I have always been a little cheap.  I have a hard time spending money unless I absolutely have to (though, admittedly I've gotten better at that over the past year or so).  When I was a kid, I loved to earn small amounts of money and then sort and count my coins over and over.

So, of course that mentality translated into my homeschooling.  Like I said, I've loosened up a bit, but I generally get sticker shock when I see curriculum prices and have tended to a more do-it-yourself style of preparation.

Yes!  You Can Homeschool for Free (or very cheap)!

In my search to find great resources for teaching my children, I have found so many great old books that really are treasures.  Many of them are available in print for just a few dollars (and they often are used for 2 years).  Some of my favorites are the McGuffey Readers, Primary Language Lessons, and Ray's Arithmetic, though there are many more if you just look around.

My love for finding a deal led me to writing a chapter about finding free ebooks, audiobooks, and other curriculum for the Big Book of Homeschool Ideas.  This book is an amazing compilation of ideas that will give inspiration, direction, and new life to your homeschool.  It covers ideas for all age children and is over 560 pages, so you know it covers a ton of topics (103 to be precise)!

Right now you can get an awesome deal on the Big Book of Homeschool Ideas when you purchase it in a bundle with the iHomeschool Studio mp3s.
