Some of the most popular items that we see on nearly every school supply list:

Pencils: Mechanical or #2

For standardized tests and fill-in-the-blank assignments, you can't go wrong with classic wooden pencils. For note taking, math problems, and carrying around in your backpack, many students prefer the retraction of a mechanical pencil. No matter your preference, we carry a variety of brands and styles, so you're sure to find the perfect pencil for your needs. Don't forget your pencil accessories like erasers and pencil sharpeners!


Whether you're taking notes in class or jotting down a grocery list, pens are a must-have for any student. From ballpoint to gel to felt tip, we have all the varieties you need to get the job done. And you don't even have to worry about pens being more permanent than pencils with a selection of erasable pens to choose from in a wide array of colors that you can use to express your personality while writing or doodling in your notebook.


Brighten up your notes and make important information stand out when studying with a set of highlighters. Choose from classic yellow or mix things up with fun fluorescents to color code your work. Either way, you'll be able to find what you need at Staples.
