Why Bundles are Good Buys For Anyone Who Likes a Good Deal (Or Cheapskates Like Me)

I'm a cheapskate. I need a compelling reason to plunk down cold, hard cash. (Caveat: We once had a friend who refused to order cheeseburgers when eating out because he said the mark-up on cheese was too high. I think a love of cheese is a compelling reason to buy a cheeseburger.)

All that to say, if I'm going to suggest you buy something, I feel like I should tell you why it's a good deal. Case-in-point: this year's Ultimate Homemaking Bundle.

Now, I'm a little biased about the Bundle because my book is in there. So, there's that. But I do think it's a valuable resource. Let me explain why.

What exactly is a Bundle?
It's a collection of resources, grouped together. Think of it kind of like shopping at Costco: Because you're buying in bulk, you get a discounted price on these excellent resources. The Bundle is offered once a year, for a limited time. In this case, the sale runs through Monday, May 1st. 

What's in the Bundle?
It contains a lot of resources—A LOT —106 to be exact. It's ebooks, e-courses, audios, videos, printables, and summits. You can see the full list here

Why is it a good deal?
Many of the excellent resources in the Bundle individually sell for more than the Bundle's collective price. For example:
  • Cozy Minimalist Decorating Class by Myquillyn Smith (This sells individually for $39.00.)(I've been wanting to take this, now I'm going to.)
  • Productivity and Well-Being eCourse by Lisa Grace Byrne ($47.00)(I've been a fan of Lisa's work ever since I bought her book, and I've paid to take some of her classes before.)
  • A Mom’s Guide to Better Photos: A Beginning Photography Class for Moms With Any Type of Camera by Meg Calton ($99.00)

Those are just a few of the resources. Now, let's talk about the bonuses that are included in the Bundle. Even if you wanted nothing else in the Bundle, the bonuses alone are worth the price. There are 10 bonuses totaling $250. For example: 

  • Free 1 month subscription from Kiwi Crate, $20 value ($15 off $50 shop purchase for existing customers)
  • $15 shop credit from the Cultivate What Matters shop
  • Free 1 month subscription from Bookroo, $18 value 
  • $15 store credit from Strawesome 
Personally, I'm ordering all the bonuses now and will dole them out to my kids over the summer, as needed.

Homemaking, really?
Please don't let the name of the Bundle turn you off. It sounds kind of grandmother-era-ish, but
isn't. It's all kinds of tips and tricks about finances, decluttering, meal-planning, parenting, working from home, and creativity. 

Isn't that an awful lot of, umm, reading?
It is! That's why you have one year to download the eBooks and printables and take the online eCourses, and everything you’ve downloaded becomes part of your permanent library. 

Also, you can gift the books you don't plan to use.  

What if I don't like it?
No problem. There is a 30-day happiness guarantee.

When does the sale end?
Monday, May 1st at 11:59 PM
