Abstract:

Just a few years ago, the idea of keeping a house sounded quaint, like something out of a 1950s sitcom, complete with an apron and a newfangled washing machine. But as a new generation of canners, composters, homebrewers, and knitters all over the country can attest, frugal, do-it-yourself living is back in fashion. In this guidebook for living a homemade life, the authors take back home ec and restore it to its original, noble form, in which the household is a self-sustaining engine of production at the center of your life. It provides the tools that are needed for this radical shift in home economics. The projects range from the simple to the ambitious and are divided into five categories, based on the amount of time they take: day to day, weekly, monthly, season to season, and big projects you'll only need to do once.
