The Good Housewife’s Guide (1955!)


This was a real guide to being a good housewife.

I found it both hilarious in its naivety and infuriating in its ignorance. Here are some of my thoughts on individual “tips.”

1. I do the cooking in my house.

3. You’ve gotta be kidding.

4. My wife is not gay.

6. “…catering for his comfort”??? Are you on drugs???

10. Say what???

13. Oh, no…you did NOT say that!

16. He can take off his own damn shoes.

17. Infuriating.
