Where can you buy/sell used homeschool books and curriculum? It's a hobby or an obsession for some of us that we can't pass up a book sale.

Where can you buy/sell used homeschool books and curriculum? It’s a hobby or an obsession for some of us that we can’t pass up a book sale. I’ve sniffed out as many as I can find. Let me know of any others that we should add to our list (message me at [email protected])

Buying Used Books: Ýou’re a new homeschooler looking to find a deal. You’ll get to see what others are using…and talk to them about the program. You can get an idea what their personality and homeschool style is. And what kind of curriculum they use that fits that style.

Save money on books you know you want to use right now. Stock up on some back-up programs that you might supplement this year. Stockpile some items that you’ll plan to use in future years. Grab up some deals while you can!

Selling Used Books: You’re finished with curriculum or decided not to use it. All the kids have outgrown that level. It’s time to downsize the collection–so you can reinvest in more materials you need this year.
