This might be because for most of my life, I've been poor and didn't have any extra cash to spend on stuff, especially on things that weren't strictly necessary.
So I never understood the hype of Black Friday or Cyber Monday, or at least I judged it to be a terrible marketing ploy of big corporations wanting to stuff their own pockets.
And even when I didn't have much money to spend, I have always been drawn to supporting small, local businesses instead of big companies.
Now, we are a small business ourselves.
We hosts retreats at our homestead, teaching people homesteading and wilderness skills.
We teach individual courses at our homestead.
We have online Etsy stores, selling our handmade goat milk soaps, handspun yarn, knitted accessories, cheese presses, and traditional wooden bows.
If you are like me and hate shopping, want to support small Mom and Pop businesses, and are getting antsy about buying Christmas presents for people, I want to give you an opportunity to spend your hard-earned dollars with us, Marblemount Homestead.
We offer a 15% discount on all our online courses, as well as a 15% discount on purchasing our handmade wares in our Etsy store.

Our online courses are fun and entertaining, and self-paced, so you can start whenever you like and take as much or as little time as you want.
You get my movies (me in the kitchen and garden, oh my!) and e-books, and you can download them and keep them forever, watch and read as many times as you want.
And best of all, you get to interact with me LIVE, ask as many questions as you want, and have me hold your hand.
These courses make GREAT presents for people who are interested in healthy living!
