Summer’s just begun, but for many the planning for back to school has already started. Home schooling doesn’t have to be expensive, I know I have probably spent under £30 total over the past year, and that includes a science kit that won’t be used for a while yet. Costs may increase as the children grow, but there are definitely ways in which you can keep those costs under control. In fact, teaching your children to be thrifty and resourceful will also help them as they grow into responsible adults. This week I’m featuring 32 helpful hints from home schooling Moms for you to keep in mind as you’re planning this year’s curriculum.
This week’s giveaway is also right on track to helping you plan your year and save money as well!
I’m curious, what is one (or more) ways that you save money on school or home school supplies? Feel free to let us all in on your secrets with a comment.
