New book: The Martha Manual

Fans of Martha Stewart might want to check out her new book. Found it at Costco this week. It has EVERYTHING -- and I'm not kidding.

 

Here's just a few of the topics: give a toast, maximize closet space, build a fire, remove any stain, replace a doorknob, train your pet, etc.

 

Great reference book for the home.

Interesting. I want to take a look. This sounds like it might be worth having.

I think you'll really enjoy it. It was just published (1/1/19), so it's brand new.

 

I've been thumbing through it, and I'm amazed at the content: everything from how to maintain gutters, how to handwash woolens, and how to arrange pictures.

I wonder how similar it is to the Martha Stewart Homekeeping Handbook—if there's any chance anyone has seen both, I'd love to hear a review. The Handbook (published in 2014) has proven to be a very handy and valuable resource.

I'll be looking for it. Reference books are one thing I keep on my bookcase.

I'll hanks but I'll pass.  After 37 years of keeping home, I got it.  I don't need a book.

My Costco didn't have it but I'll keep watching for it.

Seriously? You are so knowledgeable that this book has nothing to offer you. You must be pretty amazing--oh yeah, you have a housekeeper and send your laundry out. Guess maybe you "don't got it".
