Book a Day Giveaway: Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It


For the next five weekdays, we're giving away copies of Billee Sharp's "Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It: The DIY Guide to the Good Life."

In this book the author takes an alternative approach to saving money by using DIY techniques to solve household problems. Sharp provides tips and tricks to help you reuse and recycle rather than buying new -- saving you money, reducing waste & environmental impact all at the same time.

The "Homely Habits" chapter outlines eco-friendly substitutes for cleaning, building & maintaining your household. Many of her cleaning concoctions use products like baking soda & vinegar that are typically found around the kitchen, and are much safer with kids than the toxic stuff you find under sinks.

Along with using what you've already got for multiple purposes, Sharp urges readers to start a garden to reduce their food budget and keep themselves healthy. Don't let a lack of yardspace deter you, Sharp says there's always indoor gardening, community gardens & guerrilla gardening.

This book is filled with countless do-it-yourself projects that can save you money and reduce your environmental footprint. Tweet the following message on Twitter and you could win a free copy:
