I shared a post recently about some of the mistakes I made when I started homeschooling. I made the mistake of avoiding interest-led learning in favor of a specific curriculum course and a strict schedule. One of my amazing readers commented and asked me for more tips on encouraging interest-led learning. I decided it would be a fun time to write a post in case she isn’t the only one struggling with how to include interest-led learning. If you don’t homeschool, don’t look away just yet. Interest-led learning is great for all kids.
We are always looking for ways to cut costs on things we need around here. Sometimes that means a trip to the local thrift stores. I have to say I absolutely love thrift shopping. There is just something about the rush of finding a great deal. I also love the moment of realization from the kids. “I can get one thing at the store or like twenty at the thrift store for the same money.” I wanted to take a few minutes and share some great tips for making the most of thrift shopping.
Making the Most of Thrift Shopping
It’s no secret that we are huge Disney fans around here. We love Disney. There is just something about the magic and joy that is a part of Disney World. We aren’t such big fans of the prices on some of the merchandise. It is quality stuff made well but sometimes my bank account just won’t allow me to buy it at theme park prices. That’s why we are big fans of the Orlando Disney Outlets. I wanted to take a few minutes and share a comparison of each store with you.
