Would you rather spend a sunday afternoon stitching pom poms to a beach bag, or would you rather work for 255 hours to buy this one?


What a thought-provoking question! As a lover of all things crafty (though my ‘skills’ stretch to patchy knitting!), I couldn’t think of anything better, or more relaxing, than spending a Sunday afternoon stitching pom-poms to a beach bag. Its been a good few years since I’ve made a pom-pom, but hopefully it’s like riding a bike…! I’m also not quite sure I’m ‘hip and trendy’ enough to pull off the Dolce and Gabbana bag- plus I’d probably forget it and leave it on the train, and it costs about the same as a years rent…! However, I can’t help but smile when I look at all the room-brightening pompoms!

Fascinating to think of things in terms of hours of work though- I regularly catch myself doing it when weighing up the decision of whether to buy the delicious crispy pink lady apples, or aldi’s bargain bag! There’s a nifty programme here that allows you to work out cost in hourly wage- http://lifehacker.com/this-calculator-shows-how-many-hours-of-work-that-big-p-1791816724.

I think I know what I’ll be doing on my Sunday evening now!! Thanks- Gabrielle :-)
