    • omphaloskepsis times two!!seriously, i have reached the limit of my tolerance for cutie-pie hipsters who think they are the center of the ever-lovin' universe.i am throughttle drawings of little things you bought every day?? not even good drawings?? and for this you get a book deal because you have a cutie pie little blog and probably have a lot of musician friends in williamsburg? oh, right, it is all dressed up in words: a commentary on consumerism and the community of objects. oh my god - sho [...]

    • What you see on the cover is pretty much what you get: a series of colorful, aesthetically pleasing line drawings about objects and services a young woman has purchased from 2006-2009, sometimes with brief annotations. I spent at least an hour thoughtfully turning through the pages, pondering what was important to her and comparing it to my feelings about such things. The hints of her life that emerge, from the wedding to moving to her job, are just enough to get a taste of the person behind the [...]

    • This is a pretty cool project. Starting in 2002, Kate Bingaman-Burt photographed everything she bought; and followed up that prject in 2004 when she started drawing all her credit card statements (and intends to keep drawing until they are paid off). The first drawing in this book is dated 2006 when she started drawing just one thing she bought every day. I like this kind of stuff a lot; I like projects documenting what you buy/wear/do/eat. I also like her style which is funny and has lots of cl [...]

    • Kate Bingaman-Burt makes a drawing every day to document something she has purchased, and this book pulls together a selection of these drawings. I love the style and I love the colors, this is a really visually appealing book. Many of the purchases are small and mundane but also very relate-able, and these connections made the experience all the more fun - we like the same cereal! I am also always buying sunglasses! A voyeuristic but entirely enjoyable look at personal consumerism.

    • This book is charming, fun and funny. Once in a while I need a change up from my usual reads and this served its purpose. In the end you want to find the author immediately and buy her a cup of coffee or a beer and a snack. There's a new journal called What Did I Buy Today: An Obsessive Consumption Journal that is illustrated by the author. I love it and it's helping me curb my spending!

    • Definitely an easy read, considering it's all hand-drawn pictures with captions underneath, but it was insanely interesting. Comforting to see that other people buy as much crap on a daily basis as I do (and spend way more money doing so) and just interesting to see how much you can gather about a person based on their purchases.

    • Enjoyable - a picture book for adults, but got a little old after awhile. Did not breeze thru the last half of the book like the first.

    • (More pictures on my blog)Obsessive Consumption started out as a blog and turned into a book. It collects the sketches of items purchased by Kate Bingaman Burt over 4 years since she's been drawing them.It's like a diary of purchases. These are simple line drawings that are sometimes quite scary to look at, especially drawings of credit card bills. It's also a good reflection of the things we buy, and of how much things we buy.The author does buy a lot of different items and my only question is [...]

    • Author Bingaman-Burt pays penance by drawing all the things she's charged on her credit cards - sunglasses, coffee filters, french fries, diet Coke, shoes and a swan applique. The list goes on as her credit card debt rises. She even draws her monthly statements complete with her payment and interest rates. I'm fascinated with my fascination for Kate's mundane purchases. Oh what tangled webs we weave.

    • Fun project idea. Great art exercise. Good way to connect with and understand your own spending habits. Fascinating look into someone's stupid mindless consumerism. However, would rather have the details of how much she owed, analysis and feelings behind why she bought those items, and if she ever paid it off. Given the poor spending decisions, she deserved to be in debt. At least she was able to profit off it with this book.

    • Amazing. I wish I could see everything she drew/bought. The portrayal of the mundane, weird, and basic made me understand that perhaps my own issues of consumption just are. Less judgment, more awareness is what I need for myself.

    • Not the highest-quality drawings, but it's really interesting to see what artist Kate Bingaman-Burt bought each day for three years. I especially enjoyed the quirky comments and creative ways of illustrating the prices. I could look through this book again and again!

    • Illustrated mundane-ness has never been so addictive! Full review: pikaland/2010/04/09/review

    • As a woman interested in the dynamic bw art commerce economics consumerism personal finance responsibility and fun, I loved it. ESP when she draws her credit card stmts

    • Great idea and cute drawings. Nice book to flip through.

    • Wonderful and cute drawings. She is obsessive about what she buys in everyday life. I'm obsessive about her drawings right away.

    • Charming PSU prof draws a picture of one thing she bought for everyday, from wedding bands to pepto bismol. Good stuff and she has a show at the Land Gallery on Mississippi right now.

    • A book where a woman draws everything she buys. Cute book. Cute Idea. Gets a bit boring however.

    • fascinating. The author draws her credit card statement and then the items that she bought. I loved it.
