Welcome!


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 printable award certificates.

If you'd like to give your child some type of award, completion, or promotion certificate, there are several sites that provide these for free.

FREE PRINTABLE CERTIFICATES - nice for older kids.

BILLY BEAR'S CERTIFICATES - customizable, for younger kids.

123 CERTIFICATES - all ages, customizable, many choices. Check out the reading certificates - there are incentive charts to record the child's reading and matching certificates for when his goal is reached. They have the same program in the "cute" awards; you could use the incentive charts for any kind of school work or chores and then reward a matching certificate when the jobs are done. Nice! :) (Also note - this site has a "sister" site with free printable incentive charts and stickers: STICKERS AND CHARTS.)

Cool free resources you've got listed there. I've used them all at one point or another.

I've also used some of the dozens of free awards from aaacertificates.com and eventually signed up for an account. They've got loads more (thousands) and even have a tool where you can upload your own graphics to use in an award.
