Buy Committee, it’s been a rough few months.

Not only is today Shep’s final day at The Inventory, but every day there’s a horrifying news story that makes me question my faith in humanity. On top of all that, my apartment was recently condemned after a fire in an adjacent unit. So that’s been a terribly stressful situation. (I wrote poetry, it was bad.)

I’m usually pretty good at looking at the brighter side of things but nowadays, it’s been incredibly difficult.

Look, I just want to be back to my former self. And while I know that it takes time, part of me thinks my recovery has been hijacked by Seasonal Affective Disorder. So, I’m seriously considering picking up a SAD lamp.


For those unfamiliar, light therapy lamps can help manage seasonal depression. Basically, it’ll act like the sun and you’ll be happier because of it. I’m sure there’s more to it than that, but that’s the jist.

The problem is, I don’t know where to start.

So, Buy Committee (that’s you), scroll down to the comments to share your experiences with your light therapy lamp. Help me decide which one to invest in.


Of course, we’re looking to help you decide on more purchases. So, if you’re still agonizing over something, email with the subject line “Buy Committee” or tweet us at @ItsTheInventory.
