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! :)

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!
