Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Waggoner (Classic Household Hints: Over 500 Old and New Tips for a Happier Home) has compiled more of a guide to simplifying household chores than a decorating book. Advice is given on controlling clutter, cleaning house, doing laundry, cooking and baking, gardening, and using "green" ideas in the home.

    An OK book, but I've read better ones, and ones that covered more categories.
