I met up with a friend who I normally just catch up with online because we live far apart. I realised we never spoke about clothing when he showed up in those 100 euro hype shirts. At the same time when we split the bill at a restaurant with our friends he'd count the value of what he'd ordered to make sure he hasn't overpaid by a euro or more. Guy earns nearly double what I do. Men really value those ugly ass shirts, huh?

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”

No. 1339354

these aren't even that bad. gamer moids are usually far worse than the first pic, and the consoomerism is relegated to literally one tiny shelf, so it barely counts. i'm pretty sure the second is definitely a woman's room. the giant poster of stevie nicks, the breakfast club, may winehouse and billie eilish scream 'pretentious 19 year old girl with a letterboxd account' to me, and most moids don't use cute potted plants to decorate

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.

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.

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?

No. 1341693

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.
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.

I also had a bunch of MH and Barbie dolls that self-destructed by the yellowing hair glue. That's why I can honestly say that I wouldn't even take them for free. I know higher priced dolls still age, and can age poorly, but if I have to loose $100 in one go, I'd rather it just be one doll I can strip and sell for parts in an afternoon, and not the ordeal I had to go through to dispose of MH.

This kind of makeup hoarding sprouted makeup panning communities, where people shared pictures of their used up makeup, encouraging others to use up their items before buying new ones. Of course since people can't help and turn it into a competition, these places were loaded with pictures of eyeshadow palettes scraped empty (rather than used up), cream products where someone stuck a finger and dug a well in it to "reach the pan", and one user I remember ran an instagram account where she drilled tiny holes into £4 Makeup Revolution palettes and called them finished. Weird times.

I'm not even a make up hoarder but I did ipsy for a few months and even that accumulated to be too much. I got some nifty stuff, like the brushes in particular I really liked, plus some eyeshadows that I genuinely love. I cancelled because of money reasons, but never looked back. I draw in my eyebrows, use eyeliner, and that's it. I've found my perfect, reasonably priced eyebrow pencil and eyeliner pen and will never buy another unless they get discontinued. Sometimes I think about buying a new mini eyeshadow palette, but I just know I'd never use it.

No. 1344894

The makeup panning subreddit was great until, like you said, it was turned into a competition. I liked going there for reviews and product recommendations because it was obvious the poster had actually used it before and wasn’t simply suggesting what’s currently trendy. There’s so many brands and products on the market these days it’s just overwhelming and I gave up on makeup (and Reddit lol)

No. 1345494

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.

No. 1345520

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.

No. 1346078

oh god, the investment thing annoys me, maybe because i have no interest in hustle culture, but i see this with luxury bag collectors as well. i looked into some tiktoks to see what luxury bags are actually good or not out of sheer curiosity and the creator was clearly more interested in reselling them for a premium when it's become "vintage". what about buying an expensive, well-made bag for daily use and throwing it out/recycling it once it's finally worn out?

No. 1346085

gosh, tiktok is probably what influenced zoomers to be mega consoomers (hey that rhymes!). these influencers are just hyping up the items they buy so that they can resell them back to their followers. it's a big game of hot potato

No. 1346098

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.

Super niche and kind of silly, but I'm really into these (now defunct) little bear art figurines called Cherished Teddies, I think so many of them are absolutely adorable and just seeing the ones I have makes me smile—but the collecting community terrifies me. I don't know why, but seeing giant cabinets full of these little figurines stresses me out so bad. Video linked is someone with shelves and shelves of them (I think possibly a whole room!), which is baffling to me.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No. 1357176

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.

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'm going to be very honest: it looks musty. It looks like those cheap 90's plushies that rots in cheap claw machines where i live. I can smell the pic. I know Lolita is inherently tacky but the off-white body and those detailless, bright red plastic eyes aren't doing any favors to the poor thing. If you buy it and actually bring that plushie to "meetups and picnics" please know that is going to look dirty very quickly. It doesn't look particularly sturdy either for "everyday situations" either. Collectible items have a shitty durability because they're made to be put in a box, so what are the odds that you will end with an ugly, permanently dirty and raggedy plushie before a courple photoshoots and a meetup? The issue with Gucci crayons is that there are better quality shit for cheaper and people are buying it for the meme. The difference between you and those people is that you technically you are going to give it a use beyond an insta story so it's not that similar to your situation but overall it doesn't seem like a great idea for me.

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.

Small usakumyas and some of the medium ones are notorious for literally not fitting more than a fist in it. If you absolutely have to, buy it second hand so you'll pay 2/3 or half the price. Posing them outside and then putting them in your room or even bed as plush is also icky and it's best to handwash them (with the years, some start rusting around the metal handles when they get in contact with rain/water + some older one's fabric starts yellowing around the magnets), so you'll have to do that often.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

No. 1362383

yeah i see no issue with someone buying a cute version of an item they can use daily. thats actually the best kind of merch compared to useless figures, plain shirts with print, and make up people buy to never open then resell as expired. consoom people can stay mad when someone uses a practical item while they're just going to kill over in a pile of unused crap that will possibly be resold later for less than original value.

No. 1362459

As someone who has bought off Mercari before, there's an unofficial system of "liking" the item asking for a couple dollars off the price. So then you can send them an offer if you like of just small discount and see where the negotiation goes from there.

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.

No. 1362575

Thanks! I’ll see where it goes because it’s brand new in box. It’s only been like a day so I’m hopeful somebody will purchase it. I don’t think selling my anime dvds will be much easier. Might discount them a lot because nobody wants dvds anymore.

Wtf why is it 8k? I have a bunch of old Zelda games and I checked online they're only worth a couple hundred at most. Is it because they're not "used"?

No. 1362881

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.

No. 1363420

Are you sure it's not a bootleg? Bootlegs for very popular GB and GBA games are very popular, not sure if it's the same with other types of cartridges. Then again it all depends on a bunch of arbitrary criteria. My local retro game store sells overpriced 1st part Nintendo games for a lot after they "grade" the games, and will sell the same games for way less if there's not box, no booklet, and the games aren't in absolute perfect condition and just look ok or in a good condition.

No. 1363429

Posting again to say that covid contributed to this as well as grading companies because of the demand raising from normies being bored, having free time and sufferkng from nostalgia but not knowing about emulators. I bet grading companies saw this and lost their shit. My local retro game store raised their prices too because of this.

It’s happened to lots of collector stuff as well. I was in a different 2nd and Charles the other day and realized a lot of their manga prices reflected eBay listings. Old ass yellowed copies of Marmalade boy going for $15 per book. That’s more than retail prices.

No. 1363452

I saw that for the French Paradise Kiss manga, you can get the series for at least 75€ for 5 volumes in total, and the publishing house released an ugly as fuck new edition that compiles everything in one book. I got it because it was way cheaper but it's not convenient because I tend to read manga to pass time in public transport. I've seen similar shit with shojo manga that aren'r printed anymore, Nana isn't any better but the volumes are being reprinted right now so they're more expensive second hand than in stores.

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.
I use them! They make me very happy. Smells are super vivid to me so a good perfume can turn my whole day around.
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.

Throwing glass bottles into the glass recycling bin is fine because glass is 100% recycable. Even if you kept them they'd be thrown out once you pass away realistically anyway so I'm personally not big on holding on to things desperately trying to repurpose them, it's better to just not purchase it in the first place if you care about the environment.

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.

I've been selling a lot of stuff online to try and declutter and normally list on a bunch of different sites (mainly depop, ebay, and vinted since I'm a britfag). I usually set the price according to the fees that the site takes, so I list shit pretty cheap on vinted since they have no fees. Other than that I don't really curate my store, but I'm not into selling online seriously. I think people just mainly prioritise price and good reviews.

No. 1366354

Unless you are flipping items specializing doesnt matter. People will follow a shop to keep getting vintage y2k, cottage, kawaii, goth, but if you just want to sell your items from the closet people are just happy with good pictures, measures, reviews, and someone who replies. If you do flip clothes find a place that sells at .25-3.00/item then marks up to $15-80 unless you find gunne sax which went from $50 to fucking $200-300 a dress.

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

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.

For nonnies using amazon, make sure to squeeze as much free shit from them as you can. I just complained because DHL didn't ring my doorbell and left my package directly at a package station, and they gave me a 5 euro coupon. Once I ordered an expensive book that got slightly damaged during shipping, and they sent a new one for free. Another time I bought a binder that had some marks that you could easily clean off and they refunded me. Also if your package gets delayed for a day or two you're apparently entitled to a full refund, so screenshot the estimated delivery date. Fuck amazon.

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.

No. 1373010

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.

No. 1373075

Albums have "random" photocards in them. Most people will not get what they hoped for when they open their album since some members are more popular than others. Then they buy the photocard that they wanted. The FOMO kicks in hard and they start buying every photocards of the idol. Then they start collecting other members and groups because buying photocards isn't satisfying at all. It never ends.

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.

No. 1375365

I love these threads so much they've been a real eye-opener for me. I wasn't much of a hoarder but I was prone to buying random shit sometimes for the sake of it then quickly regretting it once the initial dopamine hit wore off. Seeing you guys point out how unnecessary a lot of these items are and how they could spiral into consoomerism like in those tiktok vids posted upthread have made me more mindful of how I spend.

Not saying there's anything bad with treating yourself occasionally, but it really can easily get out of hand. I got inspired to sell off like 90% of my old video games I didn't even play anymore, so now I've cleared up a lot of space and made some decent money. Thank you nonnas

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.

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.

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).

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.

No. 1386780

also, the moschino ones don't actually spray out of the windex-style head, you remove that part and there's a normal spray underneath. the lush ones actually spray from the head. i've tried them in store before and they were difficult to use and had the same problem windex has where some sprays will just leak out instead of properly misting. terrible design and looks like shit on a shelf. and they're not even good enough perfumes to justify any of it.

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.

The OW reddits are full of people defending blizzard, it's insane. Yes, a f2p game needs a source of income to keep it up, but you have to be retarded to praise a company that takes cosmetics that were offered for free for 6 years and puts a $20 price tag on them. On top of that, doing so in a "sequel" that has the same gameplay of the original game. I have to admit I still play the game sometimes and I've already seen plenty of people with cash shop skins. Whenever someone asks why they bought them, the best they can muster up is "uh, I thought it looked cool". I hope they're never in a position where lack of $20 means they cannot eat.

No. 1387179

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.

No. 1393238

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.

The fridge sounds like a nightmare. Did your parents ever experience a significant amount of food insecurity as kids? That’s a correlation I’ve noticed with people who hoard food in some sort of stash. Restrictive eating disorder people too.

No. 1393331

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.

An anklet is cute but ""permanently"" ~sparking~ a thin chain on that snaps off with a tug when clasps are a thing is the stupidest thing I've seen people buy in a long time, it's almost embarassing really.

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?

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’

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.

How the hell is that consooming? You're wearing the few pairs of crocs you own, not spiraling towards the picture you posted. When it gets to the point where you're in debt because of them, or when you're stacking them up like ornaments instead of wearing them, then it's consoomerism. You're fine.

It just feels excessive to me to buy/own more than pair of the exact same shoe in different colorways kek. I don't think I'll fall too deep into the worm hole in terms of color but it's easy to see myself buying a fuzzy pair or a different sandal style I don't own yet kek

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.

Don't think of it as lost money or else you'll fall into this trap where you don't get rid of them because your mind thinks of it as throwing away money. Think of the money spent as the time spent enjoying them. In the same way you wouldn't consider a good meal a waste of money because you could have eaten beans and rice, these dolls weren't a waste of money because they brought you happiness at the time.

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.

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.

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!"

I was browsing amazon for black friday and I realized I don't actually want anything, so I closed the site. I haven't bought anything aside from consumables this entire year.

No. 1429819

In my country stores were promoting black friday last week, I wonder if they were doing it on the wrong date. Going on a tangent here, but on the news they talked about how stores found the black friday results disappointing and that "people forgot about black friday because they are distracted with the world cup". Like, people are just poor and your sales are scam? Why would the world cup make a difference. Anyway, black friday was very artificially instated un my country a few years ago, a lot of stores just up their prices before it to then pretend they are selling things for cheaper and trick people into buying shit.

No. 1429927

That's what they do in the US too. The black Friday price is usually the manufacturer suggested price, retailers just bump it up to make profits, and then pretend you're getting a discount when they mark products as the manufacturer pricing.

No. 1429931

In my country (or maybe it's an EU regulation, I don't know), they specifically control for this practice now to be impossible, so the "70%" Black Friday promotions went down to 10-15% this year, it's hilarious. I managed to get a few machines and stuff for my new apartment, so I'm not bitching, but people won't just throw stuff out for a 10% off.

This shit should be illegal, and if businesses can't be profitable without throwing away loads of food then maybe they don't have the right to exist.

No. 1433727

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.

No. 1433731

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).

No. 1433739

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.

No. 1433749

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.

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.

They do this partially because companies have gotten sued by people who claimed food poisoning and stuff from eating the "old, leftover" food.

I have a stupid amount of cute/nerd charms and pins from mostly internet artists, a few officially branded, that I've mostly outgrown and are honestly pretty embarrassing to me now. Bit of cringe each time I see them. But I don't really know what to do with them. Apparently some artists get pissy and flag listings if you try to resell them even if it is for half what you paid. They say they won't but them some do, or maybe it's their fans. Regardless I don't have anyone in my life that would want them, but I feel like dumping them at a thrift store for scalpers is wasteful because I guess I'm still kind of attached to them or at least the money I spent/trades I did for them. I struggle breaking that attachment to them. If I still lived in a college town I'd leave them at a thrift shop there but… I don't know, I'm struggling. They don't take up much space now that I don't display them but I just feel stupid about it.

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.

No. 1446750

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.

I like hand made gifts! If you know the person's style/taste there shouldn't be a problem, because with handmade stuff it's easier to tailor them into a more personal gift, more so than store-bought items. especially if you don't know what you'd buy them anyway.

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.

I was doing kinda well selling some things that I didn’t want anymore but I ended up replacing them with other stuff. So all the money I earned went back into spending on similar shit. Except now I don’t want to sell them off even though I don’t have space, because I want to have and keep them. I’m also reluctant to throw out stuff because I’m thinking, I could use this in some way some time, or I feel like it’s too nice to throw away but not worth enough to sell. I don’t know any people and I live in a rural area so It’s a bit difficult for me to find someone who could the shit. Of course it would be so much easier to just trash it but I can’t bring myself to do that.

Got a new console for christmas (ps5) and I am absolutely NOT going to let myself consoom on it. I already bought one new game after only playing an hour or so of the one I already had (and there is nothing wrong with it. i do intend to play it too) and I've decided that from now on I'm not going to let myself by any new games for this console until I've finished (or decided to give up permanently) all my old ones. Buying games I want to play "at some point" in the future has never worked out for me and if I don't start playing a new game immediately the chances I'll actually end up playing it are slim to none. I still have so many brand new or otherwise never touched games for my other consoles and I'm not gonna let it happen this time. That's my new year's resolution.

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.

I bought some polymer clay to start making mini doll-scale foods again. I used to make charms and stuff as a teenager, sold them at anime conventions n stuff but it’s been years. Maybe that’ll keep me busy while I’m not buying more critters.

I love calico critters. I dont have any but i always want them… i want the cow family so bad. Lord give me the strength to save my money. Amen.

No. 1461813

You should go through and get rid of atleast half… you wont get your money back for them so dont hope for that. Your best bet is to find someone in your family with kids and dump them on them. Or if there are multiple kids talk to all the parents and figure out what the kids like and give them away according to that. Plushies are and will always be a huge waste of space. I love them dearly but i have great self control over purchasing stuff that will just become dusty clutter and things that lack practical use. It will suck in the moment and may even physically hurt. But in a month or so of time you will ba thankful for the extra space and not even remember the plushies you rehomed. Good luck and remember that dustmites thrive inside of stuffed animals! The older they get, the worse it is. Never have more plushies than you can wash and properly take care of!

Get a planner that doesn't have the month/year specifically, just blank weeks. That way if you don't use it for a week or two, no pages are wasted. I got one last year and I'm not even halfway thru, even using it every week.

worst part about this is that they contain animal products. some poor chicken lived it's entire short, miserable life in a cage so small that it could barely turn around all for eggs that will end up in the trash. some poor cow spent it's life living in dirty squalid conditions and being repeatedly inseminated and then crying for days because it's babies were torn away from it at birth and left out to die, all to go in the trash.

I never got an advent calendar as a kid, the idea of getting one for some snacks or teas seems nice. If perfume wasn't so harmful to the body, I wouldn't be against getting a channel advent with small samples (not full bottles) either. I'm more likely to use small things with variety than some bigger, single thing I grow tired of and resell. I'm more likely to scrapbook with mystery or gifted stickers, than ones I pick for myself. It's why I rarely by stationary unless I'm gifting it. I think we all enjoy small surprises.

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.
Semi-related to article I was trying to look for:

nta, i've seen these studies. A lot of skincare people i have seen have said that this is all bullshit, but i can't shake the fact that i feel like i am allergic to parabens since when i used to use lotions with them i would always get bad reactions. Another issue is that some of us need to use prescription skincare and it's not natural or clean at all.

>Another issue is that some of us need to use prescription skincare and it's not natural or clean at all
No shame in that, although it's awful alternatives might not exist. Personally, things that are unnecessary (ie not medical) that can be avoided, like perfumes, I will. At some level, coming into contact with these things is unavoidable because it's all over the environment, as well as breathing in what other people wear. I prefer to minimize my exposure. Like you, sometimes I absolutely rash out on certain products. I remember I had horrible reactions to that pink Johnson's lotion as a kid, on top of it absolutely reeking.

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).

The idea behind luxury advent calendars is that you get a tonne of luxury makeup/skincare for less than retail value. It usually doesn't workout because brands put stupid shit in there like stickers.

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).

As someone who collects plushies I feel like buying brand new is better than used. I wouldn’t want to buy a dust mite infected cinnamoroll plush from the 2000’s unless it was mine from that time tbh. Waiting for them to come in stock is better than blowing a lot.

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.
