In celebration of my 3rd year anniversary with Discount Home School Supplies, I am holding an Anniversary Sale and giving away a microscope! Isn’t that exciting????
You can find my anniversary sale by clicking on the link. I have worked most of the day on the sale page, and I have things all nice and tidy, I think. (smile)
The best incentive I thought of to give you is free shipping on any order over $25.00 for one week only! This is a pretty big deal for me to offer, since I just had to increase my shipping rates. So take advantage of my generosity this week!!!
There are also some free digital products that will be available to anyone who makes a purchase during the sale. I will email you a link to the download page within 24 hours of your order being processed.You can see the SALE PAGE HERE.
How can you enter the contest to win a microscope? Well, it’s pretty easy! You just copy the following paragraph with active links and paste it on your blog or send it to your email groups or friends. Then come back here and leave a comment. You can link to your blog, or if you sent emails, you can just ask me to enter you in the contest. Be sure to fill in the block that asks for your email address. I will need a way to contact you!
*** Discount Home School Supplies is holding a contest to give away a microscope. You can choose between one of the three following miscroscopes from my website, an MSK-01 Microscope, an MFL-06 microscope, or a SMD-04 Microscope. Just blog about the contest and link back to Tami’s Blog. ***
One winner will be chosen at random sometime on July 23, 2008. This will give me time to complete order processing from my sale. I will announce the winner here on my blog sometime on July 23, 2008, Lord willing!
Update – July 23, 2008 – No more new comments will be accepted for the contest! Thank you!
Does the thought of homeschooling your child/ren through high school strike fear into your heart? Do you have a child that does not fit the “high achiever” profile, or one who would rather do anything but school work? Karen Davis will address these issues at the Second Annual Love to Learn Conference* in August, with the topic “A Relaxed Approach to High School at Home.” Join us to hear Karen speak and explore a way to approach high school that puts you and your teen/s on the same team, on August 16, 2008, at Catawba Valley Community College, in Hickory.
Karen Davis has one homeschooled graduate, and three more children at home, ages 17, 11and 7. If you would like to hear Karen and other wonderful speakers, visit http://www.LoveToLearnConference.com* for information on how to register for the second annual Love to Learn Conference*!*
The Love to Learn Conference was created to fill the need for up to date, accurate, unbiased, information concerning issues that affect the climate of homeschooling in North Carolina. We want to provide a variety of speakers and sessions on a wide array of homeschooling topics. There will be something for everyone from the beginning homeschool family to those more experienced. We are pleased to create an inviting environment for the sharing of homeschool information. We are inclusive, and open to all homeschoolers. We hope you come to enjoy and share this homeschool journey. Please join our grass roots effort to get the word out by sharing this post with other homeschool lists!
I have had trouble posting to my blog through Blogger. I am not sure where the problem is, so I thought I would try another new post and see what happens.
I am launching big news tonight in conjunction with my aniversary sale for Discount Home School Supplies. You will definitely want to check back!

Unless you live with a 6 month supply of food on hand, I am sure you have noticed that food and staple items have been increasing in price on an almost weekly basis. What are you doing to cope with it? I have implemented several strategies.
I use The Grocery Game to help me track sales and coupons for my favorite grocery store, Walgreens, and CVS.
My husband and I decided to split a cow with a friend. So we have about 6 months’ worth of grain-fed, hormone-free beef in our deep freezer.
My husband and children planted a garden this year.
I have stopped buying certain items that we really did not need.
We have a flock of chickens who are just starting to lay about 4 egss per day. That should increase as the younger chickens mature. We have 13 chickens right now, but my husband wants a few more. I can easily use half a dozen eggs at breakfast time.
I also try to make a monthly trip to Sam’s Club and Aldi’s. Both of these stores are close in proximity to one another, but they are about 30 mins away from my house. I try to plan several errands in that area. And I take a cooler and ice. Our Aldi’s has been the best place for eggs, milk, and baking ingredients. At Sam’s, I buy large bags of rice and flour and a few other items. Most of my Sam’s purchases are office supplies for my business.
I also read Money Saving Mom’s blog daily. She has the best resources listed, and I always find links to other bloggers who are saving money on various items.
How are you keeping your grocery costs down?
