Men in Gorilla Suits Ep. 171: Last Seen…Consuming Stuff

Store display window - Men in Gorilla Suits Ep. 171: Last Seen…Consuming StuffChances are, you were bombarded by advertising today -- you probably didn't even realize it. Many of you probably bought stuff today as well. Looking around your home, it's probably full of stuff.

Marketers do what they can to get you to buy, while others tell us all to be appalled by consumerism.

This week, we chat about buying stuff!

* * *

We begin by talking about the first things we bought on a regular basis -- and what we spend the most on today.

We make it clear from the start that yes, we consume stuff; in fact, we chat about how often we go into stores for one thing and come our with a dozen things...and what we do if a store is out of the thing we are there to buy. What then? (And where do we go to buy our stuff?)

If you ever lost sleep thinking, "I wonder how often Shawn and Christopher shop for groceries, clothes, and other things?" then this is your lucky day! We also discuss whether or not we've gone out to purchase something in a major metropolitan area like the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and failed at the task. (i.e. Is the Metroplex full of all one can hope to buy?)

We chat about people who stockpile purchased items -- and whether or not there's ever a reason to stockpile goods. Are we members of warehouse clubs, or do we feel there's simply no need for them? Find out!

We come right out and answer this question: Do we consider ourselves consumers? (And then we talk about what we consume most.)

Find out what brands we would gladly promote...before we wrap it all up with this question: What is the future of consumerism?

It costs nothing to leave a comment, and the joy you will receive in doing so far exceeds that of buying a gold-plated pony! (So have at it!)
