Recommends it for: people who enjoy the "good things" section/special issues of Martha Stewart
Shelves: home
While I used to be an avid reader of Martha Stewart books and magazines, over a decade it was eventually depressing how little of it was relevant to my life in run-of-the-mill apartments.

A big purge later, this book is one of two Omnimedia things that have survived on my bookshelf. It is a collection of "good things" divided into three areas: Kitchen, Home and Garden

Kitchen (p.8-47)
There are very few hints in here that I haven't used. Two rubber bands make quick work of opening a stubborn jar.
Martha Stewart and her crew have done it again with a book that makes life seem like it could be a tidy and calm place. (I think we all know that's not entirely the case...) So many wonderful, why-didn't-I-think-of-that things to do around the house and garden that you want to drop everything and start organizing, cooking, sorting, sewing and taking out every stain from every linen you own!! (And maybe do the same at your neighbor's house.) If something can inspire me to clean it's well worth th ...more

A fast read. Several things I was excited to see I have already been doing. And quite a few of new ideas to try. Cooking tips and storage tips. It also gave a list of basic tools to have for the home and the garden. They seem very cost effective and do not require a lot on my end, which is good for my life!

Okay, so a couple of the solutions are semi-ridiculous (like the "use an expanding file to sort your sandpaper by grit" one) but nearly all of them will have you going "huh" out loud because you never thought of that but it seems so obvious now that you see it.

Yikes... Martha Stewart. However, such great ideas that I bought a used copy through Amazon to have as reference.

This one was too much for me right now. Martha does lots of great stuff but sometimes, it's just too much, too perfect!

Another one that's great as a reference, less useful as everyday reading.
