Look ‘Inside’ The Book of Rubbish Ideas!

Read there, buy here!
Read it there, (buy it here)...!

Ooh!

I nipped on Amazon this morning (as you do) and The Book of Rubbish Ideas popped up (as it does) and there’s a new ‘sneaky peek inside the book’ thingie widget to play with…!

(How sad – so easily pleased…)

Anyway, I thought perhaps new readers to the blog might like to have a good sniff through some of my rubbish ideas.

Click here to read them and if you feel a burning urge to purchase, come back and do it direct with the publishers by clicking on the book icon on the right.

I believe they’re still offering the best deal at £4.54 or £3.50 for Sawday’s Travel Club members – RRP £6.99.

Thanks to you all for your continued support of my work and the book and feel free to Tweet it up!

Rubbishly yours,

How To: Organise Christmas Clothes Swap Party

Need a new LBD but money’s too tight to mention?

Then take my rubbish advice and squeeze in a quick Clothes Swap Party!

I was chatting to a batty friend over the weekend who informed me that her office Christmas do was coming up and that she had ‘absolutely nothing to wear sweetie!’

Now her definition nothing to wear translates into the reality of having a wardrobe bulging with slinky numbers, but they’ve seen the light of day twice in the last year and if she wore them again her social standing would clearly suffer irrepairable damage.

I suggested she get in touch with a mutual chum of ours who was facing a similar dilemma.

Hi everybody

I thought I’d use today’s post to formally announce the release of The Book of Rubbish Ideas. It will start hitting the shelves today and you should start to hear more about it in the press. You can also now purchase it online here

Thank you to everybody for showing so much support, both on and off the blog, and as a small way of showing our appreciation I have posted another set of sample pages for you to look at. I’ve selected the brilliant chapter on things to do in the Study to reduce electric, paper and other household rubbish.

Cheers

Hi everybody

Tracey is understandably still not quite up to resuming her wonderful work here just yet so to I thought I’d leave you with another set of sample pages from the book (which is now less than a month away from being published!) I’ve uploaded the chapter on the Kitchen, which is a great example of how Tracey approaches each room in the house to completely de-clutter it and provide stacks of hints and ideas on how you can reuse, recycle and reduce. Many of the things Tracey mentions elaborate on some her posts on this blog about food rubbish, plastic rubbish and household rubbish.

Plenty to read over the weekend – enjoy!

Hi everybody

While Tracey is taking a much deserved breather after her visit to the hospital yesterday, I thought I’d post some samples pages from The Book of Rubbish Ideas. I’ve selected the Introduction as it gives a great overview of what the book will be all about:

PS Tracey is fine by the way but just needs a day off to recover. She’s aiming to be back online by tomorrow so we’ll hear from her then.
