Ration books were an necessity in order to control the distribution of goods for those remaining at home while servicemen and servicewomen were given priority on materials deemed essential for winning the war.
Ration books contained stamps which could be redeemed for food or supplies, such as shoes. Each stamp did not have a monetary value, but any surplus owed back to an individual would be returned as points, of either red or blue chips made of compressed wood chips and glue. These points could also be collected and used to buy materials or supplies.
