Format: Paperback
I got this book few months back by didn't order it from Amazon. I LOVED IT, I can depend on it to make my small apartment into a nice, cozy perfect place. I don't consider myself as a domestic Goddess but everybody love my place, touches, parties .. etc. The book contains excellent lessons in (De-Cluttering your home, cleaning, removing stains, shopping, entertaining, children and pets) many tips and ideas and love the 4th lesson on cleaning room by room. The only thing I missed in this book is the illustration, would be perfect if they added some photos and illustrations for gift wrapping or sitting a table for example. I'm looking forward the next book (early 2008).

I love this book. I don't understand why its missing pictures, its such a shame because they would help the motivation levels. But otherwise this is my domestic bible, the content is awesome. It has tips on everything from organising and cleaning room by room, to planning a Christmas that all the family will be amazed by.

I love the introduction to this book. According to Anthea it's not about affording things. Its about doing the best with what you have, being proud of your home, and making it comfortable. The cleaning chapter is very "green" if your into that you will like this book. I would recommend this book not to just a housewife but anyone who is trying to get organized male or female. It's a great organization guide.

I bought this book with a few other "perfect housewife" books and I must say it has some amazing tips and tricks for the home. Plus the humor is pretty good as well.
Certainly worth its weight in gold for the cleaning schedules and tricks it has inside.
