Hello Friends, and welcome to the very first Thrifty Thursday!
High inflation and the country’s current economic woes cause almost all of us to cut corners, and that includes our homeschool budgets. Since many of us are now looking for cheaper ways to homeschool, I am starting a new type of post here at Mama’s Learning Corner: Thrifty Thursday.
You can expect to see a list of homeschool freebies, deals, and discounts each week all wrapped up in a nice neat post each Thursday.
Like you, I need to make every dollar stretch! If you know of a greet freebie, homeschool deal, or discount, please make sure you leave it in the comments below!
Each Thursday, I will also list one of my products at $1. You won’t need a coupon, but you will have to take advantage of the discount quickly, as it will only be a $1 on Thursday until midnight Eastern!
Let’s get started with this week’s finds!

5.) Winter Cutting Practice Worksheets
My 5 year old boy loves to cut more than all of my other children combined. He would rather hold a pair of scissors than a pencil any day! I have printed out ALL of the cutting practice pages here at Mama’s Learning Corner, as I prepare his spring semester of Kindergarten.
He will love these!
