Pen Posted January 1, 2012 Share Posted January 1, 2012 Here is a dilemma that keeps coming up, and I cannot seem to come up with the right balance. My question is how much do I get of a particular program, and when? Oftentimes there will be money to save by purchasing a set of things at once, compared to buying each as it is needed. But then what if it turns out not to be the right thing? Or, what if it seems to be right at first, but then things change. Seems like if I choose to get a program by the each (packet, book, etc.) then I need the whole lot and could have done better buying it all from the start. But if I go for the whole shebang at the outset, then it doesn't work out. Well, not always. I got the whole Magic Treehouse set and that worked out well, but other things, like Writing Strands, where I went for a package to start turned out to be not right for us. We are once again coming to the stage of needing new materials and I once again face this dilemma, particularly with history and writing materials at this time. Is this another Murphy's law? Or is there some way to better predict or plan? Or what? Any words of experience? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
