It’s Coming Again Soon!

You may remember the awesome Ultimate Homemaking Bundle I participated in last year, many of you grabbed this amazing deal!  This year you are getting plenty of notice, since many mentioned the need to plan ahead for a purchase like this.  The creators honored this request and I get to share the dates with you and MY product that will be included!

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will go on sale  for $29.97 at 8am EST on Wednesday April 23, 2014.  It is only a 6 day sale and once it’s gone, it’s GONE!  The site is all set up to answer FAQ and give many details, just not the actual products included, yet! 

This year You Can Read! will be included, this is a $10 value, 1/3 of the bundle cost! 

You Can Read Sight Word Printables

I have a special surprise for my readers too, if you already have You Can Read, and you purchase this bundle through my link, I will let you choose a different free item from my store! You’ll get more details about that when the sale goes live, but don’t fret, if you’ve already bought You Can Read you’ll get to choose a different freebie from me, IF you come back here and buy through my affiliate link.

Want a peek at another GREAT resource being included this year?  Check out my friend’s blog! Just our two items alone are worth the price of the entire bundle!

By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
    Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept .
