The front cover is black and yellow with a line drawing of a woman in a dress and apron putting food away in the refrigerator. The rest of the text is 40 prize-winning suggestions submitted by Home Economist in the National Contest sponsored by Nash-Kelvinator. The back cover is white and has The best store for the most people Lansing Dry Goods Co. Below that is your next kitchen with information on Kelvinator products. The front end page has a typed signed letter from Joan Adams, Director, Kelvin Kitchen addressed to the housewives of America on a yellow background. The 40 tips are ideas such as eliminate the pantry, use shelves and cupboards more efficiently, better storage of leftovers, and better storage of fresh foods. There is a section called Magic in the food storage center which says that even Aladdin could not do better than the housewife with her food storage center and Kelvinator products.
