About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

Free online textbooks.

As most of these are written on a college level, they are, of course, advanced materials. However, if you have a high schooler interested in a particular topic/subject, or perhaps you are yourself, you might want to check out some of these offerings.

FREE TECH BOOKS - covers computer science, programming & scripting, mathematics, and other related fields

FREELOAD PRESS - mostly maths and computers, but a few other books are available, such as "Writing Exploratory Essays". Just note - the site says "most" of the books are free, but some have a end-users fee.

WIKIBOOKS - covers a very wide range of topics, languages, sciences, history, and more. Has a section called wikijunior specifically for younger children. This site, being a wiki, is definitely a work in progress, but it does have some nice reference resources.
