Back to School Supply Shopping at Staples (+Giveaway)



Every year I end up with a big list of school supplies to buy. My daughter’s going into first grade and my oldest son is going into third grade. So, where do I go? Staples!



I had to miss their fun Back to School Blogger event this year, but they graciously sent me some trendy school supplies and a gift card to get a jumpstart on my school supply shopping.



My four year old (who’s in the magical land of preschool didn’t need any supplies, but came with me shopping anyway).




Love the bin O’ bargains! I was agog.



I immediately snapped up glue sticks (my kids go through an insane amount of these). I got the maximum amount allowed — 6 4 packs @ $1.25 each. If you buy more than 6 packages, the price goes up to $2.49 each.




Crayola fine markers for 97 cents? Yes, please.




24 crayons for 50 cents a package!




Since I needed to buy computer paper, I was excited to see a easy rebate Hammermill Copy Paper.




I picked up some erasers.



Checked out some cute tech. Right now my kids share my iPad and iPhone — if we do get them their own devices, we’d need a cute and protective cases.



I was thrilled to see Packit on the shelves, as we use the Robots lunch bag for my youngest son’s lunch.  


I picked up several more pairs of scissors (we always seem to need new ones every year).



I picked up several notebooks at the price of 50 cents each.


And filler paper for 82 cents.


I found a pack of 5 Post-its for $5.



So, we’re ready for Back to School! Thanks Staples!

    I would use this gift card for school supplies…. This was our 1st year in school (Kindergarten) and I was so surprised how little the classroom has. Pretty sad actually but I’d love to help add some more supplies to their classroom.

  2. Rochel S says

    Almost ready! I would use it for the rest of the things I need for my son for school!

  3. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    Almost Ready! Still Have A Few Supplies To Buy, I’d Use The Gift Card To Finish Shopping!

  4. Stacey b says

    My son is ready! I’d use it to buy him school supplies through the year, as needed.

  5. Teresa says

    They’re “almost” ready! We’d use the gift card for ink for the printer and printer paper.

  6. livivua says

    i would buy some cool water bottles or canteen water bottles for snack time

  7. Jennifer says

    Well I’ve already bought school supplies but I’m sure there’s something I forgot. So I’d use it to get any last minute items, and perhaps buy a few things to send to school as extras for anyone who needs them.

  8. Candace B says

    Currently, my boys have all they need for school. I would use the gift card for items they may need later in the year.

  9. Linda Kish says

    I don’t have any kids in school right now. I would use it for printer ink.

  10. Janet W. says

    Yes, my grandson is ready for school! I would use this to buy him more supplies like crayons and colored pencils.

  11. Madonna says

    the kids are back to school already but I could use this to buy supplies that are additional as the year goes on.

  12. HS says

    kids are ready for back to school, I’ll use the gift card to get supplies for them.

  13. Sara Garcia says

    They are all officially in school and am getting mixed reviews from them lol. I would use the Staples gift card for printer supplies.

  14. jenn giannetto says

    my son is ready for school, he has actually already started! i would love to use the gift card for some printer paper and ink

  15. Thomas Murphy says

    My kids are ready for school. I would buy printer ink with the GF.

  16. Arena Thompson says

    Almost all ready! I still need a pair of fiskars and a cooler pack for his lunchbox :)

  17. caitlyn o says

    Yes; Binders are really expensive and would be the number one priority, followed by stocking up on pencils for the year.

  18. says

    This is would be a great blessing to win–I have quite a bit of supplies still left to buy! We are a homeschooling family, so we are like kids in a candy store at Staples! Thank you for the giveaway!

  19. Hayley says

    I’d use this card towards a new computer chair, I’m using a dining chair right now! My baby won’t be ready for another 5 years!

  20. klynn says

    I’d really like to see one last time their bedroom is cleaned before they head off to school. They share a room and having a clean space is important, but as soon as they clean it its messy again. Right now it has a pile of clothes they tried on that no longer fit, so I have to figure out how to pass them along to others.

  21. lauren says

    The kids are ready for school and i would use the gift card to buy ink for printing school reports and pictures.

  22. cheyrl b says

    I’d use it to help replace our printer that just died. My son needs one for school.

  23. Rebecca Orr says

    My son is ready for school! Supplies are bought and he has some new clothes too. If I won this, I would be donating it to his new teacher. I am sure she could use it through the year for random items she may need for the classroom. Thanks for the chance!

  24. shelly peterson says

    My son isn’t quite ready for school yet but almost. I would use it for a backpack.

  25. tammy shelton says

    We’re on our 2nd week of school and my Grandkids were not ready to go back. We all want longer summers.

  26. Jennifer Marie says

    Yes, my kids are ready for school. I would use this for printer paper and ink.

  27. Elisabeth Ashley says

    I would give the gift card to my sister, who is a middle school teacher and could really use some extra supplies.

  28. Nadene Adams says

    My kids are ready for school but I would use this card for all the little things that come up after the school year starts. Like book covers and more pencils.

  29. Laura J says

    We are about ready for Back To School! I would love to get Carter one of their cute kids backpacks, the one he is using was my nephews…so I know he would love a new one of his own! They have some cute car and airplane ones!

  30. Denise C says

    They’re in school already, so I sure hope they’re ready! 😉 If I won, I’d use this towards anything they bring up in the next few days they say they need.

  31. Tina W says

    I would use it to stock up on printer paper. I think the kid’s backpacks eat it or something, we go through a LOT!

  32. Susan Smith says

    My kids have gone back to school. I would use the gift card to buy paper, pencils and pens.

  33. Tabathia B says

    They just need a few supplies. My youngest still needs a 2 inch binder

  34. Dawn Keenan says

    WE started school today. My son and I both. I think we pretty much were ready. Don’t know all of the things that he needs for classes yet though.

  35. Marissa Lynette says

    My kids are good to go, but I could use some refills around the house! Pens, paper etc!
