If you're like me, you think about your purchases....I mean where your money goes....Voting with your dollar. Obsessive Consumption makes me think about my purchases and consumerism. Here's a quote from the shop that cleverly summarizes how it works:
"1. Every month a new zine comes out filled with daily drawings of crud
that I buy. You can buy the zine! Keep the cycle of buying going!!
2. You may subscribe to my zine so that every month you will receive a package from me!
