The Cost of All the Products Advertised in Popular Magazines

Glossy print magazines, especially fashion and lifestyle magazines, are filled with advertisements for goods that you can't afford. Some of these magazines, such as Vogue, are hundreds of pages long.

Noah Veltman, a journalist, added up the costs of all of the goods advertised in popular magazines for the month of June 2014. Jenni Avins of Quartz used that data to compose a series of charts. Vogue is, by a wide margin, the most expensive. 

But it's not just because of the staggering size of Vogue. The individual items are pricier. 

It's notable that Vogue does not have the highest percentage of page-length advertisements. That contest goes to In Style.
