Local library. I get most of my stuff through our local library and inter-library loans.

What ages/grades are your kids?

Ahhh, the hardest part of HS, the curricula. There are many,MANY choices out there. The cheapest being to build your own based on free scope & sequence lists. I HS my 2 boys and spend less than $100/year on both. I really only pay for Reading Eggs and TeacherVision.fen otherwise we get really awesome apps for less than$5 each and we go from there. We love lapbooking instead of worksheets, as they are more visually stimulating and fun.

we recently started homeschooling again (long story).  We are a single family income and do not have the extra money to spend on cirriculums.  I did (and still do) searches for whatever area I am planning on teaching.  I have bookmarks seperated into classes (science, reading, writing, math, History, Sign Language and misc.) This way when I want something, I just go to that section and look for something. I did pay for a subscription to Christian Hub (think that is the name), they have a ton of print outs.  It is amazing how much you can find on the internet for free.  And there is this site

that has where you can build your own lessons. 

I was told once that you can make homeschooling as cheap or as expensive as you would like. I am finding that I actually might be doing an okay job on the free stuff.  Hope this helps.

My favorite resources are the library, Amazon, and ebay.  Paperback swap is really great as well.  I have received a lot really nice books on there.  Good luck

Right now I'm homeschooling my children, they are 2 and 3 years old. During the younger years of homeschooling you can make your own. I make papers for my children to do. if you are intrested in any of my papers (just getting started on the website) you can visit  (if its not showing as a link please copy and paste, as I am just getting started on here). I also use my girls love that site. Check out my blog and see if the papers I have loaded there will help you.

Here are a few.  When I first began many yrs ago my oldest was 13 (I see yours is 14).  I started with all ABeka.  It is very affordable if you just get the books and not all of their tests, dvd's or stuff. I never used any of that. 

ABeka  I like ABeka a lot.
Sonlight (one of my favorites) 
Beautiful Feet:  I have used their history for the younger grades and geography. Liked them J

Hi moms! My son has been working in ace pace's 1000-1009 and we have been loving them. My question now that I have pulled him out of his private school mid year is how do I order inexpensive books and find the next one after 1009? I find that is goes by pace 1-9 not 1000 to 1009 and so on. I found inexpensive books on heartland education ministries but I am not familiar with the sight. Oh and he is in 1st grade. Any other moms buy books on there? Any help is greatly appreciated.
