I would be fine if it was not for the Target dollar spot right now LOL! They have so many neat flashcards and booklets. I have looked through them about 10 times and I do it everytime I go in and find something else I want.

No problem with that here.   I was when we first started homeschooling but most of the things I purchased the kids had no interest in so that went away fast!!!  <hugs>

 Nope never have had that problem.  Personally I don't like spending money on it so I research before ever buying certain items.  I also like to get things that I know I can resell if I don't like.  Like certain curriculum's.  We also use workbooks and those I know I can't ever resell b/c they get torn out and used.  Anything else like glue, etc. I just replace when needed.

Yes, I guilty. *hides her stuff* This is the first year I'm putting together the curriculum. I find some that are okay and then later find some that are better. It's annoying some times, but I would rather have what is great for my family over what is okay, and hubby knows it.

 No and YES. I dont buy any books-everything I use is online (lessonpathways) or in my head. I have a few of those cheap books from dollar tree, but they are fillers. BUT supplies-yes oh yes. I have BAGS I have not even gone through. Everything is so DA** cheap right now I cant stop. I spent $38 at staples but after doing the rebates it was $13!!!!!!!!!!!! Then I went back this week and bought 2 5shelf bookshelves for $50 from biglots just to put all this crap on. OH and I went to target..jeez. There 1 section was so great, president flash cards, little alphabet stamps, foam shapes, shape workbook, oh my husband literally dragged me away from it. I am going to try to get a video of all my new junk for my Vlog.
