Kids say the darndest things.
Artist Sarah Lazarovic did and the result was her new book A Bunch Of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy, which gives us the lowdown on why we need to spend our money wisely… and reconsider those impulse buys.
While Lazarovic resisted window-shopping and the evil “rabbit hole” of Pinterest, the author curbed the powerful urge to consume by painting coveted items she loved. Although her prints are publicly known, Lazarovic compiled them into the quick-read, which includes tips and tricks on navigating the consumerist world, without buyer’s remorse and a deflated bank account.
We caught up with Lazarovic to pick her brain on the lessons we can all learn about our spending habits and the way we should deal with fast fashion.
