Used curriculum sale

Last month our area homeschool groups had a used curriculum sale. It’s called Books ‘N More because …well, there’s more than just books there. I was astonished at the low prices and the stuff we found in free boxes.

I’ve decided I’m not buying ANY actual “textbooks” next year. Everything except Math (which I already have books for- Singapore) are going to be learned using real books (and the occasional workbook/worksheet if they want it).
