life after housework

A Housework Revolution

Is there life after housework?
A revolutionary approach that will free you from the drudgery of housework
Aslett
1981

I don’t think one can “improve” housework to the extent it can make the drudgery disappear. Taking a task and making it more efficient is a good idea and I am onboard with the concept. As a house cleaning slacker, I am usually disorganized and easily distracted. I just don’t think I can go through the house and get everything done. I think this book assumes you can get organized and not be distracted by other stuff or people.

Be a SUPERWOMAN!

Superwoman
Conran
1979

This is a lighthearted housekeeping manual that has advice about saving money, fixing things around the house, and other household tips. There really isn’t any discussion on division of labor. It’s more about doing the same chores more efficiently. Evidently, all that extra time saved will allow you to pick up YET MORE WORK as an entrepreneur. My feeling is the author is the very definition of the superwoman.
