- Look for happiness in things.
- Be concerned with how you express your identity and status through material possessions and clothing.
- Try to fit in materially. You want to fit in, don’t you?
- Go nuts with discounts, summer sales and the like. The cheaper the better. No, of course it’s not a marketing manipulation, duh! Corporations are good and really genuinely want to make you happy.
- Disregard your consumption levels recklessly. Go out and consume! Things, food, information, yoga, alcohol! Whatever it is, consume it!
- Hoard and collect! Accumulate things and stuff and keep it. Have many different variations of the same things. Yeah. Feels really nice and heavy.
- Disregard the environment. Ignore unethical and exploitative corporations. Just keep buying cheap stuff. Who cares where and how it was made. A shirt for $5 made in Honduras? Perfect.
- Watch a lot of TV and read lots of magazines. Admire creative commercials and beautiful ads.
- When you want to buy something, don’t think, just buy. New is good. Buying used, is like, you know, used, like disgusting.
- Buy at chain stores. At least you know where you’re at with their products, right? Wouldn’t want to take any risks buying locally or at a small business. Hell no.
- If you do end up wanting to get rid of something, just throw it away. Remember: We live in a throw-away society. It’s all disposable, right? It’s not like anyone else could use what you don’t need anymore.
