Love it. A perfect collection of useful ways to get the most out of stuff and reduce overall consumption. While I had the good fortune to grow up with a 'depression-era' father who taught me many of the tidbits shared in this book, I think that many people don't have much of this basic info. This book would make a perfect gift for anyone heading out on their own for the first time! An essential for your bookshelf. Support indie artists and publishers and buy this book- you won't regret it.
