Great Books At Thrifty Prices With ThriftBooks #LoveThriftBooks


I had no idea when I started to homeschool my oldest son 4 years ago how expensive it would be. Curriculum, books and school supplies can be costly. Fast forwarding years later I am now homeschooling four children. When it’s is time to make my curriculum and book purchases, I shop around for the best deals.

My family is starting a new homeschool program this year which has certain curriculum requirements. For my oldest son is required to read specific books. It would be entirely too expensive to purchase these books new so I searched to find them used. I was not going to go all over town to find them either, time does not permit that so when I stumbled upon ThriftBooks. It was like finding a treasure box full of amazing reads with a selection of 7 million books at great prices!
