Maryann Riker: "In the weekly schedule of the post-World War II American housewife, a strict regimen of daily activities ruled her life. This ensured a clean and organized home that was the foundation of a happy husband and clean and healthy children. (Or at least, that is what the advertising images promised.) Enjoy this small tome as a celebration of time-honored weekly rituals for domestic goddesses that many women followed to keep a well-organized home!"
