A room-by-room guide full of affordable, practical and inspirational ideas to suit every budget. HOUSEHOLD WISDOM harks back to a thrifty and resourceful not-so-distant past. A time when items were reused rather than discarded, there was less packaging, more composting and a spirit of make-do and mend. A bumper edition of HOW TO BE COMFY and SAVE - two bestselling titles from Shannon Lush and Jennifer Fleming - this book is packed with clever ideas that will help you make your house a home with personality. You will be inspired to hunt through second-hand stores, think twice before throwing something out, save on your bills, make the most of the space you have, and cook nourishing, cost-effective meals. With plenty of Shannon and Jennifer's trademark room-by-room tips for solving stains and repairing things around the house, this a book that no homemaker should be without.
