The essential guide to becoming a producer instead of a consumer, with projects designed to transform the home
Spending money is the last thing anyone wants to do right now. We are in the midst of a massive cultural shift away from consumerism and toward a vibrant and very active countermovement that has been thriving on the outskirts for quite some time—do-it-yourselfers who make frugal, homemade living hip are challenging the notion that true wealth has anything to do with money. In Making It, Coyne and Knutzen, who are at the forefront of this movement, provide readers with all the tools they need for this radical shift in home economics.
The projects range from simple to ambitious and include activities done in the home, in the garden, and out in the streets. With step-by-step instructions for a wide range of projects—from growing food in an apartment, to building a ninety-nine-cent solar oven, to creating safe, effective laundry soap for pennies a gallon, to fishing in urban waterways—Making It will be the go-to source for post-consumer living activities that are fun, inexpensive, and eminently doable. Within hours of buying this book you''ll be able to start transitioning into a creative, sustainable mode of living that is not just a temporary fad, but a cultural revolution.
