“Home economics” is the study and art of home management. According to Sarah Hale, author of the classic book ‘The Good Housekeeper’ in 1841, it was once an area of learning calculated “to make people love home and feel happy there.”
Sadly in modern times, it is a subject that has been largely overshadowed by more career-focused pursuits.
