The study focuses on the economic practices of a young family in the late Soviet province. The purpose of the work is the reconstruction of the economic practices of a young family. Among the variety of practices, the three most important were identified: solving the housing problem, arranging a private space, as well as caring for and raising children. The problem of a late Soviet person between the “official” and the “private” was also considered. The study of the late Soviet family also involves the study of public policy and related state ideology. In this regard, the terminology of M. de Certeau was used in the work, where the basic concepts are “strategies” - the position of the “strong”, and “tactics” - the position of the “weak”. Late Soviet people, abstracting from ideological norms and traditions, created their own meanings and realized inventiveness in everyday practices. Interviews were used as the main source, during which we identified practices, and what meanings the respondents gave them. The study reconstructed common economic tactics among young families in the late Soviet period in the province.
