Free Homeschooling List

Homeschooling can cost you as much or as little as you want it to. I know homeschooling families that spend thousands and ones that spend nothing except for maybe some ink and paper. Most homeschooling families live off one income so we tend to go about it as cheaply as we can while still attaining materials that fit our children's individual needs.  For those of you looking for more free resource here you go.
