    I'm not purging, but I'm cleaning and arranging so I can (hopefully) find things a little easier.  I haven't been doing this long enough to purge just yet!

    I'll probably use eBay, but there's a local used curriculum sale going on next month.  If you sell things you can buy a day earlier.  I'm just thinking I'll get more on eBay, and I've got 99% of next year's books anyhow.  

    Do you keep Missie's books to use again?  I think I'll keep most of Haley's.  There are a few things that wouldn't work as well for Elyssa.

    I will be keeping Missie's books. Lol Saves me from having to rebuy Cole books.

    My school area is in desperate need of a clean up.

    Plus it has to make lesson planning easier!  One of the only things I'll swap out is the history/social studies.  Elyssa has paid as much or more attention than Haley, so I'll get her something fresh for her 6th grade. :)

    Sorta...

    I reorganize 2-4 times per year. Get rid of anything not working, donate some, put some away for lil sibs....

    I will be going through and getting rid of stuff we used already or don't like.  Plus I need to re-organize everything.

    I don't sell anything, because I still have another younger child, but I do switch things out and only keep out the grades for the year we'll be in (except when I'm lesson planning and need stuff out for that).

    I purge in the school area, but the storage area becomes more cluttered ;) lol 
    I haven't gotten to cleaning the school area out yet and next years stuff has already arrived :/ Maybe next week when I'm suddenly free I'll tackle that mess... or sleep...haven't decided lol

    Since we just moved, I have been purging a ton of stuff! However, for us, that means returning most to the charter school we use. I have a few things I have bought to take to our park day curriculum swap.

    I also realized I am hoarding art supplies...lol We need to do a huge art lesson either as a summer activity or next fall.
