Overview

Housekeeping Made Easy by Christine Terhune Herrick

From the PREFACE.

THE title "Housekeeping Made Easy" may at first sight seem to claim a great deal. The minute directions the writer has striven to give for the various branches of housework may further deepen the impression that "Housekeeping Done Thoroughly" might have better described the scope of the book.

The thoughtful housewife will comprehend, however, that what is well done is twice done, and that carelessly performed duties in any department of domestic management almost inevitably entail double toil and trouble. Granting this, it follows naturally that the best way to save work is to do it so well that there need be no going back to pick up dropped stitches.

Regarded from this standpoint, the claim this little volume puts forth on its title-page may possibly not prove a misnomer. The chapters that make up the book appeared first in Harper's Bazar, and were written in the light gained by the author's own stumblings and uprisings. It is her earnest hope that her experience lessons may guide other young housekeepers past some of the pitfalls she herself did not escape
