Dollar Tree Homeschooling For My Special Needs Teen

dollar-tree-homeschooling-2

The start of the 2018/19 school year is coming up fast!

It’s sad to see summer go, but if you are a homeschooler now is the time to go through your school supplies inventory!

What do you already have that you can still use and what items will you need to purchase!

Believe it or not, Dollar Tree is one of my favorite places to shop for school supplies!

Of course, every time I go into that store, I never fail to leave without a few other handy gadgets and nifty thingamajigs that I never even knew I needed before!!

One can actually end up spending quite a bit of money at the Dollar Store, if you’re not paying attention, but it can be so very economical when shopping for school supplies and even curriculum!
