My copy was published in 1988, and at that time it was probably a decent update to household hints books from 20+ years earlier. Funny to read now, as the entire section on getting organized revolves around making lists and keeping stuff on paper calendars and date books, all which have been replaced in the past 30 years with electronic devices.

My favorite tip from this book is this; Expecting company for dinner and not enough time to clean house? That's cool - just turn down the lights and put

You may laugh, but this is a very good reference for those that are not naturally handy around the house (or apartment). It includes tips and tidbits on subjects like common household insects, cleaning everything, organizing, and applying makeup. The little illustrations are hokey but it is very informative. Really.
Not an exciting read but good tips on organization with general info on how to fix and make basic home repairs.

Hints on how to do most anything around the house from organization, home repair, use of tools, to first aid and much more.

This book was published in 1988 and most of it is still relevant.
