If you aren't married to a Mr or Ms Fix It, Clean It, etc., etc., then you need to get this book. It will save you lots of time and money many times over. It would also make a great housewarming gift for any new homeowner (or even a renter).

I wish I would have had this book when I first became 100% responsible for my dwelling! This book is practical and tells you how to clean, how to take care of and manage a household. Every teenager heading off to college, or newly married couple should receive this book as a gift into real adulthood!

There are two young women in the family, 21 and 26, both strong minded, independent and unattached. I can't be there for them all the time, and they probably wouldn't ask for help anyway. But this book is the true soup to nuts of living on your own. Common sense and extremely helpful, with good explanations. This should be a required gift for anyone going out on their own.
