The Thrift Book Live Well and Spend Less A great book about living on less Even better is that my Wardrobe Refashion website is mentioned in there The book is easy and fun to read and I'm sure it will be interesting for any money saving newbiesWhile a lot of specific information prices and suggested websites are outdated for example some prices have doubled or tripled since the year the book was published the only reason for its three star it still gives a really good insight on how to manage a lot of aspects of your life and it gives ideas to test out or information to research homemade cleaners some of which I used myself as a kid I already use a lot of the suggestions but it definitely inspired me to try out a few ideas as they say need is creativity's driver Re read this book still some great ideas but slightly dated now I enjoyed this book there was a bit of humour in it along with the tips I would say a lot of the tips I already use but for anyone new to saving money and budgeting it just about covers everything I would have given it four stars but the author is very preachy in places and given that she is privileged as she points out she could have considered some peoples choices are out of necessity For example buying clothes for their kids at Primark may be for some people the best they can afford Hints and tips and occasional rants around the general theme of thrift I feel it would be useful to someone who has been in the habit of spending a great deal and wishes to do less of that rather than to anyone who hasn't had much to spend in the first place It also assumes a specific lifestyle where time isn't an issue and shops are accessible I think Jack Monroe is probably useful I ended up skimming a lot of this as the author's attitude was uite irritating Another review mentioned that she was preachy and I agree I thought I'd learn some new tips but alas there were only directions to websites that I could visit to learn interspersed with personal anecdotes that were not especially interesting Also call me old fashioned but I was tired of the word crap being used to describe so many different items or situations Maybe the author could invest in a thesaurus with her savings before her next book is written The Thrift Book is a guide to how to live well while spending less by bestselling writer India KnightFeeling poor because of the credit crunch Feeling guilty because of global warming Feeling like you'd like to tighten your belt but aren't ready to embrace DIY macramé handbagsNo need to panic Put down the economy mince and buy this book instead it's a blueprint for living beautifully while saving money and easing your conscience India Knight will show you How to make wonderful dinners with every little money How to dress on a budget and still look fabulous How to make friends and start sharing with your neighbours How to holiday imaginatively with barely a carbon footprintTry it you have nothing to lose but your overdraft'A blueprint for living well however broke you are with thrifty tips on looking fab cooking pampering and partying' Cosmopolitan'The Thrift Book might be the only sure fire investment out there' Harper's Bazaar'A triumphant treat and a useful and sensible manual' IndependentIndia Knight is the author of four novels My Life on a Plate Don't You Want Me Comfort and Joy and Mutton Her non fiction books include The Shops the bestselling diet book Neris and India's Idiot Proof Diet the accompanying bestselling cookbook Neris and India's Idiot Proof Diet Cookbook and The Thrift Book India is a columnist for the Sunday Times and lives in London with her three childrenFollow India on Twitter indiaknight or on her blog at Great ideasA little out of date now but some brilliant recipes and general ideas to live very well and save lots One time read I LOVE India Knight She is such fun to read so personable and so present on every page It is ten years old now this book and yet seems so absolutely prescient
