Editing Your Life

Amos Lassen

I love, love, love this book--it has so many useful hints and great advice that you just have to get a copy. (Not to mention the recipes--my mouth was watering as I read some of them). Here is a way to live a good life and enjoy yourself while doing so. Billee Sharp shares what she knows here and what she knows is based on her sensible look at global responsibility. She feels that we should understand that we must change the way we live and save the planet. She gives us a step-by-step handbook to change our spending habits and regain a quality of life that we deserve.
I love the hints for house cleaning with lemon and lavender. Your house gets clean and smells divine. She gives us ways to take care of minor health issues by using the kitchen cabinet. We learn how to start a garden with our community and hoe to raise organic vegetables as well as how to fix almost anything. Where has this book been? Why have I not heard of some of this before? Everything piece of advice is useful. This is one book that I expect will be filled with bookmarks, post-it notes, dog-eared pages and doodles. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

About this book

Wiki

"Billee Sharp has written down the bones for a "Whole Life Catalog. " Her work brings a new spiritual dimension to the art of living. A must-read for all humans."

Mickey Hart

"My copy of Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It is filled of highlights, post-its, and dog-ears marking the cool things I want to do. Even a life-long cheapskate like me learned a lot of ways to live fabulously frugal!"

Lara Starr, co-author of The Frugal Foodie Cookbook

Much more than a how-to guide, Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It is a manifesto for living rich while being kind to your pocketbook and planet."

--Nina Lesowitz, co-author of Living Life as a Thank You and The Party Girl Cookbook
