Practical Housekeeping 1877

It is becoming fashionable in these pinching times to economize and housekeepers are finding it a pleasant pastime to search out and stop wastes in household expenses and to exercise the thousand little economies which thoughtful and careful women understand so readily and practice with such grace. Somebody has said that a well to do French family would live on what an American household in the same condition of life wastes, and this may not be a great exaggeration.

  1. Having lived on the French boarder for 3 years and still regularly traveling to France I can say that the statement is true.
    Actually most Europeans in general are not wasteful and quite inventive with "scraps" of any nature. :)

    Have a lovely winter wonderful weekend.


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
