Used Homeschool Curriculum
Looking to find a used homeschooling curriculum for sale. There are lots of places to look if you get creative.
Chosen your best homeschool curriculum
? And now want to get the best deal? There are several places you can look to find a bargain.
Homeschoolers can be a helpful bunch so there are several places you can look. You might just find 'the one' who is selling what you need.
I recommend you also try to coincide with the times when homeschoolers might be having a clear out. That is the most likely time to pick up a bargain. Most homeschool years start either August/September or January - so just before then they will be thinking about their new materials and getting rid of their old.
Finding Used Homeschool Curriculum for Sale
Amazon and Ebay.
- Ask at your homeschool groups.
Be sure to ask around your area for anyone selling their old curriculums. If you put out the word that you are looking then you may get a great bargain.

Many curriculums or methods of homeschooling have online groups (such as Yahoo groups). Members there often have used homeschool curriculums for sale. It is also worth asking on the online groups for your local area. Here are some examples :
