Back to School with Oriental Trading


It seems like every year, back to school shopping sneaks up on me. I know some of your kids have already gone back, but mine won’t start until after Labor Day. I’m grateful for the extra couple of weeks because I truly need it to get all of the school shopping done for my three kids. After all, we’re not only talking about the seemingly never ending lists of supplies, but also clothes, shoes, haircuts, etc. I feel like we’ve been so busy this summer, and while I do love a good sale and all, sometimes I just like to save my time and energy by buying as much as possible at one time.

One of my favorite places to get a chunk of the school supplies is Oriental Trading. They have a huge selection of school supplies and the best part is that I don’t have to leave the house. I love doing this because you’re basically buying in bulk, which means you have leftovers. For me, this means that I have less to buy the next year. Or, if you’re not the stockpiling kind, you can always donate the leftovers.

Here is what I picked up this year.
Elmer’s® School Disappearing Glue Sticks: Comes in a pack of 12.


Pacon® Composition Book Wide Ruled: You can order just one of these, but we needed three so, I got three.

Pencil Boxes: These are pretty sturdy and come in a pack of 12.
Mood Rulers: These are just for fun and also come in a pack of 12.


Fidget Busy Blocks: You get 6 of these in a pack. In my opinion they are better than fidget spinners and I have enough that we can use some for those birthday parties that come up over the school year.


Crayola® Washable Pip-Squeaks® & Paper Set: This comes individually, as do most of the Crayola products.

Still needing a few school supplies, or haven’t started shopping yet? Be sure to check out Oriental Trading. You’ll get free shipping on your order of $49 or more. Click here to shop.
