Sharing Solution

Emily Doskow gave, what she called, a prehistoric powerpoint presentation at Broadway Books in Portland, Oregon
When we were young, Mom and Dad tried to teach us to share. With nine kids in the family, sharing wasn't even an option it was a requirement.

I shared a room with two of my sisters my entire single life--well, until Brook got married and moved out. Plus, with nine kids, we only had one bathroom - that's unheard of today.

So sharing isn't a new idea - it's old school. But sometimes we need to look back to move forward. The Sharing Solution is a great book to give you some hints, tips and tricks on how to save money and share at the same time.

If you'd like to get some ideas on how to do some community sharing and create a sustainable environment, stop by Broadway Books at 1714 NE Broadway in Portland, Oregon and pick up a signed copy of The Sharing Solution.

That sounds like an interesting book!
I like her "prehistoric presentation". That is probably the route I'd take too, I've never done a powerpoint presentation!

I thought I had a big family! And only one bathroom, too! Sharing becomes part of your DNA!
