I have bought several Ultimate Bundles in the last couple of years. At first I tried read all the products, use all the courses and take advantage of all the bonus offers. That was unbelievably overwhelming and I ended up feeling guilty for not taking full advantage of all the great resources.
But since then I’ve changed my perspective. I start by looking over the bundle to see if there are a number of products or resources I already planned to purchase (or have been waiting to purchase) that are included. Usually this means that based on the total amount those courses usually cost individually, I’m getting a great deal on those courses. Then I focus on using those first, then I move on to any others that look particularly interesting and I simply let the rest go (or gift them to friends I think will enjoy them).
In this particular bundle there are several products that I personally own already (which is in some ways a bummer, because this is a much better deal). But the great part is that I can confirm to you the great value they offer.
Cozy Minimalist Decorating Class by Myquillyn Smith ($39.00)
I’ll be writing more about my experience with this course in the next month or two, but the short version is I love it. I first tried the Cozy Minimalist Kids portion of the course and loved it so much I immediately joined the wait list for the mainstream course. It has been so helpful for figuring out my personal style, what works for my family and a way to make our new home feel like ours. The Facebook group is one of my favorite aspects because it gives you access to help from others (not the least of which is The Nester, Myquillyn Smith, who regularly chimes in with suggestions and possible solutions to the lovely limitations we each have in our homes). I should also note, that this course normally costs more than the whole bundle, so if that was all you used, you’d still be getting a deal!
Fit2B Studio Foundational 5 + ecourse ($19)
I love Fit2B Studio! I’ve maintained my membership for years because it is one of the most useful resources for keeping healthy exercise in my crazy life and making sure I’m prioritizing tummy safe fitness and healthy alignment throughout my day. Beth Learn is amazing and her gentle, encouraging approach to fitness has made me feel more secure in my own journey to strength and wellness. That being said, I remember being nervous about taking the plunge to join. I was worried that I wouldn’t use it or it would be a waste of my money. (Heads up, did use it and money well spent). So this e-course is a great chance to get your feet wet. This course gives you access to 9 different Fit2B routines (several of which are my personal favorites that I continue to use even after years of membership). While this course alone may not make the bundle purchase worth it, combined with so many other wonderful resources it definitely adds great value.
The Temper Toolkit: How to Take Control of Your Temper Before You Lose it!
by Lisa-Jo Baker ($29.00)
I’m a long time follower of Lisa-Jo Baker’s and I recently helped launch her new book, Never Unfriended. (We also watched the video teaching she did for MOPS International about anger at a recent meeting of my local MOPS group, and it was fantastic). So naturally I was very excited to see that her new course The Temper Toolkit was included in the bundle. This is one of the only products that I haven’t personally tried yet that I still strongly recommend because I have yet to read anything of Lisa-Jo’s that I didn’t love. So I’m going to include it in my list of products that make this course worth buying.
Additional Resources I’ve Used and Loved
21 Days to a More Disciplined Life by Crystal Paine ($4.99)
I first read this e-book several years ago but I keep coming back to it time and again because of the way Crystal encourages us to focus on building one new habit at a time. I know I struggle with wanting to fix EVERYTHING at once and as a result completely sabotage my efforts. This book makes setting goals and building new habits seem more attainable.
Steady Days: A Journey Toward Intentional, Professional Motherhood
by Jamie Martin ($11.95)
Jamie is another one of my favorite authors/bloggers because she makes me feel like I’m not alone. She is also a homeschooler (though that is not the target audience for the book) so it really helps me to know that she understands the daily struggle of having children under foot 24/7. This book was part of my regularly scheduled nights out away from the kids. I’d take off to Panera while hubby gave the kids dinner, and read a chapter of this book while I eat in peace before tackling my writing project for the evening. (Which reminds me, I really should start doing that again soon . . .)
So there you have it, those are just a few of the many resources available in this bundle and if you only bought it for those, you’d have an amazing deal.
Don’t let the epic size of this bundle intimidate you and keep you from taking advantage of just a fraction of its amazing resources.
