I have been homeschooling for many many many years now, but sometimes I feel as if its all still new. Like I am a novice and still don't know all the 'rules' ha ha. Being that we unschool that is pretty funny in an ironic sort of way.
So recently I thought of a way to save me hundreds of dollars a year. I am certain that I am not alone in the amount of money I spend on printer paper, and ink, not to mention the time, and energy I spend searching for, downloading and printing worksheets for my youngest two.
So what is this money saving tip you ask?
First I print one sheet instead of multiple sheets of the same thing. (I have two children in the same grade) I print them up and put them in a protective clear cover. Like these...
Then I bought some wet erase markers, this is essential because you don't want them to smudge their work, but you don't want it to be permanent either. I made sure to buy fine point markers so that the tip was sharp.
