Paying for schooling on our own means most homeschool parents are always looking out for a deal.

Here are some of my favorite sources when I’m looking for used curriculum:

www.HomeSchoolClassifieds.com

This is a great overall homeschool resource, but I especially love the classifieds section.  You’ll find TONS of curriculum listed for very reasonable rates, usually cheaper than ebay.  If you see ‘ppd’ next to the cost, that means shipping is included.  It is also free to post up to 7 of your own items at a time.  There is a tiny ($5) yearly charge if you’re going to post more than 7 at a time.  I have received all my items very quickly and in good shape.  I haven’t had a single bad experience buying through their site.

www.Ebay.com

You can find almost anything listed on ebay these days, and that includes used homeschool curriculum.  A helpful features you may not know about:

  • Favorite searches:  If you search for something and can’t find one being sold right now on Ebay, you can click on “Save this Search” right next to the line that shows the number of items found in your search.  Then you can choose to get an email any time a new item that fits your search is posted on Ebay.  This helps a lot when you’re looking for a specific book or homeschool item that is hard to find.

Homeschool Co-op Curriculum Sales

Call your local homeschool co-ops to find out if they have an annual curriculum sale.  It is usually close to the beginning or end of the typical school year and provides a great chance to clear out your shelves while picking up on some bargains (with no shipping costs) yourself.

Your favorite source?

Do you have a favorite source for good deals on homeschool supplies?  Please share them with us in the comments section.  It would be helpful if you could post the link, pros and cons of the source, and your experience with using it.  Thanks!
