Homeschool Supplies On A BudgetDec 20, 2022
When we first started homeschooling 10 years ago I was working on a tight budget and homeschooling 5 kids.
Sometimes all you have are the basics. That’s okay! Start there.
I knew that my inventory would gradually grow over time, but I was working with 5 lead pads, an English curriculum, a science curriculum, and the supplies they had in their bags. It was the end of the year and 3 of my children came home anxious about testing. I wasn’t prepared for the decision to take them out of public school, but I knew that I had a responsibility to enable success. To me, that meant more than them being another statistic in the system; a system that is designed to create employees, not entrepreneurs.
Homeschooling on a budget looks a lot like the supplies we buy for public schools.
Here is a great place to start on a low budget:
Lined Paper – is essential
Large White Board
Small Lined White Board
Stapler & Staples
Desk & Chair
As we learn and grow in our homeschooling journey we are able to expand our inventory. These can be donations, sales that we find, or thrift stores where we can buy gently used items. I have compiled a small list of items on Amazon, but these items can also be found in other stores.
Electric Heavy-Duty Pencil Sharpener
Printer & Ink
Globe or Map
Set up a space designed for your child’s interests and tastes.
Small Area Rug
Fraction Math Manipulatives
Math Cube Manipulatives
Osmo Coding Starter Kit
