In 1861 when Isabella Beeton wrote her Book of Household Management she could not possibly have imagined the life and times of today's homemaker -- who very often juggles career, children, and home. So, as Ideal Home commands, "Move over, Mrs. Beeton!" and make way for Shirley Conran's Superwoman.
Addressed to the contemporary woman or man, Superwoman is an amusing, comprehensive guide to a way of life that so deftly pares away the unessentials that it almost proves that housework can be fun! With good humor and the survivor's will to win, Shirley Conran shows you exactly how to conquer household tasks, how to get the most out of doing the least, and feel great about it.
Shirley Conran really understands the priorities and concerns of the modern woman. As she says, "Housework has its place, which as far as I'm concerned is firmly underfoot." And she shows you how to keep it there while getting the rest of your life off the ground. Here are dozens of methods to streamline, shorten, and eliminate chores. Here's how to set up household and business budgets; how to buy the best for the least, from food to clothes to appliances; how to maintain your family, your car, your sanity; how to do repairs yourself or get the right job at the right price. Every household crisis, from moving to getting rid of household pests, is thoroughly covered. And you'll even find some of Ms. Conran's advice on how best to use the new freedom and leisure you'll acquire.
