Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A forceful antidote to the cheapening of thrift culture: a meticulously hand-lettered, pint-size volume. When you raise your fist against the values that derailed our economy, lift this book in it.” —Utne Reader

“There are about 100 levels of cool here. As someone who makes her own deodorant and underwear, I feel an urge to stalk this woman.” —Amy Karol, Angry Chicken

“Conversational and witty...Briggs is never condescending and instead inspires the reader to
better his or her life with simple tutorials.” —Natural Home Magazine

“A helpful journal written by a friendly and knowledgeable woman...An infinitely interesting read that could be beneficial to the reader, and, on a somewhat larger scale, the planet." —Razorcake
