An affinity for pricey avocado toast: undisputedly the reason we millennials can't afford the down payment on a home. You know, along with our bad Starbucks habit and desire to Uber instead of driving drunk.

So enter @theavocadodream. This new "Instagram magazine" by Curbed is here to show us all the pretty homes we could own if it weren't for our nasty avocado habit.

"We cover homes on the market for $1 million or less, and break down just how many years of avocado toast it would take to purchase the property," says Curbed.

In other words, they're speaking in terms our silly "snowflake" selves can understand β€” g'bless. Check it out:

"You'd have to buy 144,222 servings of avocado toast to own this home, listed at $649,000. The toast would come from 'nearby' ( 20 miles away ) Mystic Cafe where they sell it for $4.50."

"Own this peanut-sized, less-than-250-square-feet walk-in closet for the equivalent of 135 years of avocado toast; it's listed at $495,000. The toast would come from nearby @buvettenyc where they sell it for $10."

"This penthouse could be yours for the equivalent of 213 years of avocado toast; it's listed at $709,000. The toast would come from nearby @bakermillerchi where they sell it for $9."

"Own this angular cabin for the equivalent of just 94,400 servings of avocado toast; it's listed at $590,000. The toast would come from nearby @hitop_fresno where they sell it for $6.25."

"This funky Victorian could be yours for the equivalent of 240 years of avocado toast; it's listed at $575,000. The toast would come from nearby @farleyscoffee where they sell it for $6.50."
