      Thank you so much for posting this! We are going to Florida in two weeks and wanted to work LEGOLAND into the budget- this is a huge discount! Hope it works for out of state homeschoolers too!

    If you homeschool and are a HSLDA member you get an Office Depot discount card. I used it once when purchasing ink and if I remember it saving me something like $10 total. Just a reminder to HSLDA members that you get member discounts at various places.
