Blogging about coupons, discounts, freebies, sales, and more!

PennyRaine.com

I recently mentioned that I follow the blog of Penny Raine and enjoy her eBook collection, Creatively Simple.  She sent out a newsletter today announcing the arrival of 4 new eBooks.  These eBooks are “Best of” compilations from her newsletters and they do qualify for the 50% discount announced earlier this week.

In addition, she occasionally posts a FREEBIE on her web-site.  She has one there now and the title is 101 Ways to Save Money: Study Guide.  I downloaded it earlier today, but haven’t had a chance to take a look at it yet.  Since this blog is dedicated to frugal living, I thought you’d want to know about 101 ways to save money!  🙂

[Edited to add]  DUH!  It’s a good thing I usually double-check my published posts!  I forgot the link for Penny’s FREEBIE!  Here it is…PennyRaine.com.

Homeschool Freebie of the Day – Friday

In the midst of the technical difficulties, I was unable to send a reminder yesterday about Homeschool Freebie of the Day.  As I mentioned earlier this week, they divided The Big Handbook of Nature Studies into 6 files and spread them out through the week.  I suspected that they’d leave the links up so that folks who heard about this late, or who forgot to download everyday, would have a chance to get the whole eBook.  Well, I was right!  They announced today that they will be keeping all 6 links available through the weekend.  So, if you missed anything, you can still get it.  If you didn’t know about it until now, you can still get it all.  🙂

Here’s a rundown for the whole week:

Monday:   Introduction and Teacher’s Guide (Part I) and Bird/Fish Study (Part II)

Tuesday:   Reptiles, Amphibians, & Mammals (Part III)

Wednesday:   Insects & Invertebrates (Part IV)

Thursday:    Trees & Plant Life (Part V)

Friday:   Earth, Water, & Sky (Part VI)

Now, that’s an impressive collection of files!  But, on top of that, they posted some extra freebies during the week.  Those extra links are still up too, so I think you’ll have  good chance at downloading those files as well.

This Week @ Family Intel: Summary of “Home Sweet Homework”

Hmmmm!  It almost seems like Family Intel has a videocamera watching our house.  Last week’s summary was particularly applicable to our family.  And it seems this week’s summary just may be too.  Even though we’re homeschoolers and homework is not a huge problem around here (everything we do is home-work–hehe!), I’m pretty sure the studying strategies part will be helpful.

Remember that you must register at Family Intel to see the summaries.  As always, registration is FREE!  🙂

SUMMARY RUN-DOWN:

~This Week~  Home Sweet Homework:  A Parent’s Guide to Stress-Free Homework & Studying Strategies That Work by Sharon Marshall Lockett

~Last Week~  Siblings Without Rivalry by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish

~Next Week~ Helping  Hyperactive Kids by Lynn Horowitz and Cecile Rost

Family Intel now has 43 FREE summaries!  Yay!

Blog Recommendation: PennyRaine.com

One of the bloggers I follow, Penny Raine, has her own line of eBooks called Creatively Simple with a variety of  home-maker-friendly titles .  She also sells other eBooks specifically related to cooking.  Late last year, I purchased a package of her Creatively Simple eBooks for a ridiculously low price.  The eBooks are easy-to-follow basic instructional books with helpful pictures.  One of the titles that I particularly liked and plan to use soon is Creatively Simple:  How to Make Homemade Laundry Soap.  I have already purchased several of the items needed to make the soap and am just waiting for my current supply of eco-friendly laundry soap (purchased in bulk from Costco) to run low.  Other tiles from the series that really caught my attention were How to Make Homemade Bread and How to Make Chocolate Cobbler.  I have been making homemade bread for several months now and have a couple of favorite recipes, but I’m looking forward to trying the recipes in Penny’s eBook.  As for the Chocolate Cobbler recipe, I’m pretty much game for trying anything chocolate at least once.  (OK, maybe not chocolate-covered bugs!)

Penny has special subscriber-only sales.  Check out her store and, if you’re interested in ordering from her, be sure to sign up for her newsletter subscription for all of her great specials!
