by Billee Sharp, Anneli Rufus
In this D.I.Y. guide to the good life, readers learn how to edit their lives, since in the long run, less is more — pedal now or paddle later! Readers and their families can live more joyfully and far more creatively, all on a dime. The best things in life are free — or very nearly free — and author Billee Sharp shares her freecycling, budget-savvy, barter-better wisdom. Based on a sensible foundation of global responsibility and foresight for the next seven generations, Billee Sharp's philosophy is compelling. From the radical common sense introduction to the practical how-tos and yummy recipes, Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It is a step-by-step handbook to revolutionizing spending habits and reclaiming quality of life in the process. Learn how to start a community garden and to seed share, ditch the grass and raise organic veggies in the front lawn, eco-clean the house with lemons and lavender cure minor maladies from the kitchen cabinet, organize a trade-for-what-you-want free flea market, and cook meals for pennies.
