In this economy, everyone is trying to save and scrimp. While I know there is no "typical" homeschooling family, more often that not a homeschooling family survives on one income. That being the case, homeschooling parents have always found ways to bargain shop for their homeschool needs.

Please share with us how YOU penny pinch. What discount programs do you belong to? What sales do you wait for? Is there any particular retailer that you recommend? Do you know of any free materials (be it online or otherwise) that you use for supplementing/worksheets, etc.?
