We are very casually preparing to homeschool our preschooler. I was wondering if any experienced HSers had tips on what kind of supplies you like to stock up on while they're cheap during the summer.
I enjoy the game of back to school sales. I usually stock up on most everything if it's cheap enough. I keep it to use in during the year then when the big sales start up again I take all of it to a food/grocery pantry (they always seem to really appreciate it) and start over again. I budget $50 or so. Some items are used up completely and some are never touched (like 1¢ protractors). Staples lets homeschoolers get 25 each of the penny items, lots of our things come from there. I generally only get as much as will fit in a file box sized plastic tote. Any extras are donated right away. Anything I know we won't use are also donated right away. Things like packs of 1¢ pencils are set aside so I can let teachers I know keep them to hand out to kids who don't have a pencil since we like the name brand pencils.
