Homeschool How-to’s: Free While They Last

While unpacking from our recent move, I found a box of homeschooling booklets we used to sell for $5 each at homeschool conventions. (They later became part of my book The Imperfect Homeschooler’s Guide to Homeschooling.)

I don’t have room to keep these here, so I’m offering them FREE on a first-come, first-served basis. Just send me a self-addressed business (4 1/8″ X 9 1/2″) envelope stamped with TWO first-class stamps, and I’ll send you a booklet. THIS OFFER IS ONLY GOOD WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. You can request a specific title and if we still have copies left, you’ll get it. Otherwise, it’s potluck. 🙂

The booklets are:

115 Organizing Tips for Homeschoolers

Need help getting organized? This 34-page booklet is packed full of proven ideas for:

  • Getting your homeschool organized

  • Running your home
  • Living (and homeschooling) with small children
  • Keeping up your energy

Learn to handle the many responsibilities and challenges that come with being a homeschool mom.

Covering All the Bases

Do you ever ask yourself:

  • How do I know if we’re studying the right subjects at the right times?
  • Are we covering all the bases?
  • What are the bases anyway?
  • Are we using the right materials?
  • Are my kids doing OK?

This 30-page booklet includes information about curriculum choices, Scope and Sequence, and achievement testing, as well as tips for designing your own curriculum.

Overcoming Obstacles to Homeschooling

Do you struggle when it comes to homeschooling? Are there obstacles in your way? This 30-page booklet covers topics including:

  • Defeating the habits that keep you from working with your children
  • Dealing with relatives’ disapproval
  • Thriving despite personal or financial difficulties

Discover the personal habits and traits that may be holding you back, and learn how to eliminate them. Don’t let obstacles keep you from homeschooling!


Just send your SASE (remember, you’ll need two 44-cent stamps on your SASE because these booklets are big) to:

  1. Barbara- I am sure that you will get a huge response to this. I will be sending my envelope! Would you consider sending me more than the allotted amount if you do have enough? I am planning a Homeschool Seminar in November for our County Homeschoolers and would love to include some of your materials for our new Homeschoolers! I will pay shipping costs for them. Thanks for considering it 🙂

  2. You’re welcome, Tabitha 🙂

    Hey Julie, you’re just up the highway a ways! If you send three SASEs with two stamps on each, I’ll try to send you one of each title.

    MeritK, I will email you about this.

    Thanks, everyone!

  3. I would love to have a copy of each one also I am my daughter this year in kindergarten and it is harder than I thought. I need all the help I can get.

  4. Barbara,

    I’m still reading “See! I Told Me So!” which I ordered from the Imperfect Homeschooler. It has been such a blessing for the start to our homeschooling this year.
    I’m sending three envelopes because I’m hoping you’ll have one of each booklet left. I can use all the encouragement I can get.

  5. Hi Barbara,
    I’d love to get your booklets, as I’m embarking on the homeschooling journey with my 3 girls, the oldest being 5. I’m in Ontario, Canada. I was afraid that by the time the enveloppe gets to you it will be too late. Could you put a set of booklets aside for me, and I’ll mail you a big enveloppe with the necessary stamps? Or could I just pay you through your website and you send it to me directly?
    God bless,

  6. Thanks, ladies. Get your SASE’s on their way quickly, as we’re getting a lot of email about this offer.

    Lisa, I emailed you re: your question.

  7. I’m sending 2 envelopes but it’s coming from Seattle area so it will get there as soon as the mail travels. I would like the 115 tips and overcoming obstacles booklets if you still have. Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

  8. Barbara,
    I’m sending three SASEs from FL, if supplies are still available. Could you set aside a set for my family as well? I so appreciate your generousity. Blessings to you in your new endeavor!

  9. Tracy, all three booklets are now part of my book The Imperfect Homeschooler’s Guide to Homeschooling, which is available in print and also as an eBook. You can learn more about it HERE.
