Do you want to be more organized? Do you feel that you are pulled in dozens of directions at once? Are you struggling to keep up with everything? Do you want to find systems that actually work for your home and family?
Me, me, me, me!
Let me give you a glance in my life right now. I have a 4 week old baby girl who wants to be held lots, a just turned 2 and increasing stubborn little girl, and a newly turned 4 year old who is independent and determined. I am definitely still adjusting to life as a mom of three little ones. I am a mom and wife, piano teacher and blogger.
Some days the laundry gets done while some days the dishes sit. Some days naps happen for everyone in the house while other days Emma wakes up as soon as Lily falls asleep. Some days I am incredibly productive and other days I struggle to find time to put in my contacts, much less find time for my work at home responsibilities.
I love my children and I love being a stay at home mom. That said, I’ve had my share of tears and emotional moments these past four weeks as I figure out (again) how to balance life as a mom, wife, blogger, piano teacher, and homemaker. I’ve had some overwhelming days but feel like I’m starting to figure some things out and get organized again.

How and why? It’s simple. I am getting organized with my bullet journal.
(Yes, this is an old bullet journal picture because I am holding the baby right now as I type, and am unable to snap a new picture. #multitaskingatitsfinest)
Some of you may have heard me talk about my bullet journal before but my bullet journal has become the single most important tool to me as a homemaker. (If you are unfamiliar with bullet journals, it is basically a completely customized personal planner that you create page by page.)
My bullet journal is where I keep my daily to do lists, my project lists, my lists of clothing sizes for the kids and dozens of other lists that keep me from forgetting everything.
Let’s be honest. Moms have enough on our minds that it is impossible to remember everything we need to remember. Enter the bullet journal.
When I have a place to write everything down – and I do it – somehow my life instantly becomes more organized and motivated. It’s almost magic…almost! 🙂
I was overwhelmed when I started my bullet journal. I’m a perfectionist and didn’t want to get it wrong. It took me a long time to figure everything out but once I did, I was hooked. Then, I found the Brainbook. The Brainbook is the book I wished I had when I started bullet journaling. This is the ultimate bullet journal guide!
The Brainbook tells you what supplies to use, how to set up your first pages and gives you pages and pages of ideas for layouts to include in your bullet journal.
If you want to get more organized, give bullet journaling a try. And you’re in luck, because I am excited to say that the Brainbook is included in the 2018 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle!
What is a Homemaking Bundle, you ask? Excellent question. It’s a collection of 129 ebooks available for purchase as a set. The books cover topics such as organization, faith, recipes, diy, holidays, parenting, household help, marriage, budgeting, finances, and working at home. The books are written by wives and mothers (and some bloggers) who understand how challenging homemaking today is.
The 129 ebooks and courses are valued at over $3000, but for 6 days only, you can purchase them for $30! Yes, it’s still an investment, but it’s an investment I’d urge you to consider. Here’s why.
Being a homemaker is a challenge. Women today are pulled in countless directions. We have jobs to juggle, kids to raise, meals to cook, house to maintain, spouses to love, and ourselves to care for, too! These books will give you ideas and resources on how to do all of the above – and so much more!
I had an opportunity to purchase this Homemaking Bundle ahead of time and am truly loving these ebooks. I’ve found my reading material for the rest of the year! Not only are the ebooks encouraging and helpful for many different situations, but many of them are written from a Christian perspective by Christian wives and moms. I am very thankful for that.
Here’s some facts on the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle 2018.
This year, there are 129 products included – 62 eBooks, 34 printable packs, 3 membership sites and 30 eCourses. It also includes 441 recipes and 3100 printables. This bundle is valued at $3,686.47 but is currently selling for $29.97.
Here’s the catch because with a deal this good, there is a catch. This bundle is only available from Wednesday, April 11 to Monday, April 16, 2018.
Honestly? There is actually too much information included in this bundle. Will I read all the ebooks and work through all the courses? Most definitely not. I am still gaining plenty of resources to help me be more motivated about homemaking again.
Let me show you some of the books and courses I am most excited about in this bundle. I had the opportunity to buy this bundle the other week and have been loving all the real life encouragement I am receiving.

Here’s the thing. The Brainbook alone is worth the price of the bundle. Everything else? In my frugal and humble opinion, totally worth the $29.97.
But I want you to be responsible with your finances. Go read through the list of all the products included in the bundle here. Make a note of the ones you’re most interested in. If those books and courses add up to more than $30, you can be confident you’re getting a good investment.
I did the same and realized these courses and books I wanted to read added up to way more than the $30. All the other resources? Icing on the cake for this homemaker.
If you have any questions about the Brainbook or Homemaking Bundle, ask in the comments! Otherwise, remember that it’s only available this week for purchase. You can see everything included in the 2018 Homemaking Bundle here. I hope you find it as encouraging as I did. And remember, the bundle is only available through April 16 at midnight. After that, these books won’t be sold as a collection again.
Now, I’m going back to spend some time with my bullet journal, making more lists and getting more organized!
