For some parents, getting those back-to-school supply lists can make us a ball of stress. This year we’re not going to let it get to us and we’ll make an effort to experience the joy and excitement most kids feel before their first day back.

To wrap up the topic of school supplies we’ve compiled suggestions for each grade range that make sense for online and homeschooling families:

Best School Supplies for Preschool Students

Best School Supplies for Elementary Students

Best School Supplies for Middle School Students

Best School Supplies for High School Students

As an added bonus, check out these back-to-school sales and tax free weekend details!

Be sure to visit us each day as we prepare for a new school year with more tips to keep it simple this season. Please share them with your friends, whether they are online schooling, homeschooling, or attending a brick-and-mortar school, we’re in this together!  If you have any suggestions for more must-have materials that weren’t included in these posts, be sure to share them with us in the comment section below or comment on our Facebook page.
