I know I have shared Ultimate Bundle deals  before and they are all great deals but this year’s Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is by far the best bundle deal I have seen.

This thrifty gal is  excited because even if she just uses the top 3 resources she wants out of the bundle she is still  saving money

1. Cozy Minimalist Mom (an e-course) Learn the 10 concepts to create a Cozy Minimalist home even with kids through this online, self-study video course. ($29)

2. Sweet Life Planner (a downloadable, printable planner) The Sweet Life Planner will help you plan ahead, identify your top goals, and develop rock solid habits. ($35)

3.. Building A Frame Work: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook (eBook) Takes the guesswork out of growing your blog! ($25)

Total of of my list of 3: $89 ( the bundle is $29.97 so I save $59 even if I don’t open up another eBook , e-course or take advantage of the $300 bonus package)

Bonuses (sized)

This thrifty gal is  excited because the bonus package has 6 gift worthy items

FREE Kids Discovery Box from GreenKidCrafts.com ($24.95 value)

$15 Gift Certificate to InkWELL Press ($15 value)

$15 Credit to Hope Ink Shop PLUS Two FREE 8×10 Art Prints with Any Purchase ($71)

FREE SPOT Treatment for Acne & Eczema OR a $15 Gift Certificate from Bloom Naturals ($15 value)

I worked it out and  if you use these 4 bonuses you can buy 6 gifts and need to pay just $13 more for the 3rd 8 by 10 print at Hope Ink plus the shipping will be  around $25 total for all 6 gifts , since the bundle is essentially more than paid for just by the 3 resources I plan to use that I listed above that means these gifts work out to just $6.50 each.  Those are some pretty nice gifts for under $7 each!

This thrifty gal is excited because she will get to keep some nice bonuses for herself

Even after giving away 6 bonus items I still get to take advantage of the following and none of these bonuses have shipping costs (I am already a Grove Collaborative member so I will take the VIP membership instead of the free cleaners)

FREE 90-Day Pro Membership to ListPlanIt.com ($30)

FREE 1-Year MollyGreen.com Membership ($29 value)

FREE Hand Massage Routine Videos from Melt Couples Massage ($24 value)

FREE Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap, Mrs. Meyer’s Multi Surface Spray, Grove Collaborative Spray Bottle, Grove Collaborative Scrubber Sponges and FREE 60-day VIP trial with FREE shipping from Grove Collaborative ($30 value)

FREE Online Class from Craftsy ($29.99-$69.99 value)


This thrifty gal is excited because she sees the potential to improve her finances through books available in all 10 areas of the bundle

Living the thrifty life is about so much more than just learning how to manage your money well. A successful thrifty person realizes all areas of life can effect your financial well being. Learning to budget, cook, manage your time well, increase your energy supplies, and more are all important to live an abundant thrifty life.

Below are snapshots of what is in all 10 areas of the bundle so you can check out what might help you in what areas of life you are currently struggling in or just plain need encouragement in.

Whew! That is an overwhelming amount of e-Books , e-Course and printable packs to look at all at once but remember—you don’t have to use all these resources to make this bundle a great deal!

Remember my list at the start of this post. I was able to write a list of just 3 resources out of the 93 in the Ultimate Homemakers bundle and still came out saving over $50!

I suggest you do the same. Don’t view  the bundle as  you would a  bottle of shampoo that you have to use to the last drop in order for it to be a thrifty deal. Instead think of it as a  heaping box of clothing at a yard sale marked .25 cents each or whole box for $2.

You take a brief look and know that for sure you will use more than 8 items in the box so you buy it. When you get home you find 12 items and toss 10.  You saved money but you didn’t use it all.

That is the ultimate thrifty way to view the Ultimate Homemakers bundle!

(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)

An amazing book bundle deal starts today where you can grab over $1000 worth of eBooks, e-courses, printables and a great line up of $300 worth of bonuses for just $29.97.

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

The book bundle is called the Ultimate Homemakers Bundle, which is available for just a few short days, I decided to make this week’s focus of 3 Things I am Loving Lately about 3 eBooks I recently read from the bundle.

easy. homemade

The first eBook I am LOVING from the Ultimate Homemakers bundle……

easy. homemade. : Homemade Pantry Staples For The Busy Modern Family.

I am looking forward to trying out several recipes that I took screenshots of in easy. homemade. (you can’t  earmark an eBook but you can screen shot it!) . I have plans to try out the Italian dressing mix, cheese crackers, fried apples, easy donuts and basic muffin recipe.

You can find easy. homade in the DIY & Homemade section of the Ultimate Homemakers bundle.
DIYHomemade (deal)

The books in this section total $43.88 and it is just one of 11 sections, plus bonuses included in the $29.97 bundle.

mindset for moms

The Second eBook I am LOVING from the Ultimate Homemakers bundle……

mindset for moms: From Mundane to Marvelous Thinking In Just 30 Days

Okay so as a snail pacer I have to say that the changes in this book will probably take most people way more than 30 days to make. However I have been reading  a day or two of Mindset for Moms, each night for the past week or so and my mama soul is being refreshed by what I have been reading.

Mindset for Moms is part of the Motherhood section of the Ultimate Homemakers Bundle.
Motherhood (sized)

The books in this section of the bundle come to a total of $55.92 that is $25.95 MORE than the entire bundle price of $29.97!

your retreat

The third eBook I am LOVING from the Ultimate Homemakers bundle……

Your Retreat: A Guide To Giving Yourself A Personal Planning Day

This eBook will help you set goals, organize your day, and live life with intention. It comes with a pack of Printables to help guide you every step of the way to creating manageable goals that will help you live the life you want to live.

Your Retreat is found in the Self Care section of the Ultimate Homemakers Bundle.

SelfCare (with words)

The books in the Self Care Section equal $221.84! Remember the entire bundle of 93 resources and bonuses cost just under $30! That is a lot of savings in just this one section and again the bundle has 11 sections and a  bonus section worth over $250.

3 Tips For Ultimate Bundles From An Experienced Buyer

1. You can send the pdf copies to a kindle app on your iPad or tablet for easier reading. Just google “how to send a PDF to my kindle” and all sorts of handy articles and YouTube videos will come up.

I moved some to my kindle but found them a bit small to read and on my kindle the font size function won’t work on PDF’s however when I sent them to my iPad the screen is so much bigger that I could read them with ease. It sure is easier to curl up and read from the iPad than my laptop.


Psst….Grab the bundle today or tomorrow and get a free $10 e-reader upgrade meaning you don’t have to even do this tip!

2. Make a list of what you want to read first and then download just your top 3 choices to your device at first. You can store the rest of the files on a flash drive. I am not at all computer savvy and I was able to figure out how to do this with again a simple google search.

3. Thrifty tip: Think of the gift possibilities in the bonus section: For instance in this bundle you could get 3 8 by 10 prints to give as gifts from Hope Ink Shop for just the cost of shipping. You could use the $15 gift certificate from Inkwell to buy another gift for just the cost of shipping. That is 4 gifts right there! Plus you could use the Craftsy class credit to take a class that could help you create homemade gifts.

Surprised By Motherhood: Kindle Edition Just $2.99


(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)


I read Surprised by Motherhood in the fall of 2015 and really enjoyed it!

The Kindle edition is $2.99 right now

This book had me laughing, crying and screaming “me too”.

I read it mostly while wrapped in a blanket and waiting for my son’s soccer games to start. Which seems like a pretty suitable place to read a book on motherhood.

Price could change at any time, so make sure to check it before you buy.

Grab your copy here!

PLUS these great titles are also still on sale!

Psst…. my favorite way to pay for kindle book deals is with Amazon gift cards earned through Swagbucks and/or  InstaGC

Plus! Have you checked out my Hot Deals Page where I share deals, coupons, free samples and more.
