EBOOK FREE (The Thrift Book Live Well and Spend Less) ô India Knight
F I had wanted to surf the net for information on thrift I d have done so and not borrowed this book from the Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice library I enjoyed this book there was a bit of humour in it along with the tips I would say aot 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 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 En plein coeur less of that rather than to anyone who hasn t had much to spend in the first place It also assumes a specificifestyle where time isn t an issue and shops are accessible I think Jack Monroe is probably useful I LOVE India Knight She is such fun to read so personable and so present on

Started to annoy me and so I started skimming It s uite middle class The author is clearly from a privileged back ground and talks about buying clothes from expensive shops because they ast onger and are ethical Yes I
Agree With The Author On These Points with the author on these points not everyone can afford to buy from designer shops even knowing that it s worth it in the ong run maybe and especially as this book is about thrift seems counter intuitive She also mentions several highstreet stores which do not use child abour Again I commend the author for highlighting this to readers although she only does the bare minimum Three of the stores mentioned were Marks Spencers HM and Gap Now these stores may not use child abour at east not at the time the book was published but Marks Sparks have all their underwear made in Israel and both HM and Gap both use Sweat Shops even though they don t have children working in themThe author also did uite a bit of hippy bashing at times although she did ater say that the hippies were right though about many things This is out of order in my opinionAnother thing I found annoying was that the author mentioned something that would help you save money ie making yogurt or sewing your own clothes but *Didn T Go In * t go in much detail about them but instead recommended a book which would be uite expensive this book is about thrift not about having to buy books I already have a book habit as it is And if it weren t for book recs it was endless inks to websites Inners with every ittle money How to dress on a budget and still ook 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 ose but your overdraft'A blueprint for iving well however broke you are with thrifty tips on ooking 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
