A realistic alternative: 365 easy ways to save money for real people who are too busy to go out of their way to do it. Sure, you could save piles of money if you were willing to empty and reuse vacuum cleaner bags, grind your own flour, or scrounge through the neighbor's garbage. Such things have been suggested elsewhere. But Darcie Sanders and Martha Bullen know that money-saying suggestions are only as good as the likelihood of someone actually using them, and that's why they devised a year's worth of ways to economize without changing your way of life? Make your own beauty potions, discover tofu, deal firmly with car dealers, change your car's oil yourself (it's easy!), plant perennials and self-sowing annuals, insulate with ivy, install an attic fan, know when to shop, say good-bye to annual fees on credit cards, and use hair conditioner made for horses (what the hay, it's cheap and it works great). After all, it's not what you make that counts, it's what you keep...and Darcie Sanders and Martha Bullen give you 365 ways to keep more of it than you ever thought possible.Sanders, Darcie is the author of 'Never Throw out a Banana Again: And 364 Other Ways to Save Money at Home without Knocking Yourself Out - Darcie Sanders - Paperback - 1st ed' with ISBN 9780517882337 and ISBN 0517882337.
