Hooray for Mary Ellen! I never knew cleaning could be so much fun AND "good enough!" Mary Ellen is a riot. I came away from the book with a ton of great ideas and a smile on my face. A fun read. My grandma swears by Mary Ellen's first book so she bought me "Good Enough Housekeeping" now that Im a homeowner with 3 kids. I'm not kidding, this book has TOTALLY set me free from being a perfectionist and it set me free from VINEGAR! At last a book that doesn't suggest stinky vinegar for everything! Mary Ellen, you are the real deal and your book is far better than "good enough!" you rock!

I was a fan of the show until it disappeared from tv. I was hoping for this book to be helpfull, and I read the other review. I even paid extra for quick shipping. But I was very disapointed in my buy. The book was less of a helpfull guide to cleaning and more of just a book. Sure, it's funny. It's written by Mary Ellen! She's hilarious! But the book is less of a guide; it doesn't have a clear set of examples and rules. I was hoping for something more like a thesarus. Something I could I use to look up what I wanted to know and have my information. This book you have to read it from cover to cover to get any information, and then, you are not guaranteed to find out what you want to know.
