So… unless you have goats, you probably won’t be interested in the first e-book I ever wrote. How to Draw Blood from Your Goats was written back in our homesteading days when we owned dairy goats and it’s currently available in my affiliate partners Bill and Jennifer Osuch’s Back to Basics Living Bundle.

As an author/contributor, I was given the opportunity to review the bundle ahead of time, and to be completely honest with you, I didn’t find much that was strictly GAPS related.

However, I didn’t want to make the decision to say nothing, just in case you are interested in any of the following topics:

  • Cooking From Scratch
  • Do It Yourself
  • Food Storage
  • Frugal Living
  • Gardening
  • Homesteading
  • Natural Parenting
  • Natural Remedies
  • Preparedness
  • Simple Living

I did find these that piqued my interest (valued at over $32):

  • 10 Minute Prep Freezer Meals (Paleo) by Shanti Landon $7.99
  • O’Lardy Guide to Fermenting Fruits and Vegetables By Tamara Mannelly and Kelly Liston $9.99
  • How to Become a Better Home Cook by Lindsay Moe $9
  • Garden Therapy Coloring Book by Stephanie Rose $4.99 (stress relief)
  • Herbal Teas for Winter Health by Carol Little (exclusive to this bundle)
  • How to Make Healing Herbal Oils by Kami McBride (exclusive to this bundle)

I seldom use every product from any bundle but what I do is skim the sales page to see what’s inside to decide if it’s worth buying. If I don’t see anything, then I pass. However, if I see 5 or 6 products that I like, typically those few products end up being worth more than $29.97, which makes it worth investing in the bundle.

I always download the whole zipped bundle (even though initially I only wanted a few products), because you never know, you might end up wanting one of the products eventually. More than once I have found an e-book that I want and think, “Hey, did I get that in such and such bundle already?” And then I find it. Whoot!

Money Back Guarantee

If you purchase the bundle and find out you don’t like the products or can’t use them, Back to Basics has a 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee.


My favorite – The Bonus Offers

I’ll let you in on a secret… very often I buy a bundle JUST to get the bonus offers.

Two things I love about the bonus offers. 1) Most of the time the companies are small business owners, “mom and pop shops”. 2) The bonuses are often related to real food and natural healthy lifestyles.

It is a great way to find new small businesses to buy from and help support!

The first is the $10 off coupon from my friend and affiliate partner Renee Harris who owns MadeOn Natural Skin Care Products. Most of her products contain less than 5 ingredients (all natural & pronounceable!). I LOVE goat milk soap (when we had our dairy goats my husband and son made goat milk soap that’s when I fell in love with it!) and I adore my MadeOn Vanilla Dust Lip Balm.

And here’s some super secret insider information shared with permission: Renee has a special coupon code for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. When your cart hits $35, apply coupon code MLK2017 to get free shipping. This is good today and tomorrow only (Monday 1/16 and Tuesday 1/17) and can be used in conjunction with your $10 bundle bonus coupon. So after you buy your bundle, grab your MadeOn coupon code and go shopping! 🙂

The other bonus I’m excited to tell you about is the Strawesome glass straws. I bought the starter set last year and they are so cool! Strawesome is also offering a $10 coupon code.

There are 12 bonus offers in all, so take a look and see what you think.

The products in this bundle (73 resources & 12 bonus offers) have a combined value of over $814 but you can GET THEM ALL for just $29.97. This is a savings of 96% off the regular price, so take a look!

The Back to Basics Living Bundle will be available until Sunday, January 22nd at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.
