My goal this year was to spend as little money as possible, so I'm recycling quite a lot. This actually turned out to be terrific; I discovered things on the shelves I had forgotten about (English for the Thoughtful Child) and downloaded great free printables.

As an aside, I love the online and on-site classes for high schoolers. They love them, too!
