Back to School Essential Shopping List

School is almost here! If you’re making a last minute supply run (like we are), having a list on hand is more than helpful. It’s easy to forget some of the essentials in a rush, especially as some of us return to school in-person for the first time in a year. Now, different teachers and classes require different sets of supplies, but there are some staples that you know you’ll need once that first school bell rings. Below is our list of some essential back to school supplies.

  • #2 Pencils
  • Pens
  • Crayons
  • Spiral Notebook
  • Erasers
  • Highlighters
  • Protractor
  • Rule
  • Pencil case
  • Glue Sticks
  • Back-up Shirt
  • Wet wipes
  • Tissues
  • Masks

And a backpack to put it all in! Now, this list contains items for all ages, so feel free to adapt it to your family’s needs and use what applies to you.
