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.

Buying junk besides shelter, food, and water only gives momentary pleasure in the male mind, they will never understand the joys of furnishing your room and entire home to look aesthetically pleasing and comforting. I’ve seen people rate other people’s rooms and they look so ugly and are always sprawled with bland posters of consoomer shows and music and monotone colors with no regard for color cohesion. I hate this form of consumerism you can just tell their outfits are super ugly and they’re culture vultures. It reminds me of asylum patients and prisoners who would carve in tally marks into the walls only they replaced the tally marks with these hideous “decorations”
Have you anons noticed the amount of moids who buy the shit out of vtuber merch (eg Hololive)? I am surrounded by them. They would buy a birthday pack of a streamer who they dont even watch, and then pay 150 + 20-50 shipping to it and later duties because they got it from Asia.>>1339347
Probably the cleanest table of a vidya addicted moid ive ever seen. Usually they have a lot of foodcrumbs and other crap they cant be bothered to clean, wow.

I will never understand people who collect funko pops. This soulless stare and freaking uniformity of designs. Why.
Also could never understand collecting things just for the sake of having them, but I don't judge. I just personally have never been thrilled about collecting something, except for some series of books maybe but it doesn't really count I guess.
I am a weeb artist and these types still seem to be better than the genshinfags that i met. >>1339360

Confession time, I managed to get a moid friend I hooked up with to consoom anime figures. He’s an asshole so him focusing on wasting his money on figures from shows he doesn’t even watch makes my heart smile. He can’t talk to girls anymore because he’s such a coomer and has a plastic lady hoard. Obv I stopped talking to him. Bad for the environment? Yeah. I didn’t have to hear about his shitty behavior towards women? Great, hope his bloodline is ended from having a waifu instead of treating his gfs like shit.

fuck, this is so true. this girl i know (friend of a friend, basically) works at a merchandise store in our town and told us this wild as fuck story. they had a deadpool statue in their store (like picrel) which costs like 2000 bucks and one day a guy actually came in and bought it. paid for it and then left because he didn't have his car with him. they put a "sold" sign on it and that was it. MONTHS pass and deadpool is not getting picked up. after almost a year he finally comes into the store and tells them that his gf and he broke up because she was upset that he bought this life size deadpool statue. instead of, you know, coming back immediately and asking for his money, he actually went through weeks of arguing with her because that deadpool statue was so much more important to him. then he had to move out, find a new apartment, etc, and completely FORGOT about fucking deadpool. almost a YEAR later he remembered to finally come back to the store. unfortunately the store owner is way too nice and gave him back his money. i think deadpool is still in that store, too. moids really are failed abortions.

I may be venting here, but it irks me that my gay furry older brother is a consoomer for continuously buying crap that keeps filling up his entire room which is also a master bedroom. Some trash and boxes here and there, a closet that's hard to walk around, a filthy bathroom and his drawer sitting outside with piles of clothes on it. He buys shit like wolf stuff, Funko Pops, plushies, figures, statues, t-shirts, etc. mostly of animal/monster characters or whatever the fuck is on sale or "a good price/deal." Don't get me wrong, I like figures and plushies too, but only if I truly love and desire them. I wouldn't be buying random hot male anime figures or random Pokemon/Sanrio plushies just because they're simply cute. There's a limit to where it feels like it's too much as if it consumes and buries you. Plus it's a pain in the ass to move and clean up stuff. I just don't understand how he can keep this up especially telling him that it's concerning and if he needs any help cleaning, but he just brushes it off and says it's none of my concern. He did say that when he grows old he'll sell and gain a profit out of them since its prices and rarity will most likely go up. Whenever he comes home with something new I just have to hide my disappointment in him while he rambles on about finding good prices, getting good deals and his long trips for shit he's looking to buy. Also, he had given me Funko Pops before or stuff that I didn't ask for which I boxed them up and hid them away in my closet saying that I'm trying to make some space in my room.

How to keep from being a consoomer?
Picrel, I like perfumes. Most of my fixations before have been actual, material hobbies, such as writing, art, or animal keeping. This is the first time I've been insane about something that you can really only just… buy. Well, buy and read about. I try to stay away from buying full bottles, I already regret doing that once even if it was a very good deal. This thread helps keep me in check too.

I had this stupid Mugler fixation when I was in my early teens, and even though I barely made money from my part time job (I never got money from anything else, was in poverty) I spent it on Mugler perfumes that smelled terrible. I would get the angel powder puffs, the roller balls, etc. I can tell you that outside of the lotions and the powder puff I NEVER used them because the smell was strong and abhorrent and they became nothing more than cool looking paper weights that were more of a thorn in my side. If anything, see if you can find miniature bottle samples that mimic the larger bottles. Not sure if this is still common anymore, but that beats wasting all your money on a full sized bottle of designer chemicals. You can kill two birds one stone—they’re very beautiful, and they serve the main function as satisfying little trinkets. You don’t need tons of perfume anyways, you know?

What level of bugman is this? Incredible
i know what you mean nonny
, i also have an older brother who stays in the master bedroom of the house and it's just filled with toys and action figures, some still in their shipping boxes. the ones which have actually been opened are mostly displayed on shelves and countertops but with a thick layer of dust on them. no idea what he's planning to do with them, but i live in a really hot climate and it's not great for whatever material some of these things are made of. i've got a handful of figures myself but they're over a decade old at this point and have yellowed and degraded in places.
he also gives me gashapon figures from a series i used to love as a kid, and while i appreciate the sentiment, i haven't kept up with the series at all as an adult and haven't cared about it for a long time but i just accept them out of politeness and hide them in a cabinet or something.

g1 collector here! i will say that the more u get into the hobby u more u realize that the cheapest ones are just very common.. if u are into the babies go for it bc they are some of the cheapest ones. the twin ones especially are fuckin adorable. the big brother ponies especially are very expensive ($75ish per) so i would just stick to what u like the most if u do get into it.. i would also recommend not worrying about FOMO because even now they are still being sold left and right for pretty cheap. bargain over getting new object!! that advice is for pretty much all gens, g3 is worth looking into if u havent. i love that style n they are very very cheap if u like collecting ponies

Pic stolen from the last thread, because it encapsulates what bewilders me about social media collectors. For the price of all these almost identical things, a person could buy several quality bjds, or a dozen Pullips, that these were obviously based on. And those wouldn't be riddled with paint/quality defects, would look 100x nicer, and not have the eyelashes molded into the eyeballs. No doll sold at Walmart is worth owning over $1000 of it. I can understand teenagers and broke people buying a few of them, but there are fully grown adults out there who splurge hundreds of dollars a month at Target and Walmart, and then brag online. I wouldn't take a dozen modern Barbies or Monster Highs if they were handing them out for free.
If you never get around to customizing them, sell them on Etsy. People sell ratchet Monster High dolls and their parts to make customs. I'm sure ponies are no exception.>>1344041
Honestly, I love these dolls, I think they're so cute, but they do have a bit of a same-face and the designs can be repetitive. Wish they just had interchangeable bases. Pick your eye colors, skin tone, and wigs like bjds, selling outfits separately. I mostly like their clothes. One doll would suffice. This is why I like Blythes, but am a poorfag.

I actually collected monster high dolls. I always hated the gel seeping into their hair plugs. Seriously people gotta start collecting quality dolls. Maybe when I get a job someday I’ll save up for a bjd or pullip because they’re beautiful.

The glue seepage in MH dolls is frustrating to deal with and hard to clean out. I don’t pity collectors at all because they’re paying top dollar for a faulty product.
Yeah I also followed it for a while since it seemed useful for genuine product reviews, but another thing that happened was that people started posting their toothpaste tubes and handsoap bottles every day, and the mods seemed to have no interest to restrict it to makeup/skincare only. Think I unsubbed at that point.
Just thought about it and even though I never bought makeup to this >>1343786
extent, I did make unnecessary purchases like eyebrow powder, mascara primer, baking powder, and similar, when I consumed a lot of beauty content. Thankfully I've used those up and figured out that I only need about 5 pieces of makeup for a full look. Shit like mascara primer just gave me really thick, clumpy lashes, and eyebrow powder was just priced up eyeshadow.
I used to be like this since i love journaling and bullet journal but remember:
-Most washi tapes, sticky notes, anything made of paper and glue really have a 1-2 yrs of shelf life at most. Anything made of plastic can have a 2-3 yr of shelf life but then it will lose glue.
-Pens also have a best date use, 3-4 years until ink starts to dry. Sure unless they're those cheap kawiwi pens they can be recovered but it's a pain on the ass. Cheap ballpoint pens last very long but i guess your pens aren't those.
- Stickers and paper tend to yellow over time. Depending of quality and storage, may vary from a few months to a few years but still.
-Never had a highlighter to last more than 2 years. The only exception was some stabillo highlighter and that doesn't mean it worked splendid, just that it was usable.
The point is that unless you're a journaling freak, a studygram influencer or someone who relies on paper a lot for job and study stuff, journaling stuff can go a really long way
and if you hoard it, then it would go bad before you had a chance to use it.
All of these dates are based on personal experience so yeah. If you want to preserve something you can use some ziplock bags but then you wouldn't be any diferent to funko losers preserving their shit on the box. Things are meant to be used. I can give tips to control the impulses if you want.

Hey nonnas do you think posting our collection(s) would help us not to consoom so much? Idk, I feel like critiques on/by fellow nonnas would be more productive and carry more weight
post it, I want to see it nonnie
nayrt but considering the lifespan of the item like >>1345520
described is a good thing to do, consider how often you will use the item, will you use it up, will it expire? For online purchases using wishlists/basket has worked for me, if I want something I put it in a wishlist first. I leave it there and don't buy immediately, after few weeks or months it's time to reflect on how much I've wanted or thought of that item during that time. Usually I end up realising I don't actually need it and it would've been an impulse purchase, I remove it from my list/basket and forget about it. For shopping IRL, although inconvenient, using cash might help you. Seeing the money decrease in your wallet, having to go to an ATM before making purchases and having a good visual of what money you are spending can help you reconsider just how important those purchases would be. Hope this came out coherent and somewhat helpful for you anon, would like to hear how other anons deal with wanting to shop/buy on impulse.

AYRT, the frist and most important thing to stop coonsoming in general is to know yourself
so any plastic crap wouldn't do the cut. I will exemplify with notebooks. I hate composition notebooks and binders, i find them useless and annoying. So no matter how cute they're, i pass by them because they just don't work for me. I hate notebooks with loud, annoying colors and designs. I don't care that much about paper but i prefer 100gr> if possible and striped or white paper, and so on. Sorry if no1currs I am trying to detail my own criteria so the journaling anon can use it with herself if she's still here. My point is with all those details, 3/4 of notebooks are useless and tacky for me. Most of my coomsoms were just impulse buys, becoming picky helped me. Yesterday i saw picrel and I thought it was adorable but i only use spiral notebooks so no, i'm not going to buy something i already know that i'm not going to use.
-Another very important detail is that i work on the hypothetical principle that i want to carry out my hobby with me
. If i want to journal in a nice park, i'm not going to bring 3 plastic boxes full of materials kek. Even if i don't end up doing it because i'm lowkey a hikkimori that principle alone makes me pick my most usefull/cute materials and leave the rest, and helps me to weed out the things i didn't like that much for starters I have a medium size backpack that i use for college. Sometimes i use that backpack as a measure for my stationery collection. If it doesn't fit the backpack because is too big or is too full already i stop buying entirely and i concentrate on using what I have
i'm also logical about it, i'm not going to stop bringing a pencilcase so i can put another 10 washi tapes. The idea is that the backpack is funtional
and that i don't throw all my objects there like it was a garbage bag. Maybe this is too stationery focused, but you could limit your colection to a single shelf, an specific place in your room, ect. don't letting your collection dominate your life is key. And if it doesn't fit anymore or/and you want something new it's time to throw, sell or donate things out.
-I always keep the best date use in the back of my mind. (If your ítems don't have a best date use, maybe you could think about the cost of maintaining and preserving your collection?)
-Wishlists don't particularly work with me but i like to plan my buys (always at the end of semester, how i'm going to enjoy my hobby if i'm in the middle of exam period?) and have a preset budget. FOMO is a bitch but none of the shit i buy is a life or death matter, and if isn't available when i can buy and enjoy it them then c'est la vie. There is always new, cute ítems in my hobby specifically. And I think it's like that in most places.

File: 1663884985533.jpg (476.37 KB, 1280x874, aggk sims 4.jpg)
I've suddenly realized I hoard cc for sims 4 lol. Surely it doesn't make me a consoomer in a full sense, I don't pay for any, but it is pretty similar to shopaholism in a sense that it's also a rather compulsive thing that makes me spend a lot of my time (instead of money). And yeah, when I play sims, I usually just build something, but I don't do it that often. And I don't even create some really complicated lots (but I do download bunch of stuff that would come in handy if I suddenly started). I have 65 GB of that crap and you can imagine how long it takes for a game to launch. So I started deleting it little by little but the progress is slow. I guess among other things it's just another form of procrastination for me, something that I can do mindlessly instead of more important stuff but it's a whole another topic.
I wanted to say something else. I just remembered after reading this thread that I've got this feeling few times before that if I did something creative (like drawing) I wouldn't feel the need to look for cool cc and spend hours on decorating a room in the game. It's not that I think it's shameful or completely useless to build an "imaginary house" and I'm not talking about gaming abstinence or something, it's just my personal example, but reading this thread made me think that maybe, in some cases, a compulsive desire to collect beautiful, cute, cool-looking stuff could be cured with the creative activities. Surely you'll need to develop and improve your skills to achieve the desired result, but I guess theoretically it could satisfy those exact aesthetic needs that drive you to collect stuff. Because you don't buy just anything (if you're not some tasteless guy like picrel >>1345945
), you most likely look for something specific, but you're also the only person who could create this thing, the image of which you already have in your head, or something representing this aesthetic you're drawn to. Surely it doesn't work with anything, but with some things I believe it would. And it would be meaningful and more satisfying. That's my theory at least, hope it makes sense.
I thought about it not only because of stupid cc: sometimes I spend hours just LOOKING at certain things and adding them to favourites, wishing I could buy them (I guess it's for the better that I don't have enough money to make all those purchases). But at the same time, I realize I don't really need so much stuff, I wouldn't use it. Like some clothes for example. I just like them aesthetically, I like to look at them, so I conclude it's something about my aesthetic needs that could be satisfied in some other ways. Maybe even going to the theater more often or even walking in nice places (like… botanical garden?) would work actually. It's just that browsing and buying is a much easier and faster solution.
damn my writing is so repetitive, sorry if you read this kek

I haven’t consoomed children’s toys in about 8 years now but holy fuck G3 Lagoona is so fucking ugly. I know they aesthetic they were going for since this pastel mermaid shit is so popular with kids but holy fuck she’s so badly designed. Like not only is she such a departure from her original but it’s also just at a baseline a terrible design. Consoomers eating this new gen up deserve to have their money stolen.

I have few tips on avoiding impulse buying, these are quite specific but oh well:
Sometimes when I find cute line of figures, picrel for example, I'd really like to buy one or two. But these are not for example characters that are especially dear to me, so I know the purchase is not necessary. Instead I just download the promo pictures and "collect" them in a digital format instead! I know it's not the same as physical figure, but it works for me. I have limited buying figures only of characters that are really important for me, and only figs that are good quality, no funko shit allowed.
Second tip is for craft and journaling supplies, I only buy what I cannot make by myself, for example I find pictures from internet and print them on sticker paper and this way I can get 100% unique stickers. Also old magazines and advertisements are goldmine of nice designs, and it's fun to dedicate one afternoon to choosing and cutting your favourite images. When choosing washi tapes it's good to choose a design that is "general" enough, so you can use it on many different projects, that way you are more likely to actually use it.

Monster High collectors deserve to have their money stolen at this point. The fact they have to rewrite the lore to make characters more “woke” from an already diverse brand is insane. All they had to do was make implied gay characters canon. Is the new Clawdeen confirmed to be lesbian or was that hilariously retconned?
File: 1663962937113.png (431.32 KB, 518x478, Sin título.png)
At least the actual doll looks ok even if her cartoon design tries to be woke, pretty much the only difference is that her legs aren't anorexic anymore, her arms and stomach are still pretty thin.
She's the only one from the reboot who got an ok design imo, the rest look terrible. I do miss her original hairstyle and black lipstick though, I feel like they're trying to be cuter now instead of goth/punk-ish, which sucks because that was the cool thing about MH, we already got thousands of cutesy girly dolls.

i don't get people who buy new fidget toys over and over. picrel looks like shit you'd get from a dollar store blind bag that your mom begrudgingly buys you because you whined for long enough. my gender identity having tif coworker got all excited over buying new fidget toys. and i just don't understand why you would need a truck load of shitty plastic stuff? i mean, i'm not completely free of blame because i tend to play with stuff too, but it's stuff like a hair pin or a paper clip or whatever. i just don't get the need to have all this plastic garbage.

Because they are not for autistic people. Small children are buying them because they are the hot thing right now. Personally every time I see those thingies i keep getting reminded of these waffles.
>>1348556> Instead I just download the promo pictures and "collect" them in a digital format
i do that too noona ! i just collect pictures of cute things and just look at them. If i still think about them months or sometimes years later I might buy in but it just makes the purchase even more satisfying.
I also printed a picture of a shrine of my husbando to put on my wall, i didn't spend a penny but i can honor him and just enjoy the aesthetic
Those are for literal kids tbh. I don't trust gender fans or gender cult members, they're often just huge munchies that try to get as many conditions and illnesses as possible to justify being friendless, unnerving losers.
And I get that not everyone stims the same way, but it's too weird that she buys those that are basically just party flavors given to kids, I would bet 30 dollars that she's into "age regression" and "kidcore" shit, so she's basically shoving her fetish down everyone's throats.

Look for "mugyuttori." You'll find a lot of places selling them. They also sell inexpensive knock-off plushies of them on AliExpress. The real plushies were Round1 exclusives in Japan so are pretty difficult to get.
Fragfag here too. It’s so difficult because it’s like a sensory surprise in a shiny pretty bottle! I still have a problem with blind buying travel size ones because I “just gotta know” what they’re like…
Personally rotating my selection on a tray while storing the rest has helped me, when you don’t let yourself use a frag for a few weeks coming back to it can be a whole experience in itself. It’s about finding pleasure in the things you’ve already consoomed.

telling myself while looking for plushes to buy that no matter how much i consoom i can never get my childhood back… sad but i go home and hug my already owned plushies instead!
Nta and I agree with the dumb sanriocore shit. But also I feel like that nonny
wants to collect plushes that aren't sanrio (judging by the piture alone). Idk why, but for some reason, someone getting plushes like those seems more genuine to me than someone getting sanrio shit. Not that sanrio shit cannot be cute but I often tie it to tiktok performative aesthetics instead of genuine love. I'm sure most of the plushes people get nowadays will be forgotten once aesthetics are not relevant anymore.
I have had a genuine love for sanrio & cutesy japan brands in general ever since I was little and it sucks they have become a personality-less e-girl thing now. In a way I'm happy it's now way easier to buy that stuff more easily now instead of always having to rely on japanese proxies, but as you have said, now everyone just buys them because it's trendy and want attention, not because they actually like them.
I don't really know how to explain it. I still love sanrio and I don't care too much of what others think of me, but it's a weird feeling to open any website and see others being carbon copies of eachother. It felt more like a comunity of weird girls before, and now is just… some attention-seker girls with no personality.
My bad I didn't mean to come off like I'm attacking >>1354025
over plush buying, I'm just a bit weirded out how children's toys/things are commonly consumed by and marketed to adults. That anon is right, buying childrens stuff won't make you a kid again.

Won this plush from one of those online crane games. I'm disgusted by the rush it gave me and am actively avoiding going back to it- it's literally gambling.

I used to be super obsessed with toreba before it got really hard. I sold most of my stuff except 3 small mascots, one of which i keep on my desk. It's pompompurin and he's very cute and he motivates me to do work. Oh and that plush was 100% worth it. Maybe only play cranes that offer free plays or something?

That's wise. I've found it's best to play with a friend and take turns, it makes it easier to stop spending money when you're getting sucked in and it's more of an "authentic" arcade feel.
purin fans unite! best boy.
Nona what brand is this? I need it lmao>>1356646
And what brand is this?
File: 1664453944075.png (197.63 KB, 512x512, claw.png)
I used to play toreba. I initially spent way too much but I slowed down and told myself I'd only ever spend leftover phone credit on it (top up credit as I'm not on billpay) Few months back I noticed that the google play store removed it so you have to download it directly from their site to play. And you can't spend phone credit on it anymore. Google has cracked down as its both gambling and appeals to kids. Overall I feel like its a good move. It had gotten harder to win over the years. More expensive to play. More rigged. More tape on the machines etc. They've taken away some of the free plays and shipping is only free if you've already spent over a certain amount in the last 30 days. I feel like they made absolute bank during lockdowns so they're really just milking people dry now. Shipping is still slow in some areas because of covid and their own backlog.
Ngl tho I recently played some other online crane game and I have some prizes on the way. They're only cheapo plushies compared to what toreba has but I'm hours away from any real life arcades and I got my lil rush from winning. The new app I tried is rigged so that you'll win using your initial free plays. Then it says that you need 2 prizes in your basket before it'll ship. The second win is the hard part..

Hey nonny, I am at loss.
I really want to buy this figma, but it costs 99 euro, which is, obviously, ridicilous.
>Why do you need it
I love the artist behind this character with my whole heart. Sadly, she doesn't have any artbooks to sell or any other merch. The shown character will never have any more merch ever again, because the company decided to stop it.
I want to either get the nendroid for a ridicilious price of 75 or a figma which is, in fact, a lot worse, 99 euro worth. I like nendroids a lot more than figmas, and the only thing that makes me want to get the figma more than the nendroid is that the character's face looks more close to the artist's artstyle than the nendroid version.
I want to get one of them, but I don't know which one. And yes, I know that getting a shitty figma for 99 is stupid, hell, i bought a new monitor for the price of 90. But I can't shake the feeling of 'there will never be any more stuff with THIS girl!'. I keep having this feeling that I will miss out on something and regret it, it sucks.
1) do you see yourself still being glad you own this in a year? five? ten? will you still value it as much as other 100€ things you own? look at your past interests and see if you're sure of yourself.
2) manufactured scarcity is a big marketing strategy. while this merch is actually rare, this strategy works because your brain is wired to jump on any occasion to get stuff that's only available in small quantities. try to see if it's just fomo.
there's some dumb, rare shit i've bought that genuinely still makes me happy, and others i've passed on that i barely remember now and i don't think my daily life would be any better with them. your choice, nona

I've never grown out of being into plushies. If I pass by a store window with plushies in it I feel like a 5 year old again with how much I'm drawn to them. I feel dumb sometimes but I think I can link it back to my dad throwing out every last one of my plush when I was about 8. He thought I was too old for them so did it behind my back 'for my own good' Never has a plan backfired so hard.
I used to think like this too, I like this series/creator/character so I want to own this, but I thought about how many belongings I'd accumulate if I bought merch of everything I enjoyed and it changed my state of mind a bit. I enjoy things without spending on them, saving money makes me happy and I won't have to think about getting those items off of my hands in the future. I think online right now there's a lot of emphasis on ''support this creator/small business/etc!!'' and it's just buy, buy, buy. It's worth to consider if that purcase will give you much fulfilment over time. Thinking long term like >>1357112
mentions is very good too.>>1357118
I'm sorry anon, it sounds like what your father did really hurt you. That's a very young age to be told you're ''too old for toys''.
Since it will be an one-off thing for you, I would say go for it, just tink about it some more & buy the one you know will treasure the most. Also the figure market is huge and if you ever regret buying it or need some money, you will be able to sell her for the price you originally got her or even for a bit higher with no problems.
Sadly inflation + trends made figures ridicusly expensive, specially when they come with so little (figmas used to be $35 and came with more accesories…), but as I said, at least they're easy to sell back.
My mom did a similar thing, nona. She at least let me keep a few, but when I turned 9 she decided I was 'too old' for them and made me go through all my stuffed animals and throw most of them away, only letting me keep 5. She also made me do the same with my My Little Ponies, which is extra frustrating because they were all g1 ponies from the 80s and would be expensive to reacquire now. I think it's a big part of why I'm still drawn to plushies and ponies as an adult.
I keep my hoarding of them relatively in check by having one small book shelf that I keep my plushies+some sentimental knickknacks on. If a plushie won't fit on that shelf I won't get it.

I am so sorry nona, that sucks. I'm the same way with plushies, I love them so much. When I lived in Japan I played a lot at game centers specifically for plushies and wasted a lot of money, unfortunately very few of them are comfortable for snuggling with. Even the soft and squishy ones I get just don't… feel right.
I like to have them even though I sleep with the same plush every night (that I've had since I was a baby). The power of plushies are strong. I took it with me to college and when I went to study abroad, and I still remember that moment I sat down in my bed in my dorm in Japan, feeling so utterly alone and just hugging my plushie for just that small bit of home and comfort. I've stopped collecting new plushies because I know I don't like to snuggle them as much, but every time I see one…. all logic goes out the window and I want it so bad.
picrel, I fucking love yeastken. I saw a post once of a spread of yeastken items at Tokyu Hands. They were also selling an absolutely MASSIVE plush and I wanted it so so so fucking bad.

that’s obviously not her. whoever took that photo already owns the figure in the picture, and like ten others. i doubt they would be agonizing over $100>>1357081
do you want a figure specifically, or do you just want merch of that character? if it’s the latter there’s small things like official coasters you could get instead

Nonnas, I want to buy this Usakumya so bad… It's 9500 yen. I kept thinking about it for months. I always imagine that I will take it with me for walks, picnics, cute cafes, lolita meetups… I have been wanting to pose a plushie for cute "everyday situations" photos for so long and I just cannot find one that could suit my tastes - sooner or later I start thinking about Usakumya again (even having dreams about it!!!). I was thinking about finding a cute plushie in a thrift store but in the end I think of Usakumya…
Please give me some bad reviews, harsh comments, anything that will discourage me from buying it. I can afford it but in the end it is just a very expensive plushie… I know Baby is a "luxury brand" but how can I justify buying an expensive stuffed animal and at the same time laugh at people buying pointless branded products like gucci crayons? I know it is hypocrisy
, I really want to do the same but I keep saying "I'll just buy this one thing first and then I'll start" kek. I have no willpower.
The football / anglerfish was won from claw.jp. I believe it's made by amuse. The only listings I've found are from mercari.
The cicadas I purchased on ebay last year, it seems that seller is out of stock. If you search "magnetic cicada plush" you'll find them scattered through niche sales websites like jdm-car-parts, though their price is outrageous for such a tiny plush. Happy hunting!>>1357047
Yeah, the few times I've played I've had more luck with less popular websites. I even had staff help me once after blowing a bunch of plays on one machine, talk about embarrassing.
They pop up fairly often on closetchild for less than retail but I'm in agreement with >>1357720
that a white one's probably not super great in the long run. I get why you want one though, I wear classic and I own one of the LE versions because it was too cute to pass up. It is decently sturdy because it's supposed to function as a bag but accessing the bag part requires some severe manhandling of the head to get to the zipper which isn't a great design decision, and it holds less than a fucking thimble.

nona they have similar ones to these on ebay, aliexpress etc. in different colours/styles and different coloured eyes for under $20. if you wanna get one I'd go for something like this. not worth the money
, the actress behind this character got kicked out of the company, so they cold-turkey removed everything with her. The picture >>1357516
is a merch that a person's been collecting for years. >>1357525
I want a figurine, but of course the best bet would have been an artbook from the artist, which of course they don't have.>>1357156
I am glad I am not the only one who noticed. Figmas and especially nendroids used to be so cheap, 60$ at it's highest, but now the prices are so stupidly high. Hell, even POP-UP PARADE figurines which tend to be a huge hit or miss cost at least 60$.

Huehue…I'm not a good influence anon. This is me but with my obsession for AP pony bags.
I will agree with the other anon that a certain degree of care and non-habitual use of these plushies is necessary to maintain their good condition. As bags, they're not great. But they are cute and make me happy so that's enough. I know there are alternatives and knockoffs of these types of things but they're never nearly as good as the OG designs imo..
>>1358108>I am glad I am not the only one who noticed
Just make a quick visit to MFC and look at the huge amount of "Prices too expensive, I'm quiting" blogs that keep being written. People jokinly now call the site "My Quitting Collection"
Aside from inflation and the huge demand/small production, some companies are also skyrocketing their prices because they feel like it (the 600k yen 1/4 b-style…) and delivering bad quality products despite the insane price (just look at eStream), which unafortunely made other companies to raise their prices too to check if people still bought them, and since they did, they keep the higher prices.
The way a nendo with 2 accesories now costs the same as a 1/6 scale a bit ago makes my blood boil. Now I just wait until someone gets a broken box or defect to buy the figures for a bit cheaper…

After debating on buying this cat tree for months, i finally decided to go ahead and do it. when I put it together and checked the website image for reference it was discounted for their anniversary sale. Bad timing! Anyway if any crazy cat nonas need a new tree check it out, it's still going on.
Honestly, is it really bad to be a consoomer if it's for your pet?
not to pressure u but DO IT NOW its on sale>>1359136
seeing them happy makes it worth every penny…
I was worried about that too, but it doesn't seem their designs show up on the typical drop shipping sites. They also put up preorders that have CG models, then consistently release them.
in terms of quality it's a bit wobbly when my fattest (10lb) kitty runs up it, but that's bound to happen. The tunnel is too small for my cats to comfortably rest in, but they like the tall hidey hole and enjoy chewing on the dangly bits. I'd rate it 8/10. >>1359150
Have you never lamented over missing a sale?
File: 1664711499452.jpg (27.62 KB, 500x375, s-l500.jpg)
Nonas don't be like me, I bought a kuromi body composition scale (i've been genuinely needing a scale because I intend to lose some weight, nothing major but my old scale is mechanical and very imprecise)
While the scale itself only cost me 1000 yen, I had to pay shipping twice (to a proxy country and to my country after that) and sellers commission. So I paid out my ass just for a picture of kuromi on a completely normal scale.
Tbh I hate myself for this.
Granted that exact scale is 60$ + shipping on ebay and I paid much less than this, around 40 bucks, but my shippings costs were three times the cost of the scale itself just for a shitty uwu traumacore vibe larp.
Tbh I love kuromi so much, but I feel like a girl out of one of those shit tiktoks and memes about overconsumption.
NTA but I agree with this sentiment. Sometimes I will buy the plainest, cheapest version of a thing just because I need it, and other times I'll pay extra for the cutest color/design solely because I know it will make me very happy to pull it out and use it. I think there's a time and place to occasionally shell out extra. It makes me very happy to see and use the things I paid a little bit extra for.
I am also the type of person who will buy multiples of a single thing until I find the "perfect" version of it (I did this with winter coats and daily bags and am now doing this with my lunch bag). I've managed to stop myself from consooming the same fucking item over and over again and forcing myself to just wait and weigh out my options and keeping an eye out for something that will fulfill my criteria. I've been using the same coat and bag for years and they're still going strong and I feel zero compulsion to replace them because I just love them so much.
Not her, but I kinda thought of joking about that in my post. Like, that's some pathetic bitch behaviour.>>1361672
Yeah, it's a necessary item. Like the only other kuromi things I have are a tote bag I was lacking and a desktop air humidifier. I debated getting bags since bags are a useful item, but I can't justify it because I already have all the bags that I would actually need and they're quality so I don't need to replace them any time soon.>>1362030
I fucking bought off-brand sanrio stickers to stick on shit for like 2 bucks and still the thought that I could just get a normal scale and sticker it up didn't even cross my mind in the moment. I am so dumb.
I have also thought about getting a kuromi toaster because mine broke and I fucking love toast, but stopped myself in time to realise that my country and Japan have very different plugs and power standarts and even if I'd be able to convert the plug, I might have signed up to just burn my house down.
So I guess small victories.

Is there any tips and tricks nonnies can give to sell on Mercator? I’m selling an extra Hamtaro nendoroid and people are just liking my listing rather than send offers etc. is that a good sign? In exchange for advice I’d like to offer up the photo I took when I visited the funko pop store.

As someone who has sold there for almost a year, idk, I see some listings as long-haulers. I had two items that were extremely rare, and even though my listing was pretty much at the top of the Google shopping search for it, it took probably around 2 months for it to actually sell. It had like 40 likes by the end.
It's usually a good sign that an item is getting likes–that's when I actually become much less likely to promote bc people are much more likely to ignore an item if it's a very bad price, even if they really want it. I usually only promote truly ignored items or if I'm very desperate, I'll list elsewhere. Also–I usually make exceptions for items I know are extremely rare. I had a set of books that I could sell for 300$ and they were ignored for a month, not one like, but my listing was the cheapest one on the web. Then, it was randomly snatched up.
Just make sure you judge whether or not something might drop in value too. What items I usually sell will never be produced again nor drop in interest anytime soon, so I was able to get away with not dropping the price.

this loser moid spent 8000$ on this (probably faked) cartridge when the ROM has been dumped for years. this shit never fails to boggle my mind
That one in particular is a "not for resale" cartridge. They were meant to be used in stores for showing off games to potential customers, so there are significantly less of them than what's actually sold to the general market. Sometimes they're different versions from the retail games, or they have early/cut content that can appeal to hobbyists and fans.
Like that other nonnie
said though, it could easily be a bootleg, and there's nothing on one of these MM kiosk carts that hasn't already been documented or shared online. Dude's out of his gourd to spend that much for what's basically a scam at worst and a novelty at best.

My husband tinfoils that a grading company is behind the inflation of N64 games. It’s to only benefit the people who own these “rare copies”. Kind of like in uncut gems where friends offer high prices at the auction to inflate the price.
He also said that this copy of MM is one they’d have in a GameStop as a free to play copy.

It’s because of Tokyopop going bankrupt in America. They had a massive library of manga licenses. You can go onto Viz Media and request certain titles to be published again. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc6PUJkXtQIWBT8G3zMAN5IPAwHREYxjNeDcyQumRDdCccAlQ/viewform
I'm actually looking to get rid of most of my manga from years back and PSOH is one of them.
I wish I knew if Akino ever got to reunite Leon and D
i'm not even into sanrio and that scale is honestly cool as fuck, i know this thread isn't for encouraging this behaviour but i would buy it too given the chance. like >>1361672
said, if you aren't buying doubles and you'll actually use what you purchase it's not that bad.
Oops, I forgot about this post lol. I feel lucky that I haven't fixated on any expensive brands like mugler, I've mainly been collecting from alkemia and al rehab. I want to try some oil replicas I found on etsy as well, and I have a couple indie shops I'm looking at - solstice scents and kyse perfumes. I do have one miniature of versace's dylan blue, it's very cute ♥ I definitely don't need a lot. I got a 3.4 oz tester bottle at a bargain and I'm barely a quarter of the way through it. I'd rather have a miniature next time. >>1341693
I use them! They make me very happy. Smells are super vivid to me so a good perfume can turn my whole day around. >>1353451
Yes, you get it! The sensory experience is the biggest draw for me. I love scents in particular that replicate something in a realistic way. I have warm cotton from solinotes and it smells just like nivea cream, I'm obsessed with it. I played it safe and bought a travel size but I'm going through it really fast lol.

Nothing new under the sun. Dad collected Morgan dollars back in '08. They were around $25-50 depending on date and grade. If the coin was in a Carson City holder, the most common dates and shit condition would sell for $150. You could take the coin out of the plastic holder too. Pic rel. $400 now… kek

I got mine on surugaya, you can try mercari too.
They're a lottery prize so second-hand markets in Japan are your best bet.
Same for most sanrio appliances, they're usually the 1st place price in atari kuji lotteries.

Question to nonnies that sell online–do you put different things on different websites? Is it good to specialize?
Also, do the rest of you guys look for very "curated" shops? Sorry if that's cringey, kek.
I was looking to buy something super specific on a site and it seemed like most people there were specializing, which made me second-guess how I approach my selling. I've sold 70% of what I've posted on one site, but I'm now getting more into stuff that is rarer or even stranger. And I'm starting to feel quite yucky about just posting everything (games, clothes, books, etc). My store is a mess.

They amaze me. The other day I was at a Japanese store and they were selling packs of erasers shaped like garden eels. Not fish, not regular swimming eels, specifically this obscure subfamily of eels that poke outta the ground.

Japan has a fascination with obscure sea creatures and making merch of it, like I remember seeing items everywhere with giant isopods on them for some reason. Ngl, I like this phone case but it seems horribly impractical for use

she filters the fuck out of her pics now but she is very much a full millennial. And not one of the younger ones.
Ugh, sorry for incoming blogpost and general insane post, but I can't stand videos edited like this. They feel so fast paced since there is something new going on every second. the focus on every sound that happens also drives me insane. I'm a weirdo and really sensitive towards sounds so I can't stand this kind of stealth ASMR. It legit scratches my ear and makes me feel gross.
I talked to some friends a few days ago who where trying to get me into tiktok and they said that the short video format was good for your concentration which honestly just sounded insane. I feel like I'm suffocating whenever I watch so fasted paced videos

This person collected 26 loungefly bags in only two weeks. Mind you, loungefly bags range from $60-$90 so she spent at least $1000 on this shit in a short amount of time.

Different product shot every frame, shoving the microphone into everything to get the most fucking cursed sounds, talons gripping and tapping on everything.

I think ever since summer started, and especially since I scheduled my surgery for the end of the year, I lost control and just started spending money carelessly. I buy shit I truly want and use, especially when it comes to clothes because I find my size far more easily now than before, and I don't buy manga and video games randomly anymore but I spend a lot of money on eating outside and ordering takeouts after work because I have saved a lot of money and I want to treat myself. I need to get my shit together. I'm gonna buy some clothes and accessories today online and will stop shopping for the next two weeks and see how it goes. I also need to save more money specifically because I'd like to visit Japan next summer and do a lot of things I couldn't when I was there during the covid emergency measures. And I need to buy clothes, especially trousers there because it's what's actually difficult for me to find in my size where I live and I remember finding everything I wanted effortlessly in most stores in Tokyo.

if I can play devil's advocate I gotta say I'm not a fan of this, and NOT because I don't love the adorable precious aesthetic. The sticker sheets(?) and some of the paper is curling at the edges, and it looks really thin. Overall as cute as the illustrations are it looks like a cheap set. Plus with sets, you always get some shit you don't need. Why don't you wait and shop around for a higher quality item(s) that only includes what you'll really use? Something that you can relish using.
If you love sweet character goods, Sanrio & San-X both usually print on heavier paper stock than what it looks like your pic has.

Yeah it feels really ridiculous to want something that feels made for kids, but I do actually kind of use some of my plushies. I keep my large ones on the end of my bed and they kind of function as throws I can lay on when I'm playing games/studying. I don't have a partner rn (lol) and my little dog has her own pillow to sit on so they stay on the bed for me. I have a shelf with all my smaller ones on it that I rearrange from time to time but they mostly function as collective decor. I guess they just make me happy and I appreciate the way they're made so I can't hate figure collectors because I'm kind of the same thing. Pic rel is one I've been eyeing sooo much
That sounds interesting! but because of where I work at it might not be possible, or it would conflict.>>1369656

I went to ulta today and I saw the new makeup revolution halloween collection and I managed to resist buying anything from it. I use to have a serious issue consuming eye makeup products because I was so desperate to be that girl who could rock really cute dark eye looks, but I have to accept that they don't suit me at all no matter how hard i try. I straight up look like a child who played with my mums makeup. The most shameful part is that i was dumb enough to have bought some pretty expensive eyeshadows for whatever reason in the past. I was also tempted by picrel but idk, i have very crusty lips and have had negative experiences with one lip tint that i bought clinging onto dead skin on my lips and looking patchy and ugly. I still kind of want to try it, but idk if i want to waste $7 and have another piece of useless plastic in my drawers.
Saging in case is a tinfoil, cause I didnt see anything related to it: when does kpop stan culture start becoming an addcition?
I've seen people spend money on it like a gambling addiction, there's thus girl on my country that apparently has scammed kpop stans out of thousands of money to spend on photocards and the like. And the worst thing is that those things aren't even that collectible. I thought they were like more expensive or are? But no, and apparently there's a lot of fakes, and people pay for those custom fakes too. The drama in that fandom surrounding sales and scams is enourmous. I don't get why we can agree that gachas can lead to addiction, but kpop consoomerism doesn't? I don't get the point of obssesing over a moid like that, there's girls spending their best years and money on the equivalent of those otaku idols. There's a girl on my job that told that she bought a house, cause her room in her parents house was too crowded, and she wanted a place to put her merch. Girl why? I've had so many friends fall into that fandom and spent so much money on it. I'm geninuely worried, and worse of all is that if you point it out, they all argue that you're being "racist" or something.
Just like any addiction it starts off slowly and then spirals at some point without the person even really realizing. I was a kpop fanatic back in the second generation days and looking back I realize how dumb it was to obsess over moids with fake personalities and faker faces. I still don't know when it became so bad but one day when my laptop died and I was essentially cut off for about a month I realized how bad it was. (I didn't go back to kpop and thank God because the hallyu wave happened right after). Trust me it's all just massive cope when they pull the race card or claim you just don't get it and these guys are totes breaking gender norms and shit. We know we're losing money to guys who will never acknowledge our existence. Hence all the baaawing when you remind them of it.
But it's actually really easy to get into this addiction if you step a toe into the fandom. Once you join a group you get assaulted by random facts about ppl you don't know and fancams from all different angles and 100 different pictures of one idol at a single event. You just say you like a certain group or song and immediately you will get ppl trying to "introduce" you to the group (which really means throwing their entire discography at you and getting you to know their names and hair colors and blood types). And because everyone seems to know all this stuff and have these collections you don't the FOMO kicks in hard. And hard-core fans will flex on new fans for not knowing as much as they do and send you videos and shit to "educate you". Once you're in the echo chamber it's really hard to get out. So your friend is definitely trapped in that and it's gonna be hard for her to leave unless a major change happens and she's not in those spaces anymore.
Luckily for me I was able to sell all my second gen stuff for pretty good money recently thanks to a resurgence in interest of older groups.

nonnies, how do you live more frugally? my problem isn't hoarding shit (i don't buy merch, makeup, clothes/shoes, what have you, and i don't collect anything) but whenever my pay comes in at the end of the month i end up buying things i "need".
i moved into my own apartment a few months ago so a lot of the times i had to buy stuff for the apartment, like additional shelves or storage solutions. i'm slowly but surely set, so i don't have to worry about that anymore. still, i end up buying stuff. i went through my finances last week and if i lived more frugally and stopped treating myself for getting through another month of work, i could keep my spending to 1k euros per month, and save the rest of my wage (a bit over 900 euros per month). of course i still want to allow myself to treat myself to things like going to the zoo or ordering food with my coworkers once a month.
still, i feel like i'm constantly ordering stuff. right now i'm looking for the perfect planner because i have to deal with a lot of deadlines in my job, and i dislike online planners because they make it hard for me to grasp timelines. so i've been looking for planners and i ended up finding one i really like but ofc it's a fucking filofax and those are expensive.
otoh i can afford it after living barely above the poverty line until my early 20s and then living off of financial aid during college, but still. i wanna save up and make sure to have enough money in my bank account that my family doesn't have to worry about me.

1) You didn't sage. Is not needed in OT, but still.
2) it's less about fakes and more about fanmade merch. The fanmade merch side is as big as the merch oficial side. Sometimes fansites (read: stalker fans with privileges in the company that act half like PR and half like managers) sell their own fanmade merch with unseen photos or something, so that is kinda an intermediate step between fanmade and original, but still. There are imitation merch sure but i've never hear of fake merch being sold as real. There is no need because again, the fanmade merch market is as big as the original merch.
3) it's 100% an addiction and i can sperg about it for ages.
4) it's VERY collectable. Picrel is an special edition album with it's own premium photocard. There is only 2500 copies of it. Needless to say it's pretty rare. Kpop companies mastered the artificial scarcity and obviously they prey on the mentally ill so it's even worse.
I think it’s okay to treat yourself to something you know you’ll use a lot anon! With the planner, maybe try using just a notebook first before committing to the Filofax to make sure that written planning rly works for you. I bought a hobonichi a few months ago and I regret it now because I’m realizing that written planner-ing doesn’t work for me and I just hadn’t found the right planner app yet (for me that was Notion).
My perhaps obvious frugal tip is get into the habit of buying stuff secondhand. Most of my clothes, my nice brand name backpack, my dyson vaccuum, my sony headphones, my pretty (but inexpensive) antique tableware are all secondhand and often like-new. If it’s not something that must be hygienic or consumable or something where the warranty is really important, I check if I can get the thing cheaper secondhand before buying a new thing. I also look out for personal possessions I’m no longer using and I sell them.

Sorry if this is annoying to anyone but here’s another pic for the anons who wanted to see my calico critter fashion creations (I use a lot of scrap cloth to be responsible/consume less). The skirt is made from a pair of pants that never fit, the shirt is from some tights I barely wore, and the cane is a toothpick. Then the felt pieces were less than a dollar together. Was going for an autumn look here.

i was at my most depressed and lonely when i consoomed k-pop like crazy. i don't know if it was an addiction but i definitely bought albums compulsively and i genuinely thought i needed to have the most complete collection possible… realized it was total copium to avoid facing reality. i always got this nasty feeling when i looked at album merch previews like picrel knowing i had to choose and couldn't afford it all. i'm so glad nothing makes me feel like this anymore
not to mention the general obsession with random celebs who you don't know. all the scandals in 2018 made me physically sick because i essentially emotionally bonded to the idea of them i had in my head but i realized they were only random moids who weren't even attractive when left to their own devices.

I had managed to live a nice life without the urge to consoom and then BOOM, slight tamagotchi addiction. I've only got two so far, one from a thrift store and another as a birthday gift. I want to collect them so bad, they're just the funniest little dudes and I share them with my siblings. I don't feel as bad collecting them since they're all used and you can find some for cheap, but I feel like that's just my brain trying to convince me. I've always wanted these babies but never had the chance to get any, but now thay I've got a little extra money I would like to get more to switch out and use and make little yarn cases for them. Honest opinions nonnas, am I heading down a dark path or am I staying within reasonable limits?

Just move onto a different sanrio mascot, the prices for sugarbunnies probably aren't going to budge for a while.
Even if people lose interest, scalpers are still going to sell them for several hundreds because the market currently is so huge, and they probably won't go back down for a while especially since sanrio is bringing back sugarbunnies currently.

I've recently started redecorating my gaming setup to make my stuff look more "cute". I have a bad habit of needing to complete a set of anything I get, but I found a way to successfully get around that by just selling the equivalent in exchange (e.g. trading/selling a black controller for a cutesy mint green one).
There's some nice stuff that's popped up in recent years to personalize gaming spaces, which I appreciate, but I can't stand that when searching for more options, all that appears are the most unnecessary shit, but PINK. I feel companies only get away with it because it fulfills the quota of having a #pinkaesthetic for influencers or rich kids on tiktok/Instagram. If anything, I just wish more of that "kawaii" stuff came in other colors like blue or green, but those don't seem to be nearly as popular (or profitable).

they're just copying moschino
The Moschino ones work though because you can tell they were playing on cleaning supplies. It's like Lush wanted to do the same thing but then they copped out and painted them all black, or like they happened to make an ugly design that resembles cleaning spray. Also just as an overall brand, Moschino is known for stuff like that. If it's really a copy I have no idea what Lush was thinking. Not directed at you btw nonny
Ugly product aside, this is what gets me about hoarders>body sprays approx £25 each x 13 = £325>perfumes approx £1170 (some prices estimated)>ikea cupboard £90
at least keep it somewhere nice and make it presentable. ikea furniture is an eyesore and this looks just as ugly as those massive anime junk collections all contained in those ikea cube shelves.

I think I have my consooming under control because I tell myself "oh I'll just sell/get rid of the same amount of things that I buy" but I already have so much for such a small apartment. I try to sell some of my clothes but when I go to my closet I can't find a single piece I don't really love. I cycle my style a lot, currently it's student/jfashion and y2k grunge, but my 70s and cottagecore stuff are currently on hold. It's getting hard to cycle things out, but I honestly really need to have a heavy think about this. Also, I sell a lot of things online, so I have most of my storage space filled with things I have listed so my space is even more limited, and these are decent 50$+ items that I can't just donate or sell for cheap.

I got into a fight with my dad the other day because he was complaining about me buying too many gold plated earrings and that it was a waste of money compared to saving up and buying real gold pieces. I retorted he does the same shit when he buys people's used garbage off facebook marketplace, and he got mad.
Anyway, I definitely have an earring consooming problem. In my defense (or not), I stopped wearing earrings because I thought one of my piercing holes closed. I recently discovered it hadn't, it was just pierced funny but I can get an earring through, so I've been having fun and building up a new earring collection. So far, my biggest bulk purchase has been from a small artist who's stuff I love. All my other earrings are one off purchases here and there for like $2 a pair or something. I'm thinking of getting a case to store my hanging ones since I have a lot of hanging ones now and my jewelry case is best meant for studs.
I know I should stop but I haven't worn earrings in years and have passed up so many cute earrings. I will eventually buy some nice gold ones or something, but I buy cute jewelry less as an investment and more because they are cute and spark joy. I don't care to wear $500 made of solid gold if they're ugly as fuck. Also I passed up on buying these but now I'm thinking of getting them but I know I shouldn't. I just got like 10 new pairs of earrings.
Those are cute as hell, nonny
, get em. I have the same addiction though. Earrings are about the only metal jewelry I can wear (sensitive skin skipped my ears I guess) so I go nuts at any craft fair I attend, leave with at least 3 pairs.
OW2 free-to-play change is dumb as hell, but blizzard are shit and they know their consoomers will keep throwing money on them no matter what>battle pass costs 10$, but wait, you need to pay 20$ to get -every- item off the battle pass, so you should upgrade it on permium (pretty much similar crap thats happening w discord nitro rn)>every old and new skin in the shop costs 20$>picrelated skin costs 25$ because it forces you to buy a bundle that includes banner, icon, charm and some other crap just so you could spend more on it>the only way you can get a skin for free is by spending 8 months doing weekly challenges in which you get these dono-coins
people keep complaining, but they also -keep buying-.
yeah this killed Overwatch for me. I hate to agree with the crowd saying it's a cash-grab but Blizzard can go absolutely fuck themselves regardless.
and the fucking woke character design (when 3 are japanese?) plus the weird coomer elements make me think the whole staff are filled with AGPs
sorry but fuck Overwatch, I've played for YEARS and now it seems it's all been wiped for something worse.

They’re really cute. I’ll just look at them :’-)(:’-))
They are excusing that 'fornite is the same' when fortnite actually gives a lot of good freebies and free content unlike overwatch, in which battle pass you have to grind in order to get a new character, and the only good cosmetics you will get would be a random profile banner with a cat, whilist the skins are some shitty recolors.
I feel like Apex has the most fair Battle Pass systems (despite the devs being dogshit at creating their characters and balancing them), where if you buy one battle pass and complete it you earn enough money in order for you to not pay for the next battle pass, because you can buy it again. I am trying to understand why they removed lootboxes, I assume some of the countries banned them.
I think 20$ for one skin is downright stupid, especially that the battle pass with 2-premium skins costs 20$. I have also noticed that the skins quality is complete garbage now, same with the character design.

this is the worst one i've ever seen.
Didn't a previous nonna complain about people beginning to collect and hoard canned fish? kek
I would say it's bad, like any thing is bad in excess. There's trying limited edition flavors like >>1393112
and then there's just… buying so much food in excess. Food is definitely worse because outside of dried and canned goods that can last maybe forever, food will
spoil. Junk consoomerism isn't good either but at worst, it just takes up a fuck ton of space and collects a lot of dust. Food? Gets moldy and disgusting. The purpose of food is to literally be consumed.
Anyway, my parents are hoarders and they also hoard food. So much food in our fridge is moldy. A lot of it isn't even food you can just grab and eat, it's shit like weird sauces and soup stocks and whatever. Half of my shit gets lost in there and even when I have food I want to eat and savor, if I don't eat it all within 2 days, I can forget about it because it's going to get pushed into the back of the fridge and getting it out is like excavating a fucking mine. Sucks because I will sometimes buy sweets or other high calorie foods but I'll split it into smaller pieces so I can enjoy it for longer/not eat a huge calorie bomb in one sitting but I'm left with either not buying it at all (so I won't be forced to eat all of it at once lest letting it get sucked into the void) or it goes into the void.
Food hoarding, as >>1393266
said, usually happens when the person grew up with food insecurity. I don't think it necessarily falls under the same umbrella as Tiktok plastic crap hoarding.
However, people who buy those huge boxes of almost-expired Japanese snack food, keep ramen noodles as a desk decoration, have a goddamn snack cart in their bedroom stuffed with an entire supermarket isle of shite, and eat nothing but pink Pocky and Hello Kitty-shaped chicken nuggets are, in my opinion, a million times worse than the ones who only hoard plastic. Plastic won't rot, attract insects, or give you diabetes.
I think food hoarders have more of a shopping problem than regular plastic hoarders. You buy plastic and it's there forever, but you need to keep buying food. It's easier to justify, it's cheaper, and there's always a new and exciting snack trending somewhere. Everywhere you look, there's another opportunity to spend.
No effort was put into this imo. Every single thing in this image can be bought in one go in walmart and you can set this up in 40 minutes or so. All i see is somebody with non-existent impulse control.>>1390381
I just wanted to say i fucking hate christmas apparel unless they are jumpers that can easily be sent to goodwill or put away for next year or loungewear which you can wear year round. Making a bag like that is so specific and pointless, why would anybody except consoomers want it? That's that shit that is stuck in the store well into march. Literally the only justifiable purchase in this video was the supplements, she shops like a 13 year old who just got pocket money for the first time.>>1390047>>1390053>>1390050

My sister has a perfume hoard that looks exactly like this. Perfume is not the only thing she consooms, she does it with designer stuff, makeup, skincare and clothes. I wish i could get a picture of it but we are not on speaking terms. She belongs in this thread so bad.

I forgot my original purpose for coming to this thread, but I cannot stand it when luxury companies, espeically when it's the ones that don't have clout release stuff like this. I understand not even the biggest consoomers will buy this and sephora will end up heavily discounting this. idk where to post it, i just find the existance of the product baffling because you can't even pretend it's worth it in anyway as you could with the other overpriced shit sephora sells. They even have blatantly fake reviews in the comments that have been heavily downvoted.
She got a wallet for christmas time wtf, I get having a cute necklace or a pair of earrings you use during winter or christmas to look and feel festive but a whole ass wallet that sees the light of the day only when you buy something? I guess she's always buying shit though, so she must have her wallet out all the time. A fucking christmas wallet for god's sake. Imagine having to transfer all your cards and shit to a different wallet every time you go out.>>1391230

I just bought one of these for the first time today. Cracking it open was so thrilling, I understand why they design them this way and market them to kids. Through a series of coincidences I ended up with some mini dollhouse food, then I got a mini shopping cart for fun, then I saw this at the store today and I just went retarded and grabbed it. I love it I understand completely why people collect them. But I feel like I am going to stop since the cart is full now and I already did what my goal was (take a pic of my hamster pushing the cart full of goods like she's shopping) I have to say peeling back each "slice" and revealing the little brands felt more satisfying than scratching a lotto ticket. Frighteningly addictive rush
I don't hate the little products for what they are (like you siad they can be dollhouse food/just to collect) but I absolutely hate the packaging going on. I know it is designed to be addictive to the monkey brain but the companies have to know
how much waste goes into these and still continues to produce them like this. Why can't they use something like cardboard and peel it up to get the things?but the reason you got them is really cute nona and you won't keep blindly consuming so I forgive you

This. The main reason I don’t bother with US based toys is because they have so much excess plastic, biggest example of this is world’s smallest series, jesus fuck there is so much plastic packaging for something called ‘world’s smallest’
Same complaint I have for anime figures, I bought a Madoka figure who came in a really huge box of plastic, I don’t even get the appeal since printed cardboard boxes look much nicer for figures.
Always hear people buying designer bags for the "quality" and never wearing them for the "value". A shelf trinket is what you bought, then.>inb4 reselling
Dumb & wasteful concept
There are crazy replica consoomers too. Before r/RepLadies got shut down, I remember one of the top posts being a "stop buying so much replica just for the thrill of it" post. The Cut article (that made them take down the subreddit) describes the reporter speaking to well known members of the subreddit, who owned so much replica.
I have one replica that I found through one of the sellers there (actually because a nona recommended the subreddit to me kek), and it's a Burberry replica. I can't spin as a useful purchase in any way, and even if I did save $800 on the bag, $250 for a small bag is still a stupid purchase. It's purely a bag I use for looks because functionally… it sort sucks. It's small and can only fit so much in it, so I don't really get much use out of it. Well, at least I only paid as much as I did and not full price for it.
I struggle to justify designer goods because the price tag of them also makes it difficult for me to use them. If I had bought the real bag, I'd rather display it than use it… Why take a $1000 bag into the outside world where it will get dirty or stolen, much less a $15,000 bag? If something happens to my replica, it'll suck, but I'll probably just shrug my shoulders. "At least it wasn't the real thing."

I'm trying so hard not to fall down the croc rabbit hole, but I'm starting to understand why it's so easy to suddenly accumulate so many of these bastards.
I originally only owned two croc flip flops. The first ever crpcs I bought was a pair of flip flops, and I reluctantly bought it because I needed it for cosplay and I wanted to buy some cheapo ones but being the beginning of September, there were pretty much none for sale anywhere except for crocs. I did not plan or want to spend $20 on some stupid flip flops but my god these bitches were comfortable. I got my second pair from a family friend.
I hated the clogs like everyone else but I've fallen for the "so ugly they're cute" idea, plus I'm already half in love with them because fuck my croc flip flops are undeniably comfy. I only wanted one pair of clogs but the color I want is hard to find in my size in stores. I gave up and decided to buy online but to my demise, I found some other really cute ones while browsing and I'm waiting for it all to come in the mail now…
I ended up buying my coveted crocs, another pair of cute clogs, and slides because they were cheap and I wanted free shipping and they seem like another good errand shoe (might return them though). The cute clogs come in two color ways and I got one colorway and I'm most likely going to buy the other colorway that I originally wanted but it sold out completely.
Sorry for crocs sperging. I feel so bad for consooming so much all at once. I probably won't get to picrel but I don't know. I didn't expect to find some really cute shit when I just went to go buy the single pair I've originally been wanting this whole year.

Taylor Swift is a perfect example of consoomer culture in music these days. From releasing 100s of remixes to get her stans to buy the same song and chart. To making multiple versions of album covers. To her tickets resells costing 95k, that's someone's tuition.
And her music gets more generic.

I'm moving and thinking of getting rid of my doll collection, or most of it at least. I feel like I went into a consoom psychosis and got way too many. I don't want to display them, they look so ugly and chaotic together. Maybe I will keep some and diplay maybe 2-3. I have started to customize some so they are unsellable, but I have some untouched ones I could sell. I will lose a lot of money as I have paid a lot for them and I will sell them for cheap but idc honestly. I just want them OUT of my house.
I am actually but we don't probably live in the same country so the shipping would add up

Honestly I was so taken aback by the price! I have stupid small feet so I had to buy the kids crocs (pls no bully) but I guess a saving grace is that they're much cheaper. The crocs I scored were ~$25 each because of sales on top of sales. I love them but my god I don't think I'd ever be able to justify paying full price for them. The new Pokemon ones are… ok. The pikachu jibbitz are so cute though! I didn't realize official jibbits were so fucking expensive though… I got some from a flea market and it was only $5 for like 8 of them.
Trying really hard not to justify fuzzy ones for the winter kek. I got bright/pastel colored ones and I already know they're going to look so cute with all my spring/summer clothing!

Thanks anon that's a very comforting thought, I'll keep it in mind.
I already sold one bigger doll item today!
actual sexual attraction is just a concept to them, they have never touched anyone else's genitals and a lot of them have body issues of some sort, so they don't want sex with men. they also think not sleeping with every man they see irl (because that's what people do in western tv shows and western tv shows always tell the truth) and finding some anime girls sexy means that they are lesbians.
these women are really quick to forget their weird gender nonsense and stupid pronouns once they finally find a boyfriend.

There's just no way. I feel like liking these started out as a meme for a lot of people. I don't know. Squishables are way cuter.
One of her vids was randomly recommended to me lately, she was opening mystery boxes and couldn't even remember which squishmallows she already had til she went and checked. How much joy can you claim these things bring you when you can't remember which ones you had already went out and bought before?
She complained that Claires charges a lil more for them but.. you're the one buying them and barely registering what you own?

Washi tape is a hell of a drug nonas. I went through my favorite stationery store's website to try and find a tape I saw in their store a while back, but I couldn't remember the name or brand so I just had to sift through 34 pages of washi tape and suddenly I've got 30 tabs open. I swear nonas, it's like being a crack addict and being in a room full of it. My brain shuts off and I go absolutely insane and the next thing I've known I've spent $50 on like 10 fucking rolls of god damn tape. It's an actual problem I have to the point where I actively avoid going to sections of stores that I know stock washi tape.
I have a drawer specifically to hold my tapes and at the height of my consoomerism, I filled about half of it very quickly. I've reined myself in and I'm very selective about the tapes I buy now (I think I've only bought about 2 or 3 this past year) but going through those 34 pages was like actual hell for me kek. I think I found the tapes and I don't really like them that much now, but then I saw these fucking beauties and another seaside themed one!! I use my tapes as frequently as I can- in my journal, when wrapping gifts, decorating cards and letters, etc. But the reality is that it just takes a lot of time to go through these tapes, even if I use them nearly everyday. I've only ever finished one roll of washi tape that I own.
Stationery is one hell of a fucking drug. I own two fountain pens and I want more from another brand I don't own from- but who the fuck needs more than one fountain pen? And inks? Don't get me started. I've resorted to bargaining with myself to only buy sample sizes (a fucking god send of an option) since even a little bit of ink goes a long way and I know I'm the type of person to buy 3 very similar looking shades and say "but they're different shades!"

It's just fancy tape, so you can just use it as tape. I use it primarily for decoration purposes, mainly to add a little bit of ~*~pizzaz~*~ to my journal pages or on gift wrapping (since I like to reuse plain brown paper that's used as package stuffers). Just makes stuff look prettier.

I love how much of a supportive mom you are, nonnie
! There’s lots of SH and RH sales right now.
Seeing this reminds me of something I said to my mom years back. That a lot of the time when I received presents the best thing about them was opening them up. The actual act of unwrapping/opening the gift was more fulfilling than the gift inside.
It makes me think about online shopping and how it provides this sort of high when you receive your package. People are easily addicted to that feeling and can become chronic shoppers because of it. This girl seems like a classic case. I bet if online shopping wasn't a thing, she wouldn't be as gung ho to blow her money.
don't blame you, this is so gorgeous. it has so much potential as an ooak but she seems so beautiful it would be a shame

i'm honestly disturbed by her vacant stare and soyfacing.
I had an epiphany about this exact thing a few years ago and it's what made me stop online shopping so much. I remember I used to open my packages up and enjoy the dopamine hit of opening it up and touching it for the first time, then it sat in the corner doing nothing.
My dad does this too but won't get it through his stupid thick head. On top of it, he won't throw out any of the packaging either so it's just junk AND garbage everywhere. No we can't clean it up because he's a manchild and will throw tantrums when we do.

Having friends with kids I can't get over how many toys (stuff that costs like 10 to 15 quid) are on par with just buying them a fucking kinder egg. Once you get through all the layers of packaging that make it look more impressive.. its rubbish.
This opening layers on layers of 'surprises' thing is what alot of figures and dolls have become but its a trap to make you pay 15 euro for a 50 cent figure at most and and maybe a couple stickers.

not really a consoom like the other vids posted here, but i found this on reddit and had to share.
Have worked in the restaraunt industry for a few years and the most devistating thing I saw was having to throw out about 100lbs of cooked meat that was only a couple days old. We all stashed some, including the head chef, because it was such a ridiculous waste. In more corporate chains you aren't really allowed to do this though, I realize.
In the US,there are laws against giving such food to shelters or even just the homeless because they could be sued if someone gets sick.
Doubt that the hungry are going to do so, but who am I to know. It's awful.
All corporate owned shops and restaurants (and many smaller ones too) don't allow this because muh profits. It's similar to how fast fashion brands rip and destroy the clothes that don't sell for a long time. It's fucked up.
That Donut place would be incredible for dumpster diving though and I hope people take advantage of that. Sometimes the employees actually help people out and let them know when they can come to get the food (in secret because giving it away is illegal).
This reminds me of a scene of a video I once watched in high school that's been seared in my mind. The video focused on the elderly of NY's Chinatown, and how they have found community with one another in their loneliness. There's a scene where an elderly person is going through a bakery's garbage and picking out pieces of bread that are still good. The person explains that the bakery will throw water all over the bread meant to be thrown out to discourage people from going through the trash. It just hurt my heart. You know the people going through your trash most likely are doing it out of desperation for some food, so to throw water on it and ruin it feels like just kicking someone when they're already down.
I understand that laws make it difficult for places to donate their food, but I have seen some apps pop up (Too Good To Go is one I have downloaded) where people can pay a small amount for a bag of random goodies that were left over at the end of the night. Usually it's like $3-$5 for a lot of food and bakeries usually give lots of good shit.
I don't see how you're losing profits if your employees just take some stale donuts that nobody would want to buy anyway. You're just saving food that would be thrown away this way. Almost all bakeries in my country are known to let their employees go home with cakes and bread to not waste food.
>That Donut place would be incredible for dumpster diving though
You described it the same way supermarkets act though. If they're similar enough maybe they even throw toxic
products like bleach on the food to prevent people from touching that stuff once it's thrown away.

Whoa nona, I thought I was weird for having 10 +/- inked fountain pens but this made me feel less bad kek
Fountain pens are one hell of a drug. They're not the worst things I've come to collect so I don't feel TOO bad. I'm trying REALLY hard not to order a Sailor Shikiori but I think I will likely cave soon.
Honestly I'd have never guessed I would become an FP maniac myself but here we are. (I wanna know what nonnies' favourite pens are but maybe that's a bit too much?)
I used to work for a major chain in Canada for doughnuts while I was in HS, and we absolute could not bring things home for whatever reason. My coworker got in trouble for taking one doughnut, kek.
I also worked in a small bakery, and I was able to bring things home, it depends on corpo job you're at.

Got recommended this random channel about a couple who basically center their entire life around Disney, I wonder if they can genuinely enjoy romantic moments that don't involve Disney
I agree, I would steal SO much however, just to give to the homeless people nearby. They were nice and I was being petty so I would just steal to steal. Fuck them.
The waste is disgusting, the food is disgusting.
I used to work at starbucks and depending on which store I was at (since they moved us around) we would be able to take home food. It was technically 'stealing' to take food which would end up in the dumpster, but most shift leads didnt give a shit. I only met one who was super hard on the rules, but that was because he was trying to become a store manager. I wish more places were like Pret a manger, which openly put their food out every night in clear bags and encouraged anyone to take them.
I used to dumpster dive at starbucks in NYC and would come home with hundreds of dollars worth of never touched food and coffee bags. I gave a lot away to friends and family after telling them where I got it from. Most food thrown away isnt even expired.
They do this partially because companies have gotten sued by people who claimed food poisoning and stuff from eating the "old, leftover" food.
Clothing companies rip clothing up for purely capitalist reasons. Certain brands don't want homeless people to be seen wearing their latest fashions because the rich fucks that keep them in business won't want it anymore.

I’m in the process of decluttering and recently got rid of a ton of paper junk (after buying a scanner and saving them to my comp) but I have more difficulty letting go of the many trinkets and shit I have. I wish I could set up like a yard sale except the stuff is free, none of it is worth selling but could be useful still (like christmas stickers, calculators, etc.). I live in a rural area though and I doubt people are gonna want to drive all the way in for junk. Idk I’m so conflicted, they’re perfectly fine but I don’t wanna throw them to the trash, they’re not ready for that yet. I’ve got lots of small toys/figurines, and I wish I could give them to collectors or kids.

Christmas really brings out the consoomer in me. I was raised by a family that goes Dursley-tier crazy on Christmas so I feel this pressure to spend a ton of money and time on gifts and frou frou. My house is decorated head to toe but I have to really stop myself from buying more. Also I started collecting those retarded fabric birds, I only have 2 but it's only a matter of time for me, the fact that you can incorporate them into your decorations really tempts me
Hoping we get some more xmas themed consoomer TTs. They're kind of addicting.

Other anons have already said it but here's also a visual example of using washi tape to decorate. >>1442631
Washi tape is my drug. Even though I journal and use it for decorating gift wrapping, it's not enough. I can't go through my tapes fast enough.
theres not a hard expectation for physical gifts but i know none of them would care for something like a donation in their name or anything charity related.
i think paying for an experience they can have is the best i could hope for, or maybe a subscription service for some type of consumable

Since we're in topic (and pardon me if this has already been posted), I will say that I hate any type of consoomer advent calendar with a burning passion.
I have a fond memory of advent calendars, because when I was a child it was a moment for, as I said, children to enjoy a little chocolate or candy the days before xmas. It was a cute thing for children!
Now it's full of designer brands (Chanel, for example), makeup, toys, food subscription boxes, hell, fucking DISNEY is making a calendar full of christmas crap that gets forgotten for the rest of the years and no one bats an eye.
Zoomers in particular are holding into the "save the planet uwu Capitalism is bad!!" idea but flock like pigeons on bread when they see another calendar filled with minisizes no one wants and useless crap, with an absurd overcharge on top. Disgusting.
I agree with you anon, I loved getting the little chocolate ones when I was a kid, they used to be cheap too. Now I saw chocolate calendars in the shop with as little as 40g of chocolate in them costing upwards of £4-£5.
The makeup/skincare ones are always full of hair ties, makeup pads, whatever, and the grand prize is a sample sized perfume or cream, whole box priced at £20 or so. It's not really the worst thing to consume but it's a waste of money and they're normally 80% filler.
It's just chocolate nonnie
, don't feel bad. I kinda wanted one too but it feels illegal to buy one myself when it was always gifted to me as a kid. One day!
ayrt, yes please post pics when you do! I've got dollhouse plans as well, I just need to get off my ass and find some more old wine crates. >>1446568
hehe I started with the Shibas too.
living a better life than my 24 year old ass who has never experienced the joy of an Advent Calendar. sigh
maybe next year. are they unpopular in America or something? or am I weird? because there's only a few people irl that I know for a fact got them, and I assume others participate in the tradition as well but have no reason to mention it.
men really made us think our life should be joyless past 22 y/o
don't feel bad nonie, i have an advent calendar too
I'm going to do it for the rest of my life nona, I don't think it has an age cap and makes the terrible, terrible month of December a little more bearable.
That said I was too busy this work to buy one before December started and now they're nowhere in shops. Agree with the other anon that the non choc advent calendars are shitty. I like the fancy chocolate ones, it feels more grown up and like my fatty self to have a designated praline a day.

i've sort of wanted one since i started running in 2018 but it always feels like far too much money for what it does. i don't want any of the other fitness bands/smart watches because i'm a freak about data privacy, but since the apple watch is likely to rely on third-party apps too i'm thinking that might be a redundant line of thinking. it feels like a particularly consoomerist thing to have

Autism incoming: when did it become the norm to call them “plushes” or “plushies” instead of “stuffed animals”/does anyone know where that stems from? Is it regional? Not hating on you nonnies who called them that here, i just stg I never saw that once until a few years ago and now it’s most common usage and tbh I don’t like it much. Maybe calling them “stuffed animals” helps me divorce myself from the fact I’m a grown up lady who has to talk herself out of buying them on the reg idk

I started saying plushie because of Neopets.
File: 1671125241902.png (236.76 KB, 715x413, buttercup.png)
I also have a collection of stuffed animals that I sleep with. I'm 24 years old and nobody knows. I'm a giant, stoic asshole IRL so I'm sure no one could imagine me cuddling and kissing a bunch of plushies every single night.
I'm sure it screams "womanchild" but it helps me channel my maternal instinct so I don't care.
I think there's a good chance it's regional.
However like >>1447054
I think I started saying it cause of Neopets too
Slight tangent, but imo "stuffie" is the worst term for them. I've only ever seen ddlg degens use it.
I say plushie because of various games, I think. I wish I could have a plushie collection, but I think my family would judge me for it. I only have a few beanie babies. >>1447067
There's just something so gross about the term stuffie
I love this idea! I have some stuff I should probably get rid of.
Also for any nonnies who don't want to let go of their plushies, what I did was get one of those nets you hang on the wall and just put it above the door in my bedroom, so they're out of the way, but always near if I want one to snuggle or display

I totally agree. Mass produced children’s dolls are like Funko pops of the doll world. I used to be an avid collector of monster high but sold them all. I was excited for the reboot because (yay no more hair glue!) but they’re all so cheap and ugly. The only one I might want to buy is Abbey but If they make her trans I’ll go ape shit.

Those are her signature colours though. Purple, pink, blue and white. The moment I saw her snowflake shirt I was afraid because it does look like the troon flag. If it’s fanon she’s a troon I simply won’t accept it but if it’s canon I’m losing it.

I hate the new reboot dolls. The new Barbie-esc body positive bodies don't suit the girls imo. They're monsters, it fine if they are anachans.
I have! I try really hard to open my fridge and make a note of all my ingredients to make something for myself. Also, I think the best thing to do is write down how much extra money you saved by not ordering take out. It's so easy to spend $100 a week if you're not careful on ubereats/doordash etc.
Extra money plus not extra weight, but outside food and portions tend to make us gain easily. You got this!!

honestly nonni, i was about to curse you out on you trying get me to respect what i assumed was a tif's pronouns, but i checked his instagram to be sure and wow, pretty sure this a legitimate male! seriously surprising since he has pronouns in his instagram bio and
likes bts/male kpop groups
esl-chan, I'll be nice; all dolls, in general, are mass marketed to little girls, meaning the majority of adult doll collectors are women. While there are also the gay male fashion doll hoarders to account for, they have never and will never be the majority of what is considered a vastly female hobby.
However, most importantly, if you go back and read my comments, I said that I believed him to be a tif mostly because he is a boy
group kpop fan AND has pronouns on his instagram AND has a squishmallow collection ALONG with collecting fashion dolls! Not just
because he hoards 3-4 different brands of dolls! I Know now that he is just a pathetic gay asian man
I hate the new mh line and the more I see of it the more I despise it>>1448422
It's kind of gross seeing all his sexy men posters next to his massive hoard of children's dolls.
I know it's a collecting thing, but I would utterly embarrassed to have such a room.

resell the stuff you're thinking of getting rid of online. you need the money, it's only a slight hassle to get to the post office… even if you have to sell it for less than it's worth or group things into lots, it will still help you out financially to have some money from it instead of no money
if you don't want to do post office, maybe try looking for a local facebook sales/swap shop group and you can arrange to meet buyers around town

I have way too many fucking plushies and no good storage idea that I like. I don't want to use a hammock as I don't like the idea of leaving my plushies out to collect dust and I'm not sure if there's a big enough box for the sheer amount of plushies I have. I had them in large plastic trash bags in my closet but that looked terrible and took up so much space. Some of the plushies I probably should get rid of but I'm not sure if anyone would buy them. Plus, I hesitate to even sell some of them even if they're not designs I love because I won them from UFO catcher machines. Pic related, a reversible Hello Kitty plush that turns her into a roast turkey that I found in my collection (and have no idea where I got from).

But a plushie hammock in tiers doesn't sound like a bad idea though. The only alternative would be to get shelves or other storage or start decluttering.

I adore the colors and outfits, but the faces are a bit wonky. I splurged on pic rel a while back because the color scheme actually works in favor of the face design. I thought about her for about a month before pulling the trigger
and driving across town. I liked her enough that I'd be disappointed if she got scalped at some absurd price. I sold my Megara masquerade doll to pay for textbooks and I'm sad she was too much to replace, so this one takes her place to look at everyday instead.
Not limited strictly to perfume, but the chemicals used in inorganic beauty products are much higher than FDA guidelines, not thoroughly regulated, and affect hormone balance, namely mimicking estrogen causing early puberty in young girls and birth defects, especially in the black population where a greater variety of more warned against chemicals are found. This is all on top of being an endocrine disruptor, which is a nice way of saying your skin as an organ doesn't breathe well with product on it. I can't find the article, but there was a study I want to say around 2018 of more than 2,000 women who had the build-up of 22 low-end cosmetic chemicals in their uteran samples. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180913134538.htmhttps://nwhn.org/harmful-chemicals-in-personal-care-and-cosmetic-products-lead-to-negative-health-outcomes-for-women/

Made a Sanrio wishlist! I tried to keep it to items that I can’t find on a whim and have been hunting for several months.
It’s a fun way to think about items that you really want as a collector over just spamming whatever’s popular currently into the list (keeping it under 10 items also helps).
Honestly? Currently the best way to find 2000s Sanrio products like that right now is Instagram sellers, I also check the jp and chinese second hand sites a lot (チャーミーキティ for charmmy kitty and ルロロマニック for lloromannic, who are the demon characters).

God this, it’s fucking insane how high it goes for
It’s almost at sugarbunnies levels
I would rather die>Is it just the name that drives the price?
Kind of, it’s a mix of them being rare/uncommon characters who only started getting merch semi regularly again last year as well as them being popular currently for falling into the ‘goth Sanrio’ vibe that’s popular in Japan right now because of jirai kei.
So pretty similar to western weebs current obsession with sugarbunnies (both 2000s Sanrio characters) but on the eastern side (and also me).

I wouldn’t spend that much on them personally, I got my lloromannic plushies from Sanrio’s official store a while back (and they’re actually a pretty nice size) and I’m waiting for this one to come in the mail.

blog ahead. but on the topic of calico critters, on my break at work today a coworker asked what i had been up to yesterday (because i haven't slept since 2:00am of yesterday). told him i was p much just drinking beer and sewing 'lil clothes for my calico critters. offered to show him a picture. he said sure. i showed him an outfit inspired buy 80's exercise wear. he kept asking how i did that. didn't know what to tell him other than "well, um, needle and thread really". odd, but i got a kick out of it.
