501 Timesaving Tips: a Book Review

In today's fast-paced world, who doesn't need to know how to save time? This book is jam-packed with ideas covering almost any aspect of everyday life, all categorized for ease of reference. And don't let the word "Woman" in the title turn others off, as they can certainly benefit from this book as well. That's probably my only complaint about this book: the title should have said "Everyone," "Every Person" or "Every Household" - because it's not just women that need these hints. 
For example, did you know that petroleum jelly will deter ants? Or that you can use old toilet paper rolls to keep your rolls of wrapping paper from unrolling? How about removing pet fur from upholstery and carpet with a squeegee or a fabric softening sheet? With a long-haired white cat in my household, that's certainly a tip I can put to use.
My only regret about this book is that I got an advance copy for review from Net Galley and it's on my Kindle, so I can't flip through the book as readily as I could with an actual book.
