Notebooking, Map Tracing, Meal Planning (& More!): Deals for Homeschoolers

I DETEST Black Friday shopping.

I would rather walk over hot coals than step foot into a store the day after Thanksgiving. 

I do, however, like to grab deals ONLINE from the comfort of my own home.

There are a select few resources we use and LOVE In our homeschool. 

If you are interested in quality notebooking pages, downloadable maps, menu planning, online craft classes, and a few other goodies, I have detail in this post.

Remember -- LESS IS MORE. 

Choose a few resources you love, buy them ON SALE, and enjoy for the rest of the year!
