2018’s Must-Have School Supplies


As another school year approaches and summer days fade into the distance the debate begins again. What school supplies do you actually need to buy for the new school year? Are tablets required? Are children still required to bring what feels like 300 boxes of tissues? We’ve broken it down by school group for the must-have school supplies of 2018.


While you can hit your normal school supply haunts like Target, Walmart, Staples, and Office Max there are other stores offering great deals and exciting supplies this year. Buy the basics in bulk on Amazon or other online retailers like Discount School Supply to save yourself some time and money! Visit your favorite discount stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods to see what amazing deals you can scrounge up. Large discount stores, such as these are great for the older crowd with fun lamps, desk accessories, planners and more! Perhaps you prefer customized items for your student, like motivational pencils and monogrammed notebooks, a quick visit to Etsy and your cart will be overflowing with one of a kind supplies! This is a great way to support small businesses and find unique school supplies at the same time! If your schedule just doesn’t allow you the time to track down must have’s and sales, don’t fret, there are several pre-made school supply bundles online (we listed a few on the bottom of this post to give you a head start!)
