Best homeschool used book sales in Phoenix

Homeschoolers can find manipulatives and teaching supplies at homeschool book sales.

If you are a homeschooling family, chances are you have already begun to think about the curriculum that you need for next year.  You may also be wondering if you can cash in any of the current materials to have a fund for all the new books that you need.  For Phoenix and Tucson households, there are several opportunities coming up to accomplish both goals at the same time, and have fun meeting some other homeschoolers.

Many local homeschool groups set up annual used book sales in which parents bring items they want to sell.  Besides getting some really great deals on a wide array of educational resources, buyers get to pick the brains of the sellers for fresh ideas for instructing the kids. Some sales will also feature representatives of curriculum companies who can give greater insights into their materials.

“I enjoy the sense of “community” that I feel during the fair.  It is such a blessing and encouragement to see so many homeschoolers in one setting.”  Roxanne Butcher, organizer for the Tucson Citywide Used Curriculum Fair
