I have a literature based curriculum, so I put everything up to 6th Grade on my Paperback swap list at the beginning of DD1's K year.  I also keep a list of these books in my purse for spontaneous yard, garage and library sale shopping, so I get most very cheaply.  I use many free e-books ( gutenberg.org) and audiobooks (librivox.org). I use a free printable math program (MEP).  Homeschoolclassifieds.com for anything I couldn't find elsewhere.

 I buy second-hand school-books and then write my own curriculum for the kids.  I re-use paper that is messed up for scrap paper for the kids to work out math problems or to spell words or to draw a picture that they are having a difficult time drawing.  I hand-write most of the young kids schoolwork by hand every day and I use both sides of the paper to maximze how nuch paper I really use.  We also buy second hand computers for the older kids to use to "write" the work on and then they copy it to cd so I can check it on my computer. This isn't quite all of what we do to stay on budget(cheap/frugal).  lol  But I think this is enough for now.  :)
