We are in the heart of summer break, and back-to-school may not be on our minds, but some of the best sales of the season are starting to pop up. 

It’s going to be a hot deal summer, and with time and inflation not on our side, now is the best time to swoop in for the buy.

1Redi-Tag Divider Sticky Notes

It’s hard to beat 50% off. Keep the kiddos organized with page divider notes that work in any notebook. Mark important pages in physical textbooks, write down quick study tips, and be prepared for anything. And if you use erasable pens, you can recycle these dividers for an impressively long time.

2Brett Backpack

Sleek, stylish, and at 30% off, the Brett Backpack is sure not to disappoint. You’ll have all of the basics: plenty of storage, great color options, and tons of pockets for organization. Plus, dual accessory holders and a padded laptop sleeve are perfect for hauling tech to and from the classroom. Use the code FRIEND to apply your discount at checkout. 

3Back To School Supply Box Grades K-5

Rather than sourcing your supplies separately, get everything you need all in one go. For $30, you can pick up everything your child needs for their first day back. There are 32 items packed in the box, including crayons, markers, glue, scissors, notebooks, and more. With this box, only get what you need (without storing extras).

Best of all, it’s machine washable. You can save even more by using the code FRIEND to receive 30% off your purchase.

6Watercolor Notebooks

Who said back to school notebooks had to lack luster? This set of six notebooks comes in beautiful colors that provide a pop of style on a budget. You’re more than welcome to customize the front of these notebooks with your name, a quote, or another phrase that’s important to you.
