Thanks everyone for the replies so far --
OK - good point every one is making about being able to reuse some of this. I really should be asking how much you spend on your oldest child. But my baby is 4.5 years younger than my DD - can I really reuse stuff for him? Is there any limit you all set for reusing curricula on the younger kids? Case in point: last year the # of planets changed from 9 to 8 -- think of all the other advances we might have in the next 5 years that will make the curricula I buy today obsolete!

I didn't respond to the poll, because I'm still buying stuff so I don't know. But I just wanted to say our local private school charges $250/month. That's at least $2000/year, so I figure as long as I don't go too much over that it's "reasonable". (And I don't think I'm going to spend anywhere close to that - and I plan to reuse it.)

We're using a cyber charter school... so everything is free; books, workbooks, even 'extras' like the books we'll need to read over the course of the year and the really nice paintbrushes and tempra and clay that they recommend. I went out and bought the supplies that were not provided, but which we'll need anyway-- crayons, kid's scissors, glue sticks, pencil boxes, and I'm including a new, more-family-friendly planner for me. Oh, and a giant calendar for the wall (the boy NEEDS a schedule, otherwise he'll sit and do math or history all. day. long.). I spent a grand total of $30 on these supplies, for two children (the BooBah insists on participating) but on curriculum I spent only a half an hour of time.
Can I ask what cyber school you're using? I'm considering the K12 system, but am still researching . . .
