Instagram is one of everyone’s favourite apps especially if you’re a visual person. Now, the app isn’t the problem; it’s the people who run these particular accounts. You’ll either end up spending hours on their pages and wishing you were rich and imagining what life would be like or by the end of your day, you would have convinced yourself that you only live once and so you should buy whatever they’re selling.
If you see any of these types of pages on Instagram, run.
1. The food pages that invest in heavy photography
Oddly enough, these food pages usually pop up on your TL whenever you’re hungry. The hunger will either push you to buy the food or seeing the page will get you annoyed because you don’t think you can spend GHS 50 on food and GHS 20 delivery because after that, what else will you eat the rest of the week?
2. The wedding dress/decor pages that make you dream of your own day
That’s how you’ll be sitting there dreaming about what yours will look like and the things you will do different meanwhile, in real life, you’re as single as they come. Looking at wedding images will have you thinking about marriage and at the end of the day when you think about your life in general and whether or not you’re ready for marriage, then you stress. It’s not worth it.
3. Did someone say 10% sales on Bone straight hair?
Hair pages will instantly remind you that you’re broke. They will show you that your mates are using your monthly pay to buy hair when you are struggling to manage yours for a whole month but it is well. God no go shame us. Just unfollow them and save yourself the stress.
4. Thrift shops that don’t know the meaning of thrift
You know those thrift pages where their items are premium quality? Yes! Those ones. The prices are low but the clothes are perfect and so you end up paying for them. By the end of the day, money meant for your lunch during the week is what you’ve spent so you have to starve but hunger is temporal, the drip is forever. LMAO!
5. Shoe pages that remind you that your life is incomplete without those slippers
Whether your poison is either heels or sneakers, avoid pages that sell these otherwise, you’ll end up buying shoes in colours you never even thought of getting meanwhile you don’t even go out that much. If you don’t want to go broke anytime soon, avoid these headache-causing pages.
6. Influencer Pages; need we say more?
They are “influencers” for a reason. These ones will plug you with any and everything and at the end of the day, you’ll end up buying stuff you don’t even need currently. Also, they remind you with their lifestyle that you’re broke. The only thing you can do is live vicariously through them.
