Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

Group Buy on Dave Ramsey Financial Curriculum

I'm still knee-deep in all things cars, but I definitely wanted to take time out to blog about the current group buy that the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op is offering on financial curriculum from Dave Ramsey. We'll be using this as the core for our year-long study on money.

When you purchase through the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, you received great savings of up to 67% on products that help all ages learn about personal finance. The discount applies to their adult books and the elementary / high school curriculum. This group buy ends on August 16th.

We will be purchasing the elementary bundle, which includes Financial Peace, Jr. and Junior's Adventures Boxed Book Set. Here is the description from their website:

Financial Peace Jr. PLUS Junior's Adventures Boxed Set
Make a real difference in a child's life! For ages 3-12, this special includes age-appropriate tools for teaching kids about money. It's never too early to teach them how to make wise decisions with their money, whether it's $1 or $100. Designed for ages 3-12. Bundle includes:

  • Financial Peace Jr. - Dry-erase board to track commission earnings, Dry-erase board to track savings amounts, Envelope system (3 separate envelopes), Clip-n-carry coin case, Give, Spend, and Save magnets, Cool calculator, Instruction manual, Instructional audio CD
  • Junior's Adventures Boxed Set - 6 hardcover kids' books in a keepsake boxed set, each book centers around a particular life lesson - working, spending, giving, saving, integrity, and debt.
The regular price for this bundle is $79.94, but the price through the co-op is $44.95. Orders over $65 ship for free.

If you're not familiar with the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, it's a wonderful resource for finding discounts on popular curriculum. In addition, when you buy certain items, refer new members or write field trip reviews, you can earn points to use on future purchases. For example, I'm planning to use points I earned buying our Critical Thinking Company curriculum from them (same price with free shipping) to pay for part of our IXL membership renewal.

Membership is free, so if you're interested in joining, please consider doing so through my referral link. When you join through this link, I'll get 100 SmartPoints, and you'll get 100 SmartPoints just for joining!
