Getting the kids ready for going back to school? It’s that time of year, and if you are anything like me, you also dread back to school shopping. I try to get at least some of it done online. Amazon is the one-stop-shop for all things BTS – allowing moms, dads and kids to find products that are as unique and individualized as they are, which gives kids confidence walking through the halls on the first day of school.

Amazon makes it easier, with just about everything you need available at the click of a mouse.  Most schools send home a list of what the kids will need for the upcoming year either at the end of the school year prior or have one available online at some point over the summer. Then, of course, will come the “Surprise! You still need these things!” list that will come home on the first day of school, which is just done to mess with us parents who just want some normalcy back in our lives already, LOL.

back to school shopping

Yes, you can even find coveted glitter glue.

Between your facepalmed fingers, take a look at Amazon’s school supplies list and make your lives just a little easier. They deliver. You can stay home. No, you don’t even need to put pants on if you don’t want to, and no one will ever be the wiser.

It’s true.

From the basics like notebooks and pens to more fun items like “smelly markers” that are maybe a little nostalgic for mom and dad, your back to school shopping needs will be that much easier and faster to pick up in one fell swoop.  Regular felt tip markers in several varieties as well, if that’s your preference.

Don’t forget to check the kiddo’s backpack, lunchbox, and sneakers while you are at it. Goodness know they have likely destroyed (or ourgrown) everything by now. Yes, you can grab uniform gear as well- whatever you need.

That’s one less thing I need to worry about this week. Now, if only I can figure out how 3 kids ate 12 yogurts and 2 bunches of bananas in 2 days, I’d be in good shape. They are teaching that in common core now, aren’t they? I think I need a class on that…


  1. We did a lot of shopping online this year. Amazon is usually our go-to for everything. Shopping online just makes everything easier and i think all families should do it for back to school.

    We ordered a lot of things from Amazon this year and I was impressed at how many things we found. We found things we could not find at our local stores so I just quite going. I also loved the selection of left hander supplies. My youngest is a lefty and it is so hard to find left handed school supplies. I also love it is at the house in no time. I am an Amazon fan! Oh and BTW #Ihatecommoncore

    I really wish that Amazon had been around when I was a kid! It’s so true that you can get everything you need from school supplies to snacks. I always wanted unique stuff for school but it was hard in a small town where there aren’t many stores . . . Amazon would have helped.
