Last Day for Build Your Bundle 2018!

(Yes, you read that right!)

Here are direct links to start shopping:

One of the items we purchased to use is from the Thematic Units bundle and there are some GREAT products in the Mystery bundle (but I can’t tell you what they are!). Let’s just say they packed it full of great stuff!

In case you missed it, here’s a look at what we purchased for our family. You can read all about it in this post

It all ends in…


And just in case you are looking for everything from preschool through high school – below will show you how you can grab over $5200 in curriculum for $370. The early learning, elementary, and upper grades bundles are FULL of fabulous resources this year! Take advantage of the Buy 2, Get 1 Free option!

What I Bought from Build Your Bundle 2018

Save up to 95% on Homeschool Curriculum at the 2018 Build Your Bundle Sale

This last week you’ve likely heard snippets about this “huge homeschool sale” via graphics, giveaways, and social media. The Build Your Bundle sale officially kicked off on Monday, May 7th and will end on Monday, May 14th. 

I’ll be honest and tell you –  the first year it was held I was so very, very confused. There was a lot to wrap my brain around and by the time the end of the school year rolls around, my head is full of just wanting to be d.o.n.e. with all things school related. 

(Can I get an amen?)

BUT saving money on homeschool curriculum is something I do like, so I jumped in, trying to fully understand, and realized how much the could really benefit our family! Since then it has become one of my favorite homeschool sales of the year. 

In case you are feeling overwhelmed and haven’t quite figured out the ins and outs of the sale, be sure to look at this post for a more in-depth explanation on how the sale works. Definitely take a peek before May 14th though – because the sale ends at midnight and then you can’t take advantage of the deals you find now! (Scroll down to see what we will be purchasing). 

In case you missed it, here’s the post that goes a little more in detail on the bundles: 

My FAVORITE Homeschool Sale of the Year! (8 Days only)

The Bundles That Made My Basket

While I LOVE the pre-assembled bundles that have been put together, this year I opted to build three of my own bundles. 

I chose 3 bundles and used the “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” option to stack up the savings. 

  • Buy 5 premium for $39 (with no price limit) – I added the To Every Nation study, College Writing, Motivate Your Child, Screen Sense, and Essay Styles for High School (overall value $320)
  • Buy 10 for $39 ($19.99 and under) – Intro to Shakespeare Level B, Ultimate Math Cheat Sheets, Design Your Own Literature Based Program, Do Right: Learning to Make Wise Choices (Youth and Junior), DIY Breakfast Station, Rocks and Dirt, Branches of Government, Famous Scientists, Tried & True: Family Activities with Teens (overall value $132)
  • Buy 10 for $39 ($19.99 and under) – this was my FREE bundle – Loop Scheduling Workshop, Big Grammar Reference Bundle, Language Arts Interactive, Peter and the Wolf MP3, Great American Poets, Great American Poets 2, Prepared to Stand – Leader and Student guides, Healthy Snacks to Go, and What is God Doing? (overall value $125)

There are several things that I am REALLY excited about in the first bundle (College Writing, Essay Styles, and To Every Nation study), so the no price cap bundle was definitely the one I wanted to get the most out of my money! In the end that bundle was valued at $320 – and I paid $39! 

I haven’t had a chance to go through everything yet, but I know Kaleb will be excited about a few of them as well, especially the ones that involve food! :) 

Buy 2 Bundles & Get 1 FREE. Click for Details!

Overall though, I’m thrilled because the there are things I was able to get for our three youngest as well as a Bible study (Prepared to Stand) for next spring when I do a mini VBS with our church.

The Buy 2, Get 1 Free option is honestly a GREAT deal, especially if you want to buy several bundles – the offer extends to Buy 4, Get 2 Free…etc. There’s no cap (well, unless you buy every single bundle! :) 

In case you are interested, check out how you can get every single bundle (and product) for $370! This is using the Buy 2, Get 1 option. If you have preschool through almost high school, this is a great way to prepare for the upcoming years!

4. Consider the Build Your Bundle Option

The BIGGEST Homeschool Sale of the Year - ends 5/30/17

If you’d rather mix and match individual pieces of curriculum, choose the Build Your Own Bundle option. This is one of the ways I will purchase this year since there are several pieces I wanted, but they are in separate bundles. It has worked out great for me in the past(and I even used the buy 2, get 1 free deal for this option). 

While you are on the site, don’t forget to look at the the 50% off courses and memberships (those of you with high schoolers – pay attention to this one!). 


5. Buy Every Single Bundle

This might seem a little crazy, BUT – consider this. You can purchase over $5200 worth of curriculum for $370. The above graphic shows how to create your bundles to get the best possible deal.

With the Buy 2 and Get 1 Free option that Build Your Bundle offers, you can save HUGE from preschool all the way through high school!

Over $300 in Freebies and Exclusive Discounts - FREE with Any Purchase!

Last thing – and then I promise, I’m done! Every customer receives a big ol’ bundle of bonuses – so many great coupon codes and freebies are included (you’ll love it!).

Used Homeschool Curriculum Sale

You’re likely in the middle of figuring out what the plan is for next year’s school like we are. As our lists are being made, there are curriculum pieces being pulled off the shelves that we are no longer using – and they would love to find a new home (maybe in yours!). 

Below you’ll find used homeschool curriculum listed by category along with a short description and price. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and ask.
