This book is very interesting and offers unusual uses for things that I already have on hand.
Mary Mcgill
I found this book at the library and there was so much useful advice I had to buy a copy of my own.

It is well organized, alphabetically, and outlines the many uses for everyday household things.

This is one of the best books I own, hands down! I work at a Library and have an extensive home library but this book gets used more often than anything else. It is well organized, alphabetically, and outlines the many uses for everyday household things. For instance, there is a whole section on what you can do with Vinegar, a whole section on pepper, and so forth. Did you know that if you put pepper on a fresh cut, it will stop the bleeding immediately? If you become the proud owner of this book, you will. And you will know many more useful facts that you can share - you and your friends will be amazed :)

I've purchased many, many books of this type, but this is the newest and best by far. I thought I had read most of the hints and tips published, but I found a whole new collection in this book. The layout and sections are easy to read, and you can find what you are looking for quickly. Well worth the money!

Great book. Actually, I wasn't even looking for a book of this kind but came across it by chance. This book has so many useful ideas..... Is it not even about saving money, more about ideas to solve everyday problems and being able to do it without having to use harmful chemicals. I would advise it to everybody. The only thing I didn't like is the quality of the cover. I am just finishing reading it and the cover is already looking rather worn out. Just imagine after I have looked into it a lot of times looking for more solutions? It will probably desintegrate. Other than that.... if you have a house, a garden, kids, a garage, do DIY, cook, have health problems, want some beauty tips or anything else you are sure to find solutions in here! Well worth the money, I would say...... I wonder whether it's siter book "Extraordinary uses for ordinary things" brings a bit the same tips or completely different ones because in that case I might just buy that one too. The title of this one is More...... so it might mean that the other one has completely different ideas but you never know, I might just end up with two books that are more or less the same. If someone has the answer maybe they would like to pass it on to me...... The other one is two years older.

This book is really quite useless. The suggestions are often comical. For example, how many people would use vodka in place of windshield wiper fluid? Many of the solutions are significantly more costly and inconvenient. I have a couple of other books like this (e.g. dummy's guides) that have much more valuable information.

I purchased it for a neighbor of mine who is quite satisfied to have it.
A resource such as this is absolutely mandatory.

This books is excellent! That's why I ordered two copies to give to my daughters for Christmas. It's also entertaining to read how simple household problems can be solved. Great book!
