I checked my library and of course they didn't have it. Rather than pay for them to get it for me, I was able to read the book online at Project Gutenberg. This wonderful resource for difficult to find books works for me. Bonus: No fines from overdue library books! (Not that I would know anything about that.)
If you're interested in The American Frugal Housewife, it is kind of like the Tightwad Gazette of the mid-nineteenth century. Some of its advice is not applicable to modern life, but some of it is still very astute.
It is wise to keep an exact account of all you expend--even of a paper of pins. This answers two purposes; it makes you more careful in spending money, and it enables your husband to judge precisely whether his family live within his income. No false pride, or foolish ambition to appear as well as others, should ever induce a person to live one cent beyond the income of which he is certain. If you have two dollars a day, let nothing but sickness induce you to spend more than nine shillings; if you have one
dollar a day, do not spend but seventy-five cents; if you have half a dollar a day, be satisfied to spend forty cents.
In early childhood, you lay the foundation of poverty or riches, in
the habits you give your children. Teach them to save everything,--not for their
own use, for that would make them selfish--but for some use. Teach them to share everything with their playmates; but never allow them to destroy anything.
