Having to purchase new school supplies every year is often not a very cheap undertaking. It often seems that a kid’s required school supply list seems to grow every year and yet many parents still find themselves having to replenish their kids’ stock of pens, pencils, crayons and other school supplies halfway through the school year.
Like it has for so many other products the growth in popularity of internet shopping has meant that a number of very good sites that sell discount school supplies have sprung up over the last several years, something that is good news for both parents and teachers.
Many of these sites offer especially great deals if you buy discount school supplies in bulk. Why not take advantage of those savings by getting together with other parents at back to school time so that you can all save money?
The sites offering cheap school supplies listed here are just a few of the many that are out there, but well worth keeping in mind when you next have to shop for school supplies. So when you feel overwhelmed with all your tasks (school, work, taking care of your kids, and so on), check out the below-listed websites and I’m sure you already will start feeling better!
Discount School Supplies at discountschoolsupply.com
This is a great site for parents and educators because it not only offers basic discount school supplies but a myriad of other kid-friendly items as well. The best discounts on basic school supplies can be found here if you buy in bulk, great for parents with more than one child in school or just to make sure you have the extras your children inevitably need on hand. And in case you work from home, make your kids feel useful and appreciated by helping you with your work!
Discount School Supplies at dollardays.com
This is a site that sells hundreds of different kinds of low priced products of all kinds but they tend to carry a wide range of discount school supplies all year long not just during the summer back to school shopping season. Again this is a site that is best for bulk buys but there are deals on individual smaller purchases as well. Many of those who sell school supplies on auction sites like eBay get their wholesale supplies here so you may score a far better deal buying directly here than bidding on eBay.

Discount School Supplies at edushop.edu4kids.com
This site is a great place to head to find discount school supplies, especially those needed for those inevitably school projects that are often more of a test of a parents imagination and wallet than they are a kid’s intelligence. At this site, you will find all kinds of supplies at very reasonable prices that will help your child (or more likely you) create that scale model of the galaxy or that detailed model of a volcano.
So now after you’ve found the right school for your child, it’s time to get all the supplied together, and, please, at an affordable price! There are plenty of offline destinations for discount school supplies as well but those deals tend to only appear for those few summer weeks before the kids head back to school for the year. Stores like Target and Walmart offer some amazing deals and discount school supplies but make sure you grab them right away as these deals tend to disappear very quickly.
