The list goes on and on and on. I estimate about 1,000 clippings and about 3,000 "How can I" questions and answers.

Questions and answers range from:
Household; cooking; washing; carpentry; masonry; sewing; cleaning; painting; electrical;

I got this scrapbook second hand and believe that it was created from newspaper clippings over a number of years. I wasn't able to figure out which paper, but I did not scour every page. The person who painstakingly saved all these clippings, also color coded many of them according to the categories noted above. Book measures 11.5" tall by 8.5" wide. Pages have yellowed over time. Clippings are glued in really nice and flat. No bubbles or peeling edges. A few of the pages have separated from the string binding but would be remedied by some of those little circle reinforcements.
