Home School Sale

This sale is CLOSED and all items distributed to new homes, as of fall, 2013. Thank you for your support!

Posted 7/15/13. Someone with the initials MB was wanting to buy my Math U See Delta package (from my home school sale linked below), but I cannot find anyone in any of my emails or PMs that has those initials and my short term recall in shot. Now I have NO idea who wanted to make this purchase. I am planning to mail this Friday (7/19), but don't have a name or address on this one. If you are MB, please email me again at jsaake AT yahoo DOT com or this item will be sold to another bidder on Friday morning. If you aren't the MB I am looking for, but can help circulate my odd request to other homeschool groups where she might see this, I would so appreciate the help! Thank you so very much!!! http://infertilitymom.blogspot.com/2013/07/home-school-sale.html - being shipped to alternate bidder today (7/19/13)

I'm a norther Nevada homeschooling mom for 10+ years, forced into "retirement," or at least changing educational direction, due to health circumstance (most recently, six strokes followed by hypoPARAthroidism). More of my story is found at StrokeOfGrace.blogspot.com.

As I mentioned on Wednesday, we are trying to clean out our old school room (major mixed emotions!) and raise funds for car repair and medical bills, so we hosted a yard sale two weeks ago, but hardly any of our quality homeschool curriculum sold that day! (I could have sold at least a dozen preschool an Kindergarten packages, had I had more than two sets that went almost immediately though!)

Much of it is in used, but still quite useable, condition and a little is brand new! We are asking about half (often significantly less than) off new prices, so if you are looking for just about any schooling product (10 year and 3 kids worth) ranging from first to eighth grades, we might well have it. While we do need to recoup as much monetarily as we can here, if cost is an issue and you really want the item, please speak up and offer whatever you can afford or feel the idem value to really be! We pray that these tools can become as much of a blessing to other families as they have been to us and want to get it all matched up to good homes.



I hope to have the entire process wrapped up by July 20 (2 weeks from today) but wanted to give you the first chance to come over, make offers, or ask questions.

Everything needs to find a home! Please help us spread this word around!!!

I will be making my final disposal of any remaining ideas by early August, so if you miss the July deadlines, feel free to email (info at the bottom of this post) to check if I have anything left to disperse in the fall, but I want to have a few weeks free this summer, before my kids start in their new classrooms on Aug. 12, where I don't have to deal with this at all!

The main things we have to offer (you might see other items of interest if you come to my south Reno home, but unfortunately I can no longer drive, so can't offer to meet to anywhere else) are:
