When we first began to homeschool, I wasn’t sure how we were going to afford it. I was looking at all the curriculum’s and all that was needed to go along with them! Talk about overwhelming!! I quickly found out from my sister, some friends, and some research, that you REALLY did NOT have to spend tons of money on materials or curriculum. There is so much information at our fingertips. You can homeschool for very little and definitely stick to a budget, I know because we do!
