The Bundles That Made My Basket

Curious to see what I purchased this year?  Here are the main things I focused on. While I LOVE the pre-assembled bundles, this year I decided to go the route of building my own bundles. 

I chose 3 bundles and used the “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” option to stack up the savings. 

  • Buy 5 for $39 (with no price limit) – I added the digital homeschool convention, Brain Based Movements workshop, Parenting is Heart Work manual, U.S. Geography Games & Resources, and the Presidents online course.
  • Buy 10 for $39 ($19.99 and under) – Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary, Spelling Workbook 3, Spelling Workbook 4, Bible Memory 4 Kids, Developing a Quiet Time, Map Trek, Excavating English, The Homeschool Mother’s Prayer Journal, and The Ultimate Language Arts Cheat Sheets
  • Buy 5 for $25 ($19.99 and under) – this was my free bundle (yay!), ALL the Maestro Classics mp3s and unit study. 

The things I am most excited about – Brain Based Movements and the US Geography Games.  The no price cap bundle was definitely the one I wanted to get the most out of my money! In the end that bundle was valued at $324 – and I paid $39! 

Buy 2 Bundles & Get 1 FREE. Click for Details!


Overall though, I’m thrilled because these are products I’ll be using the next few years, and I’m thinking through some co-op ideas – just mulling over things in general. The Buy 1, Get 1 Free option is honestly a GREAT deal, especially if you end up buying more – the offer extends to Buy 4, Get 2 Free…etc. There’s no cap (well, unless you buy every single bundle! :)

Be sure to create and account and start browsing soon though in case you need time to think! Once you create an account, it will save your cart (don’t make the same mistake I did last year and forget to log in!).

A BRAND NEW Bundle You Will LOVE!! (Six Days Only)

Parenting is seriously one of the hardest jobs around. Being responsible for tiny humans and guiding them along as they grow up into adults can be scary as anything. I know – we have four! What I do know is it can also be one of the most rewarding. And exhausting. But exhilarating. There are lots of other adjectives we can add on here, right? 

You get it. Parenting can make us run through a range of emotions in under 1 minute flat. 

If you’ve ever had conflicting feelings about parenting, I have something for you: The Parenting Super Bundle.

Before you stop reading though – there is a SPECIAL BONUS at the end of this post – don’t miss it! 

The Parenting Super Bundle

This all new bundle is a collection of 35 eBooks, 23 printables, 10 eCourses, 9 workbooks, 2 audios, and 1 membership site, designed to help you:

  • Become a kinder, more intentional parent
  • Choose consequences that are more effective
  • Raise kids you actually (ahem!) like and want to hang out with
  • Find healthy ways to release your frustration
  • Eliminate the “gimmes” and teach them to serve others
  • Plus, so much more!

The combined value of the resources in the bundle is over $1,270, but you get EVERYTHING for 98% off! 

The Parenting Super Bundle is brought to you by the folks behind the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and they have filled it with so many helpful resources. I’m especially excited since it also includes BOTH of our Student Planners – a $16 value on it’s own!!  

Here are a few of the categories in the bundle I don’t think you should miss though – check out what they include: chore charts, planners, resources for your homeschool, and SO MUCH for parents of toddlers and preschoolers. 

A Special Offer for You!!

If the above resources don’t sound interesting to you, don’t worry. I haven’t yet mentioned this other AMAZING resource I’m offering to those who purchase their bundle through my link!! :)

That’s right: I am offering a special bonus of my own. If you purchase the Parenting Super Bundle through my link this week, I will send you a pdf copy of my *NEW* Homeschool Planner for FREE. 

I will be offering this planner for sale soon at $10, and along with our Student Planner (included in the bundle), these are two planners that help keep our homeschool life in order – and I want to share this newest one with you! This special offer is only available until Monday, August 14th when the bundle sale ends. (Learn more about the new planner HERE). 

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, first purchase the Parenting Bundle, email me {homeschoolcreations@gmail.com} with your receipt, mention this special offer, and I will send you the pdf copy! 

You can even copy and paste this into your email (I’m all about making it easy for you): 

I purchased the Parenting Bundle through your link, my receipt/invoice # is below. Please send me the NEW Homeschool Planner you mentioned in your newsletter. 

I can’t wait to share this planner with you – and I know too that you will enjoy the Parenting Super Bundle. There are so many resources to love and use in the months and years to come.

Get yours now: https://us154.isrefer.com/go/PARSB2017/a258/

Just don’t wait too long. It’s only on sale for another SIX days and the free e-Reader upgrade ends on Thursday, August 9th at midnight. 



P.S. Remember to buy the Parenting Super Bundle before it expires on Monday, August 14th, at 11:59 PM EST!


When Procrastination Pays Off – Back to School Sale!

Sometimes procrastinating (a.k.a. forgetting to order) a piece of curriculum pays off. In this case, there is one program, Visual Latin 2, that has been in my virtual cart for several weeks. 

I keep getting distracted (there may be too many tabs open on my laptop. Cough). 

Anyway, a lovely email landed in my inbox to let me know that Compass Classroom will be having a back to school sale and up to 50% off their most popular curriculum!! We LOVED using their WordUp Vocabulary a few years ago and also Visual Latin 1 for our high school age kids. 

If you – like me – forgot that one last thing, don’t miss this great chance to grab what you need from Compass Classroom and finish up your shopping! The sale runs August 2 – August 9 with no code needed. 

Spin a Story StoryBuilders – Free Printable


WriteShop is a writing program our family has been using for years and currently they have a FUN freebie for their subscribers: Spin a Story StoryBuilders

I’ll tell you something I love about their StoryBuilders: we used a freebie like this many years ago (after nearly killing our girls’ joy for writing with another program) and it is what kick-started our girls back into creative writing and ENJOYING the writing process. One of them even wrote her own short book based on the StoryBuilder prompts. 

It was something simple, but made a HUGE change for our girls, and for that I am so very thankful. 


This freebie includes 4 printable story prompt spinners in both full color and grayscale options (8 spinners total) plus directions.

  • Exciting Adventures Spinner
  • Animal Adventures Spinner
  • Fantasy & Fairy Tales Spinner
  • Historical Adventures Spinner

Children will spin to choose CHARACTER, SETTING, and a SITUATION. Once the three elements are chosen, it’s up to them to create the whole story!

Spinners may be used by students of various ages. Though they are designed for grades 3-8, younger children and even teens can enjoy them too. This freebie is a special gift for subscribers of the WriteShop site (and you’ll get other great tips and freebies along the way!).
