Hipster Finds Lifestyle Too Expensive, Reverts Back to Mainstream


“All the stuff I was doing was great. Kale salads and IPA’s are delicious, but you know what’s also fantastic: cheap stuff.
Bud light, frozen chicken and pizza, Coke. Was I saving a lot of money on clothes? Absolutely. I mean, I was buying stuff from thrift stores that homeless people probably wouldn’t wear. And, because I rarely showered, my water bill had never been lower, but those discounts pale in comparison to the money I save when I go to Kroger and buy a half gallon tub of ice cream, instead of chive and lentil flavored froyo from Whole Foods Market.”

Your Say

Wait a doggone minute- you mean the concepts of hip or fashionable might actually be marketing ploys to get people to spend more money?

You can wake up before noon without being a square.
