The American Frugal Housewife eBook

Written in 1832, "The American Frugal Housewife" is remarkably current. While you probably won't be needing to restore kid gloves to their former whiteness, there is still much to be gained from reading the advice Lydia Maria Francis Child gave her readers, including a great number of recipes that I intend to sift through and update in a later publication. Her ideas on thrift, "keeping up with the Joneses," and profiting from the misery of others are as necessary today as they were more than 150 years ago, and probably 150 years hence.

Also available in wirebound paperback.
