I wasn’t too concerned about our budget when we began homeschooling because I started with a three year-old. It probably helped that I didn’t know how many resources were available to me then because I was able to homeschool very inexpensively at that time.
Over time, though, I realized that there are a bazillion different curriculum options out there and some are considerably more costly than others. It’s easy to get a case of the “gotta have its” when looking at curriculum choices. If you aren’t careful, you can get carried away and overspend easily.Homeschooling can be a budget nightmare.

As much as homeschool parents love curriculum and get ridiculously excited when shopping for school supplies, I don’t know any who would suggest that you put your family finances in danger in order to homeschool.
Many of us have made adjustments in our homes in order to afford the homeschool lifestyle, so if budget is a concern for you as you consider homeschooling, you aren’t alone.
Homeschooling on a budget is a subject that’s dear to my heart, simply because it’s always been a part of our homeschool journey. I’ve shared my best homeschool budgeting tips in the following places:
