greenmamato3 Posted June 16, 2009 Share Posted June 16, 2009 we're only in our second year of schooling and i'm trying to figure out how to most effectively conserve money without running myself wild by going to the library every day. i use and abuse my library's selection but some things i need ON my shelf for those spur of the moment teaching opportunities. furthermore, i've been thinking about all of this even more b/c of all the WONDERFUL resources out there for the study of Ancients this year. i want to have science/bio/history readers, read alouds, reference books, etc. i'm pretty savvy when it comes to amazon/half.com/craigslist; and we have a lot of great used book sales here for homeschoolers (though of course i've missed all three in the past 2 weeks b/c we 've been out of town). how can you go about buying readers without spending $4 on every one? how do you narrow down what you'll buy and what you'll just get from the library? do you buy ahead for the entire year or as you go? i need help on this very practical/pragmatic/potentially pedantic part of schooling!
