haha yeah, I totally get roped into buying things because of packaging! Expecially if I think I could reuse that awesome packaging. I love things that come in cool tin boxes, or have really cool designs on them. I have boughten my fair share of inpulse buys based on the packaging, not what was inside!
I also love that a lot of the cereal boxes have gone old school. like captian crunch and fruit loop (over in the US), that makes me want to buy all of them and just display them on the shelf!

I know, I am a sucker for good packaging, have to say now I just take pictures of them. My boss reduced my hours, grrr and blah. So spend most of my time looking for another design job

Haha Yeah I know what you mean, I havent had a job in forever. Crafting all day is super fun, but I start to get cabin fever after a while! Do you ever buy a album from an artist you havent heard because the cover art looks rockin? I have! sometimes it turned out to be pretty sweet, and a few times it tuned out awful!

Usually I don't but I made an exception for the bottles of Arizona Green Tea. I just love the Japanese theme. They stand in front of the window right now. I have 3 bottles, but I believe there are more so I need to go to the shop and look for other designs.

I think everyone does to a degree as nice packaging makes an item look more presentable and beautiful -- as such -- therefore people think it is a better product. Well that's my theory, but I don't think I would go out of my way to buy something with nice packaging purposefully...
