Favorite Places to Shop for Homeschool Items

Am I boring everyone with all these posts? If so I'll stop just let me know.
Taking a break from some of the other posts I've been asked where I shop for items in our school. First off I can answer I do not shop at Walmart. I have issues with the company and they way they do their business so I boycott them. Yes I am one person and I don't really make a difference but it's the fact that I know I'm not helping them that makes me feel good. Okay moving on.

Costco: Seriously. You'd be amazed at what you can find in there. From school supplies, snacks, movies, books, and workbooks. Here are a few of the amazing things I've found there in the last year... Course the links won't be to Costco as they probably don't have them anymore
You Wouldn't Want to be series 3 nice size books with about 6 of these stories in each book. Cost me $7.99 a book. Those same books individually sell for $9.95 on amazon. I figure I saved about $155.
Grammar Tales Amazon has the set for $35. I paid $15.99 at Costco.
Phonics Tales Amazon $65 Costco $18.99 and they have them in stock as of July 3rd.
Alpha Tales $40 on Amazon. Costco has these right now for $18.99
And Costco has a few other of the "Tales" sets right now for $18.99
I've found many other treasures there too. Take a look around the next time you are there.

Target I love Targets $1 section. I have found many many things I can use in school there. Dry erase markers, books, charts, sheet protectors and more.

The Dollar Store Again like Target you can find some really nifty stuff for school there. And locally the Dollar Tree has a small teacher section.

Barnes and Noble Their discount books in their store are great. Yes sometimes you don't find anything but eventually you will. Plus they do clearance discounts with 50% of the discounted price at times. I scored a really nice chess set for $15 at a 50% off sale. Regular price $125.

Local thrift stores. Again amazing what you can find in there. 

Amazon of course.

Rainbow Resource Center And if you have never received their catalog go order one now.

I know this isn't a huge list but it gives you an idea of a few places we shop.

I'm glad someone is finding them useful. I hope they help anyone even if it's just a little.
