Hi there,

 

I'm looking for a few specific things for this year - it's our first year homeschooling. I am hoping to save some money by purchasing a gently used curriculum rather than a new one. I have been looking on craigslist and ebay with no luck. Can any of you recommend any forums, boards, etc online where homeschoolers buy/sell/trade curricula, if such a thing exists?

 

BTW I am looking for the RightStart Math Level C Starter Kit, just in case that matters. ;)

 

Thanks!

I have found great deals on curriculum used on amazon.com

http://www.homeschoolclassifieds.com/ is another option as well as http://www.hiphomeschoolmoms.com/the-hip-list/ which I've had good luck with.

Thanks so much - this is just what I am looking for. I did try searching on Amazon and didn't find this, so I appreciate the links to the other groups.

This year I've gotten some of my curriculum from http://www.enchantednotionsbooks.com and the shipping is alot cheaper than a lot of places I've seen.

Great question!  I didn't know about any of those resources until just now, but I have found all three of my kids' math books on Ebay.  I started looking late last spring and found the first two books within a few weeks, and I just found the last book a few days ago.  Hurray!
