A few remarks:

The debate you seem to be engaging here (rather than the one you state) is what kinds of factors inform consumer decisions. 

What's unclear to me at this point is whether you see what you're doing here as some kind of solution to consumerism or if you're simply describing how you typically buy things.

Are you trying to figure out how Americans SHOULD make consumer decisions? 

Or, are you trying to figure out WHY Americans make the decisions they do? 

Pick one of those questions as your debate and modify your claim so it attempts to answer that question.
