links to these kaweewee dropshipping sites that all sell the same bullshit with minor variations wether its for the neon gamur grill, sanriohag dreamcore weeb (as a sanriohag myself, gomen) , kfag light academic weeb and so on.
Teens and adults alike can now adopt an aesthetic for below half the price it would have cost them before and minimal to no real dedication or time is needed to do that. So people see all these aesthetic videos, find the links easy and spend like less than 100$ to, for example, get that kfag aesthetic, stuff like reduced accessibility to consoom shit can positively impact a persons sense of self cause they have to improvise and thereby challenge what they really like about the aesthetic and are prompted to be more selective about what they purchase to fulfill said aesthetic.

Is it just me or has even AliExpress become homogenous af? I used it a lot like 5-10 years ago and even though I was buying cheap kawaii crap, I always felt like a had a tonne of options for cheap kawaii crap. It took some creative sorting/searching since ofc the same stuff would be sold everywhere and the same stock photos used, but it was easy enough to find more unique things.

Its visually become homogenous due to the massive consoom wave of prepackaged aesthetics so the algorithms mixed with several sellers selling the same thing with the same tags is what you see on the first pages/suggestions. Now ali isn't a place you can casually browse anymore if you want items that aren't being blasted on social media, you kinda have to gain the search engine and most of the time scroll past the first pages of suggestions, that is in part to blame on bots, ali is rife with sellers having 6 different shops selling the same things sorta like how social media has 5000 users shilling the same copypaste office/bedrooms etc

Ever since I started becoming aware of how malevolent consumerism is, It’s been more and more difficult to go shopping with my friends without wanting to say some shit about waste and materialism and ruining their fun. It’s sad to watch them freak out over anything and everything they see that has a brand they like plastered on it. I go the mall and see bins of the poorest quality clothes at Forever 21, the ugliest merchandise selling for exorbitant prices at Hot Topic. Companies raking in money from idiot consoomers who can’t think for themselves and fall for every single marketing tactic. I watch my friends mass-order clothes off Shein and purchase funkos and records and figurines on a whim with no point to any of their purchases.

I constantly look at the stupid trash I bought in the past and think about how much I regret buying some shitty object that’ll end up in a landfill someday, just because I wanted a little shopping buzz. I wish I could make my friends aware that branding means nothing and that they don’t need the junk that they’re blowing money on. To conclude, if I receive one more ugly ass squishmallow as a gift I’m going to go ape.

The glass cases keep away dust, so you don't need to dust your figures as often as if you would keep them in the open. It's practically essential if you have loads of figures, since you don't have the time to dust figures for hours on a weekly basis.

This, oh my god.
In the last 10ish years, a lot of stores dropped their concept, hell, fucking gamestop sells funko pops now!
I'm an alt 2000s kid, I remember being upset I didn't have my own money to buy stuff from Hot Topic or other alt stores and now it's just down to retarded prints and shein copies (or shein rebranded). In general, the clothing industry is making these fugly boxy fit-genderless-crop-style clothes and I hate them. Boxy fits makes my body look like a fridge since I'm pear shaped and I hate it so much, I basically only thrift but now thrift became a trend too so the prices are going up I hate it here!!!

I don't see any of that stuff personally, it's school holidays atm so I'm seeing an excess of teenagers in my local shops and they're almost exclusively wearing plain, baggy 90s skater/grunge stuff. I'm actually a little shocked at how subdued and sensible fashion is right now, it's like they haven't tried to dress cute at all but you can tell by the cuts and the consistency in how girls dress that it's a trend.

Consoomerism is literally ruining consumerism. I'm so sick of seeing stupid food and entertainment brands just plastered eye bleachingly over every article of clothing. Retarded Disney everything slapped on everything, hot topic shoving every basic anime merch in your face or cringey "kawaii" brands like pusheen which is just a new age hello kitty with cheaper shit. Or "nostalgic" things aka just old Nickelodeon and cartoon network shows. I remember how bad doctor who fans were too since all of them had the same stupid phone booth plastered over everything they owned. Sure I like watching a good TV series as much as the next guy but I don't want it to be everything I see when I shop.

Do these people actually even like these shows that much or do they just buy the things all because it's so prevalent everywhere?

I don't know if it would work with your friends, but it might help to be an example of choosing to not to mindlessly consume. I was first inspired by a friend who always opted to be more green and environmentally friendly, buying things that would last and were good quality. From there it slowly grew until now where I reject mindless consumption and prizing being materialistic as if it's a good personality trait and not a glaring fault. In turn my friends have been trying to be more mindful too. I can't help but indulge on occasion, but it doesn't have to be 0 or 100. I think the goal is to just get people to realize that wants aren't needs and material items should not take priority in anyone's life. Maybe tell them that you would rather opt for a dinner or an outing as a gift in the future because you just don't really want material gifts anymore.

I don't know if Primark is in many countries but I hate how primark is basically becoming the disney store now. My nearest primark is heavily taken up by disney pjs, disney purses, disney hairbrushes, disney homeware, then there's looney tunes, friends (the show) care bears, marvel. It takes up alot of the store and somewhat cancels out what was always the main appeal of primark.. the really low pricepoint. So much stuff is licensed and marked up to reflect it the licensing cost and it's also just.. a but much to look at. It makes the store seem like it's aimed at younger and younger people. The whole place is starting to look like one big kids section.

Like can I buy a hairbrush that doesn't have mickey mouse ears on it? Can I find a cheap lil purse that isn't also mickey mouse themed? Why does everything need a cartoon character on it in an adults section? A few years ago primark was swamped with Harry Potter shit and that's pretty much all gone now lol. Move over harry potter and make more room for yet another set of mickey mouse pjs!

I think the strategy here is: fill everything with disney branded merch so when you need to buy your basic pjs you will have to buy the mickey ones almost by force.

because george lucas is a marketing genius. he got the product rights to star wars for nothing and then slapped the brand on everything and made billions. adults are more likely to have grown up with star wars and have more money.

if you watch star wars now as an adult it's not good but i don't think the original movies were completely aimed at little boys as chunks of the empire strikes back (poster and dialogue) are lifted straight out of gone with the wind, plus the whole incest thing. the first original one is pretty generic and kiddyish though

Reading this thread has made me want to check up on a youtuber I watched in my peak "living vicariously through other people's consoom habits" stage a few years ago. Her channel was focused on squishy/toy reviews and unboxing collectable items, and I discovered that she made a video a few months ago talking about how she wanted to step back from the constant collecting & possibly purge her collection in favor of healing and finding better coping mechanisms, to which I say good for her! For reference, this is the official shelf tour she posted in 2018, though between then and now her collection had only gotten bigger.

I would have had a panic attack if I were you. Last time I went abroad the only things I took with me were the very few clothes that fit me and that I was wearing regularly so if I were in your shoes I would have been in some deep shit because now I have an even harder time finding things my size that don't look hideous, unless I buy online and pray. I always keep some clothes in a luggage I keep on me at all times when taking the plane just because of lost luggage.

Thank you guys for the replies. It's been inconvenient going to grab a a pair of shoes or something only to realise I don't have it but luckily it was nothing too severe. Another woman on my flight lost her luggage and we kept in contact, they returned it to her and everything had been stolen. Someone at the airport had replaced it with cases of water. The airline or insurance won't do piss all to compensate her and she had gifts from living abroad for 6 months. I think I'll definitely take your advice and keep a few pairs of clothes on my person at all times.

It's a lesson learned on my end. Makes you realise how easily you can be stripped of possessions. It's not the end of the world, but it just sucks knowing I've lost gifts that I can't go back and replace.

why do you want it, and how long have you thought about? if you think it will help you walk more see if you can buy a cheap knock off or one secondhand. if you already don't excercise much it's not magically going to do anything helpful or make you healthier.

How do you get bang for your buck with proxies and the insane shipping? I buy everything locally from anime and video game stores by me but some things I think I have to ship overseas (anime rugs, accessories, scrolls, electronics, etc.) I want to make it worth the shipping, you know? Paying $80+ for shipping and import over a $25 dollar item feels dumb but I don't want to drop $500 either. I'm not a bankrolled NEET I have to work full time and pay bills so I can't do this often.

This. My friend bought her Apple Watch to “force” herself to workout. Surprise it didn’t work, but now she can play fruit ninja on her wrist instead of on her phone while not working out. On the other side of that coin, I bought an expensive Garmin watch even though I already had a Fitbit, thinking it would make me a better/more efficient runner. It didn’t, because it didn’t offer anything I wasn’t already using between my Fitbit and the Nike running app. That said I do like my Fitbit Versa 2, and it’s lasted me almost 3 years now? The app is decently useful and is fully integrated with MFP if you count calories or track your weight and it keeps a historical record of everything with no data expiration as far as I know, so I can see what my average heart rate was on this day 7 years ago from the Fitbit I had before this one. That might be a turnoff for some people due to privacy concerns though.

Anons itt are saying your phone can do the same thing, but if you keep your phone in your purse or whatever its not gonna do shit. I have an apple watch and I like it but for it to be useful you need to actually work out, go for walks, etc. If it's something that will motivate you to get your steps in or get a good night's sleep then I say go for it. If you want it just to have it and you're gonna stay sedentary then don't bother. I think fitbits aren't as accurate as other smart watches but it all depends on your budget I guess.

Nonnas, how do I know if a person on Ebay is not a scammer?
I want to get a birthday gift which would be a limited edition of an old, niche visual novel, I surprisingly found some sellers that do sell it nearby, which made me think 'its too good to be true'. Also I thought of getting an artbook because I love and admire the artist. The seller ratings seem good, but I am still worried of throwing the money into thin air. Would it be stupid to ask the sellers for more proofs that they own the x-thing?

No. 1286546

>>1286512
There's no way of knowing for sure, trusting the reviews is best you can do. It wouldn't hurt to ask for more photos of the thing you want to buy especially if it's unique / rare; I had a buyer ask for that once and it didn't feel weird at all, I'm sure they would be happy to reassure you.

No. 1287187

>>1286512
Paypal will usually refund you if they're a scammer, as long as you don't pay them through friends and family. If they ask you to do that, run. Always open a dispute if you don't get the item or if it's different to what was advertised. I only had an issue with a seller once and got my money back.

There's a chance it's not an original copy but a bootleg print. Depends if you want the original or are fine with having the thing but not a legitimate one. Happened to me once with a book on ebay, but I only wanted the text so I didn't care it was bootleg printing.

I'm not very experienced with buying limited edition items but ebay does have pretty good buyer protection. If anything you could always file a claim and get your money back. I'm not too sure about preventative measures though, I know some sellers can be dodgey. But if their reviews look good I think you might be fine.

If you're unsure about getting it from eBay you could always use a proxy and buy it from Japan. Sites like Mandarake, Suruga-ya, JP Mercari, or Yahoo Auctions may carry it.
I've stopped buying on eBay ever since I found I could always get it for cheaper when using a proxy. The pricing on these sites are always significantly lower than when they're listed on English websites.
For example: $180 vs ¥3,000 (About $22)

Do people really shop on Instagram? I've never actually touched the Insta shopping feature. It's a mess and horribly overpriced. I keep getting recommended rings in the $18k range and they're so bland I wouldn't pay more than scrap weight in their metals. For advertising personal homemade things that link to Etsy, sure. I just use the Etsy search feature though. Instagram has become unbearable now that it's a pastel goth dropship catalog, rather than family and travel photos with terrible sepia filters and student art. The algorithm is so far from my taste it's insane, and when you don't really follow anyone, you get recommended random Indian people and CP that's days old and still hasn't been taken down, despite thousands of comments/likes.

I am curious because I never ordered any kitchen-related stuff there. I understand AliExpress items look like shit, but what about their safety?

So I work at GameStop part time during school, and I just couldn't believe the amount of consooming my coworkers and clients do. I cannot fathom it, it's fucking disgusting. The amount of Funkpops they have.. we are a small ass GS too, yet my coworkers just buy buy buy. You don't even get a true discount too. We have the most useless junk gathering dust, and I am only 5 shifts in and I have seen regulars. REGULARS.

Again, ignoring the fact that the anon was insulting the girls because of it. She wasn't just uwu so aware now~ she was clearly venting her jealousy. There is a difference but you're obviously to dense to realize it.

>>1310615
Yeah, most people. But as the other anon said before there's clearly some jealous poorfags here. There's no way that most in this thread with free access to their absent father's credit card would abstain from using it simply because consumerism is bad. Get real.

I wouldn't say shit if they were stupid teenagers but theyre all 21+, it's so strange. Tumblr aesthetic and -core culture is stripping so many people of their individuality.

I work in a very soccer mum suburban area so mainly kids coming in thinking we are a daycare, touching things and the casual gamer just buying game and go. Shit goes messy when you've got a fanboy screeching over a particular thing like Sonic or Disney and buying 5000 things of that series. I only work once a week, sometimes twice so I haven't encountered anyone yet, but I heard stories from my coworker who has told me about people who come here.

I worked in my country's equivalent of Gamestop for a couple of years during college, and it was exactly how you'd imagine it to be kek. It didn't help that it was in a college town, but random moids would constantly come in to try and flirt with me or my one other female coworker, or just try to ogle us in the summer when we were wearing shorts and shit. They'd constantly try to quiz us on whatever games we said we like (a couple were listed on our nametag for whatever fucking reason), and sometimes if we were trying to help them with something they'd ask for a male worker instead. Plus I had one moid look me up on Facebook after I sold him a couple of shitty funko pops and try to ask me out. It was creepy as fuck because our nametags only had our first names on them and my Facebook page doesn't have any public pictures of me.

I’ve been watching a lot of those room makeover videos where it’s all the same 10 Korean staples and everything is white and sterile over and over to the point that my brain feels like it’s turning to mush. They’re all the same and it isn’t even something I’m interested in aesthetically beyond the satisfaction of it. I think there’s mk ultra subliminal messages in that animal crossing ass background music that is telling me to disintegrate into my floor.

kek i remember following her a few years ago. at that point she was already e-dating her bf without ever having met up irl. she always talked about saving up money "to finally meet him" while buying frivolous shit all the time. i checked her twitter and it seems like they still haven't met in all these years. i guess it's nice to have someone else supporting your addiction.

sounds like a bleak life to still live at home at 30, working a minimum wage job just to buy plastic shit and makeup every single day. picrel is some small drama from back then https://twitter.com/pampurins/status/1166819922292498432

i have massive urge to buy another set of paints despite owning almost unused jars of same paint, though missing few colors, while not using it that much to other mediums I usually work in. i actually tossed it few months ago into my basket and i waited but i still have massive urge to buy them, despite knowing I won't use them anyway. don't know what to do anons, any help?

art supplies are my worst consoomer habit, i always get something (though with paper it's justified since prices go up and I've ran out of my stash almost completely) but I'm trying to use digital for some steps of process to save paper. I stopped getting yarn or fabrics until I finish blanket from all mismatched yarns I got over the years (newer meant for proper project in the end, just accumulated randomly) but art supplies are still a problem.

Sounds like you might be bored. Do you mainly work in paints? Try another medium or work though the paints you have. If you don’t have the paints you lack (and don’t need to double up) then there’s no need to spend that much. Maybe just sketch a ton or practice swatching the paints you to have, just as a warmup.
Not buying yarn and whatnot is a good start, I understand that too. I had to cut back my horde after getting into knitting and crocheting the past few years.

NTA it's definitely appealing, but evidently it appeals to so many people that they all get carbon copies of the exact same room and it stops looking so great once you realize that.

I do like the asian style room trends because they fill a niche for people with lower budgets though. Interior design inspo is often like, expensive mansions with extravagant luxury furniture and it looks beautiful but you could never afford it or imitate it, and they look barely used. Whereas with korean rooms they're usually studio apartments with cheap but cute and comfy furniture and decor. It's way more accessible and relatable, and it looks properly lived in. I just wish they wouldn't all use the literal exact same items lmao.

It’s so cluttered with stuff you can’t even see half the shit. It would look way better with like 1/10 the items so you could actually see them and half arent hidden behind other shit that looks exactly the same. At what point is it you liking a cute decor piece vs feeling you need to validate your trendy e-girl adjacent interests to the Internet via merch purchases.

Yeah it really is that homogenous in Korea, I’ve seen many accounts of Korean women saying that since it’s a small country trends are a big real and people rush to buy the exact same things as each other. It’s very clean and nice looking, it’s just all the exact same so the fact that I’ve watched so many doesn’t even make sense and is a testament to my declining brain functioning.

Thanks for ideas, nona! I actually prefer to avoid swatching for now since some of my paints ended up being mostly used for it already and i did mixing charts before. I now sketch more on copy paper or in digital, it feels good right now.

Though it's hard and I'm really tempted. 50ml jars of gouache i got are not portable if i wish to go outside and paint and would love tubes, but i don't think i'll ever do this anyway. Will wait more but probably will toss some colors that I can't mix but need (no bright pink or blue) and I ran out of few colors I had for few years already.

I'm proud i didn't get any other yarn for almost a year now, though i want to get one or two skeins (100g of yarn) of some quality woolen or cotton yarns to swatch them and see if i like them. buy only when i will have properly planned project. really want to make own sweaters to replace my old fast fashion ones that are in really bad state. i have problem with clothes and second hand stores in my city are shit, vintage resale sites are too expensive sometimes so i want to make something myself that will last me long time, will look timeless and nice in more muted colors.

You’re welcome. I hope it helps. Have you tried making a small palette with your gouache? A friend of mine gave me a sample of her watercolors (they’re called dots) and I’m sure you could do it with gouache too. They looked like this https://www.scratchmadejournal.com/blog/shopping-watercolor-samples-and-dot-sets
I found a gouache example too

What got me into anti consumerism is actually one of my personal lolcows who I met irl years ago.

She didn't have a job at the time and just sponged off her boyfriend her aesthetic was very much standard disney/marvel/zelda generic shit. She had a huge collection of the loungefly Disney bags at one point but when he dumped her (cos she refused to get a job and he was sick of supporting her) she ended up selling a bunch of shit.

She then latched onto an online friend of hers (who had had a thing for her since forever), claimed that she'd always been in love with him, and moved countries to be with him kek. Now she's claiming she's disabled (standard eds/pots/autism/adhd/depression shit.. all of which is a lie) and completely lives off of her now fiancé's dime as he works in tech. Her insta is now "cottagecore"/plants with a bunch of standard gamer/plush merch thrown in, but seeing her waste so much of someone else's money in a month really put me off having too much stuff. Everything is about how things make her feel better and how it has a deep meaning to her when its all just material junk that she'll throw or sell sooner or later.
