It’s back to school time! I love getting the kids (and myself as their teacher) ready for school with the right supplies! I shop at specific stores for different back-to-school items. It’s helpful to know where to buy your school supplies so you get the best deals, and find what you need. Here are my favorite stores for school supplies. If you know where to look you’ll find some really fun things!
Back to School Shopping By Store
Dollar Store – I love the dollar store especially for homeschool. They have a lot of great resources, especially for younger ages. Here are a few things I like to buy at the dollar store:
- Educational Flashcards (Mathematics, reading, letters)
- Rewards Stickers
- Sticker Charts
- Dr. Seuss Learning Activities
- Poster Boards
- Dry Erase Markers
- Fun Erasers
Target – Target is a little more pricy but they have a lot of cute things. A lot of these things are not necessarily needed but are fun to brighten up your learning space.

Walmart – This is my go-to store for all my regular back-to-school supplies.

Amazon – I love to get some of the bulk items for back to school from amazon because they have really good deals on some of the multipack items. Tip: If you need a lot of it then buy on amazon. This is my go-to store for office supplies as well.
