The Finish (or Starting?) Line: 2 More E-Books on Amazon

In addition to the insanity of the final days of school, I put two more e-books up on Amazon this week.

I was determined to have those things over and done with before today, the much-anticipated Last Day of School.

Yep. I can’t wait to put my energy, my TIME, and my creativity into my kids for the next few months.

Wanna know what the e-books are?

Well, there’s a VERY good chance you already have this one:

ebook1 (586x640)

Yes.  I finally put Teaching Kids to Clean on Amazon.  I’ve been warning on Facebook for weeks that it was about to come down as a freebie and go up on Amazon.  Through the weekend, it’s only 99 cents, and will occasionally be offered for free. If you’ve read it, would you mind leaving a review over on Amazon? I’d greatly appreciate it.

And not related to cleaning in the least, I also turned my Disney site into an e-book on Amazon:

What We Ate With Mickey (Everything Our Family of Five Ate On Disney’s Quick Service Dining Plan)

 What We Ate with Mickey (Everything Our Family of Five Ate on Disney's Quick Service Dining Plan)

And while we’re talking e-books, I thought I’d send you over to this one.

From Garbage to Gourmet

It’s called From Garbage to Gourmet, and it’s written by Carrie Isaac who also put together Grocery University. She’s smart.

Like, really smart.

This e-book focuses on helping you save money by learning how to not throw away as much food.

Which . . . is smart.

And through tomorrow, she’s offering a free download of a sample page from the e-book.   And next Monday through Wednesday, the e-book itself will be 50% off.

Chore Charts, Values for Girls, Photography and Crock Pots

I really debated writing this final post about the Ultimate Homemaking E-book Bundle.

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!).

easy peasy chores

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. 


Ultimate Homemaking E-Book Bundle Sale (This Week Only)

Welcome to a post that’s chock-full of affiliate links!

Huge Library of Homemaking Resources Available this Week Only

For 6 days only, more than 75 widely-known bloggers and authors in the homemaking sphere have joined together to offer 97 of their most popular eBooks and eCourses, valued at just over $600, for the incredibly low price of $29.97! 

Sorry, but the bundle is no longer available. The individual e-books are still available, though, and I’m sure you’ll find a few you  would love in the list below!

Now, before I go on, let me say that 29.97 doesn’t automatically ring my personal Deal Bell. I have to think long and hard before I make a $30 purchase of any kind.  (Says the girl who bought her kids’ entire summer wardrobes at the 99 cent kids’ clothing sale at Salvation Army last week . . . for LESS than $30! )

So I’m going to break it down for you.  There are 97 e-books and e-courses in this bundle.  NINETY-SEVEN. That’s a lot.  One of them is my 28 Days to Hope for Your Home e-book.

Instead of thinking of them as an overwhelming 97 e-books, think of them as a library of resources. Some may not appeal to you.  Personally, I’m not in need of pregnancy or baby-related e-books. I also don’t homeschool.  BUT, when I started adding up the regular prices of the ones I DO want to read, I passed $70 before I even got out of the first category.

You know I’m a big advocate of doing whatever works best in your home.  Often this means taking a bit of one system here and another system there and adding them together to create YOUR system. This is a great opportunity to have an extensive library (right on your computer and not on your bookshelf) that will allow you to easily pick-and-choose.

This library of homemaking helps includes topics such as mothering, organization and cleaning, recipes and kitchen helps, home education, spiritual growth for both moms and kids, home décor and DIY, pregnancy and baby care, frugal living, health and fitness, and even work-from-home and financial tools.

Take a moment to look through the list, and see if you find more than a few that spark your interest.  I’ll also highlight some sections throughout this week.

As a (huge) extra, we’ve also teamed up with 10 companies to bring you over $140 in bonus offers, giving you an affordable opportunity to get products you’ll use and love for only the cost of shipping, or in some cases, entirely for free!

What’s Included in the Sale?

When you purchase The Ultimate Homemaking eBook collection, you will get instant access to any of the 97 eBooks and eCourses listed below.

PLUS over $140 of FREE Bonuses

Each The Ultimate Homemaking eBook collection comes with more than $140 of FREE Bonuses from 10 companies that we know you’ll love. More on these bonuses below.

Please note: This collection is only available from 9 a.m. EST on April 29th to 11:59 p.m. EST on May 4th. There will be no late sales offered.
