Do you keep for the next kid? Sell it? Junk it?
keep them and sell what i dont need
All our curriculum is being passed down to our grandchildren that are now being educated at home. My youngest at home is now 13 (almost 14) and our grandbabies are (25 of them) are ages 12 (almost) down to newborn (and 2 more that are on the way bringing the count to 27).
Keep them for the next child.
If I do not need them for my younger son, then I LOVE to help other homeschoolers out. I have been a part of a couple of curriculum swaps that made me feel really good about being helpful. And I have loaned things to others. When I first strated homeschooling 2 other moms were very generous and loaned me mass amount of books to get me started, and so that idea really stuck with me.
The things I have sold were math and science stuff that would loose value if I held onto them.
We have 2 options. A church near us does a big homeschool convention during the summer, and part of it is a book baazzar where people can register and sell their old things (or give them away if they prefer) and the second is our homeschool group, they have a book swap at the end of the year. For now though, we will be saving them for the youngest, who is almost 4.
I sell them on homeschoolclassifieds.com. It is an excellent site for buying and selling books.
I keep them for my next daughter, unless its outdated then it goes to Goodwill
