I am always on the look out for good stuff to use or teach my children but I usually really start about now looking really hard for the new year. When do you start and what are you looking at for next year?

I'm always on the look for new things, but acquiring depends on price. Around tax season.

I don't look too hard unless I'm unhappy with what we are doing. I may grab up something fun if  Icome across it but I dont usualyl go searching.

I am looking towards next year... I am very happy with what we are doing now but my kids are young... And only in the 3R stage so I need to beef up next year AND tax money will be here in a few weeks so I need to spend while I have it...

I wish I had time to look.....I'd be looking and buying all the time!  :)   I love school supplies and bright shiny learning "stuff"......But I'm a horrible organizer, so I usually buy a boxed curriculum and play with that.

I'm always looking, but am starting to get serious about ordering it and having it in place, ready to go.  We also have one starting high school, so I want my ducks all in a row!

I started "planning" in January. But I have a baby coming in June, and doubt anything will get done over the summer, so I'm trying to be ready before baby comes.

I am going to the Midwest homeschool convention (April I think) and I can't wait. :) I went last year too!
