Guide To Successful Homemaking
How about some modern housekeeping tips? This behemoth of a book would probably require a staff of hundreds to execute all the suggestions and “rules” contained. I was exhausted just reading some pages of tips. I would imagine that D-Day planning was less complicated. Of course it is outdated for obvious reasons, but I would buy a modern version of this in a heartbeat, if it was all short cuts and didn’t set the bar so high for a “good” home. This book reminds me of a Godey’s Lady’s Book for the “modern” age.
Ladies, I would take special notice of how to wear/buy a hat and bra. (I am now reviewing my own expectations of a bra and wondering if they could help my breasts move back to where they lived in 1978.)
