Very nice book! Although there wasn't many completely new things for me, it did gave ideas and inspiration for living more economically. And it was also quite entertaining, and I got nice www.sites to browse at, too :)

Wow, this book looks interesting. I like this kind of books which give new ideas in many areas in life. Maybe I'll start with the Christmas-part. I think I'm always running late with presents and other preparations. Though, immaterial presents might be a good choise. A couple of meters of water pipe to in laws for example? ;)

I paged through the book reading the parts I was most interested in like skincare and cosmetics (I'd like to know more about the chemicals and natural options) and cleaning without chemicals etc. I agree with Chania that it was entertaining. The writer confessed she had lived quite a posh life and let the hippies "macrame their armpit hair" but then realized that it's not wise to spend money in things that are not necessarily any better options than cheaper ones. I have always been on the bohemian and hippy side more, but I still enjoyed her writing and the tips. I might check some websites too. Thanks Chania, Runojalka and StinaP for sharing this!
