Top 10 Signs You Are Curriculum Sale Crazy
...counting down from #10:
10. Your 1000s of books are deemed inadequate to properly school your [one?] child.
|Just one section. Of just the picture books. Sigh.|
8. You buy books for a subject you won't likely teach next year.
7. You are seriously considering putting your 2.5 file cabinets (10 packed drawers) on Atkins.
6. The following locations are FULL and have no additional free space for curriculum, manipulatives, children's books, or ANYTHING ELSE:
4. You have 3 or 4 copies of certain math-related children's books. Cause you might need multiples.
2. You attend THREE different sales in less than 10 days time. All because of #10.
1. Curriculum sales are your FAVORITE
So something like this *might* happen:
Your daughter graduates Friday night. You're up late. You get up at 5am Saturday to get ready for her grad party that starts at 2pm. Mid-morning, you get in the car. Drive 45 minutes to a curriculum sale. Shop 20ish tables in ~ an hour. Drive 45 minutes back. And return in time to host 70+ people from 2-10pm.

P.S. In case you don't know what Curriculum Sales are:
In our area we have used curriculum sales put on by the homeschool community in which you can get insanely great stuff. Cheap. As an example, I passed up a stack of Big Books marked at 50 cents each. Last year I filled a box--for about $5--with books and curriculum to study our state (a teacher was selling all her 4th grade materials) and she still had 3 or more tables left of state-related stuff after I was finished.
