Book review: "Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It" by Billee Sharp

A friend of ours recently wrote an excellent little book about how to cut corners in style when the economy takes a nosedive into the compost heap. Talk about timely! It's called "Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It"  and the author Billee Sharp even gave us a mention on page 154!

The book contains loads of information on composting, as well as growing your own foods and herbs that can be used for skincare and cleaning the house.

There are sections on not only gardening, but also cooking, cleaning, decorating, beauty, health, recycling, money and all sorts of other tidbits that can really make a difference in everyday life for you and your family.

I recommend this book. It's thoughtfully written and you won't end up feeling like a penny-pinching miser in some hippie gulag, but rather an environmentally aware superstar who coincidentally has a very clean home, better skin, and the information a person needs to revive their cellphone if it takes an accidental swim.

Tip o'the trowel to Billee!
