If you have been reading many blogs this week around the internet, chances are you have seen a lot of images like this floating around…
or maybe like this…
or maybe these…
Wow, what in the world is all of this?!
Well, simply put it is the Ultimate Homemaking eBook Bundle sale. What exactly does that mean though?
If you are anything like me the first time I saw a “bundle sale” being advertised you might be a little confused and definitely a little overwhelmed.
When I saw a bundle sale advertised for the first time on a blog several years ago, I thought all week about purchasing it, but I didn’t. I was just so overwhelmed and confused during the sale that I didn’t feel like I should buy it, even though there were so many books in it that I personally wanted. I really regretted it once the sale was over, because I had missed an opportunity to get a lot of really great resources for a price that I could actually afford.
What is a “Bundle Sale”
An eBook bundle sale is simply a chance for you to buy a lot of eBooks altogether (in a “bundle”) for one very low price.
For this particular bundle sale that is going on (through Saturday only) you get
- 92 eBooks
- 5 eCourses and…
- $140 worth of bonuses from different companies participating in the sale
All of this adds up to over $600 worth of products that you can get for only $29.97.

Okay that seems to good to be true. What is the catch?
Yes, it is not very often where you see a deal this good. It does seem like there has to be some sort of catch, doesn’t there! If you were to buy all of these books, courses, and products individually you would be paying well over $600.
The thing is though, that you probably wouldn’t choose to purchase each of these items individually. So you have to look at it in terms of what items in the “bundle” you personally think you would benefit from and would consider purchasing even if they weren’t a part of this sale.
Just because something is marked down 95% does not necessarily mean that it is a good deal for you. Good deal? Yes. Absolutely. Good deal for you? That depends.
How I personally decide if I’m going to purchase during “Bundle Sales”.
Bundle sales have become increasingly popular over the past few years. As they become more popular, I have come up with a process to help me decide whether purchasing the bundle would be a good choice for me or not. Here’s what I do:
- I go through the list of books, courses, products…whatever is being offered, and I make a quick mental list of what I am interested in. Some things I know right away I will never use, and some things I know I will love digging into.
- After I have a good idea of what products in the bundle I will use, I figure out approximately how much it would cost me to buy all of them individually. If the price of the bundle is significantly less than that price then I purchase the bundle.
That’s it! Pretty simple, but it helps me to see if the bundle is actually going to be a good deal for me or not.
In this Ultimate Homemaking eBook Bundle, as I looked through the list of products I saw several items that I would love to purchase. A lot of the books have been on my wishlist for a little while, so I was leaning towards this being a good purchase for me. I knew that some of the books I would never use, but it seemed like the value of the ones that I would use was going to make this purchase worth it.
But then…in the eCourse section, I saw Vibrant Living Strategies for Moms by Lisa Grace Byrne. I have been wanting to take one of her courses FOREVER. The cost of this course is $59. The cost of the bundle is $29.97. So immediately I knew that purchasing this bundle was a no-brainer for me!
I would pay less than $30 and get access to a course that if I purchased on it’s own would be almost $60. And it was a course that I had looked at purchasing many times before, but just didn’t have that much money to spend on!
So now I get access to the course for half the price that it would usually cost me, PLUS a ton of books that I have been wanting to get. In addition to that I get a free 2-month membership to the online workout studio that I already know I love (Fit2B), a free 3-month membership to Plan to Eat which I have been wanting to try, and a free 3-month membership to ListPlanIt which I have also really been wanting to try. (I am not sure about the rest of the freebies offered with this sale yet, because all of the others require you to pay shipping and I’m not sure which ones, if any, I will be using.)
So yes, this bundle was a no-brainer for me to buy.
And that is how I determine whether I will buy a “bundle” when these bundle sales roll around.
So there you have it folks! That is what all the hoopla is about, and that is how to determine whether it is a good deal for you or not.

I have purchased a bundle for myself, and can’t wait to take the Vibrant Living Strategies Course or to dig into some of the eBooks. If you think that this “bundle” of books, courses, and freebies will benefit you, thank you so much for supporting me, this site, and my family through your purchase. I hope you enjoy your books!!!
