Consumerism

9.3.2011

Maybe in addition to my “fence” series, I should do a “consumerism” series.  This pictures makes me understand “mall disease” a bit better.  You know that exhausted feeling you get after shopping for a bit?  Well the full racks and countless decisions are overstimulating, and the constant “should I buy this?” debates are emotionally taxing as well!  It’s no wonder one often literally shops ’till they drop.

On a more positive note, sometimes shopping is FUN.  Having new clothing can boost confidence, trying new foods can better health, spending money on your hobbies can increase happiness.  It’s just important to balance all the purchasing, and keep in check the desire to always want the latest version and newest update.
