do you buy your curriculum from?  I'm trying to find a good company and it's like I'm hitting a brick wall.

Shannon, it depends on the curriculum you want.  I have bought things from Anabaptist bookstore.  But we have used the same curriculum for 3 years, so I always buy from them. 

I also buy at Homeschooling conventions...LOVE the discounts you can get at them!

Oh, and one more that is unbelievably cheaper in almost anything:   Rainbow Resource Center

I use rainbow resource as well.  They have free shipping over 150.00.  Rainbow has cheap prices as well. You don't get tracking with their shipping but their service is great. Also use CBD.com.  They are a christian company but carry a lof of different publishers. Their shipping and service is great as well.

For Science, I like Home Science Tools. I have always had great service from them


Was there a particular curriculum or subject you were looking for?

I third the Rainbow Resource.  I did use homeschoolingbooks.com, but now am using the Rainbow.

I found a great resource for science related stuff, onlinesciencemall.com . I ordered from them and the shipping price is great.

I also buy from the Farm Country GEneral STore.  I think the web address is www.homeschoolfcgs.com.  I like Rainboe Resource too, but "sometimes" FCGS has lower prices on some things and their shipping is lower.

If you know exactly what you want and are looking for used curriculum, 2 of my favorite sites are www.homeschoolclassifieds.com and www.homeschoolchristian.com.  There's always ebay, half.com and amazon.com for used books.

I use rainbow resource also, and christianbook.com.  They have pretty good prices.  If you know what you want, search for it there and see if they have it.

I use www.christianbook.com for most of my stuff.  If you're not Christian, don't worry, I'm not either and I find plenty of secular curriculum there.  They have good prices and a HUGE variety of stuff.  It's my go to site when I need something.

Good luck!

I also use www.christianbookcom    I've used a lot of different ones and it's my favorite.  If you don't want to charge  your order to a credit card they also do electronic checking.

I also like www.homeschoolchristian.com

They'll do electronic checking instead using a Credit Card.
