Welcome to #breakthrulinkup 32!

It’s “bundle season” again, friends 🙂

You may have started to see emails from your favorite homeschool bloggers talking about it, and I just wanted to weigh in with you – my homeschooling high school peeps – to answer the question:

Is the current Build Your Bundle (BYB) good for homeschooling high schoolers?

Well, the answer is an unequivocal “yes” and “no!”


  • you’ve already gotten the coming year (or high school years!) planned out, and
  • you’ve already decided on the resources you’ll need to implement that plan, and
  • you’ve already purchased those resources and have them waiting in the wings, then, of course, the answer is “No.”

(And if that’s the case, then kudos to you as well, dear mama! We definitely need to talk…)

IF, however:

  • you’re still working on your teen’s high school plan, or
  • you’re either searching for or at least trying to decide on your resources, or
  • you’re sweatin’ about the fact that you will have to make some purchases and you’re worried about the dent it may/will make in your budget…then the answer is “Yes, Virginia, it’s time to take a look at the #byb2018!

There are some great resources for high school homeschoolers (and middle schoolers!) in this year's Build Your Bundle *Homeschool Edition*!

What’s inside the Build Your Bundle for high schoolers?

The beauty of that question is that there are a bunch of resources! This year (the 5th year BYB is being offered) there are not one, but TWO different bundles available. Both are great financial values; the personal value to your family will lie in knowing what your own needs are.

We’re currently working on these materials in our own homeschool and they come highly recommended!

The happy-wallet news is that either of these bundles is a “whopping”…$39!!

The even-cooler thing is that you have the option of building your own bundle for that same price!

What that means is exactly what it sounds like: do you see some products that you could definitely use, but others not-so-much? Well then, choose up to 5 (with no price cap) for $39 or up to 15 with their “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” plan! Use this handy shopping list to plan your purchases and track your savings, and find a listing of all the products available here (there are even 3 science courses that count as full credit courses!).

Check out the Upper Grades Bundles for yourself!

Resources for writing, science, literature, critical thinking, life skills…and MORE!

So, will you do me a favor?

If you ARE a homeschooler: take a look through the products being offered and see if any could be of use to you in the coming year. If so, BUY NOWbecause this sale only lasts for ONE week! By next week’s #breakthrulink up…it’ll all be gone!

If you’re NOT a homeschooler: please consider sharing this post using any of the tools to the left with any homeschoolers you know. Seriously, considering the quality and price of these products, you will be blessing them and their kiddos!
