Using Martha's Common Sense
on June 7, 2001
If I had never used even one of the suggestions/ideas in this book, it is beautiful to look at and wonderfully organized.
Even the unrealistic (for me) ideas let me fantasize....not a bad thing!
Martha Stewart's staff has compiled organizational ideas for every room of the house (and even rooms that most of us do not have). Many of the ideas are just common sense, but things I would not have thought of on my own. I had quite a few "ah-ha" moments while reading this book.
I have used several of the ideas: for the broom closet, the office, the garage, and for folding those darn fitted sheets that always end up in a ball, it seems.
I loved the picture wall, the fold-out windowsill, the armoire converted into an office, the herb "pantry", and the spice drawers.
Now if Martha would just send someone over to make all these things for me!
