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.

Ready. Sit. Read!

Target's "Ready. Sit. Read!" program is available for free and is open to homeschoolers. Essentially, you are starting a book club. You can choose from books the club lists, along with worksheets and activities to go with them, or use books of your own choosing. You can work just with your own family, or invite others to join you. When we joined, we received a package by mail that included some signs and a flag and a book about the program. (Something that came as a total surprise since I wasn't expecting something like that from a free club!)

You can learn all about it HERE.

Also - just to note - you can access the book flyers/worksheets directly, without even creating a club, by going TO THIS PAGE. There's a wide range of books listed, including Charlotte's Web, Little House in the Big Woods, and The Giving Tree.
