Review

India Knight shows you how to say no to waste, save pots of money and look good while you are doing it (Sunday Times)

A joyous read, The Thrift Book might be the only surefire investment out there (Harper's Bazaar)

A blueprint for living well, however broke you are, with thrifty tips on looking fab, cooking, pampering and partying (Cosmopolitan)

A triumphant treat and a useful and sensible manual (Independent)

Brims with tips on how to live well on little cash (The London Paper)

Endearing and informative (Fay Weldon Observer)

Belt tightening at its most fun (Closer)

From the Author

Thrift is a book for anyone who's ever been a disaster with money and who'd quite like that to stop. It's for anyone who feels the need to tighten their belt and hunker down until the storm is over, but doesn't want to stop having fun or living graciously. It isn't a book called How To Be Tight, so anyone interested in gathering up all their elastic bands to turn into a marvellous rubber ball for the children's Christmas present might do better elsewhere. Nor is it a book called How To Be A New Puritan - my tips for having cheapo fun don't involve wearing a hair shirt and lying with your face turned to the wall, contemplating the sinfulness of shopping. Thrift is a book about all sorts of small (and some big) ways of saving money without feeling like your life's gone down the dumper, with precise advice (websites and so on) and recommendations. If you liked The Shops, I think you'll like this one: we're talking saving rather than spending, but the ethos is the same - it's about finding joy in small things, except this time around the small things are likely to be home-made or extraordinarily cheap.
