A really honest look at the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle (Is it worth it for ME? Maybe.)

on May 1, 2019 by Jami Balmet 1 comment

This is my FOURTH year in a row doing this in depth review of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. I’ve shared my raw and honest opinion each year (and have honestly told you what I thought each time)! I will do that again today because I don’t think the bundle is right for each and every person. BUT there are a few changes to note this year….

In January 2019 I actually joined the team at Ultimate Bundles as their affiliate and partnerships manager and I have actually heavily been involved in the formation of the 2019 bundle πŸ™Œ In fact, I hand selected all 11 bonuses this year for the bundle and I have to say…they rock!! My affiliation with UB doesn’t in any way impact my true and honest review you will see below. Except that I actually had a lot of input in the bundle this year so I think it’s AWESOME LOL!! 

I do think the bundle is 100% worth it this year AND I’m offering my brand new 1 day conference for FREE to anyone who purchases the bundle this week (registration is normally $19)! 

But hurry! The bundle is only on sale for a few more days until Monday May 6th!

The 7th annual Ultimate Homemaking Bundle launched this week – and it’s everywhere. I have been a part of every bundle since the beginning and I’m excited to share the things that are different and exciting this year. 

For the 2019 bundle – I think it is 100% worth it. Of course, it won’t be a perfect fit for everyone. But I am excited about several of the items inside the bundle this year. 

So sit tight – we are going to go through a full review of the 2019 bundle so you can decide if it’s worth it or not! 

Quick facts: 

The bundle is one sale this week, May 1-6th. After the 6th, you won’t be able to buy it. So if you are interested in the bundle, get it this week (PLUS I have a very sweet bonus for you – see below)! 

The bundle contains over $2600 worth of resources…for just $29.97. So if you are interested in just a few of the resources, it’s WELL worth it!! πŸ™‚ (see below for my favorite picks)

Along with eCourses, eBooks, printable packs and more…you will also get several BONUS items mailed to you including Scripture art prints, organic eyeshadow and more! 

The bundle is OVER very soon: So jump over and get your bundle here.

Today I’m going to give you an in depth view of what’s inside the bundle so you can decide for yourself if it’s worth it! 

Let’s get one small thing straight first: I AM sharing my affiliate link with you in this article. IF you decide to purchase the bundle through my link, I DO earn a percentage of the purchase price. However, please know, this article is my real and honest opinion. I do NOT think the bundle is right for everyone. However, some of you are going to buy the bundle and love it. So I’m including my affiliate link in case you decide to buy it. 

If you decide the bundle isn’t right for you and you move on with your day, yay! I’m glad I could provide some information. Despite my affiliate link in this article, my only desire today is to give you the information so you can make an informed decision that’s right for you. I don’t want you to get caught up in the fact that this deal is only around for 2 days. Make the decision that’s right for you.

Got it? Okay moving on…

So, is the bundle worth it?

I think it’s an amazing offer this year, so I think it’s worth it for MOST people! But I’ll give you some questions to think through to help you decide. 

My super special bonus just for you! 

Here’s why I am SO excited for the bundle this year! I have the most amazing free bonus for you!! Everyone who purchase the 2019 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle through my links here will get my brand new one day conference for FREE!! 

Join me on May 31st for an amazing brand new mini conference: Refresh Your Routines 1 Day Conference presented by the 2019 Homemaking Ministries Online Conference! 

This amazing brand new 1 day mini conference will be like a smaller version of our epic big fall conference! So for those of you wishing we had two conferences a year (which we get requests for all the time), this is your chance to hang out together and learn about effective (but simple) routines. 

It’s going to be an amazing 1 day event! You can register for the conference separately if you want for $19. Or if you purchase the 2019 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle for just $29.97 you will get all the amazing resources included in this year’s bundle AND you will get free access to my brand new 1 day conference!! 

Once you get your ticket, just forward me your receipt to Jami@youngwifesguide.com and I will get you all registered for the one day conference for FREE (worth $19)! 

First, what IS the bundle?

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is a collection of ebooks, printables, courses, and bonuses. They do a new bundle each Spring, and each bundle is unique and different. They won’t offer this same exact bundle next year so if there are some specific resources you love, BUY it now. (But I’ll share more about that later on…)

Here are the categories and topics included in the 2019 bundle: 

  • Marriage 
  • Kitchen
  • Parenting
  • Homeschool
  • Self Care
  • Faith (this is the category that my product is in. My hospitality course is normally $34.95 on it’s own!!)
  • Organization
  • Home Management
  • Decor & Creativity
  • Work From Home 
  • For Kids

The single category I am the most excited about this year is the FAITH one. It contains some stellar looking resources. But there are several ones I’m interested in self-care and anything to do with the kitchen πŸ˜‰ 

And it IS important to note that the bundle is only available for a few days, until Monday May 6th!  

Okay got that straight? (One big bundle of 104 homemaking resources that are normally almost $2600…for $29.97). So, is the bundle right for YOU? Let’s try and figure that out.

5 questions to ask yourself

Are you living in survival mode?

This is the first thing I want need to address. Let’s get real with each other for a minute: Are you struggling? Are you just barely getting through your day?

Are you in a season of newborns? Of working outside the home (or inside the home!)? Are you homeschooling? Are you desperately trying to figure out how in the world you are just going to make it to the end of the week?

I have so been there. Having five kids un four years will do that to you! Might I suggest something if you are living in survival mode? Just ignore this bundle. Let it go. Unless something like this would be FUN and ENJOYABLE to you to go through and might give you a little hobby to enjoy…just let it go.

There will be other years, there will be other bundles, there will be other resources that might be more manageable during this season.

Verdict: This bundle may NOT be right for you. Move on in peace πŸ™‚

Do you suffer from FOMO? (Fear of Missing Out)

See that FB post from above? In my book club Facebook group 3 years ago, some of the gals had questions about the bundle (which is what ultimately inspired this post) and I was sharing that I don’t necessarily think the bundle is for everyone.

Mia said something that hit the nail on the head. You see, we don’t like to miss out on amazing deals. We may see this bundle and know that the $30 price tag is pretty incredible for what is inside – but like we said above, maybe it’s not the right season or the right time for you.

If you are only being driven by the fact that this is a very limited time offer, you might be motivated for the wrong reasons. You might not have time right now to even pick up one or two of these resources. That’s fine, move along and don’t worry about it πŸ™‚

Verdict:  This bundle may or may not be for you. It depends largely on the next question. (But keep this motivation in mind)

Do you see something SPECIFIC you like?

Okay this is where it gets down to the heart of the bundle: When you go look through the different resources, is there something or several things you are interested in?

You see – Mia from my example above – said she doesn’t have time to read all the eBooks in the bundle (I mean, who does right??). But she did say she would really like some of the books so maybe she should look into purchasing them separately. So I was curious what that would be just to purchase one of the categories separately. 

So I calculated the normal price for all the resources in the faith category (my personal favorite) – and you guys – it came out to $212.82!!!!! If you went to Amazon or the author’s websites and purchased each of those resources on their own, it would be over $200! (This includes Biblical hospitality eCourse (normally $34.95)!! 

So my advice to Mia was, depending on how many she was interested in, it might totally be worth it for her to purchase the bundle – even if she ONLY cares about one category.

So head over and go check out all the resources in the bundle – if only four or five resources really stick out to you – it is probably still worth it. If you don’t see much that really interests you or sticks out, then feel free to move on knowing the bundle isn’t right for you!

Verdict: If there are a few specific books that look good to you (or an entire section like the recipes or self-care) – then the bundle is probably a good deal for you! If you don’t really see anything that grabs you – then move on and don’t worry about this year’s bundle.

Do you HATE reading eBooks?

Then I’ll make this simple: You might not like the bundle. Now this one gets a little tricky though. (Especially because this year there are a TON of courses in the bundle and their main teaching is through video. This is my FAVORITE!! Plus tons of great printables)

You see – I’m a paperback girl all the way. I would choose a physical book over a digital book any day of the week – unless of course the price was significantly cheaper. But I’ve been purchasing Kindle books more and more lately just based upon the price. (And I think I’m actually warming up to digital books more!)

If you love reading eBooks (you love how easy and convenient it is to carry around tons of books at once), that you can easily read while you are nursing, etc then of course, you will simply love this bundle! I mean, go order it right now (but you probably already did).

But if you are like me, then you really need to think about this one. Will you purchase this bundle and then never ever make the effort to get the books out? Will they sit on your computer, never to be touched?

SIDE NOTE: Even if you don’t prefer eBooks, this year there are a TON of printable resources, eCourses and bonus items. Even if you don’t crack open a single eBook, I think the other items are STILL worth the $29.97 price tag…just something to think about! I tend to do a LOT more with all the other resources included, not just the eBooks. 

This is where you need to have a heart to heart with yourself. Can you commit to trying it out this year and using them? In our FB group we were having that discussion. Someone said that they purchased the bundle this year and that she made a spreadsheet because she wants to be able to track all the books (so smart!) and that if she doesn’t use the bundle well this year then she will know NOT to purchase it next year.

Then I love this:

See? God has hard wired us all so differently! What a beautiful thing! Some of you may purchase this and never do a thing with it. Others like Chantel, are so in love with the bundles she gets it every single year! How fun!!

So take a quick step back, and ask yourself: How realistic is it that you will use a few of the resources and then commit to putting them to good use! And don’t worry – I’ll be back later this week sharing my favorite products to help you put it into action! 

P.s. Please don’t get overwhelmed at this step. The bundle isn’t intended to be used 100%. You are not meant to go through all 100-something resources. If there are 3-10 resources that really hit home with you – then the bundle is totally worth it! 

Verdict: If you think you will be able to put the resources to good use – by all means, go get your bundle! However, if you know yourself and that you will never ever dig into the courses, printables, or ebooks – then move on, it’s not right for you!

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 10.22.24 PM

Like Kasi? She’s got the right attitude! If you DO end up getting the bundle, commit to making good use of it. Just reading that makes me motivated to go dig into all the resources πŸ˜‰

Did you see the bonuses? 

I honestly think this is the COOLEST part of the bundle this year. As I mentioned above, I’ve been working with the Ultimate Bundles teams this year helping them to design their promotions. And I am in charge of gathering the bonuses. And guess what? I think I put together an AMAZING list!! 😍

I 100% think the bundle this year is worth the price if only for the bonuses. We have 11 bonuses this year, 6 of which are physical bonuses that the company will mail to you (all you have to do is pay shipping)!!

The Bottom Line?

Okay, if you don’t want to read allll the way through this long post, or just want a summary, what’s the bottom line? For some people, the bundle isn’t right. If you are really tight on money, if you hate reading eBooks, if the format and amount overwhelms you so you won’t ever read them, if you are more of an auditory learner (but the eCourses don’t appeal to you), etc….then the bundle probably isn’t right for you.

That’s fine! Move on with your day, there are always more homemaking resources out there. This isn’t going to ruin your life if you miss out on this bundle. If you don’t have $30 to spare, then don’t fret over it! There are plenty of other amazing resources out there for you and I’ll make sure to pass them along when I find them πŸ™‚

However…

If you do like reading eBooks, or need some more digital resources, or love taking courses and listening to audio sessions, then this bundle is totally worth it! I wanted to be very open and honest in this article with the pros and cons, but if after reading this, you are still excited…then I think the bundle is actually probably right for you!

(And to be honest – this is the most definitive I’ve ever been that the bundle is 100% worth it for most people!) 

My personal verdict: It’s a winner for me this year! 

I always give my honest opinion on products around here – But the combination of printables, eBook, eCourses, and the bonuses has made the 2019 bundle a total no-brainer for me! I’ve got my copy and think it’s 100% worth it this year! (But that’s just my personal opinion)!
