The Austerity Book: For Enjoying Life Inexpensively


    In the cold dark months of January and February when all of our hard earned savings have gone on the children's Christmas presents and the mad rush of the sales, things can look pretty grim. But, sixty years ago, in post-war ration-era Britain, things were much worse. And we survived! A spirit of make-do flowered and prospered. That attitude to austerity was never more important and pertinent as it is in today's financial situation. As 2011 begins why not let The Austerity Book help you to make the most of what you have: play home-made games instead of shelling out on games consoles, learn how to supplement your weekly food shop with veggies grown in your garden, and get the best tips on how to fill your leisure time cheaply. With effortless eco-friendliness, this survival guide will provide a perennial source of solutions for lean times.
