It amazes me that I am kind of through with expensive curriculum. More and more I end up supplementing with materials that I buy from Barns and Noble and other sites. B&N has a great Education section. I am able to use my "Teacher" discount too. Then there is Youtube and educational websites that I use. I do "living" books and video's for history. Science I am going to do Apologia and a friend of mine is going to teach the lab. What ever is clever.
I'm with you! I used to spend hundreds on curriculum. I think I spent $100 this year, for two high school girls, and that included consumable supplies, like paper, etc. Used curriculum is a life saver, and using other resources, like you mentioned. Many homeschooling friends are happy to share. It can be overwhelming for those beginning, but homeschooling doesn't have to break the bank! Keep up the good work!

My husband unexpectedly announced, "We need new cookware" and brought home the Circulon Premier Professional 13-piece Hard-anodized Cookware Set. It's been a great investment!
