This book contains over 1700 helpful household hints on ways to use those common household products found in every home. Many of the hints are for unconventional uses not often even considered. The authors believe that this book is destined to become indispensable around the home, much the same as the Webster Dictionary or a first aid manual.

This book has been a long time in the making and is way beyond necessary. It is the kind of tool that really needs to be prominently displayed in every home. It contains over 1700 helpful hints, each discussing unconventional uses for the many products found in nearly every home.  Anyone of these tips might be the one that really makes someone’s day, or might be the one that saves them enough time, trouble, or money to make the purchase of the book a fantastic investment.  The book is also available on Kindle.

The most important portion of any HINTS BOOK is the index. You have to be able to find the exact hint you’re looking for, at the precise time you need it.  The index in this almanac is the most comprehensive of any book of this type we have been able to locate, often displaying a single hint under several topics. 
 
The book offers numerous uses for common household products in uncommon ways. It has been prepared in a manner which should allow all of those little helpful hints you have been saving (and hopefully many that you are hearing about for the very first time) to be found in one location, within easy reach and easy to find when needed.

Reader Reviews for "The Hints Book Almanac"

Reviewed by Patrick Granfors 12/9/2011
Is it cross referenced with a problem? For example, page 285. One use for this particular product is recharging a dead auto battery, which may or may not be listed in your publication. Asking the problem in reverse, I have a dead battery what shall I do? Oh, see page 285. Just curious. pg
Reviewed by Richard King 12/9/2011
My sweetie and I had been saving “helpful hints” for years, each of us totally unaware that the other had been doing the same thing, until it came up in conversation. It was apparent that we each had the same concern, “How do you find the one you’re looking for, when you really need it?” That led to our decision to merge our “hints” files together and subsequently, to organizing them into a more functional format. During that process research continued in an effort to accumulate the most complete listing available anywhere. Then we decided that if locating a needed hint had been a problem for us, it likely was a concern for many others as well. With that realization, the idea for this book was born and the quest to creat a comprehensive index was begun. We believe the book will become a most treasured reference manual in a very large percentage of American homes.
