We have been homeschooling for over three years, and I have included our supplies for homeschooling checklist of what we purchased before we started. Everything included is exactly what we have in our homeschooling room.

Although this is a fairly long list, we had a number of these items in the house before we started to homeschool.

Not all of these items are crucial to getting before you start, you can just get them as and when you need them. We waited a while before getting the guillotine and laminator, however, I probably use these the most.
