Each homemaker will have to decide whether it is economy for her to bake or buy bread. The fancy breads from the bakery are more expensive than the plain bread. They can be made with very little more time than that required to make plain bread. To determine the cost of making it 'is necessary to keep a record of the cost of the ingredients and fuel. The difference between this and the value of the finished product figured at market price will give the amount saved. At present prices about one-half the cost can be saved on plain bread and more than half on fancy breads. Time has not been considered in this estimate of saving. It is a question whether the time spent in making bread would not give greater satisfaction to the family if used .in some other way.
