While those in the youngest group questioned felt it was important for their husband's sake the middle group thought it important for the children's sake. In the 45-and-over group most said it didn't matter, perhaps because they were the Joneses. Time for Children In a survey of women's clubs, women aged 24-36 felt they didn't have enough time for all they would like to do, while those over 45 said they didn't have enough to do. Women in the middle group, whose children are well past the toddler stage, weren't as strong in their feeling of not having enough time. Spending Husbands seem to control the budget in the 37- to 45-year-old families whereas over 45 the wives take over. The youngsters, 24-36, seem to spend their money jointly. Iron Wrong Side If you "touch up" wash-wear ways iron on the wrong side to prevent surface shine.

Also shopping for her own personal needs, hobbies such as making her own clothes, garden- ng or. painting, in addition to he essentials of bathing, makeup, wardrobe care and groom- ng.
