Homeschool Buyers Co-op for the Frugal Family

In an effort to save money this year,  I'm joining my friends Marcy +Ben and Me  as well as Sam +Sam's Noggin  to bring you this weekly  link up full of tips for becoming a more Frugal Family. We will be sharing ideas to help you save money on groceries and meals, homeschool, crafts, and plenty of frugal DIY posts. We've made many sacrifices so that I can stay at home to teach the boys, and I've become pretty frugal in order to help make that possible and to keep it that way. It's become a challenge I truly enjoy, and one I look forward to sharing with you! 

This week: 

Homeschool Buyers Co-op - major savings for your frugal homeschool

Membership to the HSBuyers Co-op is FREE and provides benefits that include a FREE 
homeschool ID card, free curriculum and much more! 

Get your Free ID card here 
Your homeschool ID can be used to earn discounts for your family. Where have we used our ID? I used it to gain a teachers card for Michaels craft store where we buy loads of supplies for our homeschool classroom. Get both students, and teacher ID's. Fill in your own ID numbers. 

We used our ID card from HSBuyers Co-op to gain a $50 discount on our Florida Aquarium annual family pass. We paid $49 for a family membership valued at $99.  We've used it many times already this year! It in turn gives us access to other zoo's and aquariums around the country. That alone makes the HSBuyers Co-op one of my heroes.
