This series was created to honor my grandmother and her homemaking journal that she created during WWII. In her journal she kept a record of household tips & tricks and remedies that helped her to save money when things were not readily available. Several years ago my mother loaned my grandmothers journal to a co-worker and *never got it back. With the help of family members we are trying to recreate her journal for the next generation of our family.
Below is a list of items that were available during WWII and each item has a list of uses that made life a little easier. I’ve found that a lot of the tips and tricks that my grandmother used work better than the expensive, single use products that we buy today.
