Get Ready For The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle 2018 – The Best Way To Beat Overwhelm!

Making a home is way harder than it looks!

When it comes to homemaking, it’s never any one thing — the family members who need constant reminders or the daily kitchen clean-up duties or the budget and financial woes or the parenting “what-the-heck-am-I-doing” moments or the basement suddenly flooding- no, it’s not any of those things in particular.

The hardest part about homemaking?

ALL THE THINGS!

It’s the cumulative effect of juggling all of the different and neverending roles and responsibilities and circumstances we face as moms each and every day and trying so desperately to give each of them our best.


Ultimate Homemaking Bundle
We want to lead beautiful, joyful, meaningful lives.
We want our homes to feel organized, functional and inviting.
We want to raise our families lovingly and intentionally.
We want to invest in ourselves and continually grow as people.

All of these things are good. But that doesn’t make them easy.

The reality is, we can all use a little help along the way from other women who have strengths in areas where we struggle or who are a little further down the road than we are. They say “it takes a village,” but in this day and age we often have to create our own village.

What if you could finally learn to organize and swipe simple decluttering methods to keep your household running smoothly most of the time?

What if you could find strategies for balancing ALL THE THINGS that come with homemaking– without going crazy and without compromising what’s most important to you?

What if you had real meal planning help and could serve your family quick & healthy meals without spending hours stressing over what to cook for dinner?

What if you found ideas to improve your relationships – your faith, your marriage, and your parenting?

And what if you could find the support you need to create an intentional home and life – one that falls in line with your values and dreams?

Well, you can. 🙂

I’m so excited to tell you about the 2018 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, a digital library of resources and tools to help you in all these areas and more!

It includes products like eBooks, online courses, printables and planners, audio files, membership sites and more, crammed into one unbelievable collection, for a ridiculously low price. Like seriously low!


Ultimate Bundles creates a lot of different bundles, but this particular one has been running for 6 years (with brand new products each year!) and it’s their most popular bundle EVER.

Over 100,000 women have picked one up since 2013.

I love working with this family-run company because they care so much about the value and quality of each bundle and their customer service is amazing.

First of all, this is the first year the specially-formatted eReader files are included, so you’ll have a smooth reading experience no matter what kind of device you use. You used to have to pay $10 extra, but since they’re now included, it’s like you’re getting a $10 bonus!

It’s also the most resources ever included in one of these bundles! Whether you want decluttering and organizing tips, ideas to help you balance all your roleshealthy meal plans, mothering or marriage tips, or anything else related to homemaking, this bundle has you covered.

Curious what the bundle includes?

When you buy the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, you’ll get access to:

  • 62 eBooks
  • 30 eCourses, videos & audio files
  • 34 printables & workbooks,
  • and 3 membership sites

… all curated to give you an insanely helpful collection of resources to touch every part of your homemaking journey – at a price that’s too good to miss.

Will our homes ever be perfect?

Nope.

Will these tools make life completely stress-free?

Uh-uh.

But learning smart strategies and solutions, and saving yourself time and stress trying to figure things out on your own sure does go a long way.

And with a little help, you really can create a home and life that (while imperfect) is pretty stinkin’ awesome. 🙂

That’s how they convince all of these amazing bloggers and product creators to include their products for so little!

For way less than the cost of an unplanned Target shopping trip, you’ll get a complete library to help you:

Your Secret Weapon In The Battle Against Mom Guilt

Find Out Your Secret Weapon To Building The Life Of Your Dreams

 

It’s time to wrap up this 7-Day blog post series about letting go of mom guilt to get what you want out of life.

We’ve covered a lot of ground already this week and you should be very proud of yourself for sticking around!

I’ll bet you surprise yourself with how much progress you make going forward using the techniques you learn with this series. Before you know it, you’ll start reaching your big lofty goals one by one, without those guilty feelings holding you back.

On this last post in the series on mom guilt, I want to leave you with some tips and advice that will help you as you continue your journey.

Before we dive in, I want to share a quick story about my daughter and her unshakable confidence.

Right after she turned 3, she got really into superheroes.

One of her favorite cartoons features young children who transform into superheroes at night when they should be in bed in their PJ’s!

She is totally convinced that she is now “Super Alyssa,” who is super strong, super fast, and super brave. If something derails her plans or gets in her way, she is quick to say “let’s try again!”

Just like the characters in her favorite show, she knows that her first try may not result in success and she may need to call in reinforcements.

But part of being a superhero is not giving up until the job is done.

And she has totally unshakeable confidence that if she keeps trying, she will eventually succeed.

mom-with-super-baby

Did you know that you have a superpower, too?

You sure do – Confidence.

I like to think of it as a secret weapon that helps you keep doubt and guilt at bay. And it is the key to your success in any area of your life.

[clickToTweet tweet=”Confidence is your very own superpower and it’s completely up to you to develop and nourish it so you can reach your full potential.  ” quote=”Confidence is your very own superpower and it’s completely up to you to develop and nourish it so you can reach your full potential.  “]

Starting to make progress toward your big lofty goals by taking the baby steps that we discussed a few days ago can be a great confidence builder.

Don’t be afraid to go back to taking baby steps any time that you feel like you’re losing confidence in yourself or you start stressing out about how big your goals are!

One of the reasons why I recommend starting with baby steps first is to give you something known as a “quick win.”

Even reaching a small milestone can do wonders for your confidence and help you push that guilt further out of your life.

Setting larger milestone goals is another great way to break your goal down into manageable tasks and to boost your confidence.

For example, if your goal is to lose a large amount of weight, break it down into 10-pound increments and focus all of your energy on reaching that next 10-pound loss.

Think about what choices you can make in the upcoming week that will help you lose 10 pounds.

Think about your choices on a daily basis, and ask yourself if it is moving you closer to your goal or further away?

Celebrate your small successes – it’s a great confidence booster! 

Tracking your overall progress is another great way to feel like you’re moving in the right direction.

Sometimes it’s hard to see how far you’ve come in the day to day activities of life.

Chart your progress on a calendar, a large graph hanging on your fridge, in a document on your computer, or even in an app on your phone.

[clickToTweet tweet=”Remember to look at how far you’ve come whenever you feel like giving up.” quote=”Remember to look at how far you’ve come whenever you feel like giving up.”]

It’s nice to have a visual reminder that what you’re doing is working and giving you the results you want and need.

Last but not least, find a cheerleader to encourage you along the way.

This could be a close friend or family member, or it could be a group of like-minded people with similar goals.

One of the awesome things about the internet is that you can find people with the same or similar interests in lots of groups and forums.

A Facebook group is a great place to connect, compare tips, ideas, and results, and of course celebrate successes and serve as a source of encouragement.

The most important thing is that you keep developing your superpower and use that confidence to craft the life you’ve always wanted.

Good luck and keep up the great work!
