Spend and save!!!

Lazy double post or bumper two-for-the-price-of-one post, depending on your outlook.

April's eye on dublin was a comic cover homage which tried to flip things on its head and present the worst of the celtic tiger over spenders as the potential heroes of the recession. Afterall, when you think about it, it's not the poor, scrounging working class mother of nine that's going to kick start the economy but the coked up ditzy PR girl willing to spend hundreds on a haircut.

May's eye on dublin was once again money centric, this time with those who have become obsessed with saving it. Its oh so hip to go to flea markets, car boot sales and charity shops but staying at home and eating toast is actually probably going to cost less. A pretty teapot for only 5 euro is not a bargain if you already own 14 teapots and this one is made out of paper.
