46 Tips To Save You Time, Money, and Trouble (From The 1950’s!)

303 valuable household tips pamphlet

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a pamphlet from 1958 giving you over 300 tips “to save you time, money and trouble!”

Found it on Ebay for $3.00 and just had to pick it up for the blog :) (You’re welcome)

There’s a ton of stuff that’s no longer applicable (sewing machine tips, typewriter hacks, and a bunch of not-so PC comments around house wives), but by and large it’s actually a pretty solid brochure even in these days. Our parents would be so proud seeing us talk about them today ;)

In fact, why don’t you *email them* this and get some good bonding in? I’ll wait…

Alright, so here are my favorites from the batch…

If you feel like frugality has been lost in your lives, hopefully this will bring it back for good. And then you can pass it along to your future generations in another 60 years too ;)

If we don’t save frugality, who will??

My Favorite Frugality Tips:

#1. To remove water marks from furniture, use several drops of spirits of camphor on damp cloth and rub over mark.

#6. An emergency ice bag can be made by folding a wet towel and freezing in an ice cube tray. Put frozen towel in a plastic bag and tie end shut.

#11. Keep your shower cap pinned to the inside of your shower curtain with a small plastic clothes pin. It will drip in the tub and always be there to use again.

#17. Run hard candy through a food chopper and sprinkle it on ice cream or frosted cakes. A joy to see and eat.

#21. If you are remodeling your basement, don’t throw away left over moldings. Some shapes make very attractive picture frames.

#29. Cut the bristles of an old toothbrush down to 3/8″ and you have a good fingernail brush.

#33. Fresh vegetable salads of all kinds are greatly improved by adding a little lemon juice.

#47. Squeaky floor boards can usually be stopped by pouring hot melted soap in the crack.

#66. Peanut butter mixed with honey and raisins make an ideal sandwich.

#68. Removing rust spots from metal tools can be done safely and easily with a typewriter eraser.

#70. Temporary counter space in a kitchen can be provided if you pull a drawer out part way and put a cookie sheet on it.

#71. A belt to match any dress can be easily made by folding material over an old belt and fastening the center on the underneath side with iron-on tape.

#79. Don’t throw away that old large hand bag. It makes a good first aid, sewing or what-not kit to carry in your car trunk for emergencies.

#83. If you have trouble threading a needle, push it through a piece of white paper; the white background will help you see the eye better.

#89. A periodic wiping with a cloth dipped in turpentine, of the tile and shower stall in the bathroom, will renew its look.

#94. Too many shoes on the floor, fasten a curtain rod to the inside of your closet door and hang them by their heels.

#100. Dental floss is ideal for sewing on buttons. It’s stronger and will last longer than thread.

#108. Green leaves on the outside of lettuce contain more vitamins than the inside ones, so don’t throw away more than necessary.

#113. When reading and mixing from an open recipe book, place a piece of clear glass or plastic over it to keep it clean.

#119. Left over scraps of floor tile or linoleum can easily be made into very nice coasters for beverage glasses.

#125. If the canary refuses to use his bath bowl, put a little sand in the bottom of the bowl. He may be afraid of the slippery bottom.

#127. Iodine will cover a scratch in mahogany furniture just fine.

#137. If the wire in your cheese cutter breaks, you can replace it with a wire violin or music string.

#144. If you need a bed tray, some ironing boards make a good substitute.

#149. Melted marshmallows make ideal toppings for cup cakes. Ten minutes before the cup cakes are finished baking, pace a marshmallow on top of each cake. When finished baking, they are covered with a delicious topping.

#156. Seldom used luggage is a good place to store blankets, if short on storage space.

#161. You can mend small tears in many curtains, by merely applying colorless nail polish.

#162. To keep plants fresh when you are away, stand them on bricks covered with water in your bath tub. The bricks will absorb enough water to keep the plants moist.

#180. A mason jar of ice cubes, if packed with your picnic lunch, will keep it cool and tasty. When ice cubes melt, you have a jar of good drinking water.

#185. Grapefruit seeds if planted thickly in rich earth about half inch deep and kept well watered, will sprout into a beautiful green center piece in about two weeks.

#193. Bake potatoes in a muffin pan. The potatoes will not move around and will be easy to remove from oven.

#195. Shoe or boot laces that lose their metal tips can be prevented from fraying at the tips with several light coats of fingernail polish. (Editor’s Note: I personally just burn the tips with a lighter to fix any frayed cords, but nail polish definitely sounds like a better – and safer – option :))

#201. Those small clear glass jars with screw tops are invaluable for holding nails, tacks, screws, bolts, herbs, spices or what-have-you. If you nail the lids to the underside of shelves, they are out of the way, easy to reach and easy to see.

#221. Your house key will be easy to locate in your handbag if you tie it to a cord and the other end of the cord to the top of your handbag. Just fish it out.

#223. A finger cut from an old rubber glove and slipped over the top of your broom or mop handle will keep it from falling when leaned against the wall.

#236. For a special occasion cake, stick short pieces of macaroni into icing as vases to hold tiny flowers.

#252. A small amount of vinegar in your dishwasher will protect hands and make dishes sparkle.

#260. Envelopes attached to the inside of drawers with thumb tacks or scotch tape will hold many small items and keep the items easy to locate.

#278. Pieces of maraschino cherries, oranges, grapefruit, etc. frozen in your ice cubes will add color to your iced drinks.

#281: Store your folding summer chairs in the garment bags you get from your cleaner. It will keep them clean and dust free.

#284. When hanging a picture, mark the spot for the nail with a moistened finger; the spot will stay until you drive in the nail.

#286. You can keep neckties unwrinkled when traveling if you pack them between the pages of a magazine.

#291. To use the last bit of ketchup from a bottle, why not pour in a quantity of oil and vinegar and make a delicious salad dressing.

#293. If your medicine cabinet or shower has sliding that stick, just rub a little soap on the slides.

#299. Put a cup hook near your sink to hold your rings when washing dishes. This habit may save a precious stone from coming loose and going down the drain.

#303. Ivy leaves make unusual and attractive place setting cards for your dinner table. Write names on leaves with white ink.

************

Not too bad, right?? Anyone already doing any of these? Anyone find some good ones they think they’ll try out?

I was LOVING the marshmallow one and the little macaroni vases, haha… How do you even come up with that? Accidentally drop macaronis on the cake and think – “Hey! I could put a flower in that!?”

Either way – some solid ideas and something our generation is not the best at ;)

The back cover also had some interesting items from back in the day…

Here’s a snapshot of the banking ad that was attached, and whom apparently the pamphlet was made for (or in partnership with anyways – looks like there were spaces for the producer to market it to a handful of businesses which was pretty slick!)

vintage banking services

Christmas Clubs!! Those used to be all the rage back in the day! I remember a good friend telling me about them a few years back – pretty cool concept that seems to have fallen by the wayside. From :

The Christmas club is a savings program that was first offered by various banks and credit unions in the United States beginning in the first half of the 20th century, and including the Great Depression. The concept is that bank customers deposit a set amount of money each week into a special savings account, and receive the money back at the end of the year for Christmas shopping.

And you’ll see similar ones up there too like “Vacation Club” and “Tax Club”… Though sadly no “Early Retirement Club” – yet ;)

So there you have it – a bunch of tips that would make your mother proud. Or even , for that matter! Who actually just dropped their first book yesterday:

Might make for a great companion piece?

But yeah – big ups to Morgan H. Wilt who published this pamphlet for us over half a century ago… Your work lives on good sir/madam – even in the digital age!!

And if anyone would like to pick up their own copy of this, here’s how to do so ;)

I feel like people were much more open with sharing tips and frugal hacks back in the day? Unlike now where most people just put up a front but are financially dying on the inside and to afraid/nervous/proud to speak up? I could be wrong, but there is a reason $$$ blogs are so popular these days haha…

#17 — I ended up with powdered candy trying to do a peppermint garnish for a mocha through the coffee grinder. The pulse feature on a food processor works great. Chop,not grind!
#221 — I’m glad to say handbag manufacturers have figured this out and often sew in an attachment piece for clipping a key chain inside the bag.

I love #260! Great idea for keeping necessary items handy without having to search an entire drawer.
Our bank still offers a Christmas Club. Last time I checked, it pays 1% interest if you make all the payments. It’s an old fashioned small bank that made it thru the recession without borrowing. Still NOT automated online (at least we don’t have to worry about identity theft!), they choose to grow slowly & without going into debt. Savings accounts are still handwritten in a passbook like the olden days! However, statements are computerized & mailed monthly. If I want info. regarding a deposit/withdrawal I have to call them. Automatic Payments are still available for paying bills, mortgage, etc. They give a “Free Lifetime Checking & Savings” card to customers so there are no fees or balance requirements but they do charge for other services (bounced checks, wire transfers, etc).
Thanx for sharing all of these great tips from back in the day!

Yes, the older people like the old banking methods. My mother in law still writes a check for every bill & mails it! I pay all our bills online or thru automatic withdrawal. I write one check & mail it per year for our property taxes & that’s only because they charge an extra fee if we pay it online.

My credit union also has a Christmas Club that a lot of people in our small town use, along with a Vacation Club and Property Tax Club. They also have something called a Payday Savers Club, which helps people automate savings for retirement. I haven’t used any as I just budget for these things, but it’s interesting to see how these services hang on in rural communities.

A lot of people don’t know this, but I was a history major in college. Nuggets from the past like this are invaluable. Bringing them back into the mainstream is really a great thing. History tends to repeat itself and a lot of the things you mentioned and wrote about (Christmas clubs, vacation clubs) show the link to today’s present and their relevance to the past. We generally still deal with the same main problems financially. I loved reading about this. Thanks J$!

These things always make me wonder what savings “hacks” are worth the squeeze. Dental floss to sew on buttons? Was thread that expensive? I wonder if there is any correlation between dental health and button loss in the 1950s haha

Interesting find!

Reply

25 J. Money March 7, 2018 at 10:22 am

Probably more about saving *time* and energy on that one so you don’t have to keep sewing them back on again later (due to strength of the floss), but yeah – frugality def gets a bad rap for often not being worth the time sadly!

I helped put myself through school doing custom sewing for people. DO NOT use dental floss to sew on buttons!!!!! It’s too strong. The floss will cut and tear the fabric, leaving you a bigger mess than just a button falling off. If you have trouble losing buttons you can actually purchase special thread that is thicker and stronger, but won’t cut through fibers like dental floss does. I bought a little spool 15 years ago and am still using it.
Fun tips to read. Thanks for sharing them!

Very nostalgic Jay.

#29 about a homemade fingernail brush… My grandparents used to go on about brushing fingernails.

Heck, we actually had a fingernail brush in the bathroom when I was a kid… but I didn’t use it.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, people don’t brush their nails anymore!

Why is that? Are we cleaner than previous generations? Maybe, not doing as much dirty work?

Right, I’m off to put a rubber glove finger on a broom that keep falling down (#223).

What a goldmine!

Reply

57 J. Money March 9, 2018 at 9:56 am

Haha…. I don’t know about the nail brushing, but I would agree that we’re cleaner than previous generations! At least going back to the colonial times… I do a lot of reading about the late 1700’s, early 1800’s and they believed bathing was actually *bad* for you (despite everyone dying of disease all around them), so they only bathed twice a year. Can you imagine??

The Christmas Club. I had one when I was a kid. Every week I put a portion of my allowance in my Christmas Club account. By Christmas I would have $50 to spend on gifts for mom, dad and grandparents, like a soap-on-a-rope for Pop or a Jean Nate for grandma.

The tip about using an old toothbrush as a nail scrubber……EWW. I think I’ll break down and spend a few bucks on a real one.

A little late to the party here but needed to comment.

You know when you have those moments where you go “That’s crazy I was just talking about this!”? Last Friday I was sitting in a pub in Wesendorf Germany for a birthday party. Every so often someone would walk into the pub, not say anything to anyone, go to the wall and shove some money into what looked like a small bank of mail boxes and then leave. Being from Canada I had no idea what it was all about.

When I asked one of the people I was with what was going on he explained the Christmas box to me. Apparently this used to be a big deal when interest rates were higher but some people do it still today regardless, but the premise behind it is you have to deposit every week and then right before Christmas you get the deposits back interest so you can buy gifts. Every time you miss a payment there is a small penalty. I thought it was a pretty neat idea.

Life is crazy, just last week I see this for the first time and then today I read about it on my favorite PF blog.

Great Post!

64 J. Money March 9, 2018 at 10:06 am

Heyyyy that’s cool!!!

And attached to a bar even??? Was there literally a bank in there or just like a mini post office or something where people were stashing cash and then open it up later whenever needed? (Which would actually make for another interesting way to save, haha…. so long as no one knew the cash was piling up in there ;))

Very fun to read this morning, thanks for taking the time :)

65 Jeff March 10, 2018 at 2:41 am

It almost looked like a miniature mailbox like you see on the main floor of an apartment building, but much smaller. It only had maybe 30 boxes and each box had a small slot in it. The boxes couldn’t be much more than 3″x3″x6″. The people really had to fold up bills to get them shoved in the small slots.

The money is counted by the bar man who is also the owner each week. There is a minimum amount of money that has to be deposited weekly and for every time you didn’t deposit there is a small penalty when the money is taken out before Christmas. By the sounds of it you can’t take money whenever you want, there is one specified day in December, the whole purpose was to have a way to buy Christmas presents, hence “Christmas Club”.
