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.

Is it worth the consoomerism thread to have a stocked shelf of various teas and spices for every type of cravings? I do try to use up the spices cuz I love trying new recipes to use the spices/herbs I have, and tea blends/sorts especially when the cold season arrives. But because I have so much, I couldn't consume or use all of it on the daily.

It happens, I used to have a lot of tea as well. I'd just buy some to try, end up not liking it or forgetting about it, or just not feel like drinking tea after a period of drinking it a lot. I don't think it's consoomerism, necessarily, since you can use it up surprisingly quickly.

They’re basically funko pops for women. A lot of adult collectors just hoard them because they enjoy the dopamine bump they get from a successful ‘hunt’.

Nona, I have at least 15 different teas in my house rn. Because I like different blends for different moods/seasons/times of day. It's worth it if you drink it! I drink from 1 to 4 cups every day and the variety really makes it special. Certain tea for cold days, certain for warm, strong black in the morning, soothing herbal in the evening. Or even pairing tea to my meals like wine! Classic black is good with sweets, berry tea goes nice with red meat, green (particularly sencha) for rice and seafood!
What bothers me about my tea consumption is that my favourite brand that has all my favourite blends with no viable replacements uses foil packets for every teabag. Teabags are already wasteful, but because I like to switch it up through the day, they're the only solution for me. But the foil drives me nuts. It's not even metal, it's plastic, like a chip bag.

No. 1731165

>>1731163
Samefag, but it's only wasteful if the tea is out there in the open, losing flavour and gathering moisture and you don't drink it.
I sometimes get teas I don't like, but my solution is whenever I ship packages or give gifts, include some of my unused teas as a freebie, because I love the idea of the recipient just curling up with a warm mug for my sake (it's not that the teas I don't like are any bad, just turn out to be not my taste)

Get loose tea leaves and a tea infuser in stainless steel. Almost every stores selling loose tea leaves will ask you how much of it you want and you can use your own container if you ask nicely. So you can try different teas and it tastes so much better. Don't go to brand stores, there are stores selling different brands, they are often cheaper. And when you do find a tea that you love, you can get it for cheaper on the internet. Just stay away from overpriced "healthy" tea and tea infuser made out of plastic.

No. 1731179

>>1731171
The ones I drink are pretty inexpensive and are in almost every supermarket(expensive compared to generic supermarket tea, inexpensive compared to loose-leaf from multibrand tea shops, at least in my country). Brewing loose leaf is frankly too time-consuming often for me. I get loose-leaf sencha and red tea (I am very particular about those for some reason), but that supermarket brand just has everything I like and it's decent quality and convenient, because I am almost always in a fucking rush. They STARTED to offer teas in paper packaging with a recyclable box with no extra wrapping and I REALLY wish they'd do it for all of their teas already.
Basically it may be I am lazy and it's all my own damn fault.

I try to brew only loose tea for myself (tea is all I drink besides water), but some of my favorites still come in plastic or foil bags, and I get a lot of tea bags as gifts from well-meaning friends and relatives. The foil and plastic still bothers me, but honestly, when I walk outside and see a trash can full to bursting with people’s Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts cups, I feel a little less bad given that a single tea wrapper is still way less plastic than most single use drinks.
I got some mini washi tins that fit in my purse recently and I love to travel with them, I use one for paper filter bags and one for whatever loose tea I’m into. Maybe it’s smug, but I really do love bringing tea with me places. I never say anything about it because I know I'll sound like an ass, but I do enjoy sipping on my cozy thermos of my favorite cheap organic green tea while my friends wait in line for nine dollar seasonal latte abominations.

The only thing I can think of is patching them out whenever they wear out. I'm poor and that's what I do with my pants or leggings. Ngl I even have gone out with my leggings all worn out in the middle (I'm sorry my thighs touch a lot). I wear them until there's no more options than throwing them out, and then I cut out the good parts where the fabric is still usable to patch future pants and leggings. Works with jeans too but it's more noticeable.

I hate everything that's based on subscriptions. I hate the idea that you're paying for something that could be easily taken away from you for example Netflix pulling shows or Spotify randomly removing shit from their platform.
I prefer to buy stuff on like physical versions like music, movies or games but if a game it's only available digitally or stuff like music or movies, I straight up pirate it. No reason for me to waste money monthly/annually for a service that could take away my favourite stuff just because it feels like it and the thought of losing my games because I don't have space on my console and the store might close down makes my blood boil, plus I want to be free to access my shit without limits/ads/internet anywhere and whenever.
I have a hard drive full of of stuff that I pirated 10+ years ago, like anime, shows, games and music and once I tried to pay like 1€ for a movie on youtube. The movie is gone, it was a matter of 2-3 years. BUT I PAID FOR IT GODDAMN.
I get that these sub-loving brainlets love the thoughts of paying "a little" for a shitton of shows but these people are the first to have a rage fit if netflix announces that they're gonna remove or cancel X show because reasons. Even if I pay a DVD like what, 10€, I know that movie is gonna be with me till I die and if you want to pay even less, just wait until it hits the thrift store shelves, same thing with games or music.

If something doesn't have a physical release, please pirate everything nonnies. Paying Netflix doesn't even support actors kek it's truly the shit.

My personal rule is that if I really like a show I pirate it and then buy the dvds/blu rays.
Hell I would rather watch it on tv, with a physical release I can pop the phys support anytime but if I have a busy period at work I may pay like 3-4 months of netflix and I won't end up watching shit. Hate that.

It's like Youtube Vanced/Revanced, not so much pirating as it is a modded version of the app that removes ads and has additional features created by the mod community. I used Spotify Dogfood for it for years but it's super dated and my friend made fun of me for using prehistoric Spotify like the ultimate poorfag, so I found an updated one called Spotify X and I love it.

I’ve about had it with certain Etsy sellers. You know the ones. They feel too safe in their compulsion to rip you off and not send what was advertised. Bought some food items for myself, as gifts (def my bad, I have my suspicions on their ingredient list authenticity) from a seller and they sent me similar looking products to the ones I ordered but no fucking cigar. Opened a case after two weeks of waiting when they suggested replacements and Etsy told me to send it back on my dime. Fine heavy package but fine I bought a label then Etsy refunded before I shipped out. I voided it. Then a week later that same seller finally emailed me a shipping label. I don’t even want their shit anymore but feeling pretty petty and wanna give it all away now. Upon checking their neg feedback every single one matched my experience. Why waste everybody’s time

On this list, fuck Crunchyroll.
They lure you in with "high quality! Immediate subs! Simulcast!" when in reality not only they are shit at subbing anime (they often "clean out" a machine translated text), you only pay crunchyroll. They often hide themselves as a way to stop piracy but they suck out all of the profit to pay like what, 3-4 subbers? Their profit goes to their weeaboo office and rent, they give like 2-3 cents per episode to the actual animation studios. It's always morally correct to pirate anime.
"B-but with p-piracy, anime wont survive!!!"
It survived for 30 years, with a lot of shows going way far the canonical 12-24 episodes per season without the streaming services boom, the quality actually decreased lately because animators can't just do like one ep/week but they have to animate whole 12eps batches so people can speedrun the whole thing on fucking netflix or crunchyroll and make content about it the day 0 it gets out.
Please, do not pay for anime unless it's physical releases, because the actual studio doesn't get shit, what actually matters it's the physical sale, the streaming services don't count, in fact you're only fattening their money hungry bellies. Fuck Disney+ and fuck ShittyRoll. Also buy the manga if you can.

Anybody else collect vintage novelty stuff?
I've been collecting these ceramic kitchen jars with faces on them for the past few years and have a small curated assortment on display in my dining room. I found out about these from the blog ShiftyThrifting and was immediately charmed, although I'm not sure why, their weird expressions amuse me greatly. Most were made in mid-century England but I've found ones from Japan and America too. Picrel is a "beet poot and friends moodboard" from the blog (I have three of the jars featured here). I like that they're hand-painted and unique (the glaze is too heavy over the lettering on some jars, hence "beet poot" instead of beet root), and that just adds to the charm for me.

When I get the items there is something wrong with many of them because of bad quality control. So I return them but then I come back and browse and buy too much shit again.

Delete the app from your phone (if it has an app, I don't actually know what site you're talking about) and use a site blocker, and make sure you have a different activity to do to occupy yourself with. Even though you can turn it off, it still helps, because just that little reminder can be enough. I managed to squash the time wasting window shopping bug I had for a while by blocking the main sites I visit and genuinely just finding something else to do until I could be more normal about it. I still visit them sometimes though, I have a bad habit of browsing when I'm bored.

Here's the method I use for my mom.
You find some nice fabric that is the same colour as the pants (I use t-shirt fabric for summer pants and fleece for wintery pants) and you get the same colour thread.
Then you cut out what is basically a pad with bigger wings (sorry for the imagery) and you sew it zig-zagging the stitch across the entire patch (not actual zig-zag stitch, just the straight one in a pattern over the entire patch), the IMPORTANT part is that you sew the patch on the inside of the pants. You put it on the inside and just stitch it on like that. With a similar colour it helps the worn-out transparency really well and it's barely even noticeable unless you spread your legs and someone stares at your crotch intently.

I feel like I went overboard this year, I have a full time job and got promoted but I live with my parents and don't pay rent so I got myself a PS5 and some video games, I got myself a new phone in January after some piece of shit assaulted me and stole the one I had before and my current one is more expensive, I traveled to Japan for three weeks and wouldn't hesitate to pay more for the sake of convenience (like doing the Osaka-Kyoto round trip by shinkansen for a few minutes instead of one or two hours with the cheap and slow train), I order food pretty often.

But at the same time I cope by thinking about how much money I've saved even after treating myself to nice things and how I used a shit ton of vouchers and gift cards I got from selling a lot of second hand books and video games for all of this and how the yen is way weaker than the euro.

Buying a house in entirely impossible, be realistic. I've checked that with my banker who told me I have a lot of money for someone my age who's single and he told me to consider buying but the interest rates at the time were way too high. Right now if I have to buy a place I would have to go to the countryside but then I would have no job opportunity whatsoever, but the interest rates will probably get lower soon according to some estimates, it depends on a lot of things and on some law where I leave that forces landlords to do construction work to make their places less polluting so they will all try to get rid of their 2nd, 3rd, etc. houses for cheap to avoid paying for construction work and repair.

>Stop being a leech to your parents now that you found a job.

My parents don't want me to leave. They're begging me to stay. I haven't found a place yet because rent has been way too high and my salary was shit until I got promoted last month and even when I was younger they ruined many opportunities that could have changed my life for the best just so I wouldn't get enough money to leave when rent prices were still normal.

I couldn't get a stable job until the second half of 2020, and at that point with the lockdown and then the curfew I couldn't even visit apartments until inflation got even worse. And all of this is partial my parents' fault. I didn't mean that my parents don't mind me staying. I mean that they actively don't want to let me get my own place at all. I couldn't even go abroad on an exchange program in uni even though they promised they would financially help me to reward me for being the first getting my high school diploma because "what if something happened to you though? what if you t-talk to b-boys when not with us?" which snowballed into me not getting the internship I needed to graduate until it was too late because nobody wanted someone with a boring resume like mine so I was held back a year just for that, and I graduated just a few months before covid, and my first stable job barely paid above minimum wage. Now that I think about it I'd say them not making me pay rent is the very least they could do for ruining my career prospects for the rest of my life just because they feared I would lose my virginity and eat pork as soon as I left.

It's pretty common, or at least used to be. My parents were told to get out at 18, and my parents pretty much expected me and my brother to do the same post highschool. Suffice to say we were not getting along when I moved out at 22, my mom thought it was ridiculous I was still there even though they had plenty of money and room for me - it was 1000% the principle to my mom.

This is crazy to me because where I live just getting your driver licence is expensive (you need to have done at least 20h of driving lessons before the test and almost everyone fails it the first time which means paying more than 20h of lessons) and each hour is very expensive and you can't get jobs that easily if you're not 18 yet. I couldn't afford getting a driver licence at all at that age and now that I'm 29 and could easily afford it I'm not even considering it because I can keep using public transport, I feel like it's too "late" to really benefit from it.

it's really helped curb the spending habits too cause I like to save a bit and treat her as a surprise or at least have something put away if something goes wrong with the house.

The whole move out when you’re legally an adult thing is rooted in the individualism present in western society. It’s so consumerist to waste money on your own little place that you never get to actually enjoy because of all the extra hours you have to work to afford it.

I wonder if you live in the same country as I do, if you do: convince a friend to let you drive around with their car and a learners plate, it removes the pressure of having to pay more for lessons and you get more practice in.
My driving teacher was trying to get me to pay for more lessons too, but I ended up just practicing more and passed the practical exam the first time around. I get that you don't need a car where you're at right now, but having a drivers licence is just one of those things that's generally useful to have, especially in emergencies. Driving someone to an appointment or to the hospital, transporting heavy things, moving, getting somewhere fast, getting somewhere in a storm, visiting a place with bad public transportation, transporting a pet ect.

i checked her website. one of those kawaii scoops (like in the video) is 32 dollars, or 42 dollars if you want it to be filmed. idk if the person who ordered this paid the film fee once or eight times, but if we assume that she paid once it's 266 dollars for all the junk in the video. if she paid the fee 8 times it's 336 dollars. this is especially painful because all this junk in the video is maybe 100 dollars max from aliexpress.

Yep, all this shit is cheap trash and the tiny little pen and key knives are a straight up joke when I see them touted as self defense. Glorified nail files, really wtf is a teenage girl going to do with that? It’s so despicable to me how this shit is marketed and sold by appealing to fear and then making it cutesy and aesthetic, all for junk that will amount to your own harm in a real situation. Go to any tactical gear store and get good pepper spray, that’s all you fucking need but god forbid it’s not encrusted with plastic shiny bedazzles that probably fuck up the grip. uwu gotta be cute and girly while fending off the creeps!!

Those cheap pepper spray things are a safety hazard. My friend gave me one to walk home with once, and I asked if I could do a test squirt. It literally comes out like silly string, not a spray. I thought it was defective but turns out all the cheap ones are like that, I'm not sure what you're supposed to do get the string in their eyes? Thank God I used it, not knowing and then trying to use it in a self defense scenario would be a nightmare. Best it can provide is intimidation maybe

I'm tired of Funko Pops.
It's not because they're ugly or cheap, to me is a bigger problem: at least where I live in Europe, they FLOODED comic shops. Even Funko Pops who aren't from comics/shows. Let's start by saying that I'm a weeaboo since the eraly 2000s so comic shops were my safe place and they were only about comics, the shelves got replaced by Funko Pops and the comics got put on piles on the ground and this is because funko collectors are cultish, lunatics fuckers who check every dent and every minor thing on the boxes and wont buy a 15usd figurine if the box is ruined, so the comic shop owners had to replace and rethink all of their spaces in favour of this plastic shit. Comics and mangas are much more delicate than them, if we're talking about it, and they put on the fucking ground, they also lowered the standards for the figurines and they're seen as an investiment, the average collector thinks like "Oh yes if I can keep this in pristine condition I can sell it for a fuckton of money later!"
Not even funko fans like funkos, they're playing an elaborate buck game.
I'm sad because during these years, the concept of "nerds" has been reshaped, from being an actual nerd with niche interest to everything that right now is classified as entertainment. People are calling themselves nerds just because they binge watch Netflix shit. Call me immature, a gatekeeper, an austitic, don't care, I don't like seeing people bitching about the condition of funko pops, which are kept in boxes anyway, complaining about minor misprints, meanwhile I have to fetch my stuff from the floor, in the same store and I pay more than them.
I wish Funko would open their own Funko Stores, they have the money for that, and leave our fucking spaces alone, I weep everytime I enter a videogame/comic store and I see the walls and walls of funko pops and squishmallows and loungefly shit….we needed to gatekeep more.
I don't buy from them. Even if it's difficult, if I see that a comic shop sells Funko, I do not buy anything. I know that without them they would close down, but they need to do better and not get fucked in the ass by the new, american, consoomeristic shit.

minus all of the unnecessary junk that will sit in a landfill for eons, another insidious thing about videos like this is that is feels like a low-key advertisement for the products she showed off for a few seconds like the calculator and phone stand so people will go to her amazon storefront and buy them from there. i hate the amount of shilling that goes on on tiktok and social media in general, you know these people don't use this shit they just want to make money off gullible idiots kek

There's something about western-made anime merch that seems uncanny to me. I don't know if I fried my brain too much around anime when I was a kid but I can instantly see when something is designed in the west and tries to mimic the "kawaii" style, it always comes off as weird because it's a different type of thing and it clashes terrible with the classic, comic book looking of the west, so the final design it's terrible. That being said, I don't get why someone would want a Miku thing from an american company, just buy a figure or a plush that's actually designed/made in japan, most of the times it's also cheaper with a better quality…

Made me think of picrel.
japanese merch has usually minimalistic faces and that's what makes it cute, western merch looks like shit because they think "oh anime means whacky expressions and style!" and they overdue it, completely missing the point that yes, anime is very stylized but only in specific contexts. Hell, even Squishmallows are cuter than this. "Let's just put a big smile and ^_^, anime works like this!" and it's so pathetic looking because you don't need to be a weeb to understand this, you just need to look at anime for what, 2-3 hours? It's a very simple style and yet these companies fail horribly,as I said it's pathetic.

Sorry for blogposting but I just want to share that I read a book about hoarding called “Stuff” by Randy Frost and Gail Steketee. It’s pretty damn good but it also mentions a PBS special from the nineties called Affluenza. I think the term has changed a bit since then but it focuses on consumerism and overconsumption. The website is from 1998 but it’s still up, which is kind of neat to see:

Like I got that she was going for a cutesy 50’s/bakery vibe but it was just horrible. The kitchen itself was nice but she was just slapping chunky paint on to expensive cabinets. She did a scallop trim on the fridge too and it was awful kek. These people don’t know how to style anything and just pick our any cheap crap that’s in the right color. Why not just get a white fridge? It harmonizes a lot better than stainless steel but it’s not overwhelming the space.

IMO it kicked into high gear with Big Bang Theory and lootcrate. That's when people first started buying a whole ass personality in a literal box. There was always shit like Hot Topic, but people then were still picking things to their own taste. The fake nerd shit was the first time people were just indiscriminately paying money for completely random things they didn't even care about, but they were supposed to shove all that random shit on a bookshelf and have it look like they had been collecting nerd shit for 30+ years. But it never looked "real" back then, because nobody actually collected like that before lootcrate came along.

I would argue it goes even further than that. The thing is that modern society kinda encourages people to squeeze into one of the preset personalities rather than develop one themselves. Modern technology just kicked this into overdrive because now you can share and compare every facet of your life with everyone else in the world. Like it used to be that if you were ‘goth’ or something you had maybe 1-2 peers to compare yourself to and you had to figure out what ‘goth’ meant to you personally. Now you just go on tiktok or something and just buy the fast fashion replicas of what all the other ‘goths’ online are wearing without actually doing any thinking for yourself.

No. 1772678

with your example, I also feel that it requires too much self-reflection and being openly genuine about a core interest/facet of your personality etc, which means putting yourself out there in a way that a lot of people would find too daunting when they could instead don a safe, pre-packaged one that a large number of people have also latched on to, with no threat of gatekeeping (at least not like older versions of the same subcultures had).

No. 1772692

True. It really is a shame that this consumerist mindset really took away the meaning of these subcultures. The purpose of these ‘identities’ were so you could interact with other people who shared the same genuine interest you did. Now anyone can just purchase a superficial version for $$ and not put any effort into actually learning or growing as a person.

Somebody posted about this thing a few days ago, but it must have been deleted. I thought it was just a shittier EZ Bake oven, but it's a 1 foot tall plastic oven capsule for a blind box toy. The kit comes with a wad of play doh and a mold, and makes an animal-shaped bun to stick in the oven, then it heats and drops the plush out of a trap door, and dumps the play doh somewhere. It doesn't say whether there's an electric heating element or it uses Hot Hands tech. Just so fucking wasteful all around.

EZ Bake is fucking terrible, too. Never get one for a kid, it's the worst gift. An adult has to watch the kid like a hawk, it's a fire hazard, they can still get burned, it's a PITA to clean, and no parent in the history of mankind has ever bought the refill cake mixes, so you're paying $40 for 4 shitty cupcakes.

Nonie please, I understand completely where you're coming from because I was in the EXACT sams position as you. I saw all these videos and photos of girls have these incredible bright pink pastel rooms and desktops, with lots of anime figures, sanrio, pretty and cute PC accessories and the whole razer pink keyboard, mouse and headset and it always made me feel like I wasn't girly and feminine enough. It made me look down on myself and consider myself less of a feminine girl because I had none of that, nor the money to buy it.
Please remember that these people post their rooms online as a way to showcase an abstract "ideal", heavily influenced by trends and indulged in mindless consumerism. You do NOT need a ton of plastic crap to be feminine or have a girly room. You can make a beautiful living space for yourself that will make you feel way more fulfilled if you take your time and realise all the crap we see online isn't an accurate view of reality, our perception has been skewed by social media as it has become a space for people to one-up eachother or to circlejerk.
If you feel like you want to make your room more girly and on a budget, you can always look for some pastel duvets, cheap fairy lights, some art prints, plushies, even a cute tapestry to hang on your wall. I used to go gather flowers bouquets and tape them on my wall to make a cute flower collage. Take it step by step and give your own spin to your room. I promise you you're more than worthy to have a beautiful room, you are girly enough and no amount of cheap AliExpress tat will take that away from you. Don't let consumerism and over glorifying of an internet microtrend to define you so harshly.

The Christmas stuff is the one that gets me, they didn't even wait til after Halloween like usual for all the crap to flood into the shops this year. They are even selling Christmas food right now, I saw Christmas cakes the other day that expire before December, let alone Christmas day. It's nuts.

And Halloween stuff is still trying to be flogged at half price, which will likely be dumped eventually from noone buying it.

I used to be on that sub but I had to stop because it was getting ridiculous. People were throwing out their entire skincare just to buy new skincare even though they didn't even know yet if the new skincare would work for them. Buying entire "hauls", irritating their skin to shit cos they didn't bother introduce slowly then asking what MORE products they needed to fix everything. And yeah I'll be that sperg about sheet masks. Single use skincare should be banned.

Why the fuck would you put Chinese makeup on your face idk. I suspect half the reason why these people don't just go to a local makeup counter/shop is the pretty packaging of some of the Asian brands.

I picked up some useful tips from the sub but yeah the consoomerism is unbearable, people just buy for the sake of buying. But I think lot of skincare subs are like that? The obsession over looks goes really far too, I mean I also would like to avoid blemishes or wrinkles but people on Reddit act like your value as a woman is just extinguished if you get a single wrinkle. It makes me sad because I'm genuinely interested in skincare from a scientific approach, but all the subs are full of people who are neurotic about it and acting like you NEED to be getting tretinoin and botox.
I wish it were possible to just have a chill group swapping tips, but instead it's people who blow all their money on 50 bottles that take up all the space.

I was in high school when K-beauty started gaining popularity (I'm mid-twenties now) and I remember buying so many products to get "perfect, bright, glowy skin". In hindsight my skin was fine, but like other nonnas have mentioned, my skin started getting acne from using all the products. I bought what was hyped up and what looked cute. So many people go on about how Korean beauty is "better" and "more advanced", however sooo much of it is full of irritating ingredients like fragrance or ferments that can cause even more problems. I still use some things, but it's not the be-all-end-all of skincare like some of these fanatics think.

I used to be a beauty consoomer and that was one of the worst consooming habits because i ended UP throwing alluring of it out because the skin care destroyed my skin barrier and male my skin worse and the shitload of hair creams/treatments/shampoos/conditioner that i bought ended up irritating my scalp, damaging m hair and causing hair loss.

I also have chemical-traction alopecia now so that sucks. The scarred follicles did not regrow. Thankfully i have thick hair follicles so the lack of hair is not that noticiable. It's ironic because the reason why i started consooming hair care in the first place was because i wanted my hair too grow faster or for my hair to be more manageable because everyone kept telling me how my naturally frizzy hair looked unkempt.

It gets as bad as those 10-step skincare routines. I’ve learned to live with it and if I feel like having smoother hair, I’ll just straighten it. It’s too much effort and money to try to “control” my hair texture. Also I’m kinda lazy kek.

Because consoom tiktoks made people think they needed to buy super expensive haircare brands like Olaplex to get nice hair. The problem is that their products are pretty strong and easy to misuse so there are plenty of anecdotes online of people damaging their hair by using said products. There's even a lawsuit against them right now because "customers have suffered from hair loss, bald spots, blisters, and scalp injuries" so it's definitely possible to damage your scalp/hair by using certain products.

I understand what you mean, it definitely comes off as throwing money around as a way to substitute having a personality. I don't give a rat's ass about the normies who take a family trip to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, I'm thinking of the holier than thou, rich white Westerners who constantly go on overpriced vacations and have the most vapid, tourist-trap experiences and then act like they're so enlightened. So many of them have a white savior complex when they go to non-European countries, and it's especially annoying when their cute little touristy attractions come at the expense of the marginalized people they claim to care so much about. See: all the Hawaiian natives begging tourists not to come, but people care more about pretty beach photos for Instagram.

Not the original anon, I'm the one who mentioned Hawaii, but I think the focus on "consoomer" tourists isn't about the people who go to timeless historical and cultural landmarks like the Sistine Chapel, but more about the types of tourists who flood destinations that become trendy overnight due to TikTok and other social media. It's like this anon said >>1781342 with the American woman who wanted to see Bali, we all know that woman and 90% of the other tourists going there have zero interest in the local culture and history and just want to mindlessly go and shit up the place, completely fucking over the local residents so they can spend the entire vacation on their phone making sure that all their followers know how cool and well traveled they are.

I agree with you and that was basically my initial point but the people who travel for whatever reasons they have to think I'm calling them out. I'm interested in cultural tourism but most normies obviously are not going to non european countries to understand their culture, they're going there to party, buy a lot of shit and get plastered. then when they go to european countries, they only go to the Sistine Chapel whatever important spot they know and don't even try to see anything much else either, let alone even leave the capital.

Granted, I watched this without sound, but it cracked me up when she zoomed into the little cartoons at the bottom of the thin cutting mats. I imagined she was saying how cute they were or something. Whenever people buy shit for that reason, a little cartoon slapped on to the lowest quality option possible, all I can do is laugh. Like really? That’s all it takes to part you with your money? You see a little line art cupcake and forget you don’t need that thing, you have other options at home, there are higher quality items you could buy?

I don’t think it’s nearly as bad as other stuff, unless you’re using it to have content for social media. If you always post it on insta or wherever then consoom level jumps up immediately.

But culture around music in general is really consoomy. a lot of people constantly consume music to the point of minor dysfunction or to cope. A lot of people spend tons of money on paraphernalia or shit like record players and records just for the aesthetic. And for these people what bands you are into often dictates what clothes and other shit you consoom in order to look cool and “different”

I went with my friend to Disney Sea when we were in Japan and it was the biggest waste of 9,800 yen I've ever spent. They had the ride queues on an app, which didn't even work that well because we had bad signal, the food was shit, and all the gift shops had were those Duffy and Friends plushies. ALL of the stores. I thought Disney Sea was supposed to be like Epcot but Epcot is 100x better than this. At least they have country-appropriate food and shop junk. At Disney Sea, it didn't matter if you went to the Arabian Coast or somewhere else, all you could get was flavored themed popcorn (incredibly boring and overpriced) and Duffy stuff. Trash.
So TL;DR: I judge everyone that goes to Japan and its Disney parks. It's ass. Peak consoom.

It's almost impressive how stagnant her art has been for so many years, and she's still as bad a consoomer as ever. I know influencers get sent a lot of supplies as well, but young artists follow in their footsteps and end up with these massive collections of things they never use.

There's something that bothers me more about art supply hoarding when it's hundreds of low quality, dollar store tier paints. Spend a week learning basic colour mixing and get a set of twelve or less high quality paints and you'll have most of the paint you'll ever need.

I used to finish multiple books a week to keep up with all of the hyped releases on booktube (book youtube) and it was kinda miserable when so many of them were just mediocre to bad and I paid money for them kek. Now I only read a couple a month but I still feel like I'm inadequate as a reader mind you I've read almost 50 books this year because of how much reading as been commodified and turned into a sport to brag about. People care less about the quality and more about how fast they can get through a book to say they read it and so they can add the book to their "read" shelf on Goodreads and other apps. This is why I feel like there's been such a rise in shitty romantasy type books being published and kindle unlimited indie books getting popular. They're like junk food—they're quick to consume and gives the person consuming them instant gratification.

Sorry to samefag but I ran a bookstagram account for a while and it's true, if I posted a photo of an eARC on my kindle the engagement would be so much worse than my photos with actual books. This is also why people value physical ARC's over eARC's and are willing to spend $$$ on hyped upcoming releases since it's something you can show off vs a file on your device despite them both being early copies of a book.

This is exactly why certain editions and early copies of books are so sought after, people want them so they can have bragging rights and post photos where they'll get dozens of jealous people in the replies (which also boosts their engagement) even if they don't care about the book itself KEK. Sounds retarded but it's true, in the book collecting community people will jump through hoops and spend months to years tracking down certain editions just so they can say they own them.

I just spent 45€ in a philosophical book I am yet too uninitiated to understand. There are only a couple of rare editions of that book in my native language and the last one has already sold out so I decided to buy a used copy (that is actually new) in case they completely vanish from the market. The price I've payed is actually not very different from what it costed brand new but I am nevertheless ashamed. It's the Red Book by Jung but I will read it only after I'm familiar with his work.

one of the best things i've done regarding reading as a hobby is deleting my goodreads account. i wasnt going to because I was afraid of forgetting the titles/authors of books but I bought a small notebook and I write the title, author, and date I completed it along with an entry about how I liked it or if I didn't at all. Getting rid of a rating system (1-5 stars) and not feeling guilty about dropping books I already marked as reading on goodreads helped me really enjoy it again as a hobby and helped me weed out garbage i felt i had to read but didnt really want to.

Then she made a whole video about it about how lolicon is disgusting. You bought a lolicon figure, what were you expecting? Don't listings and reviews online feature all aspects of figures?

I feel like the concept of decluttering, to a lot of people, means that you get rid of things you're not using currently, which is weird to me as someone who is definitely not rich but also not completely poor I buy things with an intent to use immediately but keep in mind I will use it later if I need it. my thought process is that if I have something I will keep it because I might need someday so throwing away feels pointless unless I already have something that serves that function. like for example I was watching a random person decluttering on Youtube and she threw away a recipe book and said if she ever needs she will repurchase which is even more wasteful than buying it to begin with. so in a way I think my tendency to actually keep things saves me money but it's not hoarding per se because I keep my resources in check and nothing is going unused or have many of the same object. years ago (even before the decluttering trend was a thing, like 2013) I went through a throwing everything away phase because I was moving elsewhere and I wish I kept more things as I find myself rebuying them because I need them.
what I'm trying to say is that if you have a couple of things you use rarely but still save it, don't feel bad for having a small hoard because rebuying things you previously decluttered is even more wasteful. I think a lot of influencers declutter so they can buy more, it's not like they want to live a life with less objects, they're just going to replace them. which to me, feels hypocritical. to me, the point of decluttering is slowing down and/or halting purchases, instead of getting rid of things you already own.

You've reminded me, another kind of merch I really don't see the appeal in are those tsum tsum things. They're like log-shaped, soft funkos imo and very few characters translate well into the style (tbh I understand figures more than plushies as merch in general, but that's probably just because my favourite characters never translate well into one lol).

Sometimes it feels like if something is simply branded as 'cute' it's enough for some people. Feels like a similar mindset to the 'it pink so must buy' earlier in the thread

The way she attaches sentimental value to the most basic plastic crap is concerning. We all have things that we have emotional attachment to, but it's normally heirlooms, special gifts, or hand-me-downs. I think she has trauma surrounding her daughter's health that she maybe hasn't properly addressed in her therapy, because she keeps a lot of stuff that reminds her of her daughter, or has her daughter's name on it. The stuff her daughter is going through is awful, and I can't imagine how she feels watching her baby go through that, but her consoomerism is getting worse, not better.

I'm honestly surprised to see anons calling him names when the reason their marriage suffers is likely because he's going into debt supporting her thousands-a-month garbage habit all the while collecting medical debt from their daughters complications. She clearly has no intention of stopping, the problem in this situation is her and she shouldn't be coddled or enabled. This is genuinely pathetic, especially considering her daughter's health concerns, and instead of acknowledging how horrible and selfish this behavior is, some anons are saying "aw well gee it's a coping mechanism because of what her daughter went through". Nah this woman needs a reality check to slap her in the face this is vile. She is pushing them so far beyond their means.

How is it likely? The guy could be an abusive piece of shit or abandoned the family because of the effort it would take to take care of a child with health complications. In no way is one more likely than the other. He married her when she was a consoomer, it's probably because of one of the reasons I listed since she has apparently always been like this according to anon >>1787233 and therefore he married her when he knew she spent a stupid amount of money on frivolous things.

What even is this logic? They are no longer together and abusers do not display their abusive behaviour initially.

The simplest answer is probably that they have shit taste or associate food like this with being a kid and therefore cute (iirc there was some kidcore meme about Happy Meals at some point?). There's also the angle of making junk food look more ~aesthetic~ by changing its presentation (side note but the way you plate food, even shitty MickyD's, can really elevate a meal and how satisfied it makes you feel, so there's that too). The people super into all this pink cutesy crap have very childish tastes and habits that they can now express freely due to being some level of independent, and I wouldn't be surprised if they either grew up in an environment that stifled or indulged these things.

Beige junk food can also come across as 'golden' with the right filter, especially next to all those pastel pinks, so it it probably is visually appealing to people who aren't thinking about it. The same could be achieved with nice pastries though and probably look better, if a bowl of lush fruit is too adult and responsible for this crowd.

That's not even close to how places throw stuff out, little gets actually gets removed from the shelf because stores will just clearance it until it sells. If it's returns or unsold stock they can't sell even after clearance, they tally it up and ship it back to the manufacturer to get a slight refund. If they did throw it out like this (which they don't) they would be in bundles of old skincare together in a bag, not a curated collection of purses, skincare, candles, and clothes. Tj maxx is also 50% kids toys, homegoods, and and cookware, and that stuff is the stuff less likely to be sold. where the hell is that? You're telling me they threw out a coach bag without even putting a clearance sticker on it?

My ex bf only cared about fantasy series.

It’s a shame because I got him into cinema and we had many good conversations about movies we saw together. His text analyzing skills were on point, so I think reading a wider variety of books could have really made him reflect on different ideas and perspectives. I finally managed to broaden his horizon a little bit when we got into listening to audiobooks together before bedtime.

Fellow OC nonnie. This reminded me of all the bad experiences I had going to Disneyland as a child. I remember grown adults, probably in their late 20s-early 30s, pushing me out of the way, on my 7th birthday, to get a pair of Mickey ears during the park's anniversary. My dad ended up pulling me out of the way and telling me we could buy it on the way out when the park closed. I was excited, because I wanted a hat like my dad's from when he was a kid. I watched all of the vintage Mickey Mouse Clubhouse VHS tapes and thought they were the cutest. My family was poor, it was literally the first time buying anything from the park, and the last. We only happened to be there because my mother's childhood friend was a park manager and had extra tickets. Those women, you could tell went to the park often and lived nearby…stereotypical overweight Hispanic girls with bleach blonde streaks over dark brown hair, trading pin lanyard, thick rimmed black glasses, WAY too tight yoga pants, and Starbucks in hand.

Although it's possible, it's unlikely and relatively harmless. If anything, romance in media has set some basic boundaries for me. If it were not for movies, I would not know a man should remember my anniversary and make and attempt to show appreciation through things like flowers. My father never did anything for my mother. Most men make no effort unless you present expectations first. Obviously I had no examples growing up. "Higher" (basic) expectations make men mad. Most media don't really overdue on how relationships should be at their high points, only that they're not going to be like that all the time. The fact that relationships with men rarely have high points is why women consume said media in the first place.

Do these actually help anyone destress or is it just a marketing lie that buying and playing with baby toys will calm us down. Maybe one as like a desk toy. idk I feel like a hot bath and video games would be more easing than fiddling around with these.

I enjoy having a couple fidget toys of different textures and types but honestly the best destresser is petting a purring kitty cat. Nearly 20 years ago before fidget toys were a consooomer marketing phenomenon my 5th grade gifted teacher had a bucket of diff fidget toys for us kids to choose from at the start of class. It seemed to help us focus on class without getting distracted (or becoming distracting to the others). I can see a teacher of younger grades having a large collection for that reason. If I had more friends that visited me I’d probably have a few more fidgets than the couple I have so I could offer them to my friends and their kids when they visit. But for personal use, selecting from such a large selection of fidgets would be stressful in itself kek.

AYRT, I don't have any problem with romance or even smut.

I can see where you're coming from nona, but I'm in the same boat of thinking it's warping women's perceptions of romance. I don't have an issue with women reading steamy wish-fulfilling fantasies about a really hot guy who falls in love with them but most of these popular books aren't just that. They're filled with abusive, rapey, manipulative men. I can't find it now, but I saw a screenshot of a tiktok book summary with about 100k likes fawning some smut book's scene involving the love interest bending the protag over a boat, forcing her head down in the water and roughly fucking her while there were sharks in the water. I won't even get started on Colleen Hoover's male love interests who would be jailed for DV if they were real.

Unironically I think this is the female mirror effect of the increasing early access and normalization of violent pornography that the internet has brought. Both men and women now think that sexual violence against a woman is sexy and exciting because they've been exposed to pornography since they were 7 or 8 these days. While men goon themselves into becoming violent sex offenders or trannies women are memeing themselves into jacking it to being a DV victim by a muscular werewolf fae. Dark times all around.

it's very obviously an unhealthy cope, it's on the same level as women thinking onlyfans is empowering.

Late, but this was a trend some years ago on YouTube. Some people will actually dumpster dive for stuff like makeup and perfume and try to sell it for profit on eBay.

Nta. I have mixed feelings on this. On one hand, it sucks this is is all being thrown out and wasted. Apparently, this girl donates what she finds. On the other hand, there’s a gross factor to this. Not sure if you should donate eyeshadow that’s been collecting bacteria in the dumpster. Seems like a health hazard to your eyes. I dunno.

I won one of these with my genuine favorite idol once when I bought 3 different $15 albums and got super lucky. I genuinely enjoyed it but it's so baffling to go into credit card debt or whatever over. After I won that one time I thought I could get lucky again and bought four of the same album and felt really stupid after even though I'm financially able to buy stupid stuff like that. You can't do anything with these albums, they're kinda big, and practically worthless after purchase.

The fidget spinners started this damn craze I swear. Fidget spinners reportedly can be helpful for some people/children who need something to fidget with but somehow they became a fad that filled the shelf of every fucking store and every classroom. I think they were probably still being marketed as a fidget device for ADHD etc, but became more of a "toy" when they got so huge. I believe the popularity of fidget spinners and the similar fidget cube conditioned so many parents and zoomers to just believe that any gimmicky toy labeled as "fidget" will help them to focus/destress/stim or whatever. Fidget items were already stereotypical for neurodivergent people and now everyone has ADHD and autism and as with everything you have to make that part of your personality so they have to have 30 fidget toys to prove they're #actuallyautistic. I wouldn't even be surprised if the literal chew toys for autists were trendy. Parents are probably just buying all these fidget toys for their iPad toddlers because the kids see it on TikTok and Youtube and they're conditioned to see all fidget toys as an easy fix for how unnaturally restless kids are now.

There were a lot of parents and teachers who hated the fidget spinners because they were obviously just a gimmick that was distracting classrooms and would all be in landfills in 2 years. So reportedly they were prohibited by a lot of teachers and even schools, like how other fad toys like silly bandz were. All this shit will too. Like, you can diy some of this stuff, put some slime or sand in a balloon and it's a stress ball. Make them out of paper like vidrel, which I find very cute, there's a nice part to alot of toy trends at least that when something is trendy creative kids make their own. The activities of making their own fidget toys seems to me like it would be miles more stimulating than just giving them cheap shein shit.

Samefag just to add that creativity and imagination isn't dead with young zoom zooms, there's a ton of trends, which I really only know because of how they all have social media and that there's so many content creators milking them which is bleak but… at least kids making silly stuff out of paper isn't dead?

Things like
>paper squishies
>play pretend running a small business that sells candy or lipgloss
>play pretend cleaning carpets? vidrel is a parody of that kek i'm not going to link any actual kid's video but they exist
>pretending to be fairies or a fairy hunter, the fairy kids make videos where they're "flying" and it seems the fairy hunters are just trying to troll them or are little emos
>customizing cardboard boxes to use as masks for their own boxsonas
>wigs made out of construction paper or yarn for cosplay
>gachalife movies which are like modern movie star planet or goanimate movies
>diy surprise toys/blind bags, all made out of paper

Still a lot of these are consoomery and directly spawned from something trending, like that paper squishy vid in my last post is just BRANDS make toys out of brands! And the roleplaying a #bossbabe who resells cheap aliexpress crap. If some type of collection, craft, or task becomes trendy on TikTok you can just assume there's kids out there roleplaying it with intricate diy props.

Even sealed makeup can be potentially unsafe. Hard to say because I don't work at the place she's dumpster diving, but sealed beauty products can be tossed because they are recalled, expired, or discretely tampered with (all unsafe). I've had to trash a ton of makeup at my work because a crackhead stole it and the cops recovered it from their crackhead van kek, we couldn't trust that it wasn't contaminated so we tossed it. Bottom line, I don't think it's worth it to dumpster dive for makeup or anything cream/powder based in general.

No, if yen goes down in value, you need to exchange less of your own currency to meet the value of 1 yen, because 1 yen is now worth less.

Works the other way around too, if your currency goes down in value, you now have to pay more of your own currency to meet the value of 1 yen.
