The American Frugal Housewife

Well here’s a fun and interesting “little” freebie. The American Frugal Housewife was offered by the Homeschool Freebie of the Day and still seems to be available.  Download the PDF file and take a look at this 109 page manual that teaches homemaking, cooking, how to raise daughters (now there’s some talk-generating reading!), lectures about frugality and more.

Think of it as one part history, one part home ec.

I’m interested in checking out some of the recipes for cheap custards, pies, etc.  I think I’ll do without the calf’s foot jelly though…
