 Navigating School Supply Shopping Successfully

Let’s face it…school supply shopping is not always the easiest thing, is it? I mean it feels like a crazy scavenger hunt throughout the store and although it is fun (I really LOVE school supply shopping) we spend a lot of time making certain that we have everything that we need.

Target simplifies school supply shopping by carrying all the national brands families look for and they are all available at a great value. This year, Target has a new tool that will help parents shop the supply list—School List Assist. An online destination built specifically to make finding the exact supply as easy as 1-2-3.

This year we did a little school supply shopping both in-store and online. I love doing it this way because I can get some great deals and make certain that we are getting everything that we need.

1. Get a basket for each kid.

Trust me, you will thank me later. Not only does each child get to push their own basket, we also check out separately for each so all of their supplies are in their own bags.

2. Buy in bulk and split up as needed.

Every classroom needs a few boxes of tissues, right? So buy a large pack with 8-10 boxes and then split them up as needed. I give some to each kid and keep some around the house. Same thing goes for wipes, pencils, markers and more. 5 Tips for Successful School Supply Shop

3. Go through last year’s supplies.

We always shop our house first before buying any school supplies. The chances are that we usually have a few things left over from the year before.

4. Make it fun.

Each kid gets a list plus a little extra budget to get some cool things for their lockers and classrooms. Target has all you need and more. Glittery binders? Check. Sequined pencil cases? Check. Awesome backpacks to make a statement? Check.

5. Don’t have time to shop? Use Target School List Assist.

Target School List Assist is a revolutionary new way to make school supply shopping a breeze.

    Great tips. Always a smart move to buy bulk supplies.

  4. I LOVE the idea of giving each kid a basket! That would definitely make things so much easier for me when shopping for all 5 of mine!

  5. We totally do the basket for each kid in our house. I have a son with OCD and he cannot have his sister’s stuff touching his!

  6. Penelope

    I don’t want to overpay, but I also don’t want to run from store to store in search of the best deals. Target has great prices, and it’s my favorite place to shop.

  7. Crystal

    I love buying in bulk & splitting. Those big packs are often a great deal. Plus then I’ve got some to tuck away until Christmas when you know their supplies are low.

  8. I can not believe this time of the year has already arrived. I am all for making the process as easy as possible, especially because my kids’ supply lists look like I am purchasing enough for an entire village.

  9. Pam

    These are great tips! I can’t believe it’s back to school season already.

  10. Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    I’m glad you posted these! My daughter has to go school shopping soon so this was really helpful.

  11. I can’t believe it’s time for back to school already! It seems like summer just started!

  12. Rosey

    I could definitely stand to do some back to school shopping. We haven’t even started yet.

  13. Great ideas! I have 4 heading to school this year and I’ve been nervous about the back to school shop! These tips will be helpful!

  14. Target is a one stop shop for all your back to school needs! I love that they have basic and trendy items to choose from and the prices are so affordable!

  15. I just went through my son’s supplies from las year to see what can be reused. Still gotta purchase some more.

  16. I haven’t heard of Target School List Assist I will have to look into that thanks for sharing. As a former Special Education Teacher, I do agree it’s great for parents who are able to buy in bulk to share with the classroom. Teachers don’t get paid nearly enough and often have to supply their classrooms personally which is a huge financial burden from an already limited paycheck.

  17. We are starting shopping next weekend. Summer went by too fast.
