Born in post-war Hull in the 1950s, and formerly a single working mum to two kids, Nancy is no stranger to frugality. Building on her astonishing 12p laundry detergent and wildly popular recipe, 'Pure Magic', The Green Budget Guide includes more of the inspired, sustainable and budget friendly hacks that have made Nancy so loved by readers and followers on social media, as well as tips and tricks from a lifetime spent learning how to run a household efficiently by saving time and money.

'This is wonderful. The planet and we need more Nancy! This book is so accessible and it reads as she speaks and it does as she does. It's worth its weight in gold and so is Nancy.'
- Gaby Roslin, broadcaster and author of Spread the Joy

< p>'What a wonderful pick and mix of tips and tricks. Nancy has done it again! Since Nancy told me to use cereal packet liners, I haven't bought a single roll of cling film so I am excited to dive into all these hacks and tricks to save even more pennies. The five minute veg stock is RIGHT up my street! The win here is two-fold because it's great for the pocket and the planet so we all win. I keep my other Nancy books in my utility because that is often where I am when I think 'what would Nancy do?' and this one will certainly be joining that collection and undoubtedly become as well-loved as the others.'
- Daisy Upton, Five Minute Mum

'From baking, to gardening, to organization, resourcefulness, and just her incredible energy . . . she creates art out of everything in her life, and takes so much joy in the process.'
- Jonathan Van Ness, Queer Eye
