Say no to waste, save pots of money and look good while doing it! Here is the best advice for enjoying life inexpensively when necessary, drawn from the collective wisdom of 1950s Britain, with numerous ways to get back to the best things in life: alternatives to retail therapy; suggestions for games, not games consoles; effortless eco-friendliness, and delicious meals from ordinary ingredients. From the post-war, Austerity era of British history comes advice on conservatism covering gardening, fashion, cooking and leisure time.
In 2011, as the 'new era of austerity' kicks in and it feels a bit like the post-war years all over again, The Austerity Book provides a survival guide and a perennial source of solutions for lean times, thanks to our cash-strapped forebears in Austerity Britain.
