Ok, so maybe I am a tightwad, or maybe just thrifty and poor. But why, when you finally find the books that are recommended, are they so expensive? I am trying to find Thornton Burgess' books(and others) for my 6 and almost 5 yr olds. They are not to be found other than 1-2 places and they are like $14!!! I also am looking for the Moody videos for 106 days of creation. Found them, but they are $6 pls shipping! By the time I get all of the resources, I am broke and depressed! Yet alot of them I can't buy at all because they cost too much and I don't have the money. I had hopes that with CM I could homeschool in a way that would work with our family AND be more affordable. It has worked out better with our family situation, but not the finances. What am I missing?
ps. we live in a very rural area, so the library has very few of these resources.
