ass others said, manuals and books are of course reusable... besides what others mentioned many people will use plastic sheets or separate pieces of paper making workbooks reusable. Any manipulative's (such as pattern blocks , rods, sandpaper letters etc... ) are all reusable.
I would have to say about 90% of my homeschool materials were all bought or given to me used.
there are several websites for selling homeschool materials, amazon frequently has good deals, getting friendly with other local HSers will sometimes let stuff fall into your lap, thrift stores, garage sales, and sometimes the dump all provide fantastic stuff once you train your eye and know what to look for.
