In our present day society more and more importance is being placed on work simplification and the proper management of time and energy. However, most of the material pertaining to this has been done only with the “full time” homemaker and mother in mind. Since one third of the labor force in the United States is made of women, perhaps it is time that some thought be given to ways in which the working woman manages her household.

This study, has been designed to find out how employed women in Nebraska manage their households. It is the hope of the author, that a working woman – single or married, young or old – may be able to identify herself, in whole or in part – in this study. And then perhaps to determine whether or not she needs to alter her procedures of homemaking; or to plot a new course that will give her greater personal satisfaction and happier family relationships in the years to come.
