Home life for Americans was fun in the 1920s. Families had a lot of money and were able to get all of the nice new products that were being released one after another. But after all of that good and all of the new products came a huge crash. In the 1930s the stock market crashed and many people lost their jobs, so families had no more money for anything. Families lost all of their goods, fun, and even their own homes. Wives and children were forced to move into hand made shacks while the men went to hoovervilles and tried to get a job and make money.
