School Supplies on a Budget

The same scenario happens every school year. Students send in school supplies in the fall, and they pretty much run out by winter break. If your school doesn't have a supply room, it can put you in a dilemma. You can either ask students to bring in more supplies, create a wish-list to share with parents, or purchase additional supplies on your own. If this has happened to you in the past, you probably have learned that the back-to-school season is the best time to stock up for the year. If you missed the fall sales or need more later in the school year, Amazon is a great place to check. They offer a wide variety of supplies at great prices all year long. 

Below we have created a list of budget-friendly school supplies available on Amazon with our suggestions for teachers. This site is updated daily, but prices and availability are subject to change at any time. As always, happy teaching!
