After teaching for over 10 years, I have learned lot of tips and tricks for saving money while stocking up on classroom supplies and materials. In addition to my local dollar stores, garage sales & thrift stores, Amazon is also one of my favorite places to shop. They have a wide-variety of supplies and materials for the classroom at great prices. Many of their items are available with free shipping, and if you have an Amazon Prime account, you can get fast, 2-day shipping on lots of items in addition to other perks.

Below we created a list of budget-friendly classroom supplies and materials 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!
