It is an expensive and stressful time for everyone. Here is a list of web sites offering discounted crayons, backpacks, pencils, etc. Take the headache out of educational needs with back to class supplies savings.
Discount School Supply-This web site has everything from crayons to construction paper to curriculum. They also offer infant and toddler supplies and products for special needs children. They offer a 110% guarantee, a wide selection, and fast shipping. Orders over $99 are shipped free.
Oriental Trading-This company offers backpacks and totes, crayons, pencils, and pens, etc. You can also start thinking ahead about the upcoming holidays and order early. It looks like they have shipping promotions fairly regularly.
Classroom Direct-They offer everything from cleaning supplies to educational technology, furniture, physical education needs and resources for children with special needs. They offer free shipping on all orders $49 or more.
Dollar Days-If you are looking to really break down your budget, this is the site for you. You can choose from price options like price per piece, case price and case pack.
They also sell school uniforms as far as pants (khaki & black) and polo shirts in various colors. The only downside to this web site I noticed was you couldn’t see some of the prices unless you had an account and were logged in.
National School Supply-This web site has offerings for just about every kind you would find in a school. There are specific sections for math, music, science, and social studies classrooms, etc.
