Monday we start a new school year (at home), and it just occured to me that there is little to no help for homeschoolers. Most school teachers get a credit card from the school to purchase supplies and contributions from parents for other necessities. There are grants and loans for home childcare businesses, but I just cant seem to find anything for homeschooling parents. For the past two years I've been on a tight budget for supplies; recycling, and sale shopping. I've search the net SOOO many times, but I havent found any helpful resources. Any advise?

Homeschooling parents can get discounts at any store that offers discounts to teachers. Check with your local school system, they may allow you to borrow text books. If there is a local college that has degree programs for teachers they may have huge amounts of materials including text books that you can check out with your drivers' license. There are many resources free online. I homeschooled 3 children and never paid for anything.
You could take college courses. If you go to a community college you may be able to get enough grant money to pay for your classes and have a lot left over.
