I’ve gathered in one spot my favorite resources for living a Charlotte Mason lifestyle.  These are not limited to homeschooling, because Charlotte Mason did not limit her recommendations to education only.

Original Charlotte Mason Works

It goes without saying that Charlotte Mason’s own volumes are top on my list.  They can be purchased through Living Book Press and Simply Charlotte Mason

If you want to discuss in an inclusive group with knowledgeable leaders, where all faiths are welcome, The Charlotte Mason Plenary is excellent.

Wildwood Curriculum, an inclusive strict Charlotte Mason curriculum that I create, along with several other talented people

Grocery Budget Boot Camp , an 8 week course teaching families step-by-step how to eat healthy food for less money, from Don’t Waste the Crumbs.  I thought I was a frugal shopper and meal planner, but I’ve saved hundreds of dollars each month by using the techniques I learned with this course.
