Every parent dreads school supply shopping. You comb over the list of supplies your kid’s teacher insists they need and you just see dollar signs adding up. And the worst part is, you know some of those school supplies will need to be replaced because kids are kids, and things will be lost or broken. So the only answer is to head to your local dollar store! Dollar stores are all about helping you school shop, and you will probably find every single supply that you need on their shelves. Even specialty items!
So before you head to a big box store, check out our list of school supplies you can find on the cheap at the dollar store.
1 – Crayons
No matter how big the box your kid is required to bring, you’ll find them for only a buck at the dollar store. And since you already know half of them will be gone by January 1, you might as well buy a second box while you’re at it!
2 – Scissors
The dollar store is a great place to grab a new pair of scissors to start the school year. And feel free to pick up a new pair for yourself while you’re at it!
