Unbored: The Essential Field Guide To Serious Fun by Elizabeth Foy Larsen, Joshua Glenn, Tony Leone, and Heather Kasunick is a wonderful book on how to do great things in the home in order to have fun and yet save lots of money.

The authors encourage people to build things rather than consume. They give as examples home improvement projects like building sheds, shelters, and other property enhancements to occupy time and increase the property value.

The book provides plenty of examples of how to clean up a home by culling excess clothing, filing papers, and utilizing bins for storage purposes. In addition, the authors address developing hobbies like reading, playing games, indoor sports, and utilizing tech free rooms to utilize for things like arts and crafts.

The idea of having a tech free room is a good alternative to just watching hours of television or playing video games. A playroom can be used for a home gym, partying area, movie-making, school science projects, or a general conference room.

The authors address home-made cooking such as the preparation of vegetable burgers, burritos, and juicing fruits to save money and provide better nutrition. In addition, the book describes affordable ways to decorate clothing with pins, insignias, patches, and attractive stitching.

The book describes ways to make herbal preparations like crushed garlic and onions for colds. In addition, turmeric may be utilized for scrapes and small wounds.

Unbored is an important resource for finding constructive ways to occupy time in the home while saving lots of money and having fun at the same time.
