SAVE is full of clever ideas to help you get the most from everyday household items. In the process you'll save money, save time and save the planet! These days, once we've finished with something, we tend to throw it away rather than consider if it has another use. In SAVE you'll find out how to turn a lampshade into a wastepaper bin, create a mosaic from broken crockery, and make lip gloss from the last bit of your favourite lipstick. Learn how to revamp your tired-looking couch, how to tenderise meat using paw paw pips, and what to do with old ladders. There are tips on how to get the very last bit out of bottles and the many uses for old corks. Read advice on how to be a smart shopper, and find out how to make a leg of lamb last all week!

SAVE takes you through your house room-by-room with a raft of ideas for finding an uncommon use for things you commonly use. Remove the burden of living on a tight budget. Find out how to spend your time creating rather than consuming. And help the planet in the process.
