What is a Grab Bag?
Grab Bag sales are unlike any other sale that I’ve seen. It’s a no-nonsense sale where you don’t have to pick and choose what you want to get, or miss out. You don’t have to strategize to get the best deal and you definitely don’t have to spend hours shopping.
You get everything Grab Bag has to offer for ONE LOW PRICE. And to top that, it’s sent to you via a beautiful Digital Workbook where each of the over 60 products is showcased so that your decisions on what you want to claim are easy.
The Grab Bag is formatted like an online catalog. It categorizes resources based on content area, then gives you an image and description of the product, the publisher, and the value. Then, all you do is “click here to claim” and you are automatically directed to the place to download the item for FREE! Yes, it’s that easy.
The good thing about this kind of format is that you’re not required to download ALL the resources in one big file in order to sift through it and get what you want. You can pick and choose and download only what you will use. Yes – you do have to grab your items by October 16th, but that gives you plenty of time to see what you want.
The Homeschool Grab Bag is on sale until July 16th at midnight. Don’t wait to claim your digital homeschool resources at 97% off!
Is It Worth It?
The Homeschool Grab Bag has 60 products that span from K-12. It looks like there are more resources geared for the elementary ages, but there are definitely enough products in the Grab Bag for the middle and high schoolers to make the purchase pay for itself!
It’s a common question to ask: “Is it worth it for me to buy this?” You definitely don’t want to be stuck with extra resources that you won’t use. Let me tell you how the grab bag layout will keep you from downloading resources you don’t need. Plus – here are my favorite picks for each age group.
Okay – the pricing. You can’t go wrong with the pricing!! You will get the entire grab bag full of 60 homeschool products for only $27.95.
If you take a look at what’s inside and decide that you would even use 2-3 resources, then it’s already paid for itself!
Oh, and if you downloaded the FREE Teaser Bag, there’s a $5 off coupon in there too.

How to Organize Your Homeschool Digital Resources
Part of the challenge of acquiring so many digital resources is in organizing them so that you know what you have and actually use them!
You need to be able to see what you have for each grade level and each content area at a minimum.
Is the history product you downloaded appropriate for K-4 or 9-12? Is the printable pack for math only or does it include science as well?
While you may not have an immediate use for some digital resources, you need to organize them so that you will be able to find them when the time is right. Kind of like your physical library in your home, filled with books spanning many levels.
There are many ways to organize your digital resources, but my favorite way is to use Trello.
Check out these videos for an inside peek into how Trello works well for this task. Bonus: Trello is free!
Now that you have all your digital resources organized on Trello, how do you go about sharing the links with your kids? Here’s Trello to the rescue again!
