My Picks: Back-to-School Supplies

“Back to school. Back to school…” Any Billy Madison fans here?

I am so excited for my kids to go back to school! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE having them home all summer and we have a blast getting into trouble, vacationing, and just enjoying one another’s company, but this tired momma needs a few hours in the day to get stuff done!

And if your kids are anything like mine, back-to-school shopping is a real crowd pleaser – each kid loves stocking up on their favorites and it makes going back to school a fun adventure!

What makes it fun for me is trying to find the best deals on the things they need the most and sometimes turns into a game to see how low I can get them to go on prices! I’ve put together a little breakdown of pricing in each store we frequent and what to look for!

Target is always one of my favorite places to stop – duh, it’s Target – and they price match their competitors up to 14 days after purchase, although some restrictions apply.

The 10 best deals: 

Target also has an awesome program called “School List Assist” where you can search class supply lists by zip code and school name that teachers have uploaded. If your child’s teacher has uploaded their list, you can add all the listed supplies to your cart for local in-store pickup or get it shipped straight to your home!

SHOP MORE TARGET DEALS

Walmart has been updating their back-to-school deals almost every week this month and they keep getting better! Like Target, they too have a standard price matching policy for identical items from select stores.

The 10 best deals:

Amazon has the same school-supply staples as the big-box stores at its Back to School site but depending on where you plan to shop, you can get everything you need in one spot! You won’t see any types of notebooks in here because they ARE NOT less expensive on Amazon. In fact, there is 2-4x’s the markup!

The 10 Best Deals:

For the college bound, check out the College Bookstore, where you can buy new and used textbooks for less than the campus bookstore prices. Also, students get a free, six-month trial of Amazon Prime and then a 50 percent discount on Prime when the trial expires.

And now for the fun stuff! These are NECESSITIES but they’re cute, fun, and will make your student’s school year infinitely better!
