Hannah K. Lee's Shoes Over Bills - in which the illustrator equates the cost of shoes with other, less glamorous expenses - makes me laugh. While I don't think I've ever spent the dollar equivalent of emergency dental work on footwear (I'm in these almost every day), I will admit to spending shameful sums each month on things like oysters. Artisanal dairy products. Mysterious cosmetic potions with names like Mermaid Spray. In short, on some level, I can relate.
