Re: How much do you spend?

This year with 4 kids in school I'm spending around $1300. Most of that goes toward my oldest as we reuse materials for my younger kids. For them we just have to buy the consumables plus a little here and there where I think I've found a better fit for them. We could spend less, but I'm picky about curricula. We could also spend a lot more, but I have to cut off the spending somewhere.

Re: How much do you spend?

I plan on doing Five in a Row with both my 1st grader & pre-k girls which was about $15. The girls do ABCMouse.com which is free for homeschoolers. We go to the library alot and do free things online like Starfall. We didn't use a curriculum for Kindergarten. So we don't plan to spend hardly anything. I don't think it's necessary. Especially with all the free or close to free resources there are. I may even take some things from here http://allinonehomeschool.com/ but we are relaxed with our homeschooling so we may just do the FIAR

Re: How much do you spend?

I keep a spread sheet of the books I'm looking for and prices so I know exactly lol. I have a prek (3 yr old) and a 1st grader this year and I've spend $47 on the prek curriculum (hod and explode the code for later) for the 1st grader I've spent $176 with a good bit of it being reusable when younger kids come around. So a little over $200 for both but I will only have to buy workbooks for any younger kids. When I check out curriculum it's always with the knowledge that it will more than likely have to work with following children and a tight budget as we have 2 now and one on the way and aren't sure we are done or not. Happy curriculum shopping everyone!

edit to add: I don't include extra curricular into our curriculum budget. DD also takes violin lessons at $20/ week and we plan on doing 4h and field trips. We just handle them as we go along.

That's awesome. I use 3 different Dollar Trees depending on what town we need to run errands in and I've only seen workbooks for preschool and kindergarten.

Re: How much do you spend?

About $600 for 4 kids this year. But we revamped and tried different curriculum. Next year I need everything new for my oldest but nothing but a few consumables for my youngest 3.
