Do I Have to Purchase Anything Else?
With SchoolhouseTeachers.com you only need a computer or tablet with internet access and a printer (IF you want to print the materials).
All of the textbooks, videos, schedules, planners, worksheets, tests, quizzes, and anything else required to complete a course is provided on the site! You do NOT have to buy additional textbooks or workbooks.
You can read everything online, download it to your computer to access, or print the materials. Most everything that I found was not graphic heavy so it didn't require a lot of ink, but it was formatted well and professional in appearance.
You'll then see a page of resources to help you begin homeschooling with SchoolhouseTeachers.com. There are so many helpful resources including articles, charts, and videos.
After you've read through all of those helpful resources, you'll want to click on "How to Use SchoolhouseTeachers.com."
Here you'll find LOADS of help for planning, recordkeeping, organization, and more!
Or if you're more of a Dive Right In person (like me!) you can click on "Course List" which takes you to a series of pages to help you determine what to teach and points you to the courses and resources for planning.
What We Use
I have used a variety of things from SchoolhouseTeachers.com so far and we have loved all of it. There is so much available that I've had no problem finding great content for my kids, and even myself!
My daughter has been working through the Starting a Micro Business (for Teens) course. She has learned so much about not only starting a small business but also about her own gifts and talents and what she is best suited for. It has been an eye-opening process for her! She went into the course with one business idea in mind and has been surprised to learn that she is better suited for a different idea that she had toyed with but not pursued seriously.
I have personally found MANY useful things on the SchoolhouseTeachers.com website. Like the monthly menu plan, where I've found quite a few easy and tasty recipes for my family including an Easy Peach Cobbler and Classic Chicken Casserole—YUM! I enjoy meal planning and the monthly menu has provided several new recipes to try.

Why Do I Think It's Cost-Effective?
This is by far the most cost-effective way I've found to homeschool without having to do a lot of searching for free products, organizing them, and then scheduling them out for myself. I've never seen such a quality product at this price that is this quick and easy to use.
You can homeschool ALL of your children in ALL grades and ALL subjects for ONE LOW PRICE!
That alone is worth the price, but you also get tons of helpful planning and scheduling resources, a scope and sequence, printable planners for everyone, helpful videos, access to RightNow Media, World Book Online, and Applecore Electronic Record Keeping, AND a subscription to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.
