School Supplies

The back-to-school season is upon us, which means that it's time to start stocking up on supplies! Whether you are shopping for the new school year, a changing class schedule, or a fresh semester, school shopping can be a hassle. And with so many options available, it can be hard to know where to start.

Preparing to shop for school supplies

  • Make a list: Before heading to the store, check if your child's teacher has provided a school supply list with suggested and required items. If they haven't provided a list, sit down with your child and make a one of all the supplies they'll need for the upcoming school year. This will help you stay focused while shopping and avoid forgetting anything important.

  • Compare prices: Take advantage of store sales and compare prices online to get the best deals on school supplies.

Making the most of back to school season

  • Shop early: Avoid the rush and shop for school supplies early. This way you'll have plenty of time to find the best deals and get everything on your list.

  • Stock up: Once you've found the perfect supplies, stock up so you're prepared for the entire school year. This will save you time and money in the long run.

Help the whole class get ready for the school year

Buy some extra supplies. If you are able to buy an extra set of school pencils, pack of washable markers, or sheath of paper, consider picking up duplicates of items on your list to donate to the classroom. Your child's teacher will appreciate having these bonus items on hand. And don't forget to contribute some cleaning supplies like Clorox disinfecting wipes and Kleenex facial tissues as well to help make sure the classroom is clean and healthy all school year long. With these tips in mind, shopping for back to school supplies doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a little planning and the help of Staples, you can make it a breeze.
