The Best of Martha Stewart Living: Organizing
This glossy, instructional guide offers the homemaker over 200 excellent ideas on keeping their home neat, tidy, and well organized.
This "Best of" bookazine covers nearly every space in the house; entryways, kitchens, bedrooms, closets, bathrooms, kid's rooms, utility rooms, and home office. Each section features some of the best ideas from past issues of Martha Stewart Living magazine, and helpful how-to for some of the organizing projects.
As an added bonus, each section contains "get the look" hints, with product recommendations to recreate the organizing tip in your own home. While many of the "get the look" suggestions feature Martha Stewart products - it also suggests numerous other product recommendations. (The Container Store seems to be a favorite place!) It's an excellent resource for readers. Each section ends with several "good things" as well, with simple, 'why didn't I think of that?' hints to make organizing easier.
I have read and re-read this bookazine time and time again. There is so much inspiration within the pages, it's hard to put it down!
While some may squawk at the 9.95 cover price, I think these "very best of.." bookazines are a steal and so valuable. I hope Martha Stewart Living will keep them coming! I'd love to see one on gardening this spring!
