Editorial Reviews

"It's a solid guide to the virtues of non-consumerism, yet - big relief - doesn't come across as preachy or reeking of environmental goody-goodyism." - Toronto Star"Thrifty is an entertaining read, thanks to the author's witty style and practical anecdotes." - Calgary Herald"Weaving concrete advice from her own life with stories and ideas from many of her frugal friends - including Margaret Atwood who encouraged Harris to write this book - Thrifty offers encouraging, entertaining and eclectic ways to live a frugal life with style." - rabble"Harris reminds us that the word thrifty is derived from the word thrive. If we do it right, she promises, living thriftily will make us feel good - not deprived." - Montreal Gazette
