‘Obsessive Consumption’ by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Almost every day of your life you will buy something, whether it be groceries, magazines or a new car… well, unless you’re a freegan. This idea of constant consumption is the focus of Kate Bingaman-Burt’s newest book Obsessive Consumption, where she illustrates one of her purchases every day for over two years. It’s amazing to see all of the random things she buys over such a long period, and definitely makes you think about how much you consume on a day-to-day basis. Plus her illustrations are all pretty funny and oftentimes have little personal notes on them, giving each purchase a bit of life.

And if you want to see more you should definitely check out Kate’s Obsessive Consumption website, the site that started it all, as she keeps it updated nearly all the time and is still continuing the project.
