Are You A Homeschool Hoarder?

You might be if :

  1. You get a library card to save money on books and then come home from said library, with books you bought from the library book sale section.

  2. You have bookmarked 400,000 websites in your computer's favorites, in case they might be useful at some point.

  3. Instead of presents, you have asked friends and family to give your child gift cards to Staples and Michael's Crafts for holidays and birthdays.

  4. You no longer have a dining room table or a dining room, for that matter. All those supplies have to go somewhere!

  5. There is never anything to put out in the recycle bin because you may need that doohickey, thingamabob, or whatnot someday for some as of yet, un-named science project.

  6. You stock up on blank notebooks, just in case the entire world decides to go "paperless".

  7. You finally have a reason to hang on to your parent's thirty year collection of National Geographic magazines.

  8. You child doesn't understand why the telephone pictures in his textbooks, have really long cords attached.

  9. All of the photos, on all the walls and doors around your home have been replaced with charts, posters and diagrams.

  10. You have three plastic leaf bags full of empty toilet paper and paper towels rolls in your garage because... well, just because.

Oh, that's funny. I think a lot of that falls under the category of just having kids in your house. I always hung onto art supplies for all of their projects. Have I ever told you that I'm the Queen of Dioramas? I ROCK at those things!
