Bit embarassing but is the Anthea Turner book any good for helping get organised?

My house looks like a permanent bomb site, full of toys/clutter etc....
Saw a couple of her shows on TV and thought she had good ideas re storage etc.
Anyone have the book and think its worth getting?

I'll sum up whatever the book says for free and in about 10 seconds.

A place for everything and everything in its place.

If you don't need it get rid of it

Is that pre or post reading the Anthea Domestic Goddess bible?!

Pre. I've never read it or seen it.

Pannacotta yes there are a few good ideas in there. I got it for the homemade old fashioned cleaning recipes, wanted to stop buying nasty chemicals and go green.

Was thinking the same quokka as lots of ezcma in my family so try to avoid strong chemicals etc. Do the recipes work?

they do but its not as quick as say cillit bang (spelling?) and you need a bit of elbow grease. I just got fed up spending so much money on various different things. You can get borax from boots, you need that for her grease buster. I would give you some of the recipes but my copy is on a container somewhere in some ocean on its way to s'pore. Should invest in some ecloths as well - they are fab and washable
