Online back to school essentials.

Many multi-retailer sites have back to school specific areas:

Key things to remember when shopping online for back-to-school:
  • Compare prices on a comparison shopping engine like Become.com.

  • Keep shipping dates in mind - you don't want to be stuck without a lunch bag or backpack on the first day back.

  • Remember you can ship things directly to college, this will cut down on how many things the student needs to carry with them on the airplane/in the car
For K-12 students: For the college students:
  • OfftoCollege.com provides great information about the admissions process, financial aid and more AND they offer a great checklist that you can print out of everything you need to bring.

  • Bed Bath & Beyond has an entire section titled "We Love College" with a great checklist.

  • Amazon.com lets you shop by room type.
