Review quote

"A forceful antidote to the cheapening of thrift culture: a meticulously hand-lettered, pint-size volume. When you raise your fist against the values that derailed our economy, lift this book in it." --Utne Reader "There are about 100 levels of cool here. As someone who makes her own deodorant and underwear, I feel an urge to stalk this woman." --Amy Karol, Angry Chicken "Conversational and witty...Briggs is never condescending and instead inspires the reader to
better his or her life with simple tutorials." --Natural Home Magazine "A helpful journal written by a friendly and knowledgeable woman...An infinitely interesting read that could be beneficial to the reader, and, on a somewhat larger scale, the planet." --Razorcake
