In need of books to fill in the gaps of your home school? By utilizing your local thrift store to pick up books can save a ton of money. I have come across a lot of great educational books from the Civil War, Space, Kids Atlas, I could go on and on, but the saving are incredible I paid anywhere from .25 cents to .75 cents per book. My bookcase pictured filled with books from the thrift store cost of all the books $30.00 dollars what an awesome deal and we are just beginning. I have to admit my kids get just as excited in the Thrift store getting books as if they were in a department store.
