The American Frugal Housewife: Free Download

Currently on Amazon you can download a FREE copy of The American Frugal Housewife. I don’t know anything about this book, but a quick read through the reviews likens this book to The Complete Tightwad Gazette, which is one of my favorite frugal books. I’m not sure how long this book will be available for free download so get it now!

If you don’t have a Kindle you can download an app for free and read this book on your computer or phone.

Thanks Money Saving Mom!

    Cute, but not really current, written in 1832.

  3. this book will always be free and can be found all over the web legally. It is no longer under copyright (like all books published before 1923, in the US), so anyone can make a copy and distribute it however they want. Most copies that you’ll find are actually just pulled from, where books outside of copyright are digitized by volunteers, and made available to the public. I’ve read this book, and enjoy it, but it’s not something that most modern people would find useful. (the medicinal sections are frightening… I’m certain that laudanum (a mixture of liquor and opium) is an effective pain-killer, but there are good reasons it’s no longer used as such (mainly the fact that it’s highly addictive and kills the brain)…

    It’s fascinating if you’re interested in history and how people lived in the past, though.
