Homeschool days can be l-o-n-g sometimes. I will confess to using electronics in our school a LOT … for learning and for entertainment, both. But we also use markers, colored pencils, notebooks, stickers, charts, calendars and planners, my laminator, pencil sharpeners, craft supplies, and BOOKS!
If you’re budget conscious like me, then you only buy electronics and school supplies when you can get a good deal. Well, today is the THE day! Amazon Prime Day! You can get Kindle Tablets at their lowest prices ever! I can’t believe the Kindle Fire starts at $33.33 – that’s lower than their Black Friday deals!! They also have a Kids Edition for your littles! We can use apps, watch videos, play games, listen to music, and best of all, read books (even picture books) on our Kindle Fire. I’ve had mine for years and still use it and carry it with me all over town.
With an Amazon Prime Membership (30-day free trial available), you not only get amazing prices, but also FREE SHIPPING on most items, and exclusive opportunities for savings through their Daily Deals. So, as you start re-stocking your homeschool shelves, I suggest you consider shopping through Amazon, like I do (all.the.time)!

(Yes, these are affiliate links. I would be silly to not ask you to click on these images, because I have to pay for my blog habit – if no one reads and no one clicks, I’m writing to myself, and paying to publish my writing online when I could just save it on my computer and read it to myself. – Please click through and at least window shop! – I’m not above begging! – But I’m wholeheartedly thankful!)

I’ve used my Amazon Prime Membership to buy homeschool supplies, books, movies, clothes, and to feed my addiction to coloring books and art supplies. I started with the 30-Day Free Trial, and that convinced me that it was worth it! I hope you give it a try, too.

My life changed for the better when I invested in a large supply of good-quality pencils and an electronic pencil sharpened! Experienced homeschool moms will tell you – nothing stalls the day like the loss of every pencil in the house, and the only one you CAN find has no tip. Excuse-prevention is key to survival! 😉
