What People are Saying About This

Marisa McLellan

The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking will release your hidden domestic talents. Kate’s friendly voice will transform even the most clueless guy or gal into a homemaking marvel. Loaded with smart, frugal, and pragmatic tips, it is the ideal home-life manual for the modern age.

Zora O'Neill

Living comfortably in your home is endlessly rewarding, and all it takes is attention and creativity. I’m so convinced that I’m taking Kate’s advice on bread baking this very week!

Eugenia Bone

“My daughter is moving into her first apartment next year. Along with boxes of second hand linens and furniture from the attic, she’s getting this fresh, modern, and enthusiastic primer on all things housekeeping.”

Kim Barnouin

I am a huge fan of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking! Kate nailed it in this humorous, creative guide for fabulous, chic, and easy-on-the-wallet ideas. It’s a joy to read a book that makes you laugh and get great ideas from—another must have for my girlfriends

Sally Schneider

The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking is a wonderfully insightful, encouraging, non-perfectionist guide for creating a pleasurable home without killing yourself (or the planet). It’s full of information your mother forgot to tell you, that will help you live well and sustainably, and have fun in the process.

Ashley English

This should be required reading for anyone with a roof over their heads. You’ll find yourself returning to it again and again, whether you’re looking for party ideas or which side of the place setting the napkin goes on.
