Chore Charts, Values for Girls, Photography and Crock Pots

I really debated writing this final post about the Ultimate Homemaking E-book Bundle.    I’m sorry.  This sale is now over.

Really, I don’t love selling (not that you’d know from this past week), and I’ve been amazed at how many of you have  purchased. I’ve already made enough in affiliate commissions to make this sale worth my time, so I’d really prefer to crawl under a rock and hope for a few last sales to trickle in while praying you don’t all hate me for having mentioned it EVERY day for a week.

But . . . I had planned all week for today’s post.  It’s the one where I highlight some e-books I didn’t know about before this sale, and that I am sooo excited to own.

I love them enough that I want you to know about them too.  Even if you can’t purchase the bundle this week, maybe they’ll be ones you’ll keep on your list for the future when/if you need them.

And just so you know, I’ll be using my affiliate links to the individual items in this post, except for the first two I mention. They don’t have individual affiliate programs. I wish they did, though, because I love them.

Balcony Girls

Balcony Girls

I had no earthly idea what this e-book was when I opened it. I know who The Reluctant Entertainer is, so I assumed it was about folding napkins or making radish roses or something like that.

Not at all. It’s a curriculum Sandy Coughlin created for weekly Balcony Girls meetings she held for her daughter and other girls.

When I started Balcony Girls back in 2005 (my daughter was in 3rd grade) the idea originated from wanting to teach young girls about virtues and friendships. It takes time, love, and effort to invest into their lives, but it’s so worth it.

Each Balcony Girls afternoon consists of a lesson, craft or snack idea, a game or object lesson that goes along with the study, and tips, ideas and instruction on how to make it all personally impacting for the girls.

Books One and Two contain eight lessons each, and both are included in the Ultimate Homemaking E-book Bundle. Balcony Girls alone is a $19.90 value.

Y’all, when I started reading Balcony Girls, my Mom Heart began to sing.  I want to do this with my daughter. They are so well put together and full of depth, meaning, and fun. I’m praying about how I’m going to use this with my daughter and her friends beginning sometime in the next two years.


iPhone Photography – the visual guide

This one’s just cool. Glancing through it I’ve already learned things. I didn’t think it would happen to me (as a lover of my “real” camera), but I’ve realized so many of the pictures I take of everyday moments in my kids’ lives are taken on my iPhone.  Ten years ago, who would have thought we’d all have cameras in our purses or in our hands at all times when we left the house?  I’m excited to learn to use mine better.

And this one is 9.97.  I promise it IS a coincidence that the two I’ve talked about so far basically add up to the cost of the entire bundle.  Really.

Easy Peasy Chores


I have no-frills chore charts for my kids that you can print for free here, but this is one awesome chore system. Easy Peasy Chores is full of printable, picture-based (perfect for non-readers) chores with instructions on how to use the system in your home. Seriously, it’s cool. You can print it in either black and white or color, and the color version includes various skin-tones for the parents in the pictures (LOVE that!).

Also, the one you’ll get as part of the bundle is the homeschool edition.  If (like me) you don’t homeschool, don’t worry. It’s exactly the same as the regular version, but with the addition of cards that have to do with homeschool-specific stuff.

It’s 17.99 on its own. Ummmm, are you doing the math here? Just the three I’ve mentioned so far are more than 45.00.  Just sayin’. (The whole bundle of 97 e-books that is available ONLY THROUGH TOMORROW MAY 4TH is only $29.97.)

Crock On


Crock On! is a crockpot cookbook (which is all I usually need to know), but it’s also funny. The pictures look delicious and the recipes don’t include canned cream-of-something soup. Don’t get me wrong, I love my cream-of-something soups.  But sometimes I think about thinking about being healthier.  I’m planning to use this e-book to help me find some go-to crockpot recipes that don’t use them.  (Since most of mine do use them.)

And honestly, most of the cookbooks included in the e-book bundle are whole-foods based.

And last but not least, I thought I’d mention that if you already have my e-book, 28 Days to Hope for Your Home, that’s included, you can enjoy all these e-books and send 28 Days to a friend. 

Right. If you’ve already purchased 28 Days, you can send the second “copy” to someone else who might need hope.

Or to someone who needs to see what goes on inside your head . . .

Oh, and if your husband isn’t sure about you spending  almost $30 on e-books . . . casually mention that one of the e-books is called 31 Days to Great Sex.

Please don’t hate me for sharing this last post about the Ultimate Homemaking E-book Bundle. Yes, I’m excited about the money I’m making from this sale, but I also really didn’t want you to miss these things that are included. And there are more that you’ll love. I just couldn’t highlight them all.

And the sale is over May 4th, Saturday night at 11:59 EST.  If you’re a procrastinator, you need to know that.

Please come back Monday for a post with no selling whatsoever that will have a really funny joke in it.  Seriously, it’s a joke written by my professional-comedian-cousin that my kids ask to hear over and over.  I can almost guarantee you’ll laugh.

Oh, and just to be legal, here’s ONE MORE reminder that the links to Easy Peasy Chores and Crock On are my affiliate links. But you knew that, right? I’ve never pretended I’m not in this blogging thing for the big bucks. Maybe I’m not even really a slob and just made that up so I could talk people into buying stuff.  Maybe I took all those clutter pictures at someone ELSE’S house.

    Sometimes I “think about thinking about being healthier” too, but then I just eat cookies until the feeling passes. 🙂

    I actually enjoyed your posts all week. Even though I thought I wouldn’t be able to get them. My husband knew I wanted them badly. He told me I could get them today. I did. I’m so excited! Thanks for making it fun!

    I’ve been debating buying the bundle all week. You were right in your first post: $30 is a lot of money, esp for ebooks. But, you’ve highlighted some awesome books this week. The Balcony Girls totally convinced me. We live overseas and my girls (age 8 & 9) don’t have a lot of opportunity for girl stuff. They are missing Girl Scouts, school, Bible class, VBS, etc. It’s hard. I’m looking forward to having a special, girl-oriented thing to do with them. They need it. And that is worth much more than $30. Seriously, thank you SO much for sharing this stuff. Don’t hesitate to suggest that we buy items that you think might be a blessing to your reader.

    🙁 if I weren’t 2 weeks behind in my blog reading I wouldn’t have missed this awesome sale.
