Available in a handy flexibind edition, a time-saving stress-busting manual featuring 100 simple, ingenious ways to clear the clutter in your house and your life from the author of Life Hacks and Dad Hacks.
We like our stuff, but sometimes things can get messy. We want a neat, inviting home, but time isn’t always on our side—and the effort can be overwhelming. Now, the master of hacks, Dan Marshall provides tricks, shortcuts, and ideas to help de-clutter and solve everyday annoyances.

"In other words, anything that solves an everyday problem in an inspired, ingenious matter." In Tidy Hacks he shares inventive ways to reuse, recycle, and reclaim your tidy home.
Don’t throw away those breakfast grapefruit halves—add a little salt and use them to clean your oven. Is space tight in the bathroom? Use hanging tiered fruit and vegetable baskets from the shower rod to stow shower toys and shampoo. Are your shoes looking a little dull and scuffed? Rub the pithy side of a banana skin over the scuffed leather.
