I know, I know, most of our kids have already started school. I get it, you’ve already done most of your shopping, am I right? Well, if you are anything like me, you passed up on some if the things that weren’t specifically “necessary” at the time, since you were already spending so much on other stuff.


“I don’t need to buy pencils and pens, we have a ton at home.”

“I just bought a bunch of crayons, so we’ll skip on the colored pencils.”

“I can pass up the Fruit of The Loom underwear, they’re already wearing it right now!”


I said this so many times to so many different things! Now that all of the school supplies are on sale, it is the PERFECT time to grab everything you need, or will need for school this year, and maybe even next year. At Walmart, there are tons of back to school supplies and displays out, and they need to figure out where to put it all. Slashing already prices is normally what happened, and I am there to pick up the pieces!



I am thinking ahead about what I can use for my home office, what items are hard to find, or usually pricey, and what we could use year round. Here are the top items i’m going back for…


5 Back To School Supplies to Buy Now


Notebooks, Paper and Folders – When it comes to paper, we see to always run out. It’s good to have paper at home for projects and general use. Also, grab a couple of folders to house that paper because they tend to rip and tear mid-year.


Markers, Crayons and Colored Pencils – They are not this cheap and plentiful year round.


Glue – For some reason, I am always looking for a glue stick at home and I can never find one! Walmart has rolled back prices on lots of glue, time to stock up!


Specialty Supplies – Printed duct tape, post it notes, flash drives, and stuff made specifically for the BTS season are usually marked up. They won’t be available too much longer, so grab your favorites at a great price.


Underwear – Kids never stop growing, so stock up on undies for this year, and in a size up for next year! Fruit of The Loom bonus packs are available at Walmart, there are extra pairs of undies at the same price! Bonus packs are available at Walmart for boys and girls, as well as men and women. I will be buying a pack for now and a pack one size up for next year.
