"Works For Me Wednesday"

This is my frugal tip for the week for "works-for-me Wednesday". Hope it can save somebody a little cash! You can read other helpful hints on

We homeschool, and I cannot afford to by workbook after workbook, so I tear the pages out of a workbook and use a 3 ring binder with plastic page protectors and insert the workbook pages into them. They use dry erase markers and a paper towel to do each page. This works great for little ones since they can do the same pages over and over and you can pass down the book child to child. This is also a money saver for those who do not homeschool for at home fun. It works great in the car if your children are taught to only write ON THE PAGES, not the car seats! ;)

This is a great tip. You should submit it to
They do a Management Monday feature where they link to ideas for organizing homeschool classroom materials.

Neat idea, I'll have to try this!

HA! and how do you teach them that????

This is a great tip and one I've never thought of before. just make sure it's not a consumable workbook...some companies expect you to buy a new one with each new child. Now this idea doesnt seem, in any way, to infringe on something like that...but I guess it would probably make me feel better if it were me.
