Building a Homeschool Library ~ October

Welcome to Faith and Good Works! I am so blessed that you have stopped by. 

It’s time for me to share with you the books that I was able to add to our homeschool library in October. Sadly, I must tell you that, I will no longer be shopping at Goodwill for our books. They raised their prices on all books. I was so disappointed when I found out. Although $.99 may not seem like a huge amount to pay for a book…and it isn’t if it were  for a thick, hard-backed book….but I consider it a little too much to ask for a used, small paper-back childrens book.

So here are the 10 books that I found at Hosparus Thrift Shoppe in October. I spent $.50 on each book, so a total of only $5.00 for the month.

Now that I won’t be shopping at Goodwill, that leaves me with only one nice thrift store in our area to hunt for books. Hubby is probably pleased about this (wink, wink) as I won’t be finding and bringing as  many books home anymore. Even if I only find 10 books each month at one thrift store, it’s still 120 books a year added to our homeschool library for around $60, that seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Have you found any great books to add to your homeschool library at your local thrift store lately?

    I’m a 2nd gen homeschooler, so my strategy is just to borrow from my mom’s library and get my books for free. haha! I’m definitely benefiting from her 20+ years of homeschooling!

      20+ years of homeschooling. I bet you benefit from “borrowing” her knowledge & experience too!

    We have a lot of luck at garage sales too.
    A lot of our thrift stores charge .99cents a book but if you buy 4 you get one free. I am very picky which books I pay for a dollar for, but many are still worth $1.

      I haven’t had much luck at garage sales recently but I am always on the look out. I would pay $1 for hard back books in good condition but the small paperback books, while still in decent used condition, usually have some sort of writing in the front/back covers so I have a hard time paying more than $.50 for those. I am picky as well 🙂
