Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Today is our last day publishing on Racked. Thank you for reading and watching (and commenting and tweeting and emailing!) for the past 11 years. We’ve put together some best-of lists for you to enjoy, and our entire archive will remain available on the site.
Check out the newly launched The Goods by Vox for stories and videos about what people buy, and — more importantly — how and why. You can sign up for The Goods’ newsletter here.
