Free.99: Life Advice at a Low Price

Free.99: Life Advice at a Low Price documents the philosophical sayings printed on the packaging of Trisonic products, often found at discount stores. Catalogued by their SKU (stock keeping unit), the products and their corresponding quotes are found on each spread. “Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive” accompanies door hinges. “Our thoughts and actions create our destiny of heaven or hell” accompanies a toilet tank rubber flapper. The cover mimics an inventory sheet detailing all of the products found inside the zine.

Take a closer look during your next visit to the discount store, and you might walk out with more than just a nondescript wholesale product and an impulsive $1 Arizona iced tea.
