Whether it was true or not, the idea prevails that things operated more efficiently in the past. Especially when it came to running a household, it appears that our ancestors at the beginning of the last century knew best. “ Labour Saving Hints and Ideas for the Home” gives you the benefit of that wisdom, handily collected in one book.
Originally published in 1924, it contains over 1,300 tips that were compiled from entries submitted to a competition ran earlier in the decade. Some are amusing, some outdated, but overall most of them do offer sound advice.
It can be picked up from various sellers via Amazon, starting from under £2.
