Homeschool, or sublimating your child’s education doesn’t have to cost you. I have been homeschooling for about a year officially, and I can honestly say I have only spent about $50 on workbooks and materials of the like. I look for free resources, like worksheets and printables.
Websites with Free Resources
I have accounts to buy from four different websites where I get my worksheets and printables for free. In order to download or print from these sites you do have to sign up for an account, but that too is free. They do have have content that you have to pay for as well. Some of these links are affiliates.
Their dream is to make the expertise and wisdom of all the teachers in the world available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. There are a lot of paid resources here of course but there are freebies as well. I receive their newsletter once a week I think and included are 10 freebies, but most sellers also have a section of freebies in their shop as well.
Educents is passionate about bringing parents, homeschoolers & teachers access to educational products, all in one place. I love these guys! In fact I am an affiliate of theirs. They not only have freebies, but they also have a lot of sales where something might be marked down to a couple bucks!

Education.com’s aim is to give educators of all kinds the resources they need to promote learning at home, at school, and in their communities. They are a website that offers free printables (you have a limit of prints per month) with a premium upgrade (paid) available. My favorite section is the Worksheet Generator. Create reading, math or just for fun worksheets.
Teacher’s Notebook is the best place for educators to find, share, and sell original classroom materials. It is very similar to TpT. My favorite feature is at the bottom of their page. Under Resources there is a link to Popular & Free, and free is what we’re all about here.
