This past weekend my family and I attended the 30th annual Home Educators Association of Virginia Convention. This is our state homeschool convention and it is one of the oldest in the country. One of my favorite parts of the convention is the HUGE used curriculum sale.
I don’t generally do a lot of traditional curriculum, but we use a lot of living books in our daily learning. My favorite place in the world to pick up great books is the thrift store. I have found so many great classics between The Good Will and the Salvation Army. My next favorite place though is this used curriculum sale. I took my “used book cash envelope” with my cash savings for used book purchases and shopped guilt free!
Here are three of my favorites that I snagged for under $7!
For Instruction in Righteousness: A Topical Reference Guide for Biblical Child-Training this book is valued at $36.00. I picked it up for $5! You can also find it on the Doorposts site.
Monarch Butterflies: Mysterious Travelers – I picked up a copy for us for $1. We’ve checked this book out of the library several times.
Here are several of the chapter books that I picked up. I paid $0.75 for most, up to $1.50 for a few. The Princess Treasury book was Naomi’s pick. She found that for $1.00!
My list of chapter books
I picked up more books than these listed. You can see that we collected a stroller full! I shared the picture of my busting full box on Instagram. <<– that’s a hint. You can follow me on Instagram. I’ll share with you pictures of kids, food, and homeschool life, all. day. long.
What great deals on used curriculum and books have you picked up lately?
