Supplies and Necessities
We’ll start with the basics. Local stores have some great deals on back to school supplies once a year and that’s a great time to stock up. But if you don’t feel like fighting crowds then school supply shopping online  is a fantastic option. You can get everything you need and nothing you don’t, delivered right to your door, without navigating congested supermarket aisles

Whether you’re looking for this cute clock  at $21.97 to teach telling time, or flashcards to learn math facts , ($24.84) you can find what meets your needs. I think this inexpensive globe  at $19.99 makes a great addition to any schoolroom.

Educational posters like these  ($19.99 for 8 large posters) are a great visual tool for younger learners. And multiplication charts like  ($11.99 for 2 large) are hugely helpful to my kids.

There are also lots of options for kits targeting specific age groups like preschool  ($18.95 for 11) or elementary . ($17.88 for 12)
Organization and Furniture
I’m all about conserving space, so I love finding items that give me storage options without taking up a ton of floor space! There are so many options here, the sky really is the limit and it’s all up to your taste. We love folder organizers like this one  or this one  because they are inexpensive (both are under $12!) and make such good use of space. My daughter uses this organizer cart  ($39.99) for storing her art supplies and it would work great for school supplies! And this desk organizer  is a great find for $20.88!
When it comes to desks, there are a lot of options at quite a varied price range. This one  at $99.96 is a good option for younger learners.
And this is one is compact and reasonably priced  at $43.15.
Games are a great way to reinforce new skills! You can find a ton of great options here and all for under $25! Game of States  and The World Game  reinforce geography, while letter matching  and word-play  help reading skills. And there are lots of fun math games too, like this one  and this one !
Hands-on, creative learning is vital to young brains and there are lots of options when it comes to arts and crafts. There are plenty of learning opportunities here, from this wooden robot kit  for $34.99 to these wildlife  and aquatic craft  kits, both of which are only $10.99. I love kits like this one , where, at only $29.99, it comes with LOTS of supplies we can use for different crafts. The imaginative possibilities are endless!
