 For you vetern homeschooler, or accountants.. Is homeschooling a tax deduction? Not only curriculums but Ive bought school supplies, book shelves, storage bins ect. Just wondering how much can I count if any.

On a side note for those wondering the same thing. I found if you take in 1 child for childcare purposes and make ANY money from it (even if they only paid $50 a week) you can count all toys, furniture, cleaning supplies, water, electricity, food and all for tax purposes. I have a friend that is a home provider for 4 children. Her husband makes about $70,000 a yr and she charges about $60wk per child. She said she is able to spend down her income to almost 0 because of tax deductions!!! Just a thought for anyone else thinking this.

today I can say I just sat back and was greatful for having the greatest kids I could ask for. I am going to worry less and love a little more. I am going to stop counting the minutes till bed time and start counting the minutes till good night kisses. I am going to stop crying and start laughing. I know together this family can move mountains one rock at a time

They look like this...

You can cut them off of tons of foods. We have three baggies full right now. Cereal, Hamburger Helper, Kleenex, Progresso soup (I'm getting two on every can right now). Here is the list of participating products. You earn $0.10 for every Box Top you send in. It's pretty cool!

 BOX TOPS: i looked it up and you can NOT send box tops for your homeschool. Here is the quote from their official rules page "It is also available to home school associations, containing any class with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade, in the United States organized and operated primarily for educational purposes and have 15 or more students." 

But if you have a group of friends (or coop) to reach 15 kids then you could easily send them in as a group. I am not in a COOP right now, but could round up 15 kids! I will try!
