I have no idea what to do with it but it's getting larger and larger.

I don't have anything yet that is "done-done" ... meaning, if it's reusable, Daniel's not using it yet. That's the stuff I keep for later. After he's done with it in a few years, things like Apologia that are still in good shape... I'll either (1) sell or (2) give to family/friends who need it. Stuff I'm done with that is consumable is in large envelopes by subject. I'll keep everything for at least 2-3 years in case I ever need proof of work for whatever reason.

well, I will be using some of it for my younger kids. Even if I don't use a certain subject again, I could use a portion or something like that from it....

I keep it to reuse with younger kids as well. Since I'm pregnant and expecting twins, I'll be holding onto some of this stuff for quite a while. LOL If I use something for a while and we decide to try something different, I evaluate whether that same curriculum might work for one of my younger kids. If it might, I hang onto it. If it won't work for any kiddos I have already, I sell it to help pay for costs of what WILL work.


Another option is to box it up and send it to Book Samaritan, who gives curricula to homeschooling families who can't afford to purchase their own.

Well, like others have said, donate it, or list it on here and tell us what you have I don't really have much to get rid of right now either, have 2 more to save it all for, once I am done with it, I plan on selling what I can, the rest I will donate.

In the past before we had our second son, I used to swap our curriculum at our local Homeschool support group's Annual Curriculum/Book swap. I got many great deals on materials and books for our homeschooling. Now I pretty much keep it to save for my younger child.

We have a huge curriculum sale but honestly I don't know how to price everything. I have no idea what's complete or anything like that. I really don't know if it's worth a $25 table.

Go to Used homeschool curriculum, and homeschool groups, events, and activities and see what the prices look like for similar items, and go to each item's website to find out if it's a complete set or a piece of it. Anything that has writing, etc. will have to be discounted (let the first link be your guide). Anything in unused condition should get a good return. If you can't find something, ask. We can help you search.

One thing I also do is scan our workbooks so that I can print what we need and the book is on a CD for later use.

I have been wanting to try using laminating sheets over the workbook pages to use with an erasable marker but with my older son's sensory isssues that has been out of the question.
