Reflecting on school supply shopping over the years, I realize it hasn’t really changed for me. After my little hometown got a super Walmart, I always knew I could find everything I needed as a student and my mom knew we’d always get the best price too. 🙌🏻

Fast forward many years and three kids later, I know Walmart is still the place we can check off all our back-to-school lists on a dime…or should I say on a quarter. 😉

I love that Walmart offers so many of its own amazing brands you won’t find anywhere else like Pen+Gear and Cra-Z-Art. Plus, I can still find plenty more trusted brands at the very best price like Five Star, Elmer’s, Ticonderoga, and so many more!

This year I have a 1st grader, a 5th grader, and I can hardly believe it, but my oldest is off to middle school! 🤯

That also means we had the biggest school supply shopping list yet so there was no question I was headed for Walmart to stay on budget.

Shopping online? Walmart makes school supply shopping by every grade super simple and they’ll even add all your school supply necessities to your cart with one click! 🤩 Simply click HERE or head to your Walmart app and search “school supplies” to shop by grade.

Here are some of my favorite affordable Walmart school supplies finds this year:

Here are some other ways you can save when school supply shopping at Walmart: 

1. Take advantage of free same-day pickup at Walmart or sign up for Walmart+.

Shipping can be expensive if you’re only needing to scoop up a few inexpensive school supplies. However, when you opt for free same-day store pickup not only do you avoid any added shipping charges on orders under $35, but you also save yourself the time and hassle of having to go in-store to shop.

Do your school supply shopping online, wait for a confirmation email, and head to the store with the email and your ID. Plus, you may even be able to pick these items up at your store’s curbside pickup area, meaning you never even have to get out of the car. #momwin!

Don’t want to leave the house at all? Start your Walmart+ membership so you can score free shipping with no minimum on most orders and you can try it with a free trial.

2. Watch for the school supply items as low as 25¢.

You can find many Walmart school supplies priced at just 25¢-50¢ making your savings incredible this school year! Keep your eyes peeled both in-store and online for super low prices. In fact, you can even bookmark this post for updates on the hot deals we’re seeing.

3. Always shop the clearance section.

Most Walmart stores have a selection of clearance items in the back that may include school and office supplies and are perfect for back-to-school supply shopping.

Starting at the clearance section will ensure you get the biggest bang for your buck. Plus if you can wait, you may find the clearance section fills up even more right after school starts, so you can grab additional items with even more savings.

Overall, I am SO stoked with what we were able to find at Walmart this year and it’s no surprise it ended up being a one-stop-shop for us since we were able to check off all three of my kiddos’ school supply lists. 👊🏼

Best of all, we stayed right on budget thanks to the supplies starting at just 25¢ which is a serious mom win! 👏🏻 Now back to soaking up the last of summer before it’s gone! ☀️

Here’s to a healthy and amazing 2022-2023 school year, Hip2Save families! 🎉👏🏻

    Some school districts in Alabama are supplying the students with what is needed in the classroom. I am glad to see this list because I still need to stock up on things when I hear “ I lost my crayons, I need some new ones, etc. I hear this about 3 to 4 times a year.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome, Mollie! So happy you could scoop up some savings on these items! 💕

    Ibotta has a deal on five star too buy 2 get a $1.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing! Good to know!

    Watch the price, of those Pen+Gear crayons. I tried to buy some, a couple of days ago, and they were ringing up at $0.97. Don’t trust the app, because the app’s price scanner lies.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the warning, Paul!

    • rocme2

      Ask them to price match the app, they will!

      • Lisa

        Yes, employees have known about the app having lower prices. They will adjust on the spot or go to customer service for money back. I check everything.

      • kcmiami88

        My Walmart never pricematches and that’s the biggest reason I stopped shopping there 😩

    I’m such a crayon snob! I won’t use anything but crayola lol although I do have to say that the bic crayons that don’t have paper wrappers are a close second! 😃

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing that with us, Steph! Hoping you can snag some Crayolas on sale! ❤️
