One of the best sources for homeschool curriculum is the Homeschool Buyers Co-op, founded and operated by homeschoolers. The Co-op uses its purchasing power to get its members super low prices for homeschool curriculum, including many of my Top Picks. Co-op membership is FREE and qualifies you for lots of benefits, including free SmartPoints that can be used to purchase curriculum. Ordinarily, you get 100 SmartPoints when you join, but enter CATHY in the Referral Code space on their sign up form, and I'll get a small bounty in support of my website, and you'll get 500 FREE SmartPoints, which are enough to purchase a number of products in their SmartPoints Vendor Hall.
