The next few months will be ones of excitement for many homeschoolers. Why? Because it is time for used homeschool curriculum sales. There is nothing better than finding yourself smack in the middle of a room full of homeschool books and more. This year, as always, there will be a number of used curricula sales for you to attend in the West Tennessee area.
Disclaimer: This post is a public service announcement letting you know where you can shop. In no way am I trying to get you to purchase more books than you need, cause you to hide books in your car or to justify why you spent the grocery money on books. 😉 Understand, if you do, I will completely empathize with you. I am right there with you, because I absolutely love books and will make just about any excuse as to why I should have more. Are you the same?
Used homeschool curricula sales allow you to not only clear your home of books you no longer need, bought and will never use (I do that a lot) or have finished using after the school year. They are also a wonderful opportunity for you to find great prices on books you will need for the upcoming school year, to add to your library or just to have more books. All homeschoolers need more books, so here is a list of the sales.
Some sales are confirmed and the details for others are still being worked out. See the list below for upcoming sale events. As I learn of others, I will add them. If you see one that one is not listed, feel free to e-mail me the information. Please do not contact the venue for event information. I will post more (ex: contact person, etc.) as soon as I learn it.
