Love, love, LOVE this book! It's written with a lot of humour! It's definitely a great book for anyone who is looking at simplifying their lives. Teaches you to make your own cleaners from scratch, mend your holes, fold that bothersome fitted sheet and SO much more. This site's description doesn't do it justice. Highly recommend it - it's a handy reference, for sure!
