BALTIMORE -- With the school year closing in once again, parents and students are stocking up on school supplies. Here's where you can shop to get the supplies you need and still save a few bucks in the process.


Walmart has already kicked off it's annual back-to-school sale. Items like composition notebooks, loose-leaf paper, and number two pencils are on sale online and in stores.

Composition notebooks and number two pencils are on sale for as low as 50 cents. You can even find a pack of loose-leaf paper for just under a dollar.


Target is also holding a sale on school supplies, kids clothing, backpacks, and more.

Office Depot

Boasting back to school savings up to 60%, Office Depot has plenty of classroom supplies on sale. If you like to buy supplies in bulk, Office Depot might be the store for you.

Best Buy

Looking to save on heftier items like laptops or tablets? Fortunately, there are deals for those items too. 13-inch Apple MacBook's are on sale starting at $749.99, a stark contrast from the usual price of $1000.


While shopping in person allows you to get your items right away, you can save considerably by shopping online, especially when you buy supplies in bulk. Amazon is offering a selection of back to school deals.

Instead of paying a few dollars for a pack of number two pencils in store, you could buy a case of 150 pencil for ten dollars online.

Other deals include this six-pack of Oxford college-ruled notebooks for nine dollars.

School supplies aren't the only items that can be cheaper online.

Amazon also has a wide selection of discounts on electronics and clothing.

Micro Center

Micro Center, which has a location in Parkville, and in Rockville, is offering back to school discounts on laptops, desktops, monitors, and other tech.


While you can find Apple products from other retailers, Apple has its own back to school sale going.
