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.

More Home Economics.

Aside from cooking, there are other things I believe we should teach our children, including money management, good housekeeping skills, and BASIC SEWING SKILLS. Yes, even for boys! My son can't do anything complicated with a needle - but I did make sure he knows how to fix a button or a tear in a seam. If he ever lives on his own for any length of time, he'll probably need to know!

And for anyone interested in embroidery, here's a nice little site. It's a blog, but if you scroll down, you'll see links in the right-hand column for something called STITCH SCHOOL.
