Homeschool order savings

I finally found the purchase order forms I need to order school materials thorough my homeschool program. Originally I planned to order from 4 companies. However, when I got to comparing prices, it turned out I could get many of the items I needed 10 to 30 percent cheaper on Rainbow Resource. That meant I didn’t have an order with Sonlight this year and the Veritas Press and Winter Promise orders were much smaller than originally planned. I didn’t figure it exactly, but I think I saved about $20. Even though I’m not directly paying for these items, it’s always nice to save money so I can buy other things later. So here’s how it turned out. Mostly this is so I can re-do the orders if they get lost. The abbreviation in parenthesis is the content standards the item will be used for.
