Stretching Your Homeschool Dollar

Most homeschool families are one income and stretching the limited budget for homeschooling becomes something of an art over the years. Here are some suggestions for your consideration.  

Used Sites- The online world has revolutionized the homeschool market in more than one way. From Craigslist to eBay, sellers are connecting with buyers in a variety of fashions. Here are some sites that specialize in selling used homeschool curriculum.

Exodusbooks.com/used-books.aspx 

Vegsource.com/homeschool  

HSLDA's Curriculum Market 

Online support groups- Often a community yahoo or facebook group will allow members to list and sell their used books. Prospective buyers can also list their needs and requests to a greater group this way. Buying local keeps the shipping costs to a minimum.

The Library-  Many libraries have a process in which new books can be requested for purchase and added to their stacks.  Check with your local library to learn the procedure for this and make a request for something you will need in the upcoming year.

Ask- This seems pretty basic and since homeschooling families are some of the most generous people around it works. Those of us who have been homeschooling a long time have shelves full of things we won't use this year. These extra books can become a lending library of sorts.  Let the veterans you know that you have a need and they might be able to loan the book their son used last year. Remember to ask nicely and return books promptly and in good condition.

Ever since the grand success of Mass Effect 3, BioWare and EA were looking to make the next edition even more extravagant and now they are finally ready with
Mass Effect 4 Andromeda. But instead of naming it Mass Effect 4,
they have added the name of a famous galaxy which says a lot about what to expect from this game.
If you are a hardcore gamer then this game is surely going to interest you. For more info, you can take a look http://massefect4andromeda.com/
