Shameless Plug for a Homeschool Site I like :-)

Please forgive my bad typing... I'm stuck in bed with my horrid numb foot, typing on the laptop with the broken keyboard while browsing The Homeschool Buyer Co-op site for ways to earn "SmartPoints," which I can redeem for - hmm... I guess I should go and look at what the incentives are before I go racking these things up. 
Anyway, one easy way is simply to mention the site on my blog, which I don't mind doing because it is one way for homeschooling families to save money - sometimes. 
Don't waste too much time on the site because it's addictive:  you're bound to find stuff you "can't live without," in which case, you probably won't save much money. 
Many offers are on a sliding scale:  the more families buy in, the more savings.  That's how I was able to buy our "Meet the Masters" art curriculum for much less than the official price.  They are also offering a deal right now on Evan-Moor's TeacherFileBox, so if you use a lot of those resources, it might be worth it (though that one is pricey).
Co-op membership is free and confidential, and entitles homeschooling families to discounts from over a hundred educational suppliers. The site offers free information as well, like databases of free curriculum, field trips, and educational contests and scholarships. There's even a summer reading program with real prizes!
Click here for more information.
I also get a small credit if you visit the site THROUGH the links in this post...  so go right ahead and click anywhere.  ;-)
