Have you done your back to school shopping for the kids yet? I have to admit Back to School shopping is one of my favorites. I love buying fresh boxes of crayons and markers and notebooks. I loved it as a kid, and I still love doing it as a mom.
One of my favorite places to get our school supplies is Office Depot (and OfficeMax).
Right now through 8/14/21, you can save up to 55% off the best-selling school supplies at both Office Depot and Office Max!
What’s on our back to school supplies lists?
With four kids, it can get expensive, and that’s why I always wait for the awesome deals for back to school shopping that Office Depot has. Here’s a few of our favorites we get every year:
Cute Backpack with Lunchbox
Most years each kid gets a brand new backpack and a new lunchbox. They usually love it when they can find a set that comes together, so their lunchbox matches their backpack.
My 11 year old daughter thought this Unicorn Donut backpack with lunchbox was so cute. I loved how the lunchbox fits right in the front of the backpack, so there’s less chance she’ll leave her lunchbox at school.
The BEST #2 Pencils
With so many kids, we have been through our fair share of pencils. For my younger kids, our teachers beg for Ticonderoga Pencils, so that’s what I always get. Plus, when I can find the pre-sharpened ones, it’s even better because we don’t have to worry about having a sharpener to get them ready.
For my older kids, they love mechanical pencils. In fact, both my high schooler and my college age kid use these Paper Mate Mechanical Pencils in 0.7 mm lead size are their absolutely favorite. They use them for just about every class they have. They have tried them in sizes 0.5, 0.7, and 0.9 mm lead, and both love the 0.7 mm ones.
Our Favorite Crayons
There’s not much mystery in why Crayola crayons are the absolute best crayons. You can’t got wrong with them. They color beautifully compared to so many other brands. They are my go-to brand every school year. In fact, with such an amazing price, I stock up on a few boxes to keep at home, too.
Have you seen the new Crayola Colors of the World crayons? I love making sure each kid has a box of these at home and at school.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to try to get marker stains out of my kids’ clothes. It’s a nightmare if you don’t have Crayola Washable Markers, which is why I pay the additional cost for them. Crayola Washable Markers are truly the best because they don’t stain my kids’ clothes or other things like the furniture and the walls.
No Leak Water Bottle
It’s also important for kids to have a water bottle at their desk and to take out to recess to keep hydrated. When I’m looking for a good water bottle for the kids, I want to make sure it has a few things:
- no leaks
- no sweating
- hygienic lid
- easy to label
- easy to clean
I love these water bottles. You can get it in Mickey Mouse print or in a cute princess print.
It doesn’t leak and doesn’t sweat from cold water. Plus, it has a lid to keep the straw hygienic. It’s easy to take apart and wash, AND it’s dishwasher safe!
