Library Book Sales
Scholastic Book Orders
Another great place to grab books is a yard sale. Oftentimes, they are selling books that their grown kids don’t read anymore. Sometimes, you’ll hit the jackpot and stumble upon a yard sale of a former teacher!
Once you find books at a yard sale, make sure they are in good condition and aren’t smelly or moldy from being in a basement.
Also, don’t be afraid to bargain! Most people are willing to give you a better price if you explain that they are for a classroom. I purchased over 40 hardcover books for less than $15. This set is worth over $400!
On bookoutlet.com, you can purchase books are super bargain prices! While they aren’t as cheap as a library book sale, these books are brand new. You can often find them for more than 75% off!
And you can browse the whole Book Outlet section of books from the comfort of your couch (or your teacher’s chair)!
