After all, how do you think your mother was able to do such a better job than you?! 😆

Seriously though, although many of the depictions and insinuations of female homemakers of the past might be considered sexist, the principles of home economics are extremely valuable to our society and teach good living lessons to everyone, both men and women, no matter what era.

In this modern age, where families have so little time to care for their home life and living situation, the practices of 50s-era home economics need to be disseminated like never before!

This is a DVD compilation of three digitized 16mm films on the subject of home economics and making good decisions around the house.
