Quote of the Day

"Soon, more and more companies will go out of their way to play on our fears and insecurities about ourselves, to make us think we're not good enough, that if we don't buy their product, we'll somehow be missing out. That we'll become more and more imperfect; that we'll have dandruff or bad skin or dull hair or be overweight or have a lousy fashion sense. That if we don't use this shaving cream, women will walk us by without a glance, that if we don't pop this anti-depressant we'll be a wallflower forever, that if we don't wear this brand of lingerie no man will ever marry us (and we remind you that you're getting older and you're starting to look it?)."

- Martin Lindstrom, in Buy-0logy -

So watch out, people. Be a smart shopper.

The quote really sums things up. I try to only buy what I need, but not things companies tell me I need.
