Simple Homestead blog hop #139

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! Every week we get together for another linky party, and I'm always glad to see you. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

Have fun exploring all the great ideas that have been shared. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

This Week

I'm really excited that my own e-book, Make Your Own Vinegar for Pennies, is included in the 
2018 Back to Basics Living Bundle! 

In addition, you can join the FREE 5-Day Back To Basics Living Challenge.  This challenge is for you, whether you’re a seasoned homesteader living off-grid, have a little land, live in the suburbs or live in the city. If you’re feeling the weight of technology, debt, the broken medical system or our messed up food supply. You can find out more and sign up here.

If living a simple, handmade life is your goal, you'll want to take a look at this collection of 59 digital resources, including my own 12-page e-book. This year's bundle includes topics such as cooking from scratch, frugal living, DIY, homesteading and so very much more. The bundle is on sale for 92% off what you'd pay if you bought them all individually, but it's only on sale for one week. The special ends January 23rd. There's even a 30-day money back guarantee.

    Greetings from Carolina! I'm bored at work so I decided to browse
    your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I enjoy the info you provide here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
    I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone
    .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing site!

  3. Thanks for a great party! Have an awesome weekend.
