All of you decorating gals will have to bear with me this week. No cute little trinkets or interesting pieces, (with five of the 8 kids all aged seven and under it would just get BROKEN anyway!) but I had great success at the used homeschool curriculum sale on Saturday-still in the realm of thrifty. Go and visit Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and find out what everyone else found this weekend.
Four teacher's editions at $2 apiece. (Regular price is $12-13 each) I need one more teacher edition and the student workbooks for next year.
This is a $20 book. I didn't even think I'd find one, but I did-and only paid $4!
Some goodies for our 1800's American History studies for next year. All totaled maybe $15.
I've been eyeing these Lynne Cheney books for over a year now at Books a Million. I found them for $5 each. (Well, actually she wanted $8 for one, but I talked her into $5.) They are regular $17. They were in brand new condition.
Some Brian Jacques for Tyler's collection. Total $3
Some Royal Diaries for Brittany's collection. She's very interested in historical royal families and Queen Elizabeth 1 is her absolute favorite. She didn't have that one, and I told her I'd look, but didn't really think I'd find it. But, again, I did! And, for $2 each!
Some American Girl Felicity for Bethany and Brooke's colonial studies we were doing this year.
$2 for all three books.
Some extra little odds and ends books for next year- maybe totaled $3.
I wasn't planning on using this next year, but I'd had my eye on this Beautiful Feet study on the Holling C. Holling books for a few years. I had to go ahead and get it for $2.
And, one of my best scores was all FIVE book/DVD sets of MathUSee plus two sets of starter blocks and one completer set for what it would have cost me for just two of the sets at cost! I'll only have to buy one $25 student workbook and the fraction overlays. Whooohooo!
I had also found a $15 Abeka biology for Brittany and then a lady had bits and pieces of hers (the exact same biology) and she gave me hers for free.
So....I'm almost all set for next year. I just need a microscope, One Year Adventure Novel, those few student workbooks for math and spelling and that's almost it!
