But this book, Don't Throw It Out by Lori Baird, is more than a catchy title and I highly recommend it for everyone's bookshelf as there truly is something in it for everyone. Whether you are often making home repairs, sick of buying new stuff to replace old stuff that had a way too short usable life or someone who delights in finding another use for trash, this book has it all.
I am actually finding the book quite empowering, it gives me the know how to make small repairs that I wouldn't have otherwise made. And, yes, I said finding. It's not the kind of book that you sit down and read chapter to chapter. More likely you'll work your way through this book topic by topic and continue to use it as a reference for years to come.
