Back To School Supplies List (Good Buy and Stock Up Prices for 2014)

Have you gotten your Back To School Supplies List yet?  When buying Back To School Supplies sometimes it can get confusing trying to figure out what is a good price for all the items you need.

I’ve created this Back To School Supplies List to help.  It has 47 of the most commonly needed supplies.  Next to each I have put the price point where you should buy the item.  Then to the right of that I put the stock up price.  When an item reaches that price grab a few extra to store for a rainy day.  Or even better donate them to a school or organization near you who can distribute then to those who need them.

Once you know what you should pay for items you can check out my Back To School Sales 2014 page (coming soon!) to find the best deals at nationwide locations.

Look for the items that fall into the price range on the Back to School Supplies List and you will know exactly when to buy.  The way to save the most for school is not to buy everything in one trip but spread it out over the summer.

Deals run all throughout July and August (except back packs which generally have the best sales AFTER school starts).

Remember that prices vary by area so yours might be a bit higher or a bit lower.  I got these prices from multiple websites and through my own experience.

Here is a list of Good Sale/Stock Up Prices for 2014.  If you want to take it with you to the store check out the Printable Version of the Back To School Supplies List.
