If you read Practical Suggestions for Mother and Housewife as a light-hearted book, you're sure to enjoy many of the ideas. However, if you are a moderate feminist, you will probably want to throw this across the room. Just remember this was a different time and the general mindset. There are ideas on Marriage, Mothering, Interior Décor, and Food Preparation.
This small but essential book for any woman trying to run a household. Granted, we don't have to trim the wicks on kerosene lamps very often anymore. Likewise, few houses have basements or use coal for heat. But the values this book teaches--healthy diets for children, proper discipline and good habits, choosing quality furniture, and much more--are always helpful. In addition, there are ideas on Marriage, Mothering, Interior Décor, and Food Preparation.
Practical Suggestions for Mother and Housewife is an excellent addition to your vintage homemaking collection or home library.

When your shopping for a new novel, most readers don't imagine that you can do it in a eco-friendly way. In every area of your life you can live a sustainable lifestyle even while shopping for new to you vintage books!
Sustainable living is accomplished by making choices that reduce our environmental impact by making fundamental changes to counteract climate change and decrease ecological destruction.
Buying vintage anything is essential because recycling and reusing items means fewer polluting resources are being used to make brand new books, kitchen items, bookends, and more.
Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!
As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.
Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique. So make a difference - your way.
All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.
When you shop with Reading Vintage, you are saving a book from the landfill.
I'm passionate about preserving our past and passionate about the power of books to tell stories.
Because my goal at Reading Vintage is to connect readers to books, I hope to save these books from the landfill.
