freebie fridayHappy Freebie Friday, everyone! As always, we would like to thank Couponing 101 for assisting us with our freebies each week for loads of deals, savings, and freebies!

This week on MomAdvice we discussed our m challenge book for January, Wheat Belly, I republished our fruit-infused water recipes which are a great way to ditch the juice boxes, and we introduced our special m challenge Notebook Syllabus where you can find all the articles we’ve published for the challenge as well as other links to inspire and inform! In addition, Shaina shared with us a recipe for French King’s Cake, which would make a fun for a family tradition, and I had the privilege of interviewing author Karen Joy Fowler about We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves for our first Sundays With Writers of 2015.

This week on MomAdvice we showcased not one, but two amazing guest post transformations in honor of our m challenge focus on health – Renee shares how she lost weight and keeps it off, and Ashley gives us ideas on incorporating healthy back into our lives! I’m focusing on the fridge and giving it a healthy makeover, along with a great no-bake energy bite recipe for the challenge. And then, in honor of the amazing Ultimate DIY Bundle available only through Sunday, I’m giving you a glimpse into how I went from a girl who thought she couldn’t make anything into a glue-gun-loving diy-er – and if I can, anyone can! And I hope you’ll check out this week’s edition of It’s the 3 Little Things to get your weekly dose of happy.

You can find lots of inspiring DIY, food, decorating and craft ideas in our popular Notebook, and be sure to check out all the contests you can enter on our weekly round-up of great giveaways, too.

Note: I want to lead off this week’s freebies by reminding you that although The Ultimate DIY Bundle I mentioned above costs money, it’s like getting over $1,100 worth of FREEBIES. For example: take one eCourse like the photography 101 ($60+ value) after purchasing the bundle at $34.95 (and that’s like a 50% sale) and all other 75 eBooks & eCourses are FREE. Not to mention the actual freebie bonuses like beautiful prints, cards, magazines and craft classes! Click here to learn more or buy.
