What is “Clear the List”? It’s a nationwide movement to support teachers by purchasing items for their school supply lists.

Let’s help teachers get the supplies they need for the new school year! 🏫

It’s hard to believe it but school will be starting back in just a few weeks! Teachers across the country are working to prepare their classrooms for the new 2023-2024 school year, and this typically means stocking up on school supplies!

Did you know that many teachers pay for a majority of classroom supplies out of their own pockets? Yes, it’s true! Classroom supplies are not cheap and some school districts & families are struggling. This leaves many teachers to pay for school supplies themselves.

Teachers always go the extra mile for their students, so let’s show them how much we appreciate them by fulfilling their supply lists!

We want to help you get your list seen by our amazing Hip community and we’re going to help, too! Each day at 4:30 AM MST, we will be calling out a different state over on our Hip2Save Facebook page. If you are a teacher in that state, please share your list on the Facebook post! Hip Facebook fans can check out your lists to see if they can help, and Hip2Save will also be choosing lists at random times through August 26th to help cross items off, too!

It’s the perfect time to help support teachers with the Clear The List movement! ❤️

You can help by donating items from teachers’ Amazon shopping lists!

Teachers and educational professionals can head over to Amazon, create a classroom wish list, and then share their lists publicly. Even better, anyone can ‘donate’ items that are on the list, and after donating, donors can even leave a note or message letting the teacher know how much they are appreciated. So awesome!

Even better, if you post your list on social media and tag Amazon with #clearthelist, you may find that your list is cleared BY Amazon! So cool!

Teachers, follow these steps to make your classroom wish list on Amazon:

  • Head over to Amazon and hover over Account & List at the top of any page. Select ‘Create a List’ from the drop-down menu and name your list.
  • Hover over the three dots More menu on the right, and click Manage List to update your shipping address (this is important!) and other preferences like whether you want the list to be private or public. You can also designate whether your list is for an organization and if so, you’ll have the option to provide the website address of the organization.
  • Click ‘Save’ and then you can start adding items to your list!
  • To add items to your wish list, simply browse Amazon for products and then click ‘Add to List’ under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item’s product detail page.
  • Only list owners can make changes through Manage List. Both list owners and collaborators will be able to add and remove items.

If you’re a teacher, be sure to share your teacher list in the comments below so that readers can help clear your list! 🙌

    Hi! I am a first year teacher starting in 4th grade ELA in January! I am so excited to start with my students but it takes a village to decorate a classroom!

    How has technology changed your life? What will the future be like? What would have you done if you had these amazing tools in school.
    Please help me and my students use technology to shape the future. Take a look at my list and consider passing it along to individuals and business that are in a position to help. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for helping us spread the word! I am a high school painting teacher and we lack many basics to keep the room clean, such as soap and sponges. My kids would really love art smocks to keep their clothes clean so they can be free to express themselves!

    I am a Pre-K teacher at a Title 1 elementary school. I work with the most amazing children who come from all over the world. My classroom is a beautiful kaleidoscope of cultures. I am so blessed to work with these children and grateful that I can build the foundation as they begin their educational journey.

    I am hoping to create a fun stem evening for my students and their families. It would focus on cars, physics, and gravity. They would race Hot Wheels cars on different tracks, time their cars, modifies the cars, and the re-time their cars. I’m hoping to find local businesses help with either a snack or a meal, hot dogs and burgers. I would also like to have a mini car show at the event, maybe some students from the local college there to talk about automotive engineering, a salesman form local dealership to show off latest in automotive technology, and maybe someone that is into pinstriping/airbrushing to show the art side of the industry. I hope this activity can grow so I can invite all third grade classes on our school as well as the two neighboring schools.

    My name is Ms. Cervantes I am currently a college student, and next year I’ll be embarking on a new journey as a first-year teacher in a Title 1 district. I’m passionate about providing the best education possible for my future students, but as you can imagine, resources can be limited. Your support would mean the world to me and my classroom. Any donation, big or small, will directly impact the learning experiences of these students. Thank you for considering helping me create a nurturing and enriching environment for them.

    Thank you, 
    Ms. Cervantes
