This is going to be a long post – in my effort to help you! You’ll find a general explanation, PDF printables to download, an Excel spreadsheet I made to help you, my favorites, what I bought and another PDF showing what I bought in a visual format.

My Purchases

I own many of those featured above, and bought the rest this year! Here’s a screenshot of my spreadsheet showing my purchases and how I decided on the best savings for me.

BYB 2018 Purchases[3]

After doing the math, I figured out that doing a Buy 2, Get 1 Free of the Build Your Own Bundles was the best option. I had a few products that I wanted which were over the $19.99 mark so I chose to do one BYO Premium of 5 for $39, one BYO Basic of 10 for $39, and got my final BYO Basic of 10 for FREE!
