Hi everyone! For today’s Tip Tuesday video, I’m talking about how to homeschool on a budget. Homeschooling is flexible in so many ways, and that includes budgeting. There are many options for homeschooling on a budget.

Here are some things to consider when creating a homeschooling budget:

  • Curriculum (most likely the greatest expense)
  • Testing Fees
  • Printing or Copying Costs
  • Building a Home Library
  • School Supplies
  • Extracurricular activities or lessons
  • Annual State Conventions
  • Technology Aids
  • Planning forms available in all of my LESSON planners!
  • Use the COAH Community Buy/Sell/Trade page

There are so many ways to save money and homeschool successfully. Below I’ve listed a few ideas to help get you started!

  • Field trips: A hands on learning tool
  • Homeschooling groups and co-ops

    It’s seems easy to spend an endless amount of money on homeschooling. 🙂 I have found that over the years, the used curriculum fairs (and online book selling sites) have been most helpful to keep our homeschool budget as low as possible. Reselling used books also helps offset the cost of new books that need to be purchased.
