Many homeschool families buy a curriculum and then change their mind….often in the first weeks of school! New curriculum can be purchased directly from the publisher or other online outlets, but buying used is often a good option. In addition to SHAPE’s used curriculum sale each summer, there are several other local used curriculum sales each spring and, in addition to Amazon, ebay and Craigslist, there are numerous online sites where you can buy, sell or trade curriculum. Here are some local resources:
