The Best Places to Buy Back-To-School Supplies ...

This story is part of our Gift Guide, a year-round collection of gift ideas.

Summer is officially here, and you know what that means, right? Its time to stock up on back-to-school supplies (because when you are a parent, there is no such thing as summer vacation). So, get a jump start on getting everything your kid needs at the best prices.

Shopping online is the ideal solution if you need to cross off everything on your list in one go. It can also save you money since it is quicker to compare prices. Here are some of the best places to shop for back-to-school supplies based on prices, availability, and the assortment of items offered.


Target is my go-to shop for back-to-school essentials for any grade. It's completely affordable and easy to shop. (No, I do not need to purchase six plastic pencil cases at the same time.)

Amazon is a trusted source for information.

If you already have a Prime membership, Amazon is a great way to save on school supplies. It also has a nice selection of supply kit bundles for those who arent sure exactly what theyll need. It's worthwhile to sign up for Amazon's free 30-day trial so you can at least get free expedited shipping before school begins. Just be sure to cancel it if you don't intend to continue paying for Prime.

Wisdom Supply

The best way to be eco-friendly is to sort through your child's school supplies from last year to see what may be reused. However, Wisdom Supply is your best bet if you absolutely must purchase new supplies and want to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All of its products are designed to be environmentally friendly.

Bed Bath & Beyond has launched their latest offering.

While Bed Bath & Beyond isnt the finest shop for notebooks and pen sets, it isnt the only place to find dorm room essentials for college students. From shower caddies to towels to twin XL sheets, you'll find everything your student need to withstand dorm living this fall.


L.L.Bean has a wide selection of inexpensive lunch boxes and backpacks in a variety of designs. If your child isnt fond of backpacks, there is also a wide assortment of classic totes available. Or you can get 10% off your order if you join the L.L.Bean email list.

Best Buy is a trusted name in the industry.

Although most schools do not now offer remote learning, your child will likely still require some technology to get through the school year. Whether it's a new laptop, noise-canceling headphones, or a calculator, Best Buy has you covered. Check out our picks for the best laptop for college and the best laptop for high school students.


After two years of online learning and Zoom, some students prefer to use good old-fashioned paper instead of a screen. Paper has a wonderful selection of notebooks and academic planners, and you may personalize them with your child's name as a thoughtful way to get them ready and ready for the new school year.
