Used Curriculum

After deciding to homeschool our kids last year, I immediately joined a Yahoo Group called "cathswap".  This group is mainly for Catholic Homeschoolers who are looking to buy or to sell used curriculum and other homeschooling materials. 

This group has been invaluable to me!  I have purchased many hard to find and/or out of print items that I hadn't been able to find anywhere else.  I have also been able to sell many items that I had on hand that I ended up not using or not liking once I had reviewed it. 

Since our kids are going back to our parish school next year, I will have many items for sale in the next few months.  I will likely put them on the Yahoo Group but I thought I would give my blog readers first chance at purchasing the items.  Please feel free to forward this post to anyone you might know of that would be interested in purchasing gently used homeschooling curriculum. 

The prices that I list will include shipping charges (regular book rate).  If you're interested in an item and want more information, feel free to email me with your questions.  It will all be "first come, first serve".  Any items that don't sell will be kept in my inventory and will be on another Used Curriculum post sometime in the summer!
