Many families seem to be surprised as they enter the realm of homeschooling because educating your children at home does not have to be a financial strain.
There are certainly outrageously expensive solutions available, but if affordable education is what you’re looking for, it’s not difficult to locate.
After extensive research, I’ve prepared a list of websites that my family has found to be the most helpful in keeping our homeschool budget in check. If you want to buy curriculum and instructional resources but don’t want to empty your bank account, these websites are a wonderful place to start.
